Formatted Abstract/Summary This paper reports the findings and experience of the Building the Brazilian Bridge project for Clinical Librarianship. In 2005 a project group was established between the Department of Information Studies University of Campinas, Brazil and the Department of Information Science, Loughborough University, UK.

The purpose of the project was to develop a Clinical Library service for a hospital in Sao Paulo State, Brazil. The methodology adopted was to use the UK experience to best advantage in the Brazilian setting. Both countries provide a state funded health service and whilst not identical in operation or delivery enough similarities were identified to suggest that the UK experience would fit the Brazilian setting.

The constants in this pilot study are the professionals, Academics, Librarians and Doctors; in both countries all have the same objectives and challenges working in a state funded service. Initial talks were begun with the medical and library staff in 2005.Consolidation of the discussions was confirmed in 2006.

In 2007, members of the research team were based in Department of Information Science, Loughborough and were able to scope the UK experience. Based on these initial findings and the literature, research commenced on the pilot study in 2008. A Clinical Champion has now been established, clinical departments chosen and the pilot is flying.
