Abstract/Summary OBJECTIVES: Translational research focuses on the bench-to-bedside information transfer process — getting the information from researchers into the hands of clinical decision makers. At the same time, researchers who manage international research collaborations could benefit from increased knowledge and awareness of online collaboration tools to support these projects. Our goal was to support both needs through building awareness and skills with online and social media. METHODS: The Library developed a curricula targeted specifically to academic researchers focusing on collaboration technologies and online tools to support the research process. The curricula will provide instruction at three levels: gateway, bridge, and mastery tools. The goal of Level One is to persuade researchers of the utility of online social tools. To develop the program, input was solicited from researchers identified as leaders in this area as well as focus groups of students to discover which tools are already being used. RESULTS: Training is being provided on those tools identified as most likely to engage researchers (Google Docs, Skype, online scheduling, Adobe Connect, citation sharing tools). The curricula is being delivered as workshops duplicated as podcasts and in other online media. CONCLUSIONS: Online and social media are practical tools for supporting distance collaborations relatively inexpensively while offering the added benefit of placing selected information in online spaces that facilitate discovery and discussion with clinical care providers, thus supporting the fundamental research processes at the same time as promoting bench-to-bedside information transfer.
