SEX AND GENDER DIFFERENCES / WOMEN’S HEALTH OUTREACH PROJECT UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA 1 1. INTRODUCTION With 16 colleges, more than 150 research centers and institutes, over 4,000 faculty members, and more than 50,000 students, the University of Florida (UF) offers an important nexus for the investigation and application of information on sex and gender differences in health. UF researchers have already been among those publishing on sex and gender differences, making the UF Health Science Center a natural venue for growing new researchers, as well as new health professionals with an understanding of the importance of sex and gender differences in healthcare. The Health Science Center Libraries (HSCL), part of the George A. Smathers Libraries at the University of Florida (Smathers Libraries), are active partners in the education, research, training, and clinical needs of the Health Science Center colleges, centers, and institutes. With a strong liaison librarian program in place since 1998 (Tennant et al, 2001), the HSCL integrates information skills and resources instruction into curricula across the Health Science Center, provides support to basic sciences and clinical researchers through both document access and expert searching services, and strives to facilitate interdisciplinary collaborations by connecting researchers with one another. In 2013, the HSCL contracted with the National Library of Medicine and Office of Research in Women’s Health to perform the “Women’s Health/Sex and Gender Differences Outreach Project.” This project offered the team an opportunity to enhance existing relationships and build new relationships with researchers, educators, and clinicians from across campus and included the following elements: student training in the basic sciences and clinical fields, faculty training and professional development, collection building, open access publishing, facilitated collaboration development workshops, information dissemination through resource guides, and sharing project results through professional associations. Given the HSCL’s strengths, existing partnerships, and past work in this area, it will be most effective in reaching out to UF faculty and students about women’s health and sex and gender differences research in the following goal areas: Increasing sex differences research in basic sciences Employing innovative strategies to build a well trained, diverse and vigorous women’s health research workforce In order to achieve these goals, HSCL librarians will undertake a five part outreach effort, focusing primarily on awareness building and skills development on the part of UF students and faculty in the basic sciences and health professions, facilitating collaboration development among interdisciplinary researchers, and raising the visibility of existing on campus work in this area. HSCL librarians will also explore other opportunities to present, train, and facilitate collaboration during the project period. 1. Facilitating collaboration development Smathers Libraries personnel will lead two “Collaborating with Strangers” workshops using CoLAB Planning Series (CoLAB) facilitative processes for women’s health and sex and gender differences researchers on UF’s campus. These events are designed to introduce researchers to others in related fields with whom they may be able to develop meaningful connections and to encourage interdisciplinary collaboration. Given the positive response from attendees at the two CoLAB sessions during the 2013 project, it is expected that these workshops will lead to new and innovative research projects in women’s health and sex and gender differences.

SEX AND GENDER DIFFERENCES / WOMEN’S HEALTH OUTREACH PROJECT UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA 2 2. Raising visibility of and improving access to relevant UF research The HSCL will offer funds to UF authors publishing in open access journals or open access articles in traditional journals in the fields of women’s health and sex and gender differences. Given the successful funding of seven open access articles across disciplines in the 2013 project, it is expected that such funding will encourage publication in open access venues and will thus facilitate the dissemination of women’s health and sex and gender differences research results. The team will add high quality UF publications on research in sex and gender differences and women’s health to UF’s institutional repository in order to improve access to that research. Additionally, the team will enhance existing VIVO researcher profiles for those working in this field to enhance connections among faculty at UF and beyond. 3. Student and faculty training in the basic sciences and clinical fields Librarians will partner with faculty from the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Medicine, and Public Health and Health Professions to train students in the use of the Women’s Health Resources Portal while introducing them to the importance of sex and gender differences in research and healthcare. It is expected that introducing students to these concepts and resources early in their careers will lead all to be aware of the importance of sex differences across areas of research and patient care, and some to focus on women’s health and sex differences research. New teaching venues in 2014 include the Center for Precollegiate Education and Teaching and the Interdisciplinary Family Health course. The team will continue instruction in courses and programs addressed during the 2013 project including offerings for both basic science and clinical students. Librarians will introduce faculty directly to the Women’s Health Resources Portal and promote the training program “The Science of Sex and Gender in Human Health” via presentations at various venues, in collaboration with the Director of Educational Technology for UF Health. It is expected that introducing early career faculty to these resources will raise awareness of the importance of sex differences across research and patient care and may influence their choices of research focus. 4. Information dissemination through enhanced LibGuide and collection building All project team members will work to direct library users to the Women’s Health Resources Portal and the training program “The Science of Sex and Gender in Human Health” via promotion of the UF LibGuide “Women’s Health and Sex Differences Research,” created during the 2013 project. The LibGuide will be redesigned and enhanced to also include a tab with information on career development, mentoring, and networking in the disciplines of sex and gender differences and women’s health research. The HSCL will collaborate with the partners described above as well as the librarian subject specialist for Women’s Studies to identify items for possible purchase for the HSCL’s collection that would significantly improve access to women’s health and sex and gender differences literature. This will supplement the collection additions made through the 2013 project which included both journal back files and e books. It is expected that having relevant information resources related to women’s health and sex and gender differences will enhance the research and teaching of those faculty already working in these areas and will make such research and teaching more feasible for others considering working in these areas.

SEX AND GENDER DIFFERENCES / WOMEN’S HEALTH OUTREACH PROJECT UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA 3 5. Sharing project results through professional associations Project personnel will report the outreach activities and results of this project to colleagues outside of UF through presentations at meetings of professional associations. Given successful presentations at national and regional conferences during the 2013 project, it is expected that presenting at these venues will promote the Women’s Health Resources Portal to conference attendees and offer a model to other librarians interested in collaborating with their faculty and students on women’s health and sex and gender differences research outreach. Additionally, presentations will be made at non library professional association meetings, with an emphasis on basic science conferences. 2. TECHNICAL DISCUSSIONS a. Statement of Work Goals: #1 Increase sex differences research in basic science studies #6 Employ innovative strategies to build a well trained, diverse, and vigorous women’s health research workforce Objectives: 1. Facilitating collaboration development 2. Raising visibility of and improving access to relevant UF research 3. Student and faculty training in the basic sciences and clinical fields 4. Information dissemination through enhanced LibGuide and collection building 5. Sharing project results through professional associations Background Information: To accomplish the objectives listed above, the HSCL project team will partner with the Center for Precollegiate Education and Teaching, UF Health Interprofessional Education program, UF Health faculty development, the Department of Biology, the Interdisciplinary Program in Biomedical Sciences, the Genetics and Genomics Graduate Program, and the Center for Women’s Studies and Gender Research. By increasing awareness of and access to existing knowledge and encouraging relationships to produce new knowledge, these activities directly address two of the University of Florida’s three institutional missions (teaching, research) and through them, indirectly address the third UF mission (service). The fields of women’s health and sex and gender differences are mature enough to have produced research to present and provide access to, yet new enough to hold potential for increased development as a result of the awareness raising and collaboration forming activities proposed for this project. Approach and Methodology: 1) Facilitating collaboration development As a means for initiating collaborative relationships and projects among UF faculty and students, the team ran two CoLAB Planning Series facilitation processes in 2013, and plan to run two CoLAB workshops in 2014. These workshops, facilitated by de Farber and the Libraries’ CoLAB workshop project team, will be thematically designed to target faculty, students, and those from Gainesville’s

PAGE 5

SEX AND GENDER DIFFERENCES / WOMEN’S HEALTH OUTREACH PROJECT UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA 4 health care community who perform research, teach, or practice in areas related to sex and gender diversity in medical research and/or women’s health. Each workshop will be two hours in length. After an introduction to the theories of collaborative and creative processes, and overview of the project scope, participants will share individual profiles to spark one on one conversations of three to four minutes. Reading participants’ profiles results in highly focused conversations, often revealing hidden assets and commonalities of research, and project and/or academic goals. Rather than focusing on what students, faculty, and researchers lack in terms of support or resources, CoLAB processes reveal access to extant resources, capacities, and networks. Participants will meet an average of 12 “strangers” in each session. Participants will then share individual ideas and thoughts on such questions as: What synergies or connections did you discover? What events, information, processes and/or services would support today’s connections and ideas? What other things do you want to learn or know? What are your next steps? An online webpage featuring headshots, profiles, and contact information will provide a means for learning about “strangers” attending the two sessions and enabling more connections and conversations. 2) Raising visibility of and improving access to relevant UF research In order to raise the visibility of UF researchers working on women’s health and sex and gender differences and their research, the team will offer additional open access funding, add researchers’ works to the Institutional Repository, and enhance these researchers’ VIVO profiles. To facilitate access to women’s health and sex and gender differences research for interested parties beyond Florida and the Southeast, the HSCL project team will stimulate UF researchers’ publication of such research in open access formats. Schaefer will continue to coordinate the Open Access Publishing Fund, which will offer funding to defray the costs of article processing fees for publishing in open access or hybrid journals. In 2013, the project provided funding to publish seven open access articles; UF faculty and students who were awarded this funding were from the colleges of Dentistry, Liberal Arts and Sciences, Medicine, Public Health and Health Professions, and Veterinary Medicine. Likewise, the team expects to fund six to eight articles in 2014, from both the basic and clinical sciences. One condition of receiving Open Access Publishing funds was that articles be submitted to UF’s institutional repository (IR@UF). In addition to continuing this policy, the team will add to the IR@UF, with the authors’ permissions, other high quality UF publications on research in sex and gender differences and women’s health. The IR@UF is considered the digital archive for the intellectual output of the University of Florida community, and includes research, news, outreach, and educational materials. The University of Florida Libraries established and supports the IR@UF in order to offer a central location for the collection, preservation, and dissemination of scholarly, research, and creative production alongside historical materials from the University of Florida. VIVO is a semantic web tool designed to enable the discovery of research and scholarship across disciplines at our institution and beyond. All UF faculty have VIVO researcher profiles, which are automatically populated with information from UF enterprise systems and Thomson Reuters Web of Knowledge. The HSCL will hire a student worker to enhance these profiles for researchers working in women’s health and sex and gender differences research, by providing, for example, more robust publication and educational background information for those researchers. With support from Christopher Barnes, Interim Director of Clinical and Translational Science Informatics and

PAGE 6

SEX AND GENDER DIFFERENCES / WOMEN’S HEALTH OUTREACH PROJECT UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA 5 Technology, the team will determine an appropriate mechanism in VIVO for collocating profiles of these researchers. 3) Student and faculty training in the basic sciences and clinical fields To work toward the goals of “increasing sex differences research in basic science studies” and “building a well trained, diverse and vigorous women’s health research workforce,” the discipline of sex and gender differences research will be introduced within the curricula of a number of classes, academic programs, and professional development venues. Additionally, the HSCL will host a day long workshop on women’s health and sex and gender differences research with presentations, roundtables, and training for attendees on the Women’s Health Resources Portal. The team will host a one day workshop on Gender and Health for UF faculty, students, and staff as well as interested parties from the local community (e.g. public health workers, faculty from Santa Fe College). The workshop will include a keynote presentation by a national leader in sex and gender differences research; presentations by UF researchers on their work in this field; roundtable discussions to further dialog; and a session presented by the team highlighting the Women’s Health Resources Portal, the online training program “The Science of Sex and Gender in Human Health,” and other free materials from the NLM and ORWH. The format is designed to accomplish several objectives of the project. By bringing together faculty, students, and staff from UF and beyond with an interest in women’s health and sex and gender differences research, the workshop will help facilitate collaboration among these diverse populations. We will target past attendees at the CoLABs for participation in the workshop, as these individuals have already expressed interest in interdisciplinary collaboration. By providing a venue for UF researchers to present on their research in this area, the workshop will help raise visibility of that research. Finally, the session on NLM and ORWH resources serves the instructional purposes of our project, by introducing this broad population to additional resources in a demonstrated area of interest. Tennant has extensive experience in conference planning (nine years planning annual Florida Genetics Symposium; program planning for professional association conference); this experience will translate to this smaller workshop. New settings for training in 2014 include the Center for Pre Collegiate Education and Teaching, the Interprofessional Education program (IPE), and UF Health’s Faculty Development workgroup. The UF Center for Precollegiate Education and Teaching (CPET) focuses on promoting excellence in science, math, and technology at the secondary education level through a variety of outreach activities. Its Science Quest program immerses rising 10th graders in various science disciplines to introduce them to and stimulate an interest in science as a career. Students accepted into this summer program live on campus, attend numerous educational sessions, and visit research laboratories and other facilities. It is expected that introducing students to research in sex and gender differences and women’s health as viable research disciplines early in their education may spark an interest in such careers in some students. The team will also work with high school teachers who are taking part in CPET’s Summer Science Institute (SSI), a professional development program that is focused on updating the content knowledge and laboratory experience of these teachers. The HSC Libraries’ librarians have a long tradition of meeting with these students and teachers to provide bibliographic and database instruction; extending into these populations for the current project is a natural match. The Interdisciplinary Family Health (IFH) course, part of the IPE program, allows over 600 students at a time, from across the Health Science Center, to work with families in the local community on

PAGE 7

SEX AND GENDER DIFFERENCES / WOMEN’S HEALTH OUTREACH PROJECT UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA 6 identifying major health concerns and determining next steps for action. IFH students come from colleges and departments across the Health Science Center including Clinical and Health Psychology, Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Physical Therapy. During the IFH course, interdisciplinary groups of students are matched with families of varying socioeconomic backgrounds; issues of women’s health are relevant and topical for many of the IFH families. In collaboration with Dr. Amy Blue, Associate Vice President for Interprofessional Education at UF Health, Edwards will integrate instructional sessions and materials on the Women’s Health Resources Portal into the orientation for the IFH course. Edwards is well suited to work on this integration, given her experience in acting as a small group leader in the IFH program over the past two academic years and her efforts this year to more broadly integrate information about library resources across the program. To facilitate faculty and staff training librarians will partner with UF Health’s Director for Educational Technology, who is leading the initiative for faculty development across all six colleges in the Health Science Center. This collaboration will include opportunities to create faculty development sessions featuring the Women’s Health Resources Portal and “The Science of Sex and Gender in Human Health” training program and designed to leverage cross discipline learning and potentially facilitate interprofessional research. Additionally, in order to continue exploring ways to integrate the topics into faculty and staff development, the topic of women’s health and sex and gender differences will be discussed in meetings of the faculty development workgroup for UF Health. The project team will continue to provide an introduction to sex and gender differences research and use of the Women’s Health Resources Portal to many of the same types of students that we reached out to in 2013, including: undergraduate genetics students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (now with a new partnership with the professor who teaches the class in the fall – Marta Wayne, as well as the existing relationship with Michael Miyamoto’s class in the spring), incoming PhD students in the College of Medicine (IDP students); incoming PhD students in the interdisciplinary Genetics and Genomics graduate program (including students from the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Agriculture and Life Sciences, and Medicine); undergraduate students minoring in health disparities in society (offered through the Center for Women’s Studies and Gender Research in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences); students in the Junior Honors Medical Program (a combined baccalaureate/MD program offered through the College of Medicine) with a focus on Rural and Urban Underserved Medicine; and interdisciplinary graduate students. In addition to the courses and programs identified above, the HSCL team will continue to work with faculty collaborators in UF Health and College of Liberal Arts and Sciences to find other programs or courses that would benefit from instruction on sex and gender differences research and introduction to the Women’s Health Resources Portal. Potential audiences include faculty and graduate students in the Clinical and Health Psychology (CHP) department who are studying gender and sex differences in pain perception and chronic pain as well as other CHP members studying aspects of sex and gender differences (Edwards liaison); faculty and students in the Department of Neuroscience (Garcia Milian), and the Public Health programs on campus (Schaefer). Activities will include, but not be limited to, presentation at department meetings and extensive promotion of the CoLABS, Open Access Publishing Fund, and the Women’s Health Portal/training modules. 4) Information dissemination through enhanced LibGuide and collection building Women’s studies and gender differences is an interdisciplinary field at the University of Florida with activities occurring throughout campus. In 2013, the HSCL project team developed a LibGuide that

PAGE 8

SEX AND GENDER DIFFERENCES / WOMEN’S HEALTH OUTREACH PROJECT UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA 7 focused on support of sex and gender differences research. LibGuides, a product of Springshare, can be used to integrate resources in defined subject areas useful for students and faculty researchers. The guide includes links to the Women’s Health Resources Portal and information on the free training program “The Science of Sex and Gender in Human Health”. The LibGuide will be redesigned to also include a tab with information on career development, mentoring, and networking in the disciplines of sex and gender differences and women’s health research. Although the LibGuide was introduced in all training and workshops developed for the 2013 project, usage statistics were disappointing, and in 2014, the team will make extra effort to promote the LibGuide and NLM resources (portal and training program) in all presentations and instruction, through newsletters, the library’s website, and other means. HSCL librarians will continue working with the subject specialists from the Smathers Libraries to include the Women’s Health Research Portal on LibGuides which they support and introduce the faculty who teach in the Women’s Studies curriculum to these resources. Because research builds on what is currently known, the HSCL project team proposes acquiring access for current investigators and students to documents on the methods used and results obtained in previous research. Schaefer will identify appropriate documents for one time purchase including relevant books, journal backfiles, videos, electronic products such as software and data sets. The HSCL’s existing connections and consortial borrowing arrangements (CONBLS, UBorrow) mean that these purchases have the potential to reach many researchers in the state of Florida and/or in the Southeast Atlantic region. Examples of resources under consideration for purchase include but are not limited to: Backfiles of the journals Seminars in Reproductive Medicine and Reproductive Sciences Books: Studies on Women’s Health (Oxidative Stress); Reproductive Endocrinology (7th ed); Atlas of Pelvic Anatomy and Gynecologic Surgery (3rd ed); Musculoskeletal Health in Women; Diabetes in Women: Pathophysiology and Therapy; Sex Differences: Summarizing More than a Century of Scientific Research; Female Experience: Four Generations of British Women Psychoanalysts on Working with Women; Current Directions in Gender Psychology; Respiratory Diseases in Women; Gender and Health: Major Themes in Health and Social Welfare; Depression in Adolescent Girls: Science and Prevention; Surgery for Urinary Incontinence; Handbook of Gender, Culture, and Health; Drugs for Pregnant and Lactating Women. 5) Project dissemination through professional associations Tennant, Edwards, Norton, Schaefer, and Garcia Milian will promote the outreach activities of this project to colleagues outside of the University of Florida via presentations at professional association conferences, with a new emphasis this year on basic science conferences. Tennant will submit a poster abstract to the American Society for Human Genetics annual conference (a venue in which she successfully presented in 2010); Garcia Milian will do the same for the Society of Neuroscience. Information will also be disseminated to basic scientists through poster presentations at research days on the UF campus. Public health (Schaefer) and health literacy (Norton) venues will also be targeted; as well as library associations – the Medical Library Association in May (Edwards) and the Special Libraries Association in June (Schaefer). The team will also write a paper on the 2013 project for publication consideration in a peer reviewed journal such as Journal of the Medical Library Association or Medical Reference Services Quarterly. Description of Organizations Participating in the Project: Within the University of Florida, women’s health and sex and gender differences are addressed by many different colleges and departments. The HSCL’s well developed library liaison program has forged many

PAGE 9

SEX AND GENDER DIFFERENCES / WOMEN’S HEALTH OUTREACH PROJECT UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA 8 relationships with partners in UF Health (Tennant et al., 2001). This outreach project is designed to continue collaborations with existing partners and to build new relationships and partners across the university. In order to increase basic science research in sex and gender differences and help develop the women’s health research workforce, awareness building and instruction are needed across educational levels (high school students and teachers, and university undergraduate students through faculty) and across disciplines. New Organizational Partnerships for 2014: Center for Precollegiate Education and Training (CPET). CPET’s programs are developed around five goals: to promote excellence in STEM disciplines; foster interdisciplinary science education; forge partnerships among researchers, schools, community, and industry; integrate research into National Education Goals; and foster skills of research students and faculty to benefit the public. Tennant and Garcia Milian have both provided instruction to CPET programs in the last several years. UF Health: Interprofessional Education (IPE). Edwards has been a small group leader in the Interdisciplinary Family Health course (the key component of the IPE program) since 2011. The IFH course has a wide impact across UF Health and even includes students outside of UF Health. Currently the course includes students in the Colleges of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Public Health and Health Professions. Edwards is also working with Dr. Amy Blue, the new associate vice president for interprofessional education to expand the library’s involvement with faculty and student orientations for the IFH course. The newly expanded library component of the IFH orientation will include an emphasis on women’s health and sex and gender differences in general and the Women’s Health Resources Portal specifically. UF Health Faculty Development. Edwards has been an active member of the UF Health Faculty Development Workgroup since 2010. The head of the workgroup, Dr. Randy Graff, is a strong advocate for the HSCL and has been willing to collaborate and consult with the library on past activities. For this project Edwards and Graff will explore ways to leverage the workgroup and Graff’s role as a leader in cross disciplinary faculty development to engage faculty and staff across the AHC in relevant professional development opportunities. Partnerships Continuing from 2013: College of Liberal Arts and Sciences: Department of Biology. Tennant has been an instructor in the undergraduate genetics class taught by Miyamoto since 1996. Miyamoto’s genetics students have presented their poster sessions on genetic disease manifestations in the HSCL for the last six years. In 2014, the section taught in the fall semester will also be targeted for instruction (Wayne). College of Medicine: Interdisciplinary Program (IDP) in Biomedical Sciences. The IDP program confers doctoral degrees in six concentrations: Biochemistry & Molecular Biology; Genetics; Immunology & Microbiology; Molecular Cell Biology; Neuroscience; and Physiology & Pharmacology. Tennant has been the liaison to this group since 1996 and regularly presents in their orientations. Genetics Institute: Genetics and Genomics Graduate Program. Tennant has served as liaison to the Genetics Institute since 2001 and has provided support for the Genetics and Genomics Graduate Program since its inception, regularly presenting in their orientations. College of Liberal Arts and Sciences: Center for Women’s Studies and Gender Research, Health Disparities in Society undergraduate minor. Guyer has been a prime mover in establishing UF’s newly approved minor (2012) in Health Disparities in Society, which is housed in the Center for Women’s Studies and Gender Research. HSCL librarians worked with Guyer’s classes in the minor as part of the 2013 project.

PAGE 10

SEX AND GENDER DIFFERENCES / WOMEN’S HEALTH OUTREACH PROJECT UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA 9 College of Medicine: Rural and Urban Underserved Medicine (RUUM) Track. This program offers early medical school acceptance to exceptional undergraduate students with an interest in serving rural and urban underserved populations. In 2013 HSCL librarians have collaborated with Guyer in her “Current Issues in Medicine” course. In 2014 the team will integrate NLM materials into appropriate classes and venues for Dr. Nancy Hardt, who is now the lead for RUUM. Evaluation: Evaluation Goals The goals of the evaluation are designed to provide support for, and a way to measure the success of, overall program goals. As such, the evaluation goals and questions will be directly tied to project goals and objectives. The evaluation is designed to gauge the project’s success in several areas including: 1. Facilitating collaboration development 2. Raising visibility of and improving access to relevant UF research 3. Student and faculty training in the basic sciences and clinical fields 4. Information dissemination through enhanced LibGuide and collection building 5. Sharing project results through professional associations Evaluation Description & Methodology The evaluation was designed to align with the project goals and to meet the needs of the project stakeholders, which is a blend of the “objectives oriented approach” and the “participant orientated approach” described by Fitzpatrick, Sanders, and Worthen (2004). The following groups have been identified as entities with a direct interest in the project and its results. The most obvious and significant stakeholders are the funding agencies, the National Library of Medicine and the Office of Research on Women’s Health, due to the fact that they identified the project needs and provided funds to carry out the work for the project. Additional stakeholders include the project team and the partners at the University of Florida because project success will not only reflect upon the project team, but potentially impact the landscape for women’s health research and partnerships with the HSCL. As with any evaluation, the audience for the evaluation report consists primarily of the stakeholders and this will be considered throughout the evaluation and reporting process. Other factors influencing the evaluation methodology include the abbreviated nine month project period, regulation barriers, and other time constraints. Therefore, evaluation feasibility is a concern and the evaluation described below will meet the evaluation goals while endeavoring to focus on what is feasible given the constraints mentioned above. The following table illustrates the various evaluation elements. The evaluation questions are tied to the project and evaluation goals. Information needed to answer the evaluation questions is described as well as the information source(s) and the method to collect the information. At this time no data collection instruments have been finalized, but that task will be finished as early into the project period as possible. Note that the last column of the table indicates the responsible party for that aspect of the evaluation. “Team” designates the project team – Tennant, Edwards, Norton, and Schaefer. If funded, the team will hire a professional evaluator, David Miller, PhD. Miller is a Professor of Research Methods and Evaluation in the College of Education, and is the Director of the Collaborative Assessment and Program

PAGE 11

SEX AND GENDER DIFFERENCES / WOMEN’S HEALTH OUTREACH PROJECT UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA 10 Evaluation Services (CAPES). Miller performed the evaluation of the 2013 CoLABs under the team’s previous NLM/ORWH project. The team has met with Miller and through his expertise, delineated which evaluation activities would be performed by him and which by the team. The team expects that this more formal evaluation process will facilitate this aspect of the project, and provide a high level of evaluation data.

Facilities The University of Florida is a large, land grant, public educational research institution with a faculty of approximately 4,000 and a student body of approximately 50,000. UF is Florida's largest university, the nation's fourth largest, and traces its beginnings to a small seminary in 1853. Since 1985, UF has been a member of the Association of American Universities, the prestigious higher education organization comprised of the top 62 public and private institutions in North America. UF is home to 16 colleges and more than 150 research centers and institutes. The University offers PhDs in more than 90 fields and Master's degrees in more than 120 fields. The Health Science Center Libraries provide services and programs to support the Colleges of Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Public Health and Health Professions, and Veterinary Medicine; the McKnight Brain Institute; the University of Florida Genetics Institute; the Emerging Pathogens Institute;

PAGE 19

SEX AND GENDER DIFFERENCES / WOMEN’S HEALTH OUTREACH PROJECT UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA 18 the Institute for Child and Health Policy; the Institute of Aging; Shands HealthCare; the University of Florida/Shands Cancer Center; and the University of Florida Physicians Clinics (12 primary and 21 specialty care). The HSC Libraries also support 52% ($291,000,000) of all campus research awards by providing up to date research content and information access and management support. Since 1999, the HSC Libraries have operated a Liaison Librarian program to facilitate partnerships with academic faculty and programs by assigning each HSC college or department a dedicated librarian who works closely with its faculty, staff and students. The HSCL currently employs 10 professional librarians and 20 staff. Presentations to students and faculty are expected to occur either in classrooms and auditoriums on the campus of the University or in the Health Science Center Library’s Instruction Lab. The keynote address and presentations for the workshop on Sex and Gender Differences in Health/Women’s Health will be held in one of the University’s large lecture halls. Workshops round tables will be held in several of the meeting rooms or large group study spaces within the HSC Library. All of these spaces have computers with Internet access and USB ports, projection systems and large projection screens or monitors as well as accommodation for participants with physical limitations. Many of these presentation spaces also have laser pointers and/or clip on microphones. The LibGuide and all electronic books and journals that are purchased with contract funding will be hosted on the library system’s reliable servers and connections, with information technology personnel available to address any service disruption. All video products purchased will be either streaming or in DVD format, the latter being the hard format for which UF classrooms or mobile carts are equipped. The CoLAB workshops will be conducted in one of several large open spaces in either the Health Science Center or a campus library. e. Past Performance In 2013 Librarians at the University of Florida Health Science Center Library (HSCL) partnered with the ORWH and the NLM in an initial round of funding for women’s health and sex and gender differences. Project objectives focused on promoting a greater awareness of the research opportunities in and the resources available for women’s health and sex and gender differences. To accomplish these objectives, HSCL librarians undertook a multi part outreach effort including student training, faculty training, collection building, open access publishing, and facilitating collaboration. Librarians introduced students across the university to this field and its resources through course integrated instruction and orientations for undergraduate, medical, and PhD biosciences students. Early career faculty were also introduced to these issues and resources through faculty training and professional development (specifically in the “Introduction to Clinical and Translational Research” course), with an expectation that this may influence their choices of research focus and raise awareness of the importance of sex differences in patient care. To facilitate collaboration, the library has hosted two “Collaborating with Strangers” workshops where researchers participated in a series of speed meetings with interdisciplinary colleagues who share their interest in sex and gender differences. To expand access to UF research on sex and gender differences and women’s health, the project funded the publication of seven articles in open access journals. To expand UF researchers’ access to other work in these fields, the library purchased both journal back files and e books in this subject area. The team presented six posters and talks at national and regional conferences. Successful elements of this previous work will continue and in some cases be expanded in the proposed iteration of the project. Prior to the 2013 award, the HSCL had worked with a number of partners in other capacities:

Your plans clearly meet the goals of the Women's Health Resources Dissemination Project to improve the level of awareness regarding sex and gender difference research in basic science, sex specific investigations, and gender disparities in basic, clinical and translational research and application and involve a wide range ofpartners As Director of Health Science Center Libraries, I realize that the work in this proposal will strengthen our existing relationships within the Academic Health Center, particularly with the College of Medicine, and will create new relationships with the undergraduate programs from which the health science center's education programs draw students. In this way, the Health Science Center Libraries can partner to extend our service to create a seamless pipeline from our undergraduate campus to our medical and other health science schools where we will educate future clinicians and clinical researchers. This proposal also creates opportunities to collaborate with other libraries and librarians on campus. I will gladly support the activities of the grant and of the librarians who are working with you to accomplish the goals and tasks involved. cilia Botero MLS, A IP A sociate Dean Geo e A.

I am writing this letter in support of the University of Florida Health Science Center Libraries' proposal for funding for the promotion of the Women's Health Information Portal. In my position as the Director of Educational Teclmology for the UF Health I am leading the effort towards faculty development across the six colleges of the Health Science Center. I feel that there are multiple opportunities for collaboration, including integrating instructional sessions and materials on women's health and sex and gender differences into development offerings for faculty and staff, cross marketing learning opportunities to each of the colleges and centers, and facilitating interprofessional research. I look forward to partnering with you on this project and please let me know if you need further information or assistance Sincerely, Randy Grau, Director of Educational Technology UF Health The Foundation for The Gator Nation An Equal O pportunity Institution

I can envision outreach and instructional sessions related to the role of the basic sciences i n sex and gender differences, as well as introductions to the many resources available through the funding agencies. motivated students in a vari ety of collaborative programs offering laboratory instruction, ongoing research related experiences, and career explorations in authentic research environments. CPET administers its own programs in collaboration with more than 3 5 0 research faculty, and ass ists scientists in developing, implementing, and evaluating their own research outreach programs by providing a well established infrastructure, pedagogical expertise, and a 5 5 year history of productive interactions with departments across campus and scho ol districts across Florida (see http://www.cpet.ufl.edu). A partnership between the Health Science Center Library and CPET will contribute significantly to the teaching/learning research aligned experiences for the ~200 secondary school science and heal th teachers who participate in our Summer Science Inst itutes as well as for the 90 talented students from the three Florida consortia of rural school districts engaged in week long residential programs at UF funded by a grant from the Florida Department of Education (Science Immersion Scholars). We are excited at the new experiences that our teachers and students will be exposed to through this project. I enthusiastically support th e proposed partnership and look forward to planning with you Sincerely, Mary Jo Koroly, Ph.D. Research Associate Professo r, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, College of Medicine and Director Center for Precollegiate Education and Training, Academic Affairs

Tennant, PhD, MLIS University Librarian Health Science Center Libraries Bioinformatics Librarian UF Genetics Institute University of Florida PO Box 100206 Gainesville, FL 32610 0206 Dear Michele, I read with interest your plans for the RFP on sex/gender difference research from the National Library of Medicine/ NIH Office of Research on Women's Health. I agree that outreach and instruction to our undergraduate genetics class is an excellent match f or this project, as the students in the course are pre health professional and pre biomedical research students. I already teach my students in my genetics class, PCB 3063 about the ways in which gene expression differences between the sexes may impac t hea lth, wellness, and disease, as my own research in Drosophila bears on this area; and I'm interested in expanding this material to discuss how gender affects health outcomes as well. Your plans for including the Women's Health Resources Portal and a discus sion of gender and sex differences in your informatics sessions in the fall of 2014 will provide a n excellent supplemental introduction to the discipline to these students, who will soon be starting their professional or graduate level studies. I support your expansion of the topic in our undergraduate genetics course, and look forward to integrating information on sex and gender differences research into my lectures as well. I may well create additional courses in the near future, which will certainly h ave related content, and if so I will be looking to you and your project for essential support! Thank you for thinking of me as a partner in this endeavor, and please let me know if you need any additional information. Sincerely, Marta Marta L. Wayne Ph. D. Professor of Biology mlwayne@ufl.edu
