Abstract: Throughout much of history, the majority of medical research and thinking has been based on studies of the human male. Anatomy and physiology have focused on obvious differences in reproductive structures, but evolving molecular and genetic technologies are increasingly enabling researchers to detect biochemical and other biological differences across body systems. Over the past decade, researchers and clinicians, including those at the University of Florida, have begun publishing study results and clinical experiences related to sex differences in symptom presentation, reaction to therapy, and prognoses. The University of Florida Health Science Center Library (HSCL), in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health’s Office of Research on Women’s Health and the National Library of Medicine, has made a commitment to disseminating information on research in sex and gender differences in health, facilitating the growth of basic research in this area, and helping develop a diverse clinical workforce able to recognize these differences and to apply this knowledge in clinical care. In support of these goals, the HSCL is currently undertaking a seven-part outreach effort related to sex and gender differences research. Librarians are introducing students to this field and its resources, with the expectation that such an introduction may lead some to focus on sex differences research, and others to be aware of the importance of sex differences in other areas of research and patient care. Early career faculty are also being introduced to these issues and resources, with the similar expectation that this may influence their choices of research focus and may raise awareness of the importance of sex differences in patient care. These outreach efforts include student training within existing coursework and orientations for undergraduate, medical, and PhD biosciences students and faculty training and professional development. Additional efforts include collection building and increasing document access in the areas of women’s health and sex and gender differences through open access publishing funding.
