RESEARCH POSTER PRESENTATION DESIGN © 2012 www.PosterPresentations.com (—THIS SIDEBAR DOES NOT PRINT—) DESIGN GUIDE This PowerPoint 2007 template produces a 48”x96” presentation poster. You can use it to create your research poster and save valuable time placing titles, subtitles, text, and graphics. We provide a series of online answer your poster production questions. To view our template tutorials, go online to PosterPresentations.com and click on HELP DESK. When you are ready to print your poster, go online to PosterPresentations.com Need assistance? Call us at 1.510.649.3001 QUICK START Zoom in and out As you work on your poster zoom in and out to the level that is more comfortable to you. Go to VIEW > ZOOM. Title, Authors, and Affiliations Start designing your poster by adding the title, the names of the authors, and the affiliated institutions. You can type or paste text into the provided boxes. The template will automatically adjust the size of your text to fit the title box. You can manually override this feature and change the size of your text. TIP: The font size of your title should be bigger than your name(s) and institution name(s). Adding Logos / Seals Most often, logos are added on each side of the title. You can insert a logo by dragging and dropping it from your desktop, copy and paste or by going to INSERT > PICTURES. Logos taken from web sites are likely to be low quality when printed. Zoom it at 100% to see what the logo will look like on the final poster and make any necessary adjustments. TIP: See if your company’s logo is available on our free poster templates page. Photographs / Graphics You can add images by dragging and dropping from your desktop, copy and paste, or by going to INSERT > PICTURES. Resize images proportionally by holding down the SHIFT key and dragging one of the corner handles. For a professional-looking poster, do not distort your images by enlarging them disproportionally. Image Quality Check Zoom in and look at your images at 100% magnification. If they look good they will print well. ORIGINAL DISTORTED Corner handles Good printing quality Bad printing quality QUICK START (cont.) How to change the template color theme You can easily change the color theme of your poster by going to the DESIGN menu, click on COLORS, and choose the color theme of your choice. You can also create your own color theme. You can also manually change the color of your background by going to VIEW > SLIDE MASTER. After you finish working on the master be sure to go to VIEW > NORMAL to continue working on your poster.

In a two month span, the student author conducted research into the availability of environmental articles and collected over 250 academic papers and grey literature. Library tools and services provided by The University of Arizona Libraries on Southwestern Environmental and Health Issues specifically targeting Native American communities were used to near exclusivity. Locating articles for the database was done quicker than expected by a Library Science student (the author) who had some previous familiarity with academic databases such as PubMED™ and Web of Science™. The database itself was designed in Drupal as a Deep Web (not public) Internet project and completed before schedule. Over the course of this research it was discovered that by properly utilizing library resources its possible for motivated students at the collegiate level to create a database of articles that could aid underserved groups with their understanding of desired specialized issues. Gathering Articles For Databases In October 2013, the database was established. Users can now access specific data only for them, they can search and it will retrieve articles with detailed annotations. Over 250 articles slated to be annotated and added to the database To complete the acquisition of articles interlibrary loan services were used, we negotiated with librarians to find obscure texts, scanned print copies to virtual copies for the collection and communicated with professors from Northern Arizona University to get other articles. We proved that with some aid a student at University of Arizona could use every resource on the campus and find as many as 99.82% of the articles requested. Medical databases, scientific, humanities were all utilized. Our project was estimated to take 60 days, but by utilizing UofA library resources adroitly, this project was completed in less than 25 days. Its probable that any student could do a project of this size in 60 days. Native Americans in Arizona have asked SWESHC for this health information and will receive it. Users have the advanced searching tools they need to find specific texts such as articles on PCB. They can see the author and the date of publishing and decide if its right for them. RESULTS CONCLUSIONS UA Libraries made it possible for SWEHSC to create a powerful tool that serves Native American people in their specific environmental and health information needs. Students who have a dream academic project, can do it best with the library! The research has potential to be beneficial to the field of Library and Information Science, if it is correct, then students can be empowered to use library services to help their communities, or librarians can be encouraged to start creating targeted bibliographies of their own. The potential benefits will need to be studied so that we can decide if any benefits are inherent to this practice. REFERENCE Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality Report on Healthcare Literacy Preparing for an Epidemic of Limited Health Literacy: Weathering the Perfect Storm Ruth M. Parker, MD,1 Michael S. Wolf, PhD, MPH,2 and Irwin Kirsch, PhD3 ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Minorities in the United States are susceptible to being ill informed about their health, and current research suggests that almost all Americans could be more educated about their healthcare rights and information resources. In fact, “about 9 out of 10 American adults admit they have some problems with health literacy.” (National Assessment of Adult Literacy) Low health literacy has serious detrimental effects to a community which focused information could largely improve. Our main goal was to increase the access to information relating to health issues relating to air, soil and fish pollution on Native Reservation Lands. We knew that a complex database would not suffice for all audiences, so a simplified database was created to give the user potent searching power but also allow for the ease of use keyword searching of Google. The database is focused on delivering annotations that explain the paper at a 8 th grade reading level, the average reading level of adults. This was necessary as most health care information is at a 10 th grade reading level and people are falling through the cracks. (Kirsh,2005) Another objective was to research if there is a lack of information extant about the health problems of specific groups, e.g. Native Americans, illnesses that were brought upon by pollution and environmental disasters. The solution to this issue is by using library resources which were integral to creating databases for underserved communities like these. University Students watching the future, what will it hold? Research should be done to show how average motivated undergraduate students do with research projects. Would this work be too difficult for them to accomplish? Could we do a better job teaching them research methods? Tests could be done to see if these tailored databases have effects on literacy about the subject. In other words, do people learn more by these type of databases or are general library resources as good at teaching about a narrow topic? Are we increasing awareness of the healthcare rights of Native people in Arizona well enough? Would this database theory work as well in law, the sciences, where could it be expanded too, everywhere?
