Bioscientists, libraries and bioinformatic resources (English)
Abstract [en]

Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary scientific subject which connects biology, biomedicine and information science. Bioinformatics generates new biological knowledge by using computer methods and biological databases and can thereby play an important role for the understanding of diseases and be used for development of new medicines. The appearance of bioinformatics has thereby had a big impact on biomedical research. In this study, I have examined bioscientists' use of bibliographical databases, bioinformatic databases/web sites and bioinformatic tools and their needs of support concerning these resources. I have also examined which support the scientific libraries offer their users concerning bibliographical databases, bioinformatic databases/web sites and bioinformatic tools and have compared it with the needs the libraries think that the users have and the needs the users state that they have. The results from the study show that there is a wish for library support concerning bibliographical databases, bioinformatic databases/web sites and bioinformatic tools. The wishes of the respondents are in contrast to the libraries' view about bioscientists interest concerning bioinformatic databases/web sites and bioinformatic tools. A few libraries offer support concerning bioinformatic databases/web sites and bioinformatic tools. The knowledge among the library staff in bioinformatic databases/web sites and tools is limited. The scientific libraries' support concerning bioinformatic databases/web sites and bioinformatic tools should be developed and offered in collaboration with researchers and teachers within bioscience to better match the needs of the users.
