In March, a one day HINARI workshop was conducted at Johns Hopkins University, a U.S. based University, that like Tulane University has significant history as public health institutions with numerous global health projects. These institutions are similar in breath to the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine or Antwerp School of Tropical Medicine. The second workshop was hosted by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health/Welsh Library. Peggy Gross coordinated the workshop, Donna Hesson assisted and both served as facilitators. Also Jean Sacks assisted as a facilitator.

The target audiences for this 2nd workshop was identical to the initial program – Johns Hopkins faculty, staff and students who have linkages with HINARI eligible institutions, will be visiting eligible institutions, or have contact with students from eligible institutions and particularly students who will be returning to eligible institutions after completing advanced degrees.

The program included three 90 minute sessions that focused on Basic HINARI (Background about R4L programs, HINARI portal, HINARI PubMed), Advanced HINARI (e-book resources, health information on the Internet, brief overview of evidence based practice resources), Zotero reference management software and HINARI and R4L training tools. Similarly to the 1st workshop, all the material was placed in a Dropbox folder and those that attended the 1st two sessions received a certificate.
