The poster describes the results of an outreach project at the Medical Library at Uppsala University library. During one year many different approaches were tested to increase the knowledge of the hospital staff’s needs, and to create new ways to communicate with them. Activities tried include lunch-time information meetings, “info point”, reference group discussions, Facebook and 15 minutes – short presentations for clinic meetings. The activities were evaluated and some will become a part of the regular library workflow. The poster highlights the fact that libraries can test many different approaches on a small scale, to see which are suitable for their library.
