In 2016, the University of Washington Health Sciences Library (HSL) launched the Translational Research & Information Lab (TRAIL) in collaboration with four partners from across the campus. Capitalizing on each partner's skills, TRAIL coordinates data and innovation services focused on the needs of medical researchers through clinical data management, research data collection, cohort discovery, and emerging technologies. It includes a renovated, technology-enhanced space that has supported creative projects using virtual reality. Cross-partner collaboration has provided HSL librarians with opportunities to spread their proverbial wings beyond the confines of the library, providing key professional development opportunities and benefiting UW's clinical research community. The chapter will discuss and detail how HSL and its TRAIL partners have developed support models harnessing the skills of librarians to provide core support for clinical and biomedical tools laid the foundation for creative and mutually beneficial projects using new and emerging technologies and learning practices.
