Revolutions Under Way: Capture the Moment

Health Sciences librarians in all settings are presented daily with challenges in new areas from new patrons and with new generations of users who are not accustomed to coming to any library. Reaching out to demonstrate value in clinical or academic settings is becoming the new norm. Capturing each opportunity in innovative ways is a revolution under way.

We have on our blog five wonderful examples of innovative outreach programs that are “Revolutions Under Way” and we invite you all to spend some time viewing these presentations before MLA to absorb the splendid work these folks are doing and to begin to frame topics for discussion at the program on May 21. By all means do jump into the blog with comments and questions for our presenters. We will continue the discussion at our session, “Revolutions Under Way: Capture the Moment” on Monday morning, May 21, 10:30 am – 12:00 pm, in the Grand Ballroom KL.

Please remember folks that we are hoping for a very “green” conference so there will be no printed handouts and we ask you not to print out the presentations yourselves. Please make notes and bring them with you.

And now folks… over to our presenters…check out their interesting PowerPoint presentations and bios at URL http://gml.lib.uci.edu/mla2007.html
