GHSLA / AHSLC Joint Meeting, April 2016

This year the Georgia Health Sciences Library Association (GHSLA) is partnering with the Atlanta Health Science Library Consortium (AHSLC) to co-host the annual meeting. The meeting will be held in Decatur, Georgia on April 7-8, 2016.

The theme for this year’s meeting is “Health Science Librarians: Keys to Healthy Communities.”  On April 7, we’ll have a full day of activities, including business meetings for GHSLA and AHSLC, a panel discussing the importance of health science librarians for consumer health, and lightning rounds. A half-day CE, “Planning Outcomes Based Outreach Programs,” will be offered on April 8th.

The theme of the lightning rounds is “Lightning Librarians: How are you key to your community?” This event will give library staff members a chance to share novel ideas about how the library and its staff are an integral part of the community they serve, whether it’s students, health care professionals, faculty, or the public. If you have an idea for a topic, please send a short abstract (less than 100 words) to program_committee@ghsla.org by January 15, 2016.

Updates regarding registration and other announcements will be sent to the listervs and posted on the GHSLA and AHSLC  websites. Stay tuned!
