2008 DLA Conference
Over 250 information professionals attended the Delaware Library Association’s Annual Meeting in Dover, Delaware on May 9, 2008. Delaware Health Source’s three consumer health librarians exhibited promotional items (featuring new logo and tagline) at a designed table. These items were: jumbo tote bags (distributed exclusively at this event), pens, bookmarks, and table banner. Consumer health librarians interacted with librarians and library staff members from libraries statewide, emphasizing distribution of new bookmarks within their host libraries. Meeting attendees who visited our exhibit table also received brochures about the consumer health libraries, reminding them of the information services we offer statewide. On a related note, the Delaware Academy of Medicine was honored during the day’s conference as an outstanding library in the state of Delaware. Also, the Academy’s electronic resources librarian presented a 10 minute overview of DelMIRA (www.delmira.org) e-resources at the DLA Business Meeting.
