If you cannot see where you are going, ask someone who has been there before. ― J Loren Norris
We know that in the ever changing environment of healthcare, hospital librarians have had to adapt their services and skills to these changes. Those that have risen to the challenge of change have much to offer medical librarians new to the profession, new to health sciences librarianship, and to those adapting to technology changes, or adapting to being a solo librarian.
- Are you someone who could benefit from having a mentor?
- Or are you someone who would like to share your expertise and experience with others?
If you answered Yes to either question, please contact Michelle Burda to learn about our new program: firstname.lastname@example.org or (412) 624-1589.
