Here’s a quick look at some of the events and happenings at the RML this week ending June 8, 2007:
NN/LM MAR’s Internal Advisory Board Meeting on June 6th
NYU’s Internal Advisory Board (IAB) for the NN/LM MAR met on Wednesday, June 6, for a two hour lunch and meeting. At the meeting, the Internal Advisory Board – comprised of Gustavo Cruz, DDS, Francesca Gany, MD, Lewis Nelson, MD, and Joel Oppenheim, PhD – discussed regional outreach issues and potential partners with Karen Brewer, PhD, NN/LM MAR Director; Kathel Dunn, MSLS, Associate Director; and Arpita Bose, MS, Outreach and Communication Coordinator. The IAB offered their insights on how to make an effective impact with a small amount of resources and identified potential partners in the four state region. The IAB confirmed the direction of NN/LM MAR in choosing a “theme” to focus on; NN/LM MAR will be doing this in its Strategic Plan, drawing on the regional needs assessment conducted this past Spring.
Keeping UP with NLM’s PubMed
Arpita Bose, Outreach and Communications Coordinator, will be teaching a class, Keeping Up with NLM’s PubMed, at Albany Medical College, Albany, NY on June 11. A special thanks to the Capital District Library Council and Christopher Tosh for their work in organizing the course!
A Belated Thank You
Sue Hunter and Miguel Figueroa exhibited at the AAPA (American Academy of Physician Assistants) Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, May 29th and 30th. They were aided by two wonderful volunteers: Margy Grasberger of Thomas Jefferson University and Kirsten Anderson of the Free Library of Philadelphia. Margy offered conference attendees some of the best 5-10 minute PubMed demonstrations we’ve ever seen while Kirsten showed how important public librarians are in providing health information. Our thanks to both volunteers!

Arpita Bose and Miguel Figueroa will be teaching four classes next week at NYU’s Ehrman Medical Library—Keeping Up with PubMed; PubMed for Experts; Docline Explained; and Getting Started with LinkOut.
