National Medical Librarians Month: MAR Wants to Make You a Star – Win a Trip to MLA 2015!

Monday, September 8th, 2014

October is National Medical Librarians Month.  MAR would like to acknowledge the valuable work our medical librarians do by sharing your accomplishments, programs or value-added services with others.

We are asking you to send us your stories about any unique programs you developed, any outreach to the community you participated in, or any other value added services you offer to your organization or institution.

With your permission, we will share your stories on the MAR website throughout the month of October. Anyone who has made a submission by Oct. 4 will be entered into a random drawing to receive an award to cover registration and airfare to MLA 2015 in Austin, Texas.

We can’t wait to make you a “Star” – submit your story to nnlmmar@pitt.edu today!  (Multiple entries may be received from the same library, but please only one entry per person.)
