Share Your Story and Win a Trip to MLA 2014 in Chicago!

Friday, October 4th, 2013

October is National Medical Librarians Month!  Share Your Story and Win a Trip to MLA 2014 in Chicago!

Are you doing something to highlight your services and contributions to research, education and improved patient outcomes?  Perhaps you are promoting the importance of understandable health information as part of Health Literacy Month?  Or, maybe you have presented results from the Value Study to your stakeholders?

We invite you to share stories (and photos) that reflect how you are taking an active role in promoting the value of medical librarian contributions to your library, institution and/or community.  MAR will be collecting these stories and highlighting them on our website throughout October.

Anyone submitting a story before Oct. 31st will be entered into a random drawing to receive an award to cover registration and airfare to MLA 2014.  Multiple entries may be received from the same library, but only ONE entry per person. Send all stories and photos to nnlmmar@pitt.edu.

Be sure to check out MLA’s promotional items and resources to market library services and value at:
