Koffee Klatch with Jean and Claire

Class Details

Calling all health sciences librarians in hospital and academia! Join Jean Shipman, Director, and Claire Hamasu, Associate Director, of the NN/LM MidContinental Region. Pretend we’re all meeting over coffee or tea ready to solve the problems of the library world. They’ll be thinking out loud as they mull over questions that are weighing on their minds. Maybe you’ve been mulling over these same questions? They hope you’ll join in the conversation. Some of the topics that are on their list to address:

* New skills to add to your value.
* What does it mean when libraries are no longer collection centric? Is there a continuum in moving from collection to focusing primarily on teaching, expert searching, patient consults, research support etc. in the new information environment?
* How many hats do you wear? How does that impact your librarian role?
* What new roles should we take on? What traditional roles should we give up?
* Vision for the library.
