Exhibit Award: 2004 Annual Michigan Library Association Conference
Exhibit Award: William Beaumont Hospital Library Information Services, for the Michigan Health Science Library Association (MHSLA) plans on exhibiting at the Michigan Library Association conference Focusing on the Big Picture: Realizing Our Shared Vision in Traverse City, MI. MHSLA?s goal at this conference is to aid our colleagues in accessing and assessing quality consumer health information. We believe that helping our colleagues to help their patrons will result in increased health literacy within the State of Michigan. Because the National Library of Medicine is the premier producer of free quality health information via the Internet, it is obvious that many attendees of the MLA Annual Conference would benefit from exposure to PubMed, MedlinePlus, ClinicalTrials.gov and other NLM services. The health sciences librarians of MHSLA are well suited to represent the GMR at this conference and welcome this opportunity to participate in the promotion of consumer health knowledge and health literacy through information sharing.
