Introducing Nikki Dettmar, Acting Education and Assessment Coordinator

Friday, May 9th, 2008

Hello to all, and for many in our region this is a “It’s great to see you again!” introduction. My name is Nikki Dettmar and as of May 1st I am the Acting Education & Assessment Coordinator here in the Pacific Northwest Region. My job duties include developing educational activities in web-based learning formats, as well as coordinating the assessment and evaluation of our regional network and outreach programs with my RML colleagues.


ScanGrants and Librarians

Tuesday, May 6th, 2008

We thought you would enjoy reading about an innovative project undertaken by Network member Hope Leman and her colleagues at Samaritan Health Services in Corvallis, Oregon. ScanGrants is truly an impressive resource. Congratulations, Hope, on a job well done!
