Shifting Skills: MLA webcast locations in the Pacific Northwest Region

Join your colleagues on Wednesday, April 20th from 11am-12:30pm (Pacific time) for the Medical Library Association (MLA) webcast Shifting Skills to Navigate the Changing Horizon: Finding Our Way in New Biomedical Research and Health Care Environments.  The goal of this webcast is to introduce information professionals to some of the emerging trends in biomedical research and health care environments that present new opportunities for partnership, collaboration, and support. Translational science, e-science, and electronic health records are characterized by large amounts of information and data. These offer new and expanded roles for information professionals in data management, curation, sharing and integration; new models for scholarly publication; new ways to collaborate with Clinical and Translational Science Award centers and their constituents; and new opportunities to educate health and information technology professionals in the meaningful use of health information via electronic health record systems.

The Pacific Northwest Region (PNR) will host the webcast at the University of Washington Health Sciences Library, Lab A.  If you will join us here in Seattle for the webcast at UW please register at
