Professional Development: Quint Chapter Meeting 2014, Whitmore

Attend 2014 Quint MLA Chapter Meeting in Denver, CO. Awardee statement: As a solo librarian, I don?t get too many opportunities to network with other medical librarians from the region. One of those few opportunities is the annual PNC/MLA meetings. With money being tight due to attending graduate school, I thought the meeting this year would be beyond my ability to attend. With this scholarship though, I could attend very easily. It allows me interact with other professional librarians and attend CEs that I wouldn?t get to attend otherwise. The interaction and the CEs in return help me to decide how to best run my medical library and help to keep me update on new ideas and innovations is library management. In addition, this one of the few venues where I can interact with vendors and see what is up and coming for the library community that will ultimately enhance the service I provide.
