Health Information Outreach Award 78

The number of health science librarians in Georgia has slowly decreased over the past decade which has been reflected in the membership of both the Georgia Health Sciences Library Association (GHSLA) and the Atlanta Health Science Librarians Consortium (AHSLC). In 2015 GaIN, Georgia Interactive Network, dissolved and left many hospital libraries without access to resources and networking opportunities with other librarians in the state. This Health Information Outreach Award would allow attendees at the GHSLA/AHSLC Annual meeting to benefit from the instruction from two MLA accredited courses, ?Cool Creative Communications: Dazzling Data Visualization? and ?Building partnerships with faculty, clinicians, and other stakeholders.? It will also give attendees an opportunity to learn and network with librarians from a variety of institutions throughout the state of Georgia and how we can collaborate as an extension of NN/LM, GHSLA, AHSLC, and our individual institutions.
