Beyond the SEA: February 15, 2012 - The Changing Hospital Library Environment: New Roles for the Librarian

Presenter: Sybil Bullock, MLIS, EdS, has had a full career as a Federal Librarian in medical, scientific, and technical libraries/scientific information centers.  Upon early retirement, she chose a new career track:  Teaching at the University of Alabama School of Library & Information Studies (SLIS), Tuscaloosa, Alabama as well as establishing a Library Consultant Business.

The Healthcare environment continues to experience rapid change affecting hospitals and hospital libraries.  Some of the things happening are outside the control of the Librarian but have big impacts on the Library and the Library Staff.  Some libraries/librarians are disappearing; others are adapting to these outside changes.  If you are one of those affected by these changes, what can you do?  This Webinar will look at some of the options available to you and will offer advice on how to re-frame your thinking, leverage your information knowledge skills, update your professional  ID/Brand, and offer examples of what others are doing to succeed in this turbulent environment.

To hear this webconference, please go to our list of previously presented web conferences.
