Along with my fellow #medlibs (Krafty, eagledawg, Megan, Kimberley, and others. If you need a list of #medlibs check out the MLA conference website or the list fellow medlibs created previously. Please add your name if you are not on the list!), I am heading to MLA in Boston in a few days. As many have said, it is always a dash to the finish line. I think the new job change and moving may have something to do with the added race to the finish line.
I am still finalizing my schedule (it’s on the conference scheduler page) but have the gist of it ready to go. One of the items I am still working on, and there will be a post up about it soon, is the veg*n outing, which is a time when a group of fellow #medlibs who are vegetarian, vegan, or just like good food head out to try some of the local cuisine. We held the first one every last year and it was some awesome food. So look for the post soon.
Medical Informatics Section:
If you are a member please attend the MIS business meeting for your chance to win an iPad mini. You must be present and a member of MIS to win. The meeting is Monday May 6, 2013 4:30pm – 6:00pm at Hynes Convention Center – Room 203
Even if you are not a member of MIS (and why not? Our section covers great topics, plays zombie games, and what not) then you should still attend the TechTrends on Tuesday at 6pm at Hynes Convention Center – Room 312. Several medical librarians will discuss the latest in tech trends. I will actually be one of this years panelist talking about integrating EBM into the EMR.
