HSLI conference set for October 13-14

The 2011 Health Science Librarians of Illinois (HSLI) Annual Conference will be held in Utica, IL at the Starved Rock State Park on Thursday, October 13 and Friday, October 14.   Anyone interested in librarianship and learning is welcome to attend.  See the HSLI conference Web site for more information.

The keynote speaker will be Michelynn McKnight, Ph.D., AHIP, a former hospital librarian in Norman, OK, for more than two decades. For ten years she taught an MLA CE course entitled “Proving Your Worth: Convincing Non-Librarian Decision Makers of the Value of Your Essential Services.”  After she left the hospital, she expanded the topics of that course into what became the book, The Agile Librarian’s Guide to Thriving in Any Institution (Libraries Unlimited, 2010).
