MLA’12: Medical Library Association Annual Meeting and Exhibit 2012 “Growing Opportunities Changing Our Game”
May 18-23, 2012, Seattle, WA
You are invited to submit abstracts now for the MLA’12 session “Consumer Health Outreach: Taking the Consumer Health Library Out of the Library.”
Consumer health libraries offer a wealth of information in health care facilities, but marketing beyond the walls of the library is increasingly important to bring reliable, relevant, and up-to-date health care information to members of surrounding communities. This outreach not only serves as a resource appreciated by consumers and librarians in the community, but also serves as a marketing tool for your health care organization.
Join our panel of consumer health librarians who have reached beyond their physical walls to the community at large
through many innovative and creative approaches.
This session is sponsored by the Consumer and Patient Heath Information Section; Federal Librarians Section; Outreach SIG; Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered Health Science Librarians SIG; Relevant Issues Section; African American Medical Librarians Alliance SIG. Hospital, academic, public, and special librarians are encouraged to submit proposals.

Proposal Submission Deadline: Wednesday, November 2, 2011
