Congratulations to Erin Latta, a recipient of the 2020 Outstanding Health Sciences Library Paraprofessional Award
The Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the Medical Library Association is very happy to announce that the inaugural winner of the MAC Outstanding Health Sciences Library Paraprofessional Award is Erin Latta.
In 2018, Erin launched a DOCLINE webinar series in collaboration with NLM’s DOCLINE development team with close to 900 attendees at the first offering, and continues to have high participation when offered. As a paraprofessional running a one-person office, Erin has devoted significant time supporting libraries and assisting them throughout the transition to the DOCLINE system and continuing to communicate with NLM user requests including decreasing the number of journals required to participate, changes to the routing system, and new search filters. Erin has done a tremendous job as a paraprofessional supporting the implementation of DOCLINE 6.0 throughout the U.S. while finishing her BA and MLIS at the University of Maryland, College Park over the past few years.
