MAHSLIN Annual Meeting
May 1, 2015
Mass. Medical Society, Waltham, MA
9:00 – 2:30
Meaghan Muir and her committee continue to plan for the meeting and have put together a great program which includes speakers of interest to all librarians so we hope you will consider joining us.
The program, “What Are the New Basics?”, will feature Jean Shipman, Director of the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library and Varang Parikh, Senior Process Improvement Specialist with the Center for Innovation and Transformational Change at UMass Memorial Healthcare. Both are experts in LEAN management techniques and will talk about LEAN training and how LEAN has been implemented in a library setting. Our “Pull Up a Chair” panel of librarians will focus on what they feel are the “New Basics”. What are the skills librarians need to thrive in this ever-changing landscape?
Make sure to mark your calendars for what we know will be a great meeting. More information including the registration form is available on the MAHSLIN website. We are happy that we have been able to keep the meeting fee the same over the past few years (it includes breakfast and lunch) so take advantage of the “early bird” rate now. ARIHSL members pay the same as MAHSLIN members!
