Chapter News: Visit Us in Pure Michigan for Pure Information 2017!

Edited by Jennifer K. Lloyd, AHIP

The planning committee for the Joint Meeting of the Midwest Chapter/MLA and Michigan Health Sciences Libraries Association (MHSLA) is excited to welcome you to our state for our conference on October 13–16, 2017!

Located on the banks of the picturesque Huron River in Ypsilanti (IP-SILL-ANN-TEE or Ypsi for short!), the Ann Arbor Marriott Ypsilanti at Eagle Crest will be your home for four days of learning, networking, and taking in the sights and sounds of fall in Michigan.

Here are just a few things to look forward to at this year’s conference:

  • Friday, October 13: Midwest Board Meeting and a “spontaneous” Happy Hour at 5:00 p.m. in the hotel bar for those arriving on Friday
  • Saturday, October 14: A fascinating line-up of morning and afternoon continuing education courses and, finally, an opening reception to finish out the day
  • Sunday, October 15: Keynote address, contributed papers, exhibits, and a special social event
  • Monday, October 16: Exhibits, posters, and business meetings

This year’s keynote address features Curt Guyette, an investigative reporter for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Michigan. Guyette has been recognized with numerous awards for his groundbreaking coverage of the toxic contamination of the Flint water supply, a public health disaster that exposed the city of 100,000 people to lead poisoning for almost 2 years despite government officials insisting the water was safe. In 2016, he was named Michigan Journalist of the Year by the Michigan Press Association and awarded the Hillman Prize. His work has been recognized nationally on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show, the radio program On the Media from WNYC, and the Columbia Journalism Review, and internationally by The Guardian newspaper.

Preliminary program and registration information will be available soon on the conference website. For the latest updates, follow us on Twitter @MHSLANews and with #MidwestMHSLA17.
