We Hope to See You at MLA ’17 in Seattle

MLA17_LOGO_300X300.jpgThere is still time to register for MLA ’17. Attend the annual meeting in Seattle and be inspired by the outstanding featured speakers including Julie Angus, Julia F. Sollenberger, AHIP, FMLA, Patty Brennan, and Hope Jahren. Among the new sessions this year, be sure to attend the special open forum, “Activism in a Time of Turbulence,” to be held Sunday, May 28. Librarians have a long history of advocating for openness, transparency, and access to high-quality research. Join us as we discuss how MLA as an organization and you as members can affect government decision making in the area of health information.

MLA offers more than twenty continuing education courses on Friday and Saturday before MLA ’17 beings. Topic areas include expert searching, research design, bibliometrics, marketing, consumer health, systematic reviews, evidence-based medicine and evidence-based practice, and a symposium on the role of librarians in the reproducibility of research. Sessions fill up quickly so register now!

There are so many opportunities to network as well. From Dinner Dine Arounds to the International Visitors Reception to the Library School Reunion, you can connect with old friends, and it is never too late to make a new friend along the way. Don’t miss this opportunity to engage with your colleagues.

Discover Seattle! Take in the sights and sounds of the city. Whether you are strolling through the streets, visiting Pike Place Market, or trying the local cuisine, you will find Seattle has much to offer. Consider extending your trip, an especially nice way to maximize your experience.

With flexible registration options and our collegial Welcome Reception (included in the respective registration fee), MLA ’17 is an affordable and enjoyable way to advance your skills and knowledge, while earning essential continuing education credit.

Don’t miss out! Register now!
