Work-Life Balance Focus of MLA Spring Webcast
With the pressures facing everyone these days including the economy, workplace issues, and family obligations, it's harder to find a balance between work and homelife. The Medical Library Association (MLA) will focus on this topic in its spring 2009 webcast, "Finding Work-Life Balance: Strategies for You and Your Institution." The webcast will take place on Wednesday, March 25, 2009 from 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m., central time.
The goals of the webcast are to identify ways to enhance the balance between work and home life; provide an overview of the institutional, professional, and personal benefits of encouraging balance; and outline considerations for implementing successful changes.
Those interested can register as individuals and view the program from their own computers or at a participating site. Institutions can register as a participating site and provide an opportunity for a number of health sciences librarians to view the program. Individual participants viewing on their own can earn 2 MLA continuing education (CE) hours, and those viewing at a participating site can earn up to 3.5 MLA CE hours. In addition, institutions that are part of the same organization can register together and receive a volume discount through the multiple-site registration option. Depending on participants' registration, access to on-demand viewing of the webcast for up to 30 days following the live program and the option to purchase the webcast video or DVD at a special rate are included. The early bird deadline for registering is Friday, March 13, 2009.
