Hello everyone! I am both a first-time attendee and first-time guest blogger. Since this is my first time attending the MLA annual meeting, I decided to start my day bright and early by attending the MLA'17 New Members and First-Time Attendees Program and Breakfast.
I had a great time during the Welcome Reception last night, meeting other librarians and chatting with vendors (and collecting pens!). I spent some time at the Medscape table, which was a resource I was vaguely familiar with but had never actually explored.
Hello! I'm excited to be a guest blogger for MLA 17, and really excited to get to Seattle. This will be my second MLA, and I feel like I have a much better handle on sessions I want to attend than I did for my first MLA.
A little about me: I'm the librarian for the College of Nursing at Michigan St
