The Medical Library Association (MLA) expresses deep sorrow, compassion, anger, and words of hope in response to the death of George Floyd and many other victims of police brutality. We share the horror and outrage being expressed throughout our nation.
In light of national conversations around Black Lives Matter, systemic racism, police violence, and health disparities in the COVID-19 pandemic, the JMLA team believes affirms JMLA’s commitment to promoting diversity and equity in health sciences librarianship and information science.
MLA members have started a curated list of COVID-19 resources for medical librarians and other health information professionals. The site will be updated as frequently as possible and has been created from crowd-sourced suggestions.
The Technology in Education Caucus is pleased to announce the following changes, updates, and the recruiting timeline for the My Favorite Tool session during MLA ’20. In 2019, the contestant slots filled up in less than 24 hours!
MLA congratulates the 2019 recipients of the Annual Meeting Travel Grant. Financial support for 2019 travel grants includes ten grants supported from the MLA annual budget and ten grants generously sponsored by McGraw-Hill. All recipients will be honored during MLA ’19 in Chicago.
