MLA ’19 Invitation
Make tracks to Chicago from May 3–8, 2019! The 2019 MLA National Program Committee and the 2019 Local Assistance Committee are mapping out an exciting and motivating meeting with many stops and destinations.
The theme of the meeting, “Elevate,” is derived from Chicago’s iconic elevated (the “L” or “El”) transit system. The “L” is one of the oldest, most extensive rapid transit systems in the country and was voted one of the seven wonders of Chicago. We hope that, like the “L,” MLA ’19 will elevate the profession and deliver you to the destination you seek, be it learning, service, partnership, fun, or friendship.
Whether you get to Chicago on an airplane, on a sailboat, or by train or bus; whether you take the Pink Line, the Blue Line, or Brown Line, just get here. We look forward to transporting you just a little further with our inspiring program.
Reenergize yourself and present your ideas, while deepening your understanding of new innovations and opportunities in health sciences librarianship. There is no limit to what you can share and learn, in topic areas like:
- Information Services
- Information Management
- Instruction & Instructional Design
- Leadership & Management
- Evidence-Based Practice & Research
- Health Information Professionalism
- latest trends in technology
- best practices in service
- ways to enhance intellectual growth
- new, innovative resources for efficiency and cost savings
MLA ’19 will be a 4-and-1/2 day interdisciplinary educational experience, with a 3-day commercial exhibition that attracts over 100 exhibitors from around the world.
We look forward to seeing you in Chicago!
