Celebrate the month in October and year-round with  this year's poster and camera-ready art featuring MLA's recently revised Competencies for Lifelong Learning and Professional Success. The 2017 poster highlights the fact that health information professionals are the experts in areas such as information management and services, evidence-based practice, and instructional design. Display this year's poster and use the accompanying images to help promote yourself as the authority in your institution in the competency areas you excel in and to help demonstrate the value of your library.
