Dear Lynn and MedLibbers -- We are doing the following for NMLM 2005 : 1) a drawing where we ask participants to guess how many books and AV (not counting journals) we have in the library 2) Winner gets a gift certificate to a local book store 3) Other Door prizes include road atlases, etc. All entrants can have a treat from the candy dish. 4) Book display of books enthusiastically recommended by our patrons (I have a 1/4 size sheet listing their name and department slipped into each book on display. We are also encouraging people to make more recommendations. This gives people a sense of ownership to the libraries--they really can make a contribution to the collections with just a suggestion! 5) Matching Game where participants match the recommended title to the recommender's name--some of them are surprising! This also shows the breadth of our collections--not just health and medical, but audiobooks (for fun!) and management titles as well. This will appear in the corporate wide Weekly newsletter. 6) Featuring/Introducing our new and improved Evidence-based Practice pyramid in the style of U of Washingiton's EBM Summary of Tools and the modified Hayes Pyramid. 7) Archival Photo albums where participants/visitors help us name the people in the pictures from local events happening here at the hospital in recent history. These are always a hit as people stroll down memory lane ... And it's a useful task as we get the pictures labeled for future viewers. 8) Bulletin Board with the MLA Poster and the Wisconsin Archives Week poster (Wisconsin Women). *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* Michele Matucheski, MLS, AHIP Librarian The Clark Family Health Science Library Mercy Medical Center - Affinity Health System 500 S.
