Several weeks ago, Medlib-l was on fire with discussion about advocating for medical librarianship. I wanted to mention how some are already trying advocate outside of the library world. Katie Houk, Research & Instruction Librarian, Tufts University Hirsh Health Sciences Library wrote a nice post http://esciencecommunity.umassmed.edu/2014/03/05/ask-and-you-shall-recei ve-obtaining-presentation-session-at-a-life-sciences-conference/ Detailing how she was able to turn a meeting with a faculty member into getting approved as an invited speaker for the 2014 World Forum on In Vitro Biology and Cryobiology in Savannah, GA this June. Way to go Katie! =================================== Please consider the environment before printing this e-mail Cleveland Clinic is ranked as one of the top hospitals in America by U.S.News & World Report (2013).
