Register for CE courses for the 2015 MW/MLA Conference!

Have you ever wondered what it takes to “think like a doctor” … without getting a headache?

Do you lose sleep over the thought of waking up to discover you’ve been “Embedded” in a medical department with no exit in sight … unless you choose a red or blue pill?

Do you question your ability to conduct systematic reviews, search PubMed like an expert, or keep up with emerging technologies for librarians … while staffing a reference desk, teaching info lit, or clearing paper jams from the copiers for patrons?

The cure for these professional development concerns can be found at the 2015 Midwest MLA Meeting in Louisville, Kentucky, October 2 – 6. Now is the time to take advantage of our excellent selection of Continuing Education Courses taught by experts recruited from across the region and as far away as Texas. Choose one or more courses to become the master of your domain and a paragon of librarianship in a matter of a few hours. We guarantee you will sleep better and wake up ready to meet the challenges we face in our constantly changing library world. We look forward to seeing you in the Village of Louis in October!

Are you interested in serving on a chapter committee? 

If so, please click on one of the links listed below to our Midwest/MLA Application for Committee Service.  This is a new survey that will go out every year.  We realize that several of you have already included your interest in serving on a committee on your online profile, but we cannot tell when a profile was last updated.  While you could update your profile, it would probably be easier to just fill out this survey.  It will only take a few minutes and you have until the end of the day on 8/26.  A link to the Standing Committee Charges webpage from the chapter’s website is provided in the survey.

Follow this link to the Survey:

North Dakota Heritage Center and State Museum

What a delight to have a reception in North Dakota’s Heritage Center and State Museum!  From the beautiful architecture of the new galleries to the fascinating exhibits presented inside, the center makes for a wonderfully educational introduction to the state’s history.

And some of that history is ancient!  I think everyone enjoyed the dinosaurs and how engagingly they were displayed.  Should I ever get a cat I am naming him or her after Dinictis (transl. Terrible Stab) the inhabitant of North Dakota from approximately 30 million years ago (what a fantastic name!).

I was also delighted that the gift shop stayed open late for our event because I was able to pick up some North Dakotan chippers that I had heard so much about since I arrived.  I brought them home to share to immense success.  A truly delightful evening in a fantastic setting!
