Annual Meeting

The Midwest Chapter conducts an Annual Meeting each fall. The meeting addresses current issues relevant to health science librarians through a variety of formats -- panel presentations, formal papers, and informal discussion groups. In addition, each meeting offers continuing education courses and vendor exhibits.

An Annual Meeting Guide has been prepared by the board to guide meeting planners in their work of organizing the meetings.
