President’s Message

Submitted by Debra Werner, Midwest Chapter/MLA President 2017 

Happy late spring Midwest Chapter members!  I wouldn’t be a Midwesterner if I didn’t comment on the weather, and even though we are still in the final days of spring, it feels like full-on summer has arrived.

Back in the cold, rainy days of early spring, your Chapter Board held a long, virtual meeting to discuss finances, fundraising, annual meetings, awards, communication, and so much more.  I was happy to announce at that meeting the latest appointed officer, Megan Keller-Young, Instructor & Special Collections Librarian at the University of Illinois at Chicago, as our new Archivist.  Welcome Megan!

Around the same time of the virtual Board meeting, on yet another cold and rainy day, our Chapter’s Annual Report was submitted to MLA Headquarters.  Here are some of the highlights:

Executive Summary:

The focus of the Midwest Chapter in 2016/2017 is to strengthen Midwest Chapter’s finances after having lost considerable savings to an unscrupulous vendor.   The Chapter implemented many cost-cutting measures and initiated fundraising activities.  These efforts, coupled with a highly successful 2016 Annual Meeting partnership with the Midcontinental Chapter, have stabilized the situation and the Chapter is beginning to restoring its financial health.  The Chapter is migrating to a new, more attractive website, scheduled to be completed this fall.  Finally, the Midwest Chapter is the proud recipient of the Majors/MLA Chapter Project of the Year Award for its Resume/Interview Practice Program.


  1. Strengthen Midwest Chapter’s finances.
  2. Migrate to new website to improve online experience of Chapter members by organizing content in intuitive fashion, removing content that is no longer relevant, etc.
  3. Review the Chapter’s annual meetings and recommend changes to their planning and execution in order to increase year-to-year continuity and planning effectiveness.

Your Chapter Board and Committees are hard at work accomplishing these goals!  You will hear more about these goals in the near future.  As always, if you have ideas or input that you’d like to provide, please contact me.  You can read the full Annual Report at: http://midwestmla.org/board/agendas-reports/MidwestChapter_Annual_Report_2017.docx.

Finally, it was great to see so many Midwest Chapter members at MLA’17 in Seattle where the weather was picture perfect.  I hope to see even more of you at the Midwest Chapter Annual Meeting, October 13 – 16 in Ypsilanti, Michigan!  The meeting, held jointly with the Michigan Health Sciences Libraries Association (MHSLA) is at the lovely Ann Arbor Marriott Ypsilanti at Eagle Crest.  Read more about the meeting and register at: http://midwestmla.org/conference2017/.

Make an Impact! The Annual Meeting Special Committee Needs YOU!

Submitted by Clare Leibfarth and Bette Sydelko, Co-Chairs, Annual Meetings Special Committee 

But Wait! What is the Annual Meetings Special Committee?

Planning our chapter’s annual meetings involves many chapter members and is a lot of hard work! At any one time, the chapter has two (sometimes three!) meetings in the various stages of planning. The current meeting planning policies and procedures, including the nine state meeting location rotation, have been essentially unchanged for over 25 years. See the chapter website Meetings page for more information: http://midwestmla.org/meetings/.

After 25 years, it is a good time to take a detailed look at the planning of our meetings. What are we doing well? What can we do better? How can we make the meetings even more successful? Can the process be made more efficient and effective?

The Midwest Chapter Executive Board approved a recommendation by the Annual Meetings Committee to appoint a task force to examine these issues, the Annual Meetings Special Committee. Here is our Official Committee Charge as approved by the Midwest Chapter Executive Board and posted on the Midwest Chapter website:

Charge of the Annual Meetings Special Committee 2016-2017

Charge of the Annual Meetings Special Committee 2016-2017


Why does the Annual Meetings Special Committee need ME?

Over the next four months, we need motivated chapter members to join us in the research phase of the committee’s work, gathering information to help us recommend ways to improve the planning of our annual meetings. This will entail reading and analyzing the final reports of the meeting planning committees and the meeting evaluation surveys from the last several chapter conferences. Using qualitative research methodology, you will participate in the coding and thematic analysis of these resources. These reports and surveys contain a wealth of ideas for making our meetings better than ever. Your analysis will help us to gather those ideas together and generate concrete suggestions for improvement.

YOU can make a lasting impact on the Midwest Chapter! Join us on the Annual Meetings Special Committee.

Chapter Sharing Roundtable “Free Lunch” Winner at MLA ’17

Submitted by JJ Pionke, Applied Health Sciences Librarian at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 

Lunch Roundtable: Diversity is the Whole Package

I wasn’t sure what to expect going into the luncheon but I knew that I wanted to connect to others who were either doing diversity work or at least interested in diversity.  My research revolves around disability and the closest areas that I have found for discussion of disability is under the diversity umbrella. It has been hard for me to find other MLA folk who are interested in disability or diversity work so I saw the luncheon as a prime opportunity to meet others with my same interest and passion.

The topic of diversity was somewhat popular as we were at two tables.  I spotted someone I knew at one of the tables so I made a beeline for them.  Our table was made up of a lovely mix of professionals with a wide variety of interests in diversity.  Conversation was jovial and warm in the kind of way when like-minded individuals come together for a rousing discussion of a much loved topic.

Discussion ranged all over the place including talking about the use of cultural competencies, microaggression training, the integration of diversity into our everyday lives (work and otherwise), diversity as a fad/interest of the month by administrations, recruitment and how to retain diverse individuals, positive things that are going on at our institutions, and we shared out resources.  I mentioned my disability LibGuides: http://guides.library.illinois.edu/alacwgdisabilitytoc, Project ENABLE which is a training program around disability out of Syracuse: https://projectenable.syr.edu/, and the Targeting Autism forum: https://targetingautismlibs.com/about/.

We also ended with a call to action.  One of the concerns we had about MLA was that there seems to be less diversity presentations/posters/discussions.  We decided to send letters to the MLA president pointing out this issue (some Special Interest Groups haven’t had a single panel in two years) and asking for a review of procedures to be more inclusive of all interests.

I would like to thank MW/MLA for the “Free Lunch” award.  As a still relatively new professional in the field, being able to meet with others and discuss the topic of diversity was invaluable. I came away invigorated by the discussion and fired up to talk about diversity with colleagues.  I also feel like I made new friends.

From the GMR – Librarians Supporting Health Equity: We Can Make a Difference

Submitted by Derek Johnson, Health Professionals Outreach Specialist, National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Greater Midwest Region, Hardin Library for the Health Sciences, Iowa City, IA 

In April, I had the opportunity to present at the Minnesota Public Health Association Conference. The theme of the conference was Moving Health Equity Forward. As I prepared for the conference, I began thinking about what health equity really means (the American Public Health Association defines health equity as everyone having the opportunity to attain their highest level of health) and wondering how does a health sciences librarian support the attainment of health equity?

As I pondered that second question I thought of two key audiences that the GMR (and other health sciences librarians) provide services to: health professionals and the general public. These two groups play key roles in the pursuit for health equity and both rely on librarians for assistance in finding and accessing health information. Knowing the audience of the conference would be public health practitioners, I decided to tailor the presentation for that audience.

My presentation that day was titled Advancing Health Equity through Evidence-Based Public Health. It introduced many of the attendees to the idea that the concepts of evidence-based medicine can be tailored to public health. The talk emphasized the role that information plays in conducting evidence-based public health and how important it is to find the best available evidence. And, just as health sciences librarians do with doctors, nurses, and other health professionals, here is a clear opportunity for support in teaching, searching, and outreach to those working to achieve health equity.

But, it’s not just public health professionals that need assistance in locating health information to support the goal of health equity. Consumers need it too. Without access to reliable health information consumers can act (or not act) based on faulty assumptions or misinformation. This is especially true for population groups that might be distrusting of health systems, who lack health literacy, or speak a foreign language. This leads to another opportunity for health sciences librarians to contribute to health equity.

From July 3 – July 24 I’ll be hosting an online Moodle course titled From Beyond our Borders: Providing Multilingual and Multicultural Health Information. I invite you to join me for this course to learn more about refugee health, cultural competence, and where to find health information resources to support both health professionals working with diverse populations and the consumers themselves as we all work to achieve health equity.

Ramblings from the Representative-at-Large

Submitted by Patty Lunsford, Representative-at-Large, Franciscan St. Elizabeth Health, Lafayette, Crawfordsville, and Rensselaer, Indiana

“The State Liaisons Committee shall serve as a conduit for communication between the chapter and state health sciences library associations, local library groups and library science educational programs. It shall serve as a mechanism for chapter officers and committees to distribute information and receive feedback at the state and local level.”

 In our ever-more-complicated and crowded world of data, technology, global interactions, business models, metrics, cost effectiveness, and competition, we frequently become buried and stressed with the critical nature of achieving and delivering excellence, working more effectively, and both justifying and saving costs (midst shrinking budgets).  We can also become overwhelmed with, and even feel  threatened by, models, acronyms, and what they all mean and how they impact our work and professions.

Most of us are familiar with the principle and practice of Lean Culture—which is the updated practice formerly identified as Lean Six Sigma—and many of us may already be familiar with the SQDC model—Safety-Quality-Delivery-Cost—a work model which actually is adapted from manufacturing (not healthcare or education), which emphasizes first and foremost the CUSTOMER (or patient, employee, physician, professor) and then how to provide, based upon observable and tangible metrics (rather than mere statistics) a culture of service excellence built upon Safety, Quality, Delivery, and Cost—in this order.

NOTE: Cost is last in line, even as we fret over shrinking budgets and cutting dollars and  doing more with less—when we prioritize our customer/patron/client focus, and strive to ensure his/her safety first, then create and actualize practices which deliver quality, followed  by delivery—the cost savings are manifested as a direct result of enacting the first three components of this model.

It would take chapters and books to fully define, understand, and learn how to apply the SQDC model—but as I recently have begun studying the model and concept in articles and charts taught to us in my Franciscan Health Lafayette hospitals by our Administration and Business Transformation team, I have become enthralled about how the SQDC Model can be applied to library and information science and how we perform our work and serve our patrons and carry out our missions of service and excellence.

How do we ensure the SAFETY of our patrons, which includes reducing error and injury, and  enhancing and improving workplace  and employee morale and our library environments? Is the information we provide for them truly applicable and excellent for their research, clinical, or teaching needs?

How do we provide QUALITY in our services and interactions—which also encompasses the methods we employ to  study and evaluate our processes, resources, and practices to maximize reliability and efficiency—and are we keeping ourselves updated to be current and excellent in our professional practices?

Safety and quality thus impact the DELIVERY of our services—whether they be research and reference, technical processing, acquisitions management, clinical instruction, and the impact our libraries have upon our patrons and our organizations.

Finally, the inter-relationships of safety, quality, and delivery impact the COST of our resources and servicesnot only to us as information specialists, but also to our patrons (clients, customers, folks who use, and should be using, our libraries). Often organizations place cost first—which prospectively leads to personnel cuts, reduction in force, depleted services and resources, which then create loss of morale and engagement and positivity among an organization’s employees—who truly are the most critical customers! How can we serve and enhance our clients if we, as the prime customers—employees, are fraught with stress and disillusionment over depleted budgets?  So we need to study those metrics and evaluate our services and resources, and ensure that we are either using them wisely and resourcefully—or change them and find a way to work with what we have and truly need.

Lean Culture and the SQDC Model are based upon process orientation rather than task orientation. The entire philosophy of Lean Culture, supported by the SQDC Model, enables us to be energized and inspired by looking introspectively at our entire profession and the ways in we deliver services, select and evaluate our resources, serve our patrons, interact with our colleagues, and –how we uphold one of the chief missions of our profession—to create and enhance an environment of lifelong learning and health literacy and to be active and reliable stewards of the instruments of learning and knowledge.

As your Representative-at-Large, one of my responsibilities and “joys of this work” is to communicate with our State Representatives and Presidents—and all of our members, actually– and to encourage all of us to share various questions and situations which arise –either as a presented question or issue or challenge…please—share with us all experiences of this kind—how you have planned, gotten the job done, what worked and what did not, and how you coped…and succeeded.
