President’s Message

MW/MLA 2016 Chair Chris Childs at Apostle Islands, WI

Apostle Islands, WI

Hello Everyone,

According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, summer is officially over at 10:21 am Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) on September 22.  If you are like me, this is very difficult to believe and I have no idea where the summertime went.  Fall will soon be marked with students returning to school, cooler weather, and the changing of the leaves.

In preparation for fall, be sure to visit the 2016 Annual Conference website for information on the upcoming joint meeting of the Midwest and Midcontinental Chapters in Des Moines Iowa in October.  Everything that you need to check off your own to do list before the conference starts can be done on this website.  Haven’t registered yet?  You still have plenty of time to make the early bird deadline of Sept. 12.  Worried about not getting a hotel?  In addition to the conference hotel, a list of seven other hotels are provided for you.  Interested in planning out your time at the conference?  The website has information on the program schedule, CE classes, keynote address and panel discussion (paper/poster information will be added later).  Wondering where to eat or what your options are for things to do while you are in Des Moines?  Check out the interactive maps and listings for restaurants, bars, cultural/historical options, local entertainment, shopping and outdoor activities.

So, enjoy the last days of summer don’t forget to check out the conference website at http://midwestmla.org/conference2016/wordpress/ or click on the link found on the homepage of the Chapter’s website at http://midwestmla.org/.

I look forward to seeing you in October in Des Moines.

Submitted by Amy Blevins, Publicity/Promotion Chair, Merge & Converge

Can you believe that it’s almost time for Merge & Converge: Sixteen in ’16? Don’t forget that early registration is ending on September 12! Early registration for the full conference is only $275 for members and $325 for non-members. You can register later, of course, but it’ll cost you an extra $50 (if I were you, I’d save my money for the Midwest Fundraising event also covered in this newsletter).

Speaking of planning ahead – hotel rooms are going quickly, so you might want to go ahead and book your room at the group rate for Medical Library Association Midwest Midcontinental Chapters Annual Meeting  as soon as possible.  If you wish to register by phone, call 1-800-228-9290 — be sure to mention “Medical Library Association Midwest Midcontinental Chapters Annual Meeting.”

The conference will be held at the Des Moines Marriott, 700 Grand Avenue, Des Moines, Iowa. A block of rooms has been reserved for meeting attendees at the rate of $144 per night, single or double. The last day to book at this rate is September 30, 2016. Wireless high-speed internet will be available in guest rooms for $1/night. Remember that meeting our commitment for the room block is what allows us to have meeting rooms at no cost.

Continuing Education at Merge & Converge: Sixteen in ‘16

Submitted by Amy Blevins, Publicity/Promotion Chair, Merge & Converge

One of the great things about attending a chapter meeting is the ability to take CE classes at lower prices than what you typically see at the big national meetings.  This year, all CE classes will be taking place on Saturday, October 22. Most of the classes are 4 hours in length, so you can enjoy a morning or afternoon off or you can sign up for two classes and spend your Saturday basking in learning opportunities. Classes cover a wide variety of topics including research projects, data visualization, predatory publishing, building partnerships with stakeholders, turning your data into a financial advocate for your library, and innovative instruction. Class descriptions are provided below.

Lorie Kloda, MLIS, PhD Associate University Librarian for Planning and Community Relations at Concordia University in Montreal will be teaching Research by Design: Proposing, Planning, and Carrying Out a Research Project for the Practicing Librarian from 8am – noon for 4 contact hours. This workshop will introduce participants to the steps in designing a research project: articulating the problem, formulating a research objective, reviewing the literature, designing the methods, and outlining the work plan and resources required. Using examples from health sciences librarianship, participants will explore different types of research projects accomplished by hospital and academic librarians as inspiration. Workshop participants will learn practical strategies and tips for incorporating research into daily routines useful for those without extensive education or experience in research methods. Each participant will leave the workshop with an outline of steps for a research project.

Tony Nguyen, MLS, NN/LM SE/A, University of Maryland, Medical Library is teaching Cool Creative Communications: Dazzling Data Visualization from 8am – noon for 4 contact hours. Taking this class will enable participants to: 1) Increase their knowledge of using visual representations of data and various data visualization tools; 2) Design a visualization using a data set with a selected tool and 3) Discuss visualizations created by peers to enhance understanding of the data presented.

Catherine Arnott Smith, AMLS, MA, MS, PhD, Associate Professor, University of Wisconsin-Madison, School of Library & Information Studies is teaching Beyond the List: Unpacking the Predatory Publisher from 8am – noon for 4 contact hours. The overall goal of this class is to enable learners to think in a deep way about how librarians can evaluate the published biomedical literature they find and make decisions about its quality. I do this by focusing on a real-life situation: the “predatory publisher” scenario. Both practicing librarians and their patrons are affected by the predatory phenomenon in important ways, and I hope to equip librarians to deal with the phenomenon to empower themselves as information professionals and authors alike.

Gwen Wilson, MLS, AHIP, Washburn University, Mabee Library, Topeka, KS and Kristen DeSanto, MSLS, MS, RD, AHIP, University of Colorado, Anschutz Medical Campus Library, Aurora CO are co-teaching Building Partnerships with Faculty, Clinicians and Other Stakeholders from 1pm – 5pm for 4 contact hours. Interested in strategies on building partnerships that lead to collaborative projects? This class will discuss barriers to building partnerships and detailed plans to help overcome these obstacles. Learn some strategies that will help open opportunities for collaborative projects in both the academic and hospital settings. After four hours in a hands-on workshop you will walk away with an action plan that fits you.

Betsy Kelly, MLS, MBANN/NL MCR and Barb Jones, MLS, Missouri State Coordinator and Coordinator for Library Engagement projects within the MidContinental Region will be teaching Financial Advocacy: Turning Your Data into Ammunition! from 1pm – 4pm for 3 contact hours. Statistics, data, reporting, oh my! Is your data alive and selling your value? Or, is it inanimate – stuck on paper, filed in a folder that is opened once a year to add another page and get a little fatter? Attend this Financial Advocacy class to learn how your data can become a living, breathing, contributing member of your library. This class will talk about what you can do with data and what it takes to make it sing for you. We’ll talk about kinds of data, different ways to view and analyze them as well as how to convert those numbers to money saved for your institution. We’ll determine the ROI of your services and of creating and teaching a class. We’ll finish up with a look at different ways to put your data to work telling your story in compelling ways.

Amy Blevins, MALS, Indiana University Ruth Lilly Medical Library and Xiaomei Gu, MSLS, University of Iowa Hardin Library for the Health Sciences will be teaching Innovative Instruction from 1pm – 5pm for 4 contact hours. This class will show a variety of active learning strategies to enhance instruction delivered face to face, online, or in a blended setting. Topics covered will include learning theory, instructional design, audience response systems, screencasting, and other technologies. The instructors will engage participants in discussions about their experiences with creating engaging instructional sessions while also modeling techniques they have used in their own classes.

Merge & Converge GMR Tech Forum: Partnering with Technology Champions

Submitted by Amy Blevins, Publicity/Promotion Chair, Merge & Converge

This year, the GMR is sponsoring a Tech Trends Panel on Monday October 24 from 3:30-5:00pm. This event will feature panelists who will be sharing their IT collaboration success stories as either a “technology therapy” for those of us struggling with new technology initiatives in our institutions or an inspiration to those of us looking for new and exciting ventures.

In addition to hearing from our colleagues about their exciting adventures in tech collaborations, we will be holding a drawing for a fabulous prize immediately after the technology forum. This is truly a “don’t want to miss” event.

From the GMR

Submitted by Jacqueline Leskovec, Network Librarian, National Network of Libraries of Medicine Greater Midwest Region

As you probably know by now, the office of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM) Greater Midwest Region (GMR) moved to the Hardin Library for the Health Sciences on May 1, 2016. The GMR staff has been selected (at least we hope so by the release of this issue of MIDLINE!) and has been hard at work. The physical space has been located and accessorized with the basic office accoutrements such as workstations, data jacks, phones, and, most importantly, a door. Although it’s taken us a bit of time, we are up and running as your RML and looking forward to working with you!

We are pleased to announce funding opportunities for our Network Members and potential members to support the mission of NN/LM. At the time of this writing, three awards have received the nod from our National Network Coordinating Office (NNCO) in Bethesda, and by the time of publication, we hope to have announced a few more.

The Express Outreach Award, Professional Development Award, and Technology Improvement Award are the first to be available. For information about these awards, please see the links from the GMR funding page: https://nnlm.gov/gmr/funding. Applications received by September 12, 2016, will receive the fullest consideration. We realize that this is a short turn-around time for application and execution with the period of performance for these awards ending on April 30, 2017. However, recipients may request a no-cost extension to complete activities after the ending date, and the GMR staff will be happy to work with you to help plan your approach and timeline. To see examples of previously funded projects in the GMR and our sister regions, please see https://nnlm.gov/gmr/funding/past-funding.

Although not finalized, anticipated award opportunities include outreach to Native Americans and Community Outreach. Also, the GMR is hoping to provide an opportunity for public librarians and state library groups to work together with emergency responders and health departments to join forces in emergency preparedness and response.

If you have any questions, please contact the GMR office via email at gmr-lib@uiowa.edu. Or you may also contact us at our recently established phone line at (319) 353 – 4479.

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 the Spring 2016 issue of MIDLINE, I expounded upon the names of our State Representatives  and of our State Presidents—and have learned (with great and humble appreciation to Marcia Francis of North Dakota) that I need to correct and update North Dakota’s State President’s name—welcome to Dawn Hackman as North Dakota’s 2016 President—and then to Merete Christianson as North Dakota’s President-Elect!  Marcia Francis remains as North Dakota’s State Representative.

On to my Ramblings—which quite likely might seem a bit incoherent—I am sure many of you—even most of you—have moved your library/ies once or more in your career—or closed and re-opened, or renovated—in any case, a change of this magnitude, whether the library is smallish or huge, is an emotional and humbling experience which can affect you and your work and life for months, even years…especially if it has happened more than once in your career.

You can read all the helpful articles which are published about organizing a move—or a closure or a renovation—but unless I am living under a rock (or a toppled bookcase), when the time actually approaches to begin dismantling –no matter how well you plan, does your library suddenly seem to grown beyond the appointed storage or  allotted movable shelves (our corporate moving company here in Northern Indiana calls those shelves ‘Gondolas” –they are quite efficient and they roll smoothly (usually), but they resemble NOTHING of the romantic image of those softly gliding water vessels in Venice, Italy)?

Do you find yourself overcome with emotion and reminiscence as you load your books and journals and remember wistfully over the years of physicians and nursing and allied health staffs and students who frequent (or –way in the past– frequented) your library and helped to plan your collections and journals and perused them and asked for your assistance?

As you rummage through your files to pack your desks—even if you have kept them quite up to date and well-organized—do you remember the classes and conferences, the meetings and workshops, the budget plans, the defenses of your collections and budget dollars and databases—and wonder to  where the years and semesters flew…?

The suddenly that cozy place is simply empty walls and floor space and hallowed shelves devoid of color and intrigue—the life and intellectual energy and challenge gone out it…and regardless of whether this library is moving to a new location, being down-sized (or enlarged) or renovated—like your beloved pet, or a dear friend or beloved one who has died—the ache and wound in your heart and mind never quite heal—this place has been your life (even if you have multiple libraries still to manage).

I am sure folks in every profession feel the same way about vacating or moving or changing an office, a hospital unit or building—any place that is vacated after many years—but a LIBRARY—that is different, that is special and exclusive— and part of the fabric of one’s heart and soul.

As your Representative-at-Large, I enjoy writing to our State Representatives and Presidents and encouraging them to share among us all 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.
