President’s Message

Submitted by Karen L. Hanus, Midwest Chapter/MLA President 2018

Hello, Midwest Chapter/MLA! I’m pleased to serve as the President of the Midwest Chapter of the Medical Library Association this year. I hope to make a lot of new connections with you as we collaborate in different ways. Please feel free to contact me at khanus@mcw.edu if you have any concerns or suggestions for our association!

I want to thank the planners of the 2017 Annual Meeting in Ypsilanti, MI. I always think of planning an annual meeting like a Thanksgiving dinner which takes days of planning and preparation usually by one or two people and it’s consumed in 30 minutes by a hungry crowd. Similarly, planning an annual meeting is a big job and takes months for a few days of programming. But, the preparation and planning on the part of a small number of dedicated people resulted in a wonderful experience for dozens of people at the event! So, thank you for your time and energy in planning our conference!

And speaking of Annual Meetings, I’d like to bring to your attention some changes that we’ll be working on in the upcoming year related to meeting planning. A special committee charged with studying the planning of the chapter’s annual meetings has recommended changes to our current practices. Currently, annual meetings are largely planned by persons in the host city or state. We’ll be transitioning away from that model and toward a model where much of the planning and execution will be carried out by standing Midwest Chapter/MLA committees. The first conference to be planned under the new model will be the 2019 meeting in Milwaukee, WI. I will be working with our standing Annual Meetings Committee and the board and committee chairs to restructure our committees to accommodate these changes. Thank you all for your support and help as we carry out this initiative. And thanks to the special Annual Meetings Committee members, Clare Liebfarth and Bette Sydelko (co-chairs), Deb Lauseng, and Liz Fine Weinfurter, for their thoughtful consideration and creative ideas.

On one last annual meeting note, budget time is just around the corner for many of us. Don’t forget to budget for attendance at the Midwest Chapter/MLA annual meeting October 5-8, 2018 in Cleveland, OH. I hope to Shake, Rattle, and Roll together with all of you!

Have a healthy and prosperous 2018!

2017 Midwest Chapter/MLA Awards and Scholarships Committee

Submitted by: Nicole Theis-Mahon (MN), Chair, Awards and Scholarships Committee

The 2016-2017 Awards and Scholarships Committee members included: Abigail Goben (IL), Matt Hoy (MN), Anna Beth Morgan (MN), Nicole Theis-Mahon (MN), and Karen Hanus (WI), President-Elect.  I want to thank them for their service, flexibility, and responsiveness.

After reviewing Chapter finances in the fall the Chapter Executive Board decided to add back some awards and scholarships. As a result there was enough funds to cover two awards for the student scholarships and plaques and monetary awards were reinstated for the Distinguished Librarian of the Year Award or the Jean Williams Sayre Innovation Award for 2017.

The committee decided to wait until promoting the scholarships until the budget was known and as a result the activity of promoting these awards lasted through the summer.

Award Recipients:

  • MLA Free Roundtable Lunch Awards – JJ Pionke (IL)
  • Student Annual Meeting Award – Caroline Hogan (IA)
  • First-Time Attendee Award – Allison Erlinger (OH)

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.”

Marketing- Outreach-Ministry-Ambience: What shades are your libraries?

 If you are asked –or rather WHEN you are asked –to describe your libraries, or their ministry—(which is the operative term in our Franciscan hospitals here in Indiana)—ideally in a paragraph or less, as is sometimes the requirement—how would you respond? What would you write? How would you place a career of impressions, ideas, aspirations, and actual observations into one paragraph?

The four terms above are not a formula or a mantra, or even an established model. However, they are vivid entries which come to mind when we contemplate, or even plan, the direction of our libraries—either in the way we wish to steer them, or what our administrators and library patrons anticipate, or even expect, of us.

While each term is defined within established parameters and practices, the interpretation and planning of each entity is as varied as the folks, or we, who ponder and plan.  And while we are inclined, and even urged, to “dream big,” we are undoubtedly also warned to “keep it simple and budget wisely.

Many of us may equate “marketing” with advertising and promoting our libraries, services, and resources to our constituents or patrons—and most of us are already so overscheduled and buried in tasks and projects that we wonder why we would even need to market our services—how would we reliably and safely accommodate even more patrons, more tasks, deadlines, and expectations? And “real” marketing is expensive and time-consuming; and most of us do not have enough staff, budget, or time to launch such a plan.

However, if we ponder the next three terms: outreach, ministry, and ambience, we may be effectively marketing our libraries and services without the cost, staff, plans, and time commitments which may be required for formal marketing. We are simply doing our work—helping, guiding, teaching, welcoming, encouraging folks to learn and become lifelong learners.
