HSLI 2010 Conference: Call for Roundtable Moderators for Friday October 22

Roundtable Moderators Needed! Consider that moderating a conference discussion group qualifies as professional activity for MLA credit for Academy certification. The following 8 partnership topics have been selected by the conference registrants as their most highly desired Topics (the topics are grouped in descending order of interest): Embedded Librarians; Librarians and Students; Librarians and Administration; Librarians and Nurses; Librarians and Physicians; Multi-Type Library Partnerships (including the Illinois State funding crisis)Librarians and Researchers; Identifying Potential Partners.

The Roundtable Discussions are scheduled from 8:45 am – 10:15 am on Friday, October 22. Discussions will be moderated for 45 minutes with an expected attendance of from 6-8 attendees. Each discussion will be offered twice to allow participants to attend more than one discussion. You do not have to be an expert in the topic, you only need to have an interest and the ability to encourage participants to carry on an active discussion.

To moderate one of these discussions please respond to Roy Jones (royden.r.jones@osfhealthcare.org) or Linda Feinberg (lfeinberg@northshore.org). Please respond by October 15th so we can make assignments and prepare a sign for your discussion group.
