(via the National Network of Libraries of Medicine – Greater Midwest Region)

The Midwest Chapter of the Medical Library Association Annual Conference in Cleveland, Ohio, is just around the corner.  On Saturday October 6th, the GMR will be providing two separate continuing education courses during the event. Each will provide 4 MLA contact hours of continuing education. More details here.

Open Science for Health Sciences Librarians: Open Science pursues the goals of transparency in experimental methodology, observation, and collection of data; publicly availability and reusability of scientific data; public accessibility, and using web-based tools to facilitate collaboration. This course will offer an overview of the role of open science and its components in health sciences research, its implementation throughout the workflow of the research process, locating and creating open sciences policies for use at your institution, and assessing open source tools currently available.

Precision Medicine: Precision medicine is an approach to disease management that considers individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle. This course will provide participants with some baseline knowledge of genomics, an overview of the clinical applications of genomic medicine, an appreciation of the associated ethical and social issues inherent in this field and a review of NLM resources for health professionals and consumers.

The IS Current Issues Virtual Discussion Forum is an opportunity for an individual or group of instruction librarians to explore and discuss a topic related to library instruction and information literacy. This completely virtual discussion happens in advance of the 2019 ALA Midwinter Meeting on Thursday, January 17 at 2PM EST/11AM PST.

What do you wish librarians were talking about in library instruction and information literacy? You can help make that conversation happen! The steering committee welcomes proposals from librarians interested in convening this discussion on a topic of their choosing – we take care of the technology logistics and you take care of the interactive presentation and discussion questions!

The committee welcomes proposals on any topic, but Instruction Section members have specifically expressed interest in the following: active learning across different learning environments, information literacy across different learning environments, critical pedagogy/instruction/librarianship, curriculum mapping, creating relationships across campus, assessment, visual literacy, etc.

If you would like to share your knowledge, help your peers learn from one another, and spark a lively conversation, submit a proposal to lead the IS Current Issues Virtual Discussion Forum today:
