Dear Student:

As a member of the HSLI Annual Conference Planning Committee, I invite you to attend the 2018 Annual Conference of the Health Science Librarians of Illinois this fall. It will take place in Rockford, IL, at the Cliffbreakers Riverside Hotel & Conference Center from Wednesday, September 26, to Friday, September 28. The Conference will feature continuing-education opportunities, invited speakers, poster sessions and talks, and a vendor showcase, along with networking opportunities for library and information science students to learn about health sciences librarianship from professionals in the field.

We also encourage students to consider volunteering at the Conference. We are currently seeking two volunteers to help with registration, taking photos of events, taking down displays, and delivering messages between sessions. In return for their assistance, students will receive a waiver for the Conference registration fee, with the added benefit of being able to include the experience on their professional resume.

To apply, students need to fill out this form and attach their resume.  Applications are due Monday, August 20.  Applicants will be informed of the decision by Monday, August 27.

If you have any questions regarding this opportunity, please contact me, at mnielsenott@methodistcol.edu.  For general questions about the Annual Conference or the Health Science Librarians of Illinois organization, please e-mail Eric Edwards, Chair of the 2018 HSLI Annual Conference Publicity Subcommittee, at EEdwards@ilsos.net. You may also learn more on the Conference page of the HSLI website.
