  • Lauren Coil Reports on MLA | Library and information science
    attend this year s conference of the Medical Library Association It was a great experience for me During the conference I got to attend several informative sessions and I also met several contacts in which I hope to keep in touch with and hopefully work with in the future I was also able to reconnect with my supervisor from my NLM Alternative Spring Break experience I think the most fascinating thing about the conference was learning how much work librarians do outside of the library I attended several sessions on community outreach in both the United States and internationally A lot of work is currently being done in underserved or minority communities as well as developing countries Many librarians are focused on issues such as health literacy and social justice in regard to equal access to information They are also very involved in teaching and community education It is really an exciting time to be a medical library profession There were also several sessions on how to teach evidence based literature searching to health practitioners Librarians are partnering with hospitals and medical centers to teach methods for finding systematic reviews and other high quality types of literature Libraries are also becoming a much more community centered organization than ever before There was a lecture on how libraries can be a place that citizens can turn to for health information and shelter in times of crises Steven Johnson the author of Ghost Map and contributing editor for Wired magazine was one of the plenary speakers He was fascinating to listen to and he gave a great talk on the way that great ideas develop He spoke on how you need a diverse group of thinkers and people from all disciplines to do something truly revolutionary He stated that he thought librarians
