Our Librarians rocked out at the Midwest Chapter MLA Conference in Cleveland!

MLA Midwest

Ruth Lilly Medical Librarians have returned stoked and electrified from the Midwest Chapter of the Medical Library Association’s (MWMLA) Shake, Rattle and Roll themed conference that took place in Cleveland (home to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame) early in October.  Librarians from all around the region gathered together to learn about the latest trends and accomplishments in the Midwest’s health sciences libraries.  Attendees participated in continuing education sessions, keynote presentations, papers and posters.

We are proud to showcase our own librarians’ accomplishments and contributions at this year’s conference.

Laura Menard presents her paper, Teaching and Learning EBM for Librarians: A Collaborative Program.

Kellie Kaneshiro and Jason Lilly discuss their poster presentation, The Rise of Artificial Intelligence in Medicine: Evaluating the Present Landscape and Considering Implications for the Future.
