Aim for Excellence!
October is National Medical Librarians Month Library services and quality health information can reduce hospital costs, length of stay, changes in diagnosis and clinical decision making, and improve patient outcomes. Find out how librarians can improve your organization’s standard of care. This year’s theme for Medical Librarians Month is “Aim for Excellence.” Medical librarians add skill and value to have a positive impact on their institutions. Members of the Medical Library Association (MLA) may request a free poster which highlights research studies proving patients receive better care and institutions save money with information from medical librarians. Themed posters from previous Medical Librarians Months are available here. And there’s more … to win an annual meeting registration, an MLA membership, or registration for a webinar, enter this year’s Medical Librarian’s Month contest, sponsored by the Medical Library Association. Submit a high quality original photograph of you (and/or your colleagues) in your workplace doing your job. See contest rules and prize information here. Contact Tomi Gunn at MLA with questions. Submission deadline is end of day December 31, 2016. Good luck!
