    MHSLA 2018 Annual Educational Conference - Registration Open NOW!

    October 11-12, 2018 at the newly remodeled Park Place Hotel in Traverse City!

    We are planning an exciting lineup of continuing education courses, vendor exhibits, special events, and opportunities for our members to present papers, lightning rounds, and posters.

     We are thrilled to announce our keynote speaker, Mary Ellen Bates. Ms. Bates is a nationally-recognized speaker who is always funny, smart, and engaging. Friday’s keynote talk, (ROI) Truth to Power: Measuring and Talking About What Matters, will focus on measuring and communicating why we do what we do, and the impact it has on our organization’s most important goals. 

    Concurrent continuing education courses will include: Doctor Speak for Medical Librarians (4-hour CE)  Introduction to Data Visualization with Tableau Public (2-hour CE) and
    Protecting Human Subjects Data in Health Sciences Research (2-hour CE).

    Ms. Bates will present her very popular Super Searcher Strategies course Thursday afternoon.

    Wednesday's Opening Reception will be an informal gathering at the “Top of the Park” to meet with friends and colleagues. 

    For the Special Event on Thursday night, we’ll gather at the historic City Opera House to mingle and meet local author, Mardi Link. Ms. Link received rave reviews for her true crime books and memoir. She’ll be on hand after her presentation to sign books.
