    Register Today! April MLA Webinar - Developing a Systematic Review Service

    The MDMLG Professional Development Committee has received funding from the NN/LM GMR to host the MLA webinar, “Developing & Managing a Systematic Review Service.” The webinar will take place on Tuesday, April 24 from 2:00-3:30pm EST and is worth 1.5 MLA CE credits.

    Registration: To register, please complete the online registration form to view the recording (good 180 days past April 24). We will not be hosting a live viewing at a site.

    If you have any trouble accessing the form, please email me and I will get you registered.

    We received GMR funding for a license that includes 25 MLA access codes that allow individuals to log-in to their MEDLIB-ED account, watch the live webinar or recording, complete the evaluation, and claim their CE certificate.

    As a result, access codes will be provided on a first come, first served basis to the first 25 registrants. MDMLG members will receive first priority, but registration will open up to MHSLA next Wednesday, March 28. If multiple registrants from the same institution register, you may be asked to pair up to view the webinar at your site. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

    Thanks!

    CE Course: Financial Advocacy -- Thursday, April 19, 2018


    The MDMLG Professional Development Committee cordially invites you to attend the CE Course “Financial Advocacy: Turning Data into Ammunition” taught by Barbara Jones. This course is accredited for 3 MLA CE Credits. This session is being offered to you at a reduced price due to a generous grant through MHSLA!

    When: April 19th, 2018 
    Time: 9:00am-12:00pm
    Location: University of Detroit Mercy, McNichols Campus Library. 3rd Fl, Rm 324, 4001 W. McNichols Road, Detroit, MI 48221-3038
    **NEW: RECORDING** If you are unable to attend on April 19 in person, as a pilot, this CE will be recorded and made available after the in-person session. You will still be eligible to receive CE credit even if you watch the recording.
    Cost:      $25.00 for MDMLG and MHSLA members
                    $50.00 for Non-members
                    $15.00 for Students
                    $75.00 for Institutions (note: only the individual registering for the institution can receive CE Credit)

    Please register using the online form: (Click Here) by April 12th.
    Payment can be made through PayPal (Click Here) or by sending a check (mailing address is listed on the registration form)

    The overall goal of the class is for students to establish a basic knowledge of how the library contributes to the larger organization and to be able to present that value in financial terms.  We hope that students/learners will follow up with their library's data, complete and submit their information to the Library Valuation Calculators in order to show the value of a larger number of libraries and to establish a benchmark for their performance.  The course content will include analyzing mission statements, reviewing data and statistical concepts, analyzing both qualitative and quantitative data and exploring different ways to inform the hospital management about the library's financial contributions.  Instructional methods include lecture, discussion, individual exercises.  Students should have a basic familiarity with library-generated data (usage, costs, and different services).

    We look forward to seeing you!

    Thank you,
    The MDMLG Professional Development Committee
