    MHSLA06: MSHLA's Strategic Plan
    Jennifer Barlow reviewed MHSLA's new strategic plan.

    Three themes:

    1. Communication / Marketing / Outreach & Advocacy.
    -Help members to articulate the value of their libraries
    -Actively recruit new members
    -Communicate effectively with existing members

    2. Adapt to the changing information landscape.
    -Employ technology to operate efficiently
    -Educate members about new technologies
    -Educate members about basic tools of the trade

    3. Build Coalitions to promote health literacy.
    -Educate members about low health literacy
    -Help members educate clinicians
    -Encourage members to promote literacy work
    -Help ensure access to appropriate patient education materials

    Outcomes to avoid:
    *Letting traditional strengths slip
    *Trying to be all things to all members
    *Trying once and giving up

    Discussion -

    Has there been a question or point of interst for the research paper? What would we measure? LOS? Adverse effects?

    Suggestion - focus groups with hospital administrators to get a handle on what matters to them.
