MDMLG Fall General Business Meeting and Webinar

I just wanted to send out the information for the MDMLG Fall General Business Meeting and Webinar event which will take place on October 6, 2022.  Both events will be virtual.  A brief agenda for the day is below:

     12:45-1:45pm            Business Meeting

     1:45-2:00pm              Break 

     2:00-4:00pm              Webinar - Picture This! Exploring Copyright Issues Through Image Use Case Studies

Since I will be teaching a class during the business meeting and program time, Elizabeth Bucciarelli has agreed to run the business meeting.  Information and a link to the business meeting are below.  After the business meeting, those who have registered to attend the webinar program can connect via the link they received in their email.  To view the webinar, an access code will be provided to all registrants within two days of the webinar date. Each registrant will need a MEDLIB-ED account to participate. These accounts are free to set-up, and you don’t have to be an MLA member to register for one.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone at both events.

Picture This! Exploring Copyright Issues Through Image Use Case Studies 

  • Date/Time: Thursday, October 6, 2022, 2:00pm – 4:00pm EST.
  • If you can’t attend the live webinar, a recording will be available for viewing within 180 days

Registration: We will not be holding live viewings at a particular site; participants will attend remotely. There is no charge for this webinar. To register to view the live webinar and/or the recording, please complete the Online Registration Form.

To view the webinar, an access code will be provided to all registrants within two days of the webinar date. You will need a MEDLIB-ED account to participate if you don’t already have one. These are free to set-up, and you don’t have to be an MLA member. 

CE Credit: As with previous MLA webinars, we received Region 6 funding for a license that includes 25 CE codes for 25 individuals to claim 2 contact hours of MLA CE credit. CE codes will be provided on a first come, first served basis to the first 25 registrants that request it. You can view the webinar without claiming CE. To claim CE, individuals log-in to their MEDLIB-ED account, watch the live webinar or recording, complete the evaluation, and claim CE certificates.
