Library Staff Present at the Medical Library Association (MLA) Annual Meeting

Library liaisons Jonquil Feldman, Karen Barton, Chris Gaspard, Emme Lopez, and Circulation Desk supervisor Louis Barcenes created a poster titled “Daring to Reexamine and Reexamine a Reference Service: Is It Needed?,” which was presented at the Medical Library Association’s (MLA) Annual Meeting at the end of May. The poster outlined the reasoning behind the transformation of the library’s AskALibrarian reference service model, which occurred twice within the past year in order to better serve patrons. After the presentation, some MLA participants requested a reference services resource created by the librarians, which was featured in the poster.

In addition to the poster, Jonquil Feldman moderated a Lightning Papers session in which 15 papers were presented on topics ranging from library initiatives to library-community partnerships.
