Join us Thursday April 11th, for a #medlibs Twitter chat at 6pm Pacific/9 Eastern on the topic of becoming a medical librarian, hosted by Kate Flewelling (@flewkate).
Experienced librarians: What's the best career advice you ever got? What was your path to medical librarianship? What skills do you look for when hiring a new librarian? New and aspiring
medical librarians: Bring your career questions!
Some resources to get the discussion rolling:
