Five years after initial discussions, the Midcontinental Chapter of the Medical Library Association (MCMLA) successfully held its first virtual annual meeting in October 2015. Decreased attendance, rising costs, and availability of planning groups all contributed to the decision to “experiment” with this new meeting alternative.
In this #medlibs chat, learn about the planning process, how the meeting went, and what attendees had to say.
Follow the #medlibs hashtag on Thursday, November 19 at 9 p.m. Eastern and join in on the conversation on whether or not this model is a sustainable option for MLA Chapter meetings.
Check out this overview and come on in, we are a supportive community and especially welcome students and newcomers.
