The Medical Library Association will be meeting Boston on May for its annual meeting, May 3–8, 2013. This year’s theme is “One Health.” Simmons Graduate School of Library Science students can earn complimentary one day registration by volunteering during the meeting. We are looking for volunteers to staff an informational booth promoting next year’s 2014 MLA Annual Meeting in Chicago (theme “Building Our Information Future”) in two-hour shifts. In addition to the opportunity to attend this professional conference, student volunteers will have the opportunity to network with medical librarians who are volunteering at the booth as well. If you think it is appropriate, we would appreciate if you would distribute this request to your students?
Volunteers will assist visitors to the booth in entering into daily prize drawings, distribute promotional materials for Chicago, and encourage attendance at next year’s meeting in the Windy City. You don’t have to be from Chicago to help! An online signup sheet is available, so please sign up today. You can volunteer for one or more two-hour time slots on Saturday evening (May 4), or during the day Sunday, Monday or Tuesday (May 5-7).
