La p'tite nouvelle au Conseil d'administration de l'ABSC

Lorsque j'ai posé ma candidature au poste de secrétaire de l'ABSC il y a quelques mois, mes collègues du comité organisateur du congrès 2014 et moi étions au beau milieu des préparatifs. Je suis régulièrement à la recherche de nouveaux défis (mettez ça sur le compte de la fin de quarantaine); et comme j'ai appris beaucoup de choses en participant à cette planification, je me suis dit que je pourrais m'impliquer à plus long terme dans l'association, question d'en apprendre encore davantage.

Rapport de la Société royale du Canada sur l'avenir des bibliothèques et des centres d'archives au Canada

La Société royale du Canada a effectué une consultation à travers le pays l'année dernière sur l'avenir des bibliothèques et des archives. Nos collègues de l'ASTED3S, chapitre québécois de l'ABSC, y avaient d'ailleurs participé en présentant comment les bibliothèques du milieu de la santé se concertent pour offrir des services de qualité malgré des ressources souvent limitées.

Value Propositions (Post Board meeting reflections)

I had never planned to sit on the CHLA/ABSC Board.  I also never planned to be a librarian but it turns out things happen even if you don't plan them.  When the (then) Past President Miriam Ticoll phoned to convince me to throw my hat in the ring for a 3 year commitment as VP, President and Past-President I paused.  More meetings, more work....a volunteer position on top of all the other demands on my time.  I thought about how great it is to see everyone at the conference every year and figured it was my turn to do the work.  But I must admit that the value proposition eluded me...

A Week in the Life of an Outreach Librarian: Day Four

Thursday was my fourth day in Northern Manitoba and I was excited about my first day in The Pas.  However, the day didn’t get off to the greatest start.  The Super 8 Hotel doesn’t have a gym, and it was too dark first thing in the morning to go for a run in a strange place.  I didn’t think that I was experiencing any adverse effects from travelling to three communities in four days, but after realizing that there wasn’t a shower curtain in my bathroom (at a time too late for the front desk to bring me one), I then mixed up my toiletries bottles and accidently used lotion in my hair

A Week in the Life of an Outreach Librarian: Day Three

Day three of my tour of Manitoba’s Northern Health Region started in the gym of the Victoria Inn.  For breakfast I was invited to the Executive Leadership Council of the region.  Unfortunately there was some miscommunication about what and when the food was arriving, so one of the executives went to the McDonald’s drive through for egg McMuffin’s for the group.  She was there and back in less than 13 minutes.  This is one of the extreme advantages of small town living – it does NOT take a long time to get around!

 

A Week in the Life of an Outreach Librarian: Day Two

Day two of my travelling road show to Northern Manitoba started with some time in the hotel’s fitness facility, then a lovely hot breakfast which was included in the stay of the hotel.  Casey, from the Office of Continuing Professional Development, joined our entourage and is travelling with us to do training sessions throughout the region on oral-systemic health for non-dental healthcare professionals.

 

A Week in the Life of an Outreach Librarian: Day One

This week I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to travel to four communities in northern Manitoba where I will be promoting Manitoba’s Health Information and Knowledge Network (MHIKNET)(pronounced “my net”).
