I can hardly imagine a more exciting and opportunity-filled position than to be the member of Northern California & Nevada Medical Library Group and to serve as its elected president. Our chapter has a long history that brings us the responsibility to cultivate and grow our professional success. This year we are celebrating the 65th anniversary of NCNMLG’s establishment. My aim in working with you closely is to thrive on being a learning organization. There will be several learning opportunities presented through the year and I hope that we can participate and benefit from them. I am proud to share with you that our members have made them possible either by teaching the course or hosting it at their university location. Notably, one option is the “Facebook and Social Media” webinar on September 19 and the “Information Treasure Hunt: Supporting Evidence-Based Practice @ Your Institution,” on November 30. Some other upcoming learning option is the “Internet Librarian conference and its companion training Internet@SchoolsTrack” on October 22-24 where our members can benefit a substantial discount.
Hope to see you there!
Judith Weiner Mills, NCNMLG President
