Remember the summer?

For those of us who have forgotten what sunshine looked like, here is an excellent journal produced by the Library and Information Health Network Northwest. Its a brilliant read and in this issue is a lovely write up on this summer's International Clinical Librarian Conference in Birmingham - with lots of pictures showing us all in wonderful June weather...

The greatest show on earth?

Paper and Poster Submission for MLA ’13 in Boston

MLA ’13, will take place on May 3–8, 2013, in Boston, and will incorporate the 11th International Congress on Medical Librarianship (ICML), the 7th International Conference of Animal Health Information Specialists (ICAHIS), and the 6th International Clinical Librarians Conference. Submission of papers and posters (using the MLA submission system) will begin earlier than usual because of the lead times needed for international participants. Submissions for the MLA 13 opened on November 30, 2011. The 2013 contributed papers and posters submission deadline is May 1, 2012.  Final findings and results may be added to the accepted papers and posters up to 1st February 2013, so you don’t have to have completed research to submit a paper or abstract. The same system will be used for submissions to all four parts of the incorporated meeting – MLA, ICML, ICAHIS and ICLC.
The 2013 meeting theme is “One World: Information in an Interdependent World,” which emphasizes global interdependencies in all health-related areas. “One Health” is meant to encompass not only human and animal health, but also public health, environmental health, climate change, food safety and production, and international health policy.
For access to the online submission process, instructions, and a list of section program themes, see www.mlanet.org/am/am2013/.
