Medical Information Day

Howdy, Librarians! Just a fast reminder that Tuesday, April 11, 2006 is Medical Information Day, and the Academy is celebrating thusly:

Tap into the 4-1-1 on medical information, on Tuesday, April 11, 2006, when the Medical Library Association (MLA) celebrates "Medical Information Day" in recognition of the invaluable information and vast range of services medical librarians provide for their institutions and local communities.

To celebrate information day and learn more about how medical librarians can help you, the staff at the New York Academy of Medicine Library invites you for a day of demos at 1216 5th Avenue on the third floor of the Library.  These mini-classes, designed to help you more effectively use the library’s various electronic resources, will be held every hour on the half hour from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm in the Hartwell Room.  In addition, a staff-only demo on the new features in Groupwise will be held at 12 noon. All demos are free and open to the staff as well as the general public unless otherwise noted.
