PNC/MLA Coverage – Day 2

A great conference wrapped up too quickly with a presentation by Jeff Crump, digital librarian of MercyCorps, showing the challenges and opportunities of managing and accessing health information for an international relief organization. A lot of their structure involves strong core knowledge management concepts and I will definitely be reflecting on his presentation. Having information organization “starting to look like a shared drive instead of a knowledge sharing site” really resonated with me since I see way too much of that across the library field.

Updates from the Medical Library Association (MLA), the National Library of Medicine (NLM) and the National Network of Libraries of Medicine Pacific Northwest Region (NN/LM PNR) are also included in the Google Doc with the same caveat that my notes aren’t necessarily accurate, coherent or complete – I’ll go back and edit later.

I missed the stat talks but grabbed the Twitter broadcast below:

Thanks to the PNC/MLA 2010 planning committee for a great time in Portland!!
