In a few days a bunch of medical librarians will be heading to or already in Boston for the Medical Library Association’s 2013 Annual Meeting. I will be there and I will be blogging, along with other people. There will be “Early Riser” bloggers who will writing about sunrise seminars and all sorts of stuff that happens at 7 am. There will be “First Timers” and “Distinguished Members” writing about the conference from their perspective. The complete list of bloggers can be found here.
I will be writing as the “Unofficial MLA Insider.” What does this mean? Well it is a blogging title that I made up and pitched to Kate and she thought it would be a good idea.
Bascially this is my idea of what my title and what types of posts I will be writing:
I am not an MLA newbie and while I am technically distinguished with 10+ yrs of MLA-ness, I certainly don’t feel like I’ve been around that long. I feel like somebody who is in the thick of their career and involvement within MLA. I feel like somebody who is active and wants to be more active and help get others active as well. I know when I first decided to get involved (way after my newbie years) I didn’t know how to do it and how things were done within MLA. Everything seemed to be a great mystery to me. As the “Unofficial MLA Insider” I will be blogging about how things work at MLA so that if you are interested in getting involved you have a better understanding of what is going on.
So if you are interested in my posts or that of other MLA bloggers, please check out the MLA’13 Conference Blog. For the couple of days I will be posting there as well as tweeting using the hashtag #mlanet13.
