SCALA’s Brown Bag Talk – April 16, 2011

SCALA is proud to announce the brown bag talk for spring semester on April 16, 2011. We have scheduled a panel discussion  titled Being Future Ready with ORSLA and SLA. This will be a  panel discussion about the benefits and value of joining a professional association. The panel will talk about why it is important to be a member and get involved with ORSLA and SLA as a student. It promises to be a lively event and great exposure to some of the leaders in the Oregon and national library community. The panel will include:  

  • Cindy Romaine, SLA President, Romainiacs Intelligent Research;
  • Amy Maule, ORSLA President-elect, CH2M Hill               
  • Mecklem, Davis Wright Tremaine
  • Phoebe Owens, Wieden + Kennedy.

Former SCALA president Zoe Fisher had this to say about the event:

I just wanted to add that Cindy, Amy, Sue, and Phoebe are all very excited to meet with students! They’re funny, interesting ladies, so I really recommend you spend your lunch time with them – you won’t regret it.

As per usual, it will take place during a class lunch break. While we do not have specific time and place details yet, they will be forthcoming. Hope to see you there!

Next SCALA Brown Bag Lunch Speaker: Oregon Health Go Local

For our next brown bag lunch speaker we are pleased to welcome Emily Ford, the Oregon Health Go Local Project Manager. This project is being coordinated by the Oregon Health & Science University Library. Emily Ford is an MLS librarian and you may have seen her in the Oregon Health Go Local project booth at the recent

OLA/WLA conference.

“Oregon Health Go Local will be an online directory of health services and providers throughout the state. As

part of MedlinePlus Go Local, the Oregon Health Go Local database will be integrated with the National

Library of Medicine’s MedlinePlus database. From MedlinePlus health topics pages users will be able to

find health services and providers in Oregon based on specific health topics.”

Come learn more about this grant funded project. Emily Ford will speak about what the project is, why

it is being done and how you can become involved as a volunteer. Don’t miss this opportunity to engage with a local librarian and learn about a truly unique and exciting project.

When: Saturday June, 21st 12:15pm

Where: Cramer Hall Room 250 on the PSU campus

See you there!
