The Health Science Librarians of Illinois (HSLI) will offer three-continuing education sessions at the annual virtual conference. Registration is still open! To register, go here. The deadline is Friday, October 22.

CE1:  Charting a new course: practical data visualization for librarians presented by Annette Mendoza and Karen Gutzman
2 MLA CE
Data visualization is used to communicate complex information and explore trends in large sources of data. Compelling data visualization requires thoughtful planning and execution; from understanding the data, choosing the right chart, balancing visual cues, and providing narratives to tell interesting stories. This course gives attendees a strong foundation in the principles of data visualization. In addition, attendees will use Microsoft Excel, a common but incredibly powerful tool, to visualize library-relevant data through a series of hands-on activities. Attendees will gain practical and immediately useful skills for visualizing both qualitative and quantitative data.

CE2:  Supporting Medical Education through Emerging Technologies and Innovation Services presented by Elisandro Cabada
No CE credit
In this session you will learn how the Library can support medical education through emerging technology services. See examples of how emerging tech is being applied in libraries throughout the nation and learn how to develop your own services. Gain insight into the fundamental question of “Why is the Library providing access to emerging tech?”

CE3:  Evidence Based Medicine for Complementary, Alternative and Integrative Medicine (CAIM) presented by Peg (Margaret) Burnette
No CE credit
According to the National Institutes of Health, more than 30% of adults use non-conventional approaches to medical care. The terms “complementary” and “alternative” and “integrative” are commonly used to describe non-traditional medicine but there are distinctions. Complementary approaches are used in combination with conventional medicine and alternative approaches are used in place of traditional medicine. These therapies can include nutritional, physical, or psychological approaches and can be used in various combinations. Integrative medicine represents a coordinated strategy that includes both conventional and complementary approaches to health care.

These therapies are considered by some to be little hoaxes or snake oil, but are lifelines for others. And so, it is critical to consider these approaches through the lens of evidence-based medicine (EBM). This session will present the basics of CAIM and discuss the intersection of CAIM and EBM through an interactive case study. In this climate of mis- and dis-information, it is critical to consider the science to inform decision making for traditional, non-traditional, and integrated management or prevention in health care.

Even though the 2020 HSLI Annual Conference will not take place in person, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Conference Planning Committee is still offering several online events for members to improve their knowledge of health sciences archives and receive the latest updates from the HSLI Board. Read below for more details.

On Thursday, November 12, from 12:00 to 2:00 PM,  attend the virtual CE session “Health Sciences Archives 101”. The presenter is Lisa A. Mix, who has worked in archives at several academic medical centers, including Johns Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore, the University of California San Francisco, and New York-Presbyterian/ Weill Cornell Medicine in New York. Attendees will learn about basic archives functions, including acquisitions and preservation. Other topics that the CE session will cover include privacy regulations, funding sources, and outreach, along with best practices and other strategies for adapting to the COVID-19 era.

A complete description of the session, along with a biography of the speaker, is available here. To register, please go here. There is no charge to attend, and non-members are welcome to participate, although they are encouraged to consider joining HSLI.

Then, on Friday, November 13, attend the virtual HSLI Business Meeting, from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM. This event is open to all current HSLI members. (Registration is forthcoming; please watch the listserv and the website for details.) Attendees will receive updates from the HSLI officers and the chairs of the various committees on current HSLI activities and any plans for future initiatives. At the end of the meeting, the new officers will officially begin their terms.

(via Royden Jones, HSLI President)

The Health Science Librarians of Illinois (HSLI) 2020 Conference, previously scheduled for September 2-4 at Starved Rock Lodge & Conference Center (located in Oglesby, IL), has been cancelled. It is rescheduled for Wednesday, October 27, through Friday, October 29, 2021, at the same location.

The many uncertainties surrounding the current COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our membership, in addition to our educational and healthcare institutions, have made a face-to-face conference impractical for this September. The HSLI Board will be making an announcement later this summer regarding an online fall business meeting, likely to be scheduled for September or October. Our Conference Planning Committee will be investigating the possibility of hosting some sort of online continuing education, also for sometime in the fall.

Please check the Conference website for further updates as they become available.
