This is a reminder that registration for the 2022 Health Science Librarians of Illinois Annual Conference closes Wednesday,  August 31. The Conference will take place entirely online, from Wednesday, September 7, to Friday, September 9. The cost is $20.00 for HSLI members and $30.00 for non-members. Please register online or by mail here.

The meeting will feature a keynote presenter, continuing-education sessions, lightning talks, posters, and opportunities to socialize virtually with your librarian colleagues. One of the CE sessions is “Self-Care 101”, presented by Dawn Behrend, Instruction and Outreach Librarian at Lenoir-Rhyne University in Hickory, North Carolina. The session will take place from 8:30 to 11:30 AM CDT on Friday, September 9. Note that the session does not carry any MLA CE credit. Please see below for a description.

Librarianship can be stressful! With shrinking budgets, challenging patron behaviors, and co-worker conflicts, librarians often find themselves faced with workplace stressors they never anticipated. Second-career librarian, Dawn Behrend, is a master’s level clinical psychologist and will share tips for librarians to engage in self-care to thrive in their chosen profession.
