HSLI Annual Conference 2017: Nancy’s Reception and Networking

Health Science Librarians of Illinois (HSLI) Annual Conference receptions provide a wonderful opportunity for Conference attendees, presenters, exhibitors, and guests to relax, network, and enjoy good food. Now a tradition at the Conferences, the annual Reception honors Nancy Stump, a longtime, fun-loving, active HSLI member who served as HSLI President from 1990 to 1993. Each year, Nancy’s Reception is unique in its own special way. This year’s Nancy’s Reception will take place on Thursday evening, October 26, in the congenial ambiance of The Chateau, the Conference hotel.

What can attendees expect to do at the 2017 Conference reception? They can examine 10 professional posters and discuss them with their peers, the presenters. They will have an opportunity to watch a presentation by Illinois State University chemistry professor Dr. Marjorie Jones, called “Magic Show: Is it Science or Magic?”, and chat with the “magician professor” afterwards. They can bid on items donated by vendors and their colleagues in the Silent Auction, which benefits the HSLI scholarship fund. Last, but not least, they can enjoy a good meal at the end of a busy Conference day.

Plan on joining HSLI colleagues and guests at this year’s HSLI Annual Conference and Nancy’s Reception in Bloomington, IL, from October 25 to October 27. For more information, visit the Conference website.
