Illinois Heartland Library System recently featured two HSLI members, Nina Pals and Anieta Trame (both of Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Center in Mattoon), in its “Member Services: Site Visits at Special Libraries” update. Anna Yackle, Membership Coordinator at IHLS, visited Sarah Bush Lincoln HC to learn about the services it provides and recent projects Pals and Trame, who share director responsibilities, have undertaken. The part of the report covering Sarah Bush Lincoln HC is below.
Next I visited the Nina Pals and Anieta Trame at the Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Center in Mattoon. Nina is listed as the Director, but she says Anieta and she share the position. They actively encourage members of the public to come in and use their library and do outreach within the hospital to help staff, patients and their families keep current with the latest medical advancements as well as any general questions they may have. These smart and creative women were able to create a one-page annual report that using infographics to provide an accurate and engaging illustration of the dynamic asset the library is to the hospital.
