Excellent Webcast Held Thursday, Nov 11!

Thanks to organizer Bryan Nugent and host Nita (Splitorff) Malendar, about 20 members enjoyed an excellent MLA Webcast Thursday!  It was called ” The Art and Practice of Electronic Journal, Book, and Database Licenses: Practical Tips for Health Care Organizations” and all present deemed it a success.  See MLANet for details.  An efficient and productive business meeting followed.  One decision made was the agreement to explore a blog as an alternative to the website, hence this post!

It was fun to welcome new members as well as some not seen in a while!  The next gathering is the annual holiday celebration, December 4. Watch your inbox for details.
