We are very pleased to announce a recipient for the Andornot Professional Development Grant for 2018: Gayle Graham of the Nova Scotia Health Authority.
Gayle is relatively new to health sciences librarianship, and has never attended a conference specifically about health libraries. She will use the grant to attend the Canadian Health Libraries Association (CHLA) Conference in St. John’s this June. Gayle notes that “as a new organization, we would really benefit from an update on what's happening in the wider community of health sciences libraries.”
Andornot strongly believes in the value of attending conferences to foster professional development. We attend events across Canada and the United States all year long to learn about new trends and technologies, meet with clients, and share our expertise with like-minded folks.
We inaugurated this grant last year, awarding it to Mark Goodwin of the BC Cancer Agency. We were delighted to be able to offer this grant again this year, and only wish we could send everyone who applied to the conference of their choice.
We hope that everyone who applied, and all of you, will also be able to attend a conference this year. Check out the list of ones we’ll be at and drop by to say hi if you can.
