Library Update

New Faces at the Library

Our 2015-16 College work study students are: Glorya Albertini, Brittany Canter, Yuliya Fonin, Abbey Gulley, Jessica Hutchinson, Christina Morris, Taylor O'Dell, and Taylor Rickert. They are happy to assist you with many things including checking out a book or laptop, printing an article, accessing a database or basic reference guidance.

We also want to welcome our Cristo Rey High School students who will be with us through Spring 2016. Haili Arnold, Mariel Dillon, Victoria Langley and Miguel Maldonado each spend one day a week at the library assisting at the circulation desk, answering phones and learning about working in a professional environment. It is all part of Cristo Rey's unique program where every student has a work-study position. Please stop by and greet our dedicated students.

Library Staff Presentations

Library staff are traveling to the 2015 Midwest Chapter Annual Conference of the Medical Library Association in Louisville, Kentucky, October 2-6. Stevo Roksandic, Regional Director of MCHS Library Services; Liz Mady, Reference Librarian; and Donald Pearson, Library Technology Specialist are presenting "Tell me, I'll forget. Show me, I'll remember. Involve me, I'll understand: Implementing multimedia applications for Library instruction." Roksandic and Toni Pallotta, consumer health librarian, will present the poster "People Centered Health Care: Consumer Health Librarians on the Front Line." In addition, Roksandic will be a panelist in the conference's tech forum, discussing and sharing his experiences with MCHS Library Services technology innovations and education-on-demand (‘Library-On-Demand’ services).
