We are fortunate to welcome Sarah Sheehan as the Health Sciences Interest Group Vice-Convener for 2015 – 16!
Sarah is an Liaison Librarian for the College of Health & Human Services at George Mason University. From her candidate’s statement:
Since the very first meeting of the HSIG, I have felt that this organization fills a gap in the professional development arena for health sciences librarians such as myself. The collegiality and quality of the programming provided by the HSIG has had a real and positive impact on my development as a health sciences librarian. ACRL and librarianship as a whole are dynamic and in this fast changing environment, staying informed professionally becomes increasingly important. The HSIG provides a wonderful mechanism to provide quality professional development opportunities and collaboration. As the Vice- Convener of the HSIG, this affords me the opportunity to share my leadership, collaboration, advocacy and creative skills with my colleagues in HSIG.
The ACRL Health Sciences Group Vice-Convener position is a one-year term with a three-year commitment as Vice-Convener , Convener and Past-Convener. The candidate must be a current HSIG member to run for office. Please consider running in the future and don’t forget about these events and meetings at ALA Annual in San Francisco and please let the group know about other programs of interest that I may have missed.
