DAHSL: Developing Academic Health Sciences Libraries


a collaboration to create the 21st century academic health sciences library…

Final agenda for AAMC and a request for volunteers!!

Colleagues:  here is the agenda as of today! Please note agenda items #s A-F, under  #2.  In order to share results with everyone, even those who did not submit their data, we request 56 volunteers for each of A-F below to study the survey data, and analyze and summarize it for the group that evening. So, we ask those of you who have rec’d the data from Barbara to volunteer to take the section of your choice! Please email me of your preference: jddoyle@email.arizona.edu and thanks! Once we have our volunteers, we will provide a template or outline for your short presentation! AAHSL will provide us with a flip chart and easel so we can document our discussions and I will bring a laptop for that purpose.

Don’t forget to either bring a meal or snack, as sadly we have no way to provide that for us…see agenda item 4B  below!

We look forward to seeing you and spending productive time together!

Jacque and Barbara
