Back To Our Beginnings: Fall Networking Event

Medical and Scientific Libraries of Long Island (MEDLI) was founded in 1960. Although its stated purpose was to be a lending consortium, it developed into a group of members who collaborate, celebrate, and at times, commiserate with one another. This fall, we’re revisiting our origins to learn from one another. Join us for this special event to meet new and established medical and scientific librarians and public librarians who provide health information educational programming. Come away with a new idea and a new friend!

Date/Time: Monday, November 18, 2019
