Other ideas for professional development:
John suggested we think about sending someone to an NIH grant writing course sponsored by NLM. The candidate for the course would then teach us what they learned.
We will ask Sharon Dennis about teaching her RSS, Wikis, and Blogs class, perhaps in the summer. Lynn wanted to see more hands-on professional development opportunities.
Additional revisions include:
Please see the proposed revisions as they are listed in the minutes from October 23rd.
UHSLC Union List:
Create a mechanism for oversight of UHSLC funds. One solution is to allow the officers to review the bank statements.
A copy of an annual edition of the union list will be provided on the UHSLC website.
Union List Coordinator will become an appointed position in UHSLC.
Participating libraries must have their Serial holdings updated by March 1st.

The meeting adjourned at 3:15
John: There is a lot of interest in the Information Rx pads. Jeanne said she talked to a 3rd year medical student who had used the pad in his/her rotation.
Camille: UHSLC received a thank you from the Road Home for its $150 gift this Christmas.
Lynn: Lynn had the opportunity to tell a patron about GoLocal, who found it extremely useful. This person had done a lot of work on a project to collect health resources, only to discover that what she had collected was not as up to date or comprehensive as GoLocal. Lynn's story sparked some ideas for disseminating information about the wealth of consumer health related resources that are available to our patrons.
Ellen: Ellen thanked the group for the warm welcome
Valeri: Valeri thanked John Bramble for his excellent service as her RML midcontinental liaison. She is also hiring an assistant librarian for the University of Southern Nevada's South Jordan campus.
Marilyn: There is an Evidence-Based Medicine decision making workshop in Park City March 2-3. The Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions is sponsoring this two-day workshop. UHSLC approved a motion to pay for one librarian to attend this event.
Next Meeting: The next UHSLC meeting will be held at the USN South Jordan Campus March 19th at 1:00. The address and a map will be sent with the meeting announcement. Also plan to join us before the meeting at 12:30 for a look at MedHome and the Docline Update.
