The Joint Meeting of the Medical Library Group of Southern California and Arizona (MLGSCA) and the Northern California and Nevada Medical Library Group (NCNMLG) was held at the Renaissance Glendale Hotel and Spa in Glendale, Arizona, January 27-30, 2010.

125 attendees enjoyed the beauty and serenity of the Arizona desert while participating in a stimulating program that featured a diverse field of speakers and continuing education opportunities.

Continuing education courses included Emerging Technologies for Librarians, Understanding Healthcare Literature, PubMed Rediscovered, Creating Online Tutorials, and Locating Cancer Information.

Meeting activities were shared via the “Connect/Follow/Share” link on the JM2010 website.  The program featured 16 posters and 21 contributed papers.  Blog posts were submitted by 16 official bloggers along with photos on Flickr and posts to the JM2010 Facebook page.

Attendees responded very positively when surveyed about the program schedule, content, and quality of the sessions, the exhibit hall (32 vendors!!), the networking and social activities, and the conference facility.

The comprehensive final report is available on the MLGSCA website.
