Relevant Issues #medlibs chat

AIDS information. Medical consequences of war. Health literacy. Workforce diversity.
For more than 30 years, the Relevant Issues section of MLA has focused on the wide range of ever-changing social issues that touch and concern our profession.
In 2014-2015, we want to hear from you.
What social issues would you like to see Relevant Issues act on, this year and in years to come? What issues affect how our patrons can access, use, and gain value from our information? What issues are important to address in the profession itself?
Moderated by section Chair Rachel Walden (@rachel_w) and Chair-Elect Kate Flewelling (@flewkate), we’ll discuss the issues important to you right now, what work you’d like to see the section tackle, and our 2014-2015 MLA program theme, “The Librarian as Activist.”
You do not need to be a Relevant Issues section member or even an active MLA member to participate in this chat. We would like input from as many people as possible!
