Slides from Deborah Blecic 

In this year's sponsored but no holds barred lunch, the conference theme, "Too much is not enough", resonates. Lunch host, Wendy Bahnsen from Rittenhouse, will offer a brief greeting, and Ramune Kubilius will provide the traditional “year in review” synopsis. Moderator Andrea Twiss-Brooks will set the scene, provide a brief introduction to issues of current interest in the health sciences information arena, and will introduce the speakers. The discussants will then guide participants on a tour that will feature short updates and ideas on different topics. After each presentation, a "rest stop" will allow for discussion by all participants, before the session moves on to the next theme. Topics will include: methods of measurement of health sciences journal use (Deborah Blecic); shared collection development and policies (Elizabeth Ketterman); scholarly communication activities in health sciences libraries (Robin Champieux); current challenges, trials, pitfalls and successes of ebooks in the health sciences (Anneliese Taylor); provision of information resources for basic scientists (Marysue Schaffer). Though every attempt will be made to bring each other up to date, too much discussion on these and related topics can never be enough!
