It includes lecture, dialog, small and large group sharing, and individual planning and assessment exercises.


Michelynn McKnight, MM, MS/LIS, AHIP
Director, Health Sciences Library, Norman Regional Hospital, Norman, Oklahoma

A community hospital librarian for over nineteen years, McKnight has survived a dozen corporate reorganizations and managed to consistently improve and expand library services. Despite many staff cuts, three presidents, and five different bosses during a six year period at Norman Regional Hospital, McKnight still managed to increase her staff, add new automation projects, and expand the physical size of her library! McKnight has developed and taught a number of courses and seminars for the Medical Library Association (MLA), Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, School of Library and Information Studies at the University of Oklahoma, and the University of North Texas. She is a Distinguished Member of MLA’s Academy of Health Information Professionals (AHIP) and Chair of the Hospital Libraries Section.
