Happy Christmas from the LIHNN Groups

"This was my first Christmas Study Day and it was wonderful meeting new people and seeing what others are up to in their libraries."

"Definitely recommending some of the initiatives we saw during the presentations"

"Create a 'tweet bank' , investigate PIKTOCHART and bring the idea of Library Jargon busters to our next team meeting for discussion"

"Was great to hear about what other people are doing- lots of exciting new stuff coming for health libs"

"I will be mindful of Mary Hill's advice that the right timing and location is needed for something to be successful"
