From the GMR: Knowledge Management workshop to be held in Salt Lake City

Some of you may remember the Knowledge Management Workshop offered in November 2007 in Chicago. Lorri Zipperer is doing a revised version in the Midcontinental Region in April. This workshop is open to participants nationwide. See below for a description.
The National Network of Libraries of Medicine MidContinental Region is sponsoring a workshop on Knowledge Management to be held in Salt Lake City, Utah on April 16-17. Participants of this workshop must attend as a team of two. The teams must include a hospital librarian and a professional from another department in the same institution. The goal of the workshop is for each team to explore the potential of knowledge management in the hospital setting, and to develop and implement a program in their institution.
In addition to the April 16-17, 2009 workshop, there will be required readings, two required online pre-workshop sessions and post-workshop communication sessions. These pre-workshop sessions will be held on March 9 and April 7 on Adobe Connect. The post-workshop sessions will be scheduled at a later date.
Cost of the workshop is $35: this includes one lunch and all break refreshments. This workshop is open to participants nationwide; however preference will be given to members of the MidContinental Region. The first 2 teams of MidContinental Region network members accepted for the workshop will have their travel expenses paid. Those 2 teams will be responsible to attend all sessions and either present their project within 18 months of the session or publish their work in a MidContinental Region publication.
