Never been to Perth? Well now is your chance!

Health Libraries Australia (HLA) are holding their Professional Development Days for 2017 at Curtin University, Perth, WA, on Thursday 13 July (presentations) and Friday 14 July (workshops) 2017.
Health librarians are called upon to employ a range of skills when participating in systematic (and other) review projects. Increasingly, our professional skills are stretched beyond traditional searching of the bibliographic databases.  These Professional Development Days will focus on the theme of Reviews: Systematic and More.
On ​the ​Thursday ​we ​will ​hear ​from ​various ​librarians ​on ​topics ​relating ​to ​our ​theme ​Reviews: ​Systematic ​and ​More. ​There ​will ​also be ​a ​trade ​area ​to ​learn ​about ​the ​latest ​developments ​in ​the ​health ​library ​arena. ​This ​day ​will ​include ​morning ​tea ​and ​lunch.
On ​the ​Friday ​we ​will ​have ​a ​variety ​of ​different ​hands ​on ​workshops ​to ​choose ​from. ​Participants ​will ​be ​required ​to ​purchase ​their ​own ​meals ​and ​refreshments ​on ​the ​day. ​There ​are ​a ​number ​of ​eating ​places ​on ​campus.
When: Thursday 13 July (presentations) and Friday 14 July (workshops)
