Moderator Deborah Blecic will convene this year’s hosted but no holds barred Lively Lunch session. She will provide a few general remarks and will highlight why this year’s three presentations are all relevant to this year’s conference theme. Time will be left for lively discussion between speakers and session attendees.

After a few words of greeting by the hosts, Rittenhouse Book Distributors, Inc., Ramune Kubilius will provide a brief (traditional) annual update of interesting and noteworthy trends in the health publishing and health information sectors that occurred or were noticed since the 2015 conference.

David Parker and Taney Shondel of Alexander Street will share some insights on providing online medical / health video content, including some inherent challenges and opportunities provided by this medium.

A few years ago, it could be argued that “more is better”, but in times of tightened collection budgeting, libraries often need to make strategic collection decisions. G. Randall Watts will share highlights of “Life After “The Big Deal” (first presented in a 2016 Medical Library Association (MLA) conference poster presentation).

Health professional education is becoming increasingly interdisciplinary. How can libraries anticipate and address the information and resource needs for the curricula of these programs? Elizabeth Hinton and Susan Clark will share highlights of “Designing a Library Resource Module for an Interprofessional Curriculum” (highlighting their experience, first described in a 2016 MLA conference poster).
