First, let me say thanks to Michelle Ohnstad for setting up this blog so we can quckly communicate any news or announcements.
I would like to take this opportunity to announce that I have won a service award. Sharp Healthcare has an award and recognition system entitled CORE awards. CORE stands for Center of Recognized Excellence. I have won an award for excellent service for my support of evidence based medicine through my research and membership on the Nursing Research Council.
Though I feel a bit funny tooting my own horn here, I think it is important for each of us to be recognized. Furthermore, I would like to encourage others to make such announcements in the future. I am quite confident that we will have many opportunities to for "horn tooting" due to the high caliber of librarians I have come to know.
