I’m slowly getting caught up on all the stuff (i.e. student papers) that accumulated while I was at the conference, so now have a bit of time to write about the AAHM meeting. Today’s entry is on the women historian’s breakfast. We started off with a presenation by John Erlen on the European Union Library/Archives at the Hillman Library at the University of Pittsburgh. This looks like a pretty neat, albeit immense source. There appears to be loads of materials on health related topics. The only question is — how to get at what you want? There appears to be no collection guide (or really much information on the library website). The contact person is Dr. Phil Wilkin, firstname.lastname@example.org
Monica Green suggested setting up a mentoring network, similar to those organized by other professional organizations to which she belongs.
We then did our usual round of introductions, celebrations of accomplishments, consoling for trials and tribulations.
