June 2015 Meeting

posted Sep 4, 2015, 11:05 AM by Heather Brown

From Rose Wilson:

Hello ICON members!

We have our September 11th meeting coming up next week at the UNO Criss Library, for a tour of the new MakerSpace starting at 2:30. We’ll be meeting in Classroom 249 for our business meeting, with the tour at the end. Please note the meeting start time is 2:30. The classroom is on the main level in the library.

We also have visitor parking permits issued by UNO (sent to listserv), for those that RSVP’ed to Monica. Below is further parking information from Amy Schindler at UNO:

A map of parking lots on campus is available at http://www.unomaha.edu/maps/docs/uno-parking-map-2014-06.pdf . The library is building 9. Anyone with a handicap tag may park in handicap spots in the lot to the east of the library (lot E or D). Lot M south of the library is the closest parking lot to the library for all others. If Lot M is full (it is a Friday afternoon, so the odds are about 50-50), the next closest lot most likely to have available spaces is lot G next to the Welcome Center. 

Info about  reciprocal parking permits  from Amy:

Reciprocal Permit

All valid parking permits issued by other University of Nebraska system campuses (UNK, UNL and UNMC) will be honored in select lots on UNO campuses.

Vehicles displaying valid UNK, UNL and UNMC Faculty/Staff Permits are allowed to park in UNO Faculty/Staff surface parking lots.

Vehicles displaying valid UNK, UNL and UNMC Student Permits are allowed to park in:

  • Lot H, First Christian Church Lot and St. Margaret Mary Lot on the Dodge Campus 
  • Lots 9 and 14 on Pacific Campus
  • Lot 20 on Center Campus
  • Lot 26 on Center Campus Arena
  • This restriction is from 7:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M., Monday through Friday. After 7:00 P.M. all University of Nebraska permits are valid in all appropriate lots.

Reciprocal permits are not valid at the meters from 7:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M.

The meeting’s agenda and the June minutes will be posted. Looking forward to the tour next week!

Join the speakers for this program on marketing and advocacy as they cover: communicating the value of libraries, developing a marketing plan and engaging users and stakeholders, understanding the value of branding and campaigns, using tools, tips and tricks to make the most of your time, determining if social media fits in, determining if a plan is working and preventing lost opportunities

Beyond the Search I: Protocol Development and Methodology for Systematic Reviews Webinar



Oct. 22, 2014

1:00-2:30 CT

While the literature search is likely to be the main responsibility of information professionals involved in systematic review projects, there are other aspects of these projects that would benefit from our input. In this first of two webinars, the presenters will outline the processes and tools for developing a systematic review protocol and then translating the protocol into a publishable search methodology. The session will focus on best practices and standards (including PRISMA, Cochrane, and Institute of Medicine), communication with team members, and appropriate reporting of methodology.

September Meeting

Our September ICON meeting is fast approaching.  We will be meeting September 5 at 2:00 o’clock at the VA Library in the employee conference room.

A huge thank you to Monica Rogers who has made it possible for us to host a great program. Barb Jones will be conducting a ‘Calculating Your Value’ webinar. Not only will it provide great information, but you can also earn MLA CE credits.  In order to get the most out of the program, please bring past annual reports or any statistical data you have.  Also, if you have a laptop, please bring it to ensure we have enough computers for everyone.


Enter the main entrance, you’ll see the coffee shop. From the coffee shop head straight south towards the main elevators. Turn left at the wall (near Release of Information office) then turn right at the next wall (near Patient Advocate Office) and follow the corridor past elevates through the double doors.

March 2014 Meeting

posted Feb 25, 2014, 7:43 AM by Heather Brown

Hello all,

Who’s ready for Spring!? 

I look forward to seeing everyone at the March 7th meeting. There has been a meeting location change. We will no longer be meeting at the College of Saint Mary’s. Instead we will meet at Bergan Mercy Medical Center located at 7500 Mercy Road at 2:00 PM.  The location change was to bring you a great program.  Cindy Perkins and Jim Bothmer will present,  Creighton HSL and ACH Library: Boldly going where no one else has gone before! I hope everyone can make it.

Directions to the Bergan Mercy Library:

If those attending park in the visitors lot in front of the hospital, you come in the Maternity door and turn left. That leads right to the library and the meeting room is next door. If you park in the garage, come in those doors and turn right and walk down the walkway (going east). When you come to the Maternity front door, turn right and there is the library.

Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Anne K. Heimann, Senior Member

Hello Everyone,

The ICON 4th Quarterly Business Meeting will be held on Friday, Dec. 13th at the Immanuel Medical Center Library at 2:00pm. This will be followed by our annual Holiday Celebration. If you are planning to attend, please RSVP to me no later than December 8th so we have an accurate head count for food and gifts. Also, this would be a good chance to join ICON or renew your membership. The yearly dues are $10.00 for an individual and can be paid via cash or check.

We also will be electing a new Freshman Member to serve on the ICON Board so if you are interested in being on the ballot, please let me know prior to the meeting. It is a three year commitment and a great opportunity to network and serve in our local library community.

Directions : once you are on the Immanuel Campus head to the northeast corner of the campus.

The library is located in the Conference Center and The Conference Center is marked on the directional signs and has a large sign over the door that says Conference Center.

There is parking right outside the Conference Center door. 

Thanks to Joy Winkler for hosting!

Hope to see you there,
