BLOSSOM Symposium Recordings and Wrap Up

Posted by on April 14th, 2021 Posted in: Conferences and Meetings


BLOSSOM: Building Life-long Opportunities for Strength, Self-Care, Outlook, Morale, and Mindfulness, a free virtual symposium, sponsored by NNLM, for library staff focused on their health and wellness took place over three days, March 24, 25, and 26. The virtual symposium brought together experts on morale, invisible services, vocational awe, burnout, and self-care in libraries. The symposium provided library staff at all levels, including management, with key takeaways to improve library staff health and wellness.

Over 6,000 people registered for the event, and almost 3,000 attended live. Those attending the event live could receive eight continuing education credits from the Medical Library Association (MLA).

Recordings on the original symposium site have been viewed hundreds of times. Now the recordings are available, without registration, on the NNLM YouTube channel. Each recording provides CE from MLA. If you would like to CE, please email the National Training Office at nto@utah.edu.
