I’m currently in Seattle for the Medical Library Association annual conference.  Like last year, I’m an official blogger but this year I’m blogging about all the early morning activities.  I’ll be reposting my daily posts here so you can keep up with what’s going on.

Good morning MLAers!  This post comes to you from 30,000 feet, courtesy of Delta’s WiFi.  I’m Elizabeth Laera, 2nd time MLA attendee and solo hospital librarian from Birmingham, AL, and your “Grounds Crew” blogger.

It’s my pleasure to bring you reports on all early morning activities, from tomorrow’s walk to Sunrise seminars to where the shortest coffee line is in the area.  Now I’m not usually much of a morning person, but I wanted to get as much out of this trip as possible, so I’m going to fake early morning cheerfulness.  All in the line of duty. :)

I hope everyone gets a good night’s sleep tonight because tomorrow starts bright and early!  Here’s a look at what’s on tomorrow’s early morning schedule:

24th Annual YBP Health Walk (you might know it as the Major’s Walk) – 6:30 – meet up in the Hyatt Olive 8 lobby

Sunrise Yoga – 6:30 – WSCC, room 206 – see Lisa’s post for more information

New Members/First-Time Attendee Program and Breakfast (ticketed event) – 7:00 – WSCC, room 4C 1/2 – I went to this last year and it’s a great way to meet some new people and try to figure out what’s going on. My advice: get there early so you can get a good seat!

Sunrise Seminars:
Building the Next-Generation Library: Digital Tools and Services for Research Impact – 7:00 – WSCC, room 604

Evidence-Based Nursing and Allied Health Resources: Improve Patient Outcomes(sponsored by EBSCO) – 7:00 – WSCC, room 611

A Librarian’s Guide to Implementing Evidence (sponsored by Ovid) – 7:00 – WSCC, room 201

Where are you headed in the morning? I’ll be at the Health Walk!  If you have any great breakfast suggestions, fun morning activities, or any ideas, please leave them in the comments or tweet them to me @LibrarianLizy!
