In 1978 I was hired by St. Mary's General Hospital in time to meet JCAH
accreditation.  Shortly thereafter I was visited by a volunteer HSLIC
mentor, who spent a day teaching me how to manually fill out a 5-part paper
interlibrary loan form and how to choose which libraries to send it to
(remember MULS?), how to use the paper issues of Index Medicus I had on the
shelves, and how libraries operated within hospitals - the stuff you don't
learn in library school.  That was the start of my 40-year relationship
with HSLIC, and I will be forever grateful for the practical skills and the
collegiality everyone provided.  I want to say thanks to every HSLIC member
I've ever worked with - it's been quite the ride!
