Welcome to the North Atlantic Health Sciences Libraries 2022 Conference!
Turning the Tide is a phrase that generally means a dramatic reversal is taking place. The ocean tide is a powerful force, often impossible to resist, and beyond the strength of humans to turn back. That is why turning the tide is a metaphor for a complete reversal.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow described the turn of the tide as “the lowest ebb.” Many of us were at our lowest point in the last two years, feeling isolated, disconnected, and at times pessimistic. But with widespread vaccination stemming the onslaught of the COVID-19 virus, we feel as though life is turning around. We can gather again, visit loved ones and friends, and hold meetings in person. We are coming back winners, changing direction and going forward. We have the opportunity to do this together, as we gather in Portland, ME for this year’s North Atlantic Health Sciences Libraries (NAHSL) Conference November 6-8, 2022.
