Laurel Egan tells me she has been running a small medical library for fifteen years and is now earning her MLIS. A part of that process is taking LS 590 with Dr. Steven MacCall at the University of Alabama, and part of LS 590 is a requirement to blog. Laurel says she doesn’t take to the technology easily, but she’s worked out how to add the MedLib Blog badge to her sidebar, so it seems to me that she’s off to a running start. Here’s hoping she keeps blogging after she finishes the course.
(I’m fond of Laurel’s blogroll, too.)
Jane Blumenthal is the director of Health Sciences Libraries at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, and has just kicked off her new blog, Health, Science, & Libraries, on the same week as her first foray into Second Life.
Why is David so into this badgey stuff?
Previously, I’ve noted the following blogs that display the MedLib Blog badge in their sidebars:
- Clinical Evidence, Searching Tidbits, and Other Minutiae
- JMLA Case Studies in Health Sciences Librarianship
- Librarians’ Rx
- MGAS News
- Musings of a Medical Librarian Maven
- Professional Notes
- UBC Physio Info-blog
- Women’s Health News
If I’ve missed the badge on your blog or if you’ve just added it, please let me know so I can link to you from here.
Why would I want to add the badge to my blog?
The badge links back to the masterlist of MedLib blogs to indicate the blog’s membership in the growing community (and sense of community) of MedLib blogs(/bloggers). (This should serve also as a reminder to add yourself to this masterlist, if appropriate.)
To add this badge to your own blog, just copy and paste this code:
