New MedLib Blogs (Marks Funk and Rabnett)

Naturally, it is in the week I take a vacation from blogging that two really interesting new MedLib blogs come into existence. I subscribed to each as soon as it came to my attention.

Mark Funk (bio) has started the first-ever blog by an MLA president: Only Connect!. I’ve previously mentioned Mark’s enthusiasm for new technologies and I’m thrilled he’s blogging. No doubt you’ll want to subscribe to the feed.

Mark Rabnett (previously mentioned here and here) has started Shelved in the W’s: Working notes of a hospital librarian. Shelved in the W’s is off to an outstanding start and has quickly become one of my favorites.

One question for both Marks:

No MedLib Blog badge?

  1. Thanks for the mention, David. I’m glad to see you’re back in the saddle. As for the MedLib Blog badge, I support the idea completely, but I’ve been so busy writing that I haven’t yet got round to completing my set-up. HTML is still a bugbear for me. Any hints on where the code should be placed in Blogger, or does it matter? In any case, I’m glad to be part of the medlib blogging community.

  2. Hey Mark R.-

    I’ve seen MedLib bloggers insert it in a variety of sidebar locations, but my personal preference is for it to be “above the fold” (so that it is visible when the page loads without the user having to scroll down). If you like, I’ll walk you through the HTML via email or phone.

    Email me and let me know how I can help!



  3. OK, so I was able to add the badge. Now what? Do I need to “register” somehow at liswiki?

  4. Hi Mark F.-

    That’s great!

    Actually, LISWiki doesn’t require registration. I’ve already added Only Connect!, but you may wish to visit the page and click the edit tab if you would like to change the description. 🙂
