MEDLIBs ROUND 1.4 ànd Call for Submissions!

25 06 2009

The fourth MedLibs round, with a selection of superb posts in the field of Medical Librarianship, is up at Eagle Dawg blog, the blog of Nicole (Nikki) Dettmar.

Nikki has chosen  the theme PubMed, which is one of several databases in the the National Library of Medicine’s (NLM) Entrez life sciences search engine developed by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), and third party functionalities.
You can read the compilation here. *

Since there have been a few delays in publishing, in part because there were too few submissions on the subject, we’re now running short in time for the next issue, which is due July 7th. Nevertheless, I would like to try to adhere to this scheme.

Thus, you’re invited to submit your blogpost the coming week.

  • Submission deadline: July 4th (and I may accept July 5th in the morning)
  • NO theme, as long as it is related to medical librarianship, medical information retrieval etc.
  • Submission is open to librarians, doctors, students, scientists and health care workers (so no restrictions)
  • Submit the permalink of your post (already written on your blog) here at the Blog Carnival.
  • (See here for the Announcement. The FAQs can be found here and  the Archive  here.

I’m pleased to announce that we also have a host for August: Flavio Guzmán of Pharmamotion has offered to host the MedLibs Round on his blog. This is memorable, because it will be the first (and I hope not the last) time that a MD will host this Medical-Library-related blog carnival.

There are still vacancies for September, October and November. Please let me know if you would like to host a future edition. We really need you to make the best out of this blog carnival!


* You can await a contribution on this blog as well. I was not able to finish it due to congresses and work-related deadlines.
