The June MedLib’s Round is up & Call for Submissions.

14 06 2010

Yes, the latest edition of the Medlibs Round is up at EBM and Clinical Support Librarians@UCHC! Kathleen aka Creaky did a wonderful job compiling this round, with the main theme “service”.

Posts vary from a summary of the MLA-congress, to the first systematic review search of a librarian,  a friend’s request for help in finding information on breast cancer is, disclosure of conflicts of interest, collaborative librarianship through social media and (much) more. Read it all at Creaky’s blog!

Now it is only 2 weeks for the next deadline (Saturday, July the 3rd is the official deadline). So you better start writing and/or submit recent posts!

There is no theme, I will accept all relevant and good quality posts pertaining to medical librarianship, in the braodest sense of the word.

I would like to see posts about (for instance):

  • Social media (and medical information)
  • Searches, Search-engines & Databases (i.e. PubMed)
  • Reference Manager Systems
  • Library congresses (EAHIL?)
  • Web 2.0 tools, I-Phones, I-pads
  • Open Access, Publishing
  • Reliability of Information, Patient Information
  • Evidence Based Medicine

So NOT ONLY librarians, but also doctors and other healthcare workers, patients, pharma-people and scientists are invited to submit.

Submitting is easy, just submit the permalink (URL) of your post (at your blog) at the blog carnival here. For examples and Faqs see the MedLibs Round-ARCHIVE.

If you have no blog but would like to submit you are welcome to write a guest post at this blog.


I would also like to take the opportunity to ask if there are any Med- or Medlib-bloggers out there who would like to host the MEDLIBS round August, September, October or later this year!
A host for August is rather urgent as I will be on vacation the second half of July.

And if you didn’t fill in the poll below you still have the opportunity to do so. When we have a new name, the next step is to ask Robin of Survive the Journey to make a logo for us.
