For the last several Thursdays, people interested in medical librarianship issues have gotten together on Twitter to discuss topics and voice their thoughts and opinions. It is an interesting bunch of people, not all are medical librarians, but all are interested in various aspects of medical information.
The discussion is every Thursday at 9pm est. It is rather informal as people are tweeting and following the discussion over a glass of wine, while getting kids to bed, or making dinner. But as informal as it is, it is also very interesting. There was a great discussion about take home points from the MLA meeting, escience and what it really means people, and a free range discussion about iPads, residents, etc. Nikki Dettmar has written a nice post with word cloud images detailing the last few chats. She also has a link to the chat transcripts.
So if you are interested, I invite you to hop on Twitter tomorrow at 9pm est and follow the hashtag #medlibs. Can’t make it this Thursday? No worries, we seem to be meeting on Twitter every Thursday. So try next week.
