    Register Now for MLA Webinar on Instructional Videos
    The Professional Development Committee has received funding from the NN/LM GMR to host the MLA webinar, “Cheap, Fast, and Good: Instructional Videos and Open Educational Resources” on November 8.

    Registration: To register, please complete the online registration form to view the recording (good 180 days past November 8). We will not be hosting a live viewing of the webinar at a particular library.

    If you have any trouble accessing the form, please email me at swanberg@oakland.edu and we’ll get you registered.

    As with the previous MLA webinars this year, we received GMR funding for a license that includes 25 MLA access codes that allow individuals to log-in to their MEDLIB-ED account, watch the live webinar or recording, complete the evaluation, and claim CE certificates.

    As a result, access codes will be provided on a first come, first served basis to the first 25 registrants. If multiple registrants from the same institution register, you may be asked to pair up to view the webinar at your site. As this is sponsored by MDMLG, our members will receive priority. Registration will open up to the rest of MHSLA on Wednesday, October 25, so register ASAP!

    If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us!

    Thanks!

    #MDMLG hashtag registered on symplur.com
    I've registered the #MDMLG hashtag on symplur.com, which is a (fantastic) resource for social media in healthcare. Symplur.com keeps a database of healthcare related hashtags:
    http://www.symplur.com/healthcare-hashtags/

    This is a great place to find healthcare hashtags that are currently trending as well as various hashtags in use for various healthcare topics, and after the sessions on Twitter at today's meeting, we decided it would be a great idea to register #MDMLG as our very own hashtag.

    However, for symplur.com to register this hashtag, they need to confirm that it is a hashtag currently in use. Please take a moment to log into Twitter and post a tweet using the #MDMLG hashtag. If you were at today's meeting, post a comment about the sessions. Or, perhaps post a link to an article or page that you think members might be interested in. Or search #MDMLG to see some of the tweets already posted and reply with your own comments (just make sure to include #MDMLG in your reply).

    Also, if you were not able to log on for tonight's #medlibs meeting (every Thursday at 9pm), the transcript is available on symplur at

    http://bit.ly/ZE3GUO

    There was some great conversation with an embedded librarian who rides with ambulance crews to find their medical research needs and then afterwards provides them with relevant literature searches.

    Cheers!
