     Please find us and follow along at detroitmedicallibrarygroup (no spaces). 

    Unfortunately, the username MDMLG was already taken, and detroitmedicallibrarygroup used the maximum number of characters allotted so Metropolitan, Metro, even M. could not be included.  

    If anyone has any content, upcoming webinars, photos or anything else they are willing to share, please email them to Michelle Rau at mrau@wayne.edu. If possible, please include a little background information or perhaps a funny story.
