MDMLG on Social Media

 MDMLG is now on Instagram!

 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. 

All feedback and suggestions are welcome.

    MDMLG History Web Site

    Have you ever wondered who the previous MDMLG presidents are?  Looking for the name of a speaker at one of our previous meetings?  Need to know the exact name and date of a MDMLG CE class for your CV or AHIP application?

    The answers to all of these questions (and more!) can be found on the MDMLG History web page.  http://www.mdmlg.org/mdmlg-history.htm

    We are celebrating the 20-year anniversary of our MDMLG web site this year!  The site began in 1999, and most of our information (executive board, committee rosters, meeting minutes, treasurer reports, etc.) date back to 1999.  The Nominating Committee slates and election results go back to 1970.  And the Newsletter index dates back to 1989. 

    Take a walk back through MDMLG history.  You’ll come across names of people that you haven’t thought about in years.  And it’s always fun to look at old photos –

    MDMLG Webmaster
