#MDMLG hashtag registered on
I've registered the #MDMLG hashtag on, which is a (fantastic) resource for social media in healthcare. keeps a database of healthcare related 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 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

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.
