The Carnival is Coming to Town!
A blog carnival is periodic roundup of quality blog posts from a particular field of interest. Bloggers take turns hosting the carnival. I am happy to announce that on March 10, the Medlib’s Round blog carnival– a roundup of the month’s best posts from the field of medical librarianship– will be hosted here at Dragonfly. Keep reading to learn more and to find out how you can participate.
Medlib’s Round is the brainchild of Laika Spoetnik, a medical librarian and blogger in the Netherlands. Here’s how it works:
- Laika, the organizer, has established the carnival at http://blogcarnival.com/ and is maintaining schedule for where and when the carnival will be hosted.
- Each month, the host chooses a theme. This month our theme will be “Enhancing access to health information for health professionals and the public.” This also happens to be the goal of the U.S. National Network of Libraries of Medicine, and no, it’s not a coincidence!
- Members of the community are invited to submit links to quality blog posts matching the theme. This is your invitation. To submit a link, use this form (preferred) or email the host before the deadline. The deadline for this month is March 8.
As your host, I will compile the submitted posts and present them to you with my commentary on March 10. Are you excited about blogging and nominating posts? I hope so! Are you interested in hosting a future edition of Medlib’s Round? Laika would like to hear from you. You will find many options for contacting her on her blog.
Here is the inaugural edition of Medlib’s Round, posted last month.
And here are some other blog carnivals that may interest you:
- Medical Grand Rounds – “a weekly rotating carnival of the best of the medical blogosphere” (most recent edition here)
- Health Wonk Review - “a biweekly compendium of the best of the health policy blogs.”
I look forward to enjoying the carnival with you next week.
