Blogadillo: News From the National Network of Libraries of Medicine South Central Region
Welcome to Blogadillo, http://nnlm.gov/scr/blog/ the renamed blog of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, South Central Region.In February 2005, the NN/LM SCR office transitioned from a traditional newsletter to a blog, or weblog, and it retained the established Network News name that has been in place since the Houston Academy of Medicine-Texas Medical Center Library was awarded the RML Contract in May 1991.
With the new 2006-2011 RML Contract award, we felt it was time for a name change. Also, we heard from many of you over the years that Network News was often confused with National Network, the newsletter for the Hospital Libraries Section of the Medical Library Association.
In the Winter 2006, we enlisted the assistance of Network members to help rename the blog and we received several entries. Congratulations to Richard Wood, Executive Director of Libraries, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Libraries of the Health Sciences, Lubbock TX for submitting the winning entry!
It was no surprise that many of the entries included some form of “armadillo” in the title. The armadillo has become synonymous with South Central Chapter/Medical Library Association (SCC/MLA). We are fortunate that our MLA chapter and NN/LM Region share the exact five state geographical designation.
Blogadillo will feature news and articles on topics of interest to members of the SCR. Archived 2001-2005 issues of the Network News newsletter and blog are available in our newsletter archive: http://nnlm.gov/scr/services/nnarchives.html
