The National Library of Medicine debuted a Facebook fan page March 1st. While I knew about it due to all my friends on Facebook hopping on board, the announcement about the page was sent via a traditional listserv (which I’m not on) when it launched but didn’t make it to the web-based NLM Technical Bulletin (which I have an RSS subscription to) until 9 days later. Why such a delay instead of announcing in both communication channels at once?
The stated goal of the page is “to share news, information, fun facts and important links with interested readers.”
The moderator of the page replied to a user’s question about the NLM Style Guide thus helping others who may have the same question about it too. Way to go and keep up the responsiveness to your fans, NLM!
