Becker Blogs – Keeping the Medical School Community Informed
Becker Medical Library publishes several blogs for the Washington University School of Medicine community. Blogging provides another way we communicate with our users to promote library services and programs, publish news items of interest to segments of our user community, add librarian commentary, and provide a forum for discussion and comments from our users.
The Becker blogs are written and maintained by Becker Medical Library personnel. The dynamic nature of blogs allows easy and frequent updating, providing a flexible format by which the staff can deliver news and information to users. All Becker blogs allow users to subscribe via RSS feeds (or email alerts) so that you can be alerted when new items are posted.
We invite you to visit:
- Bioinformatics@Becker – presenting information about classes, programs and initiatives from the Bioinformatics team at Becker Medical Library. Editor Kristi Holmes, PhD, posts items that cover a range of topics related to bioinformatics, biochemistry, genomics, and resources aimed at biological and biomedical science professionals.
- Scholarly Communications Update – informing faculty, scientists and students of the latest news on issues related to Scholarly Communications – author rights, public access mandates, economics of scholarly resources, new models of publishing, and preservation of intellectual assets. The blog is edited by Scholarly Communications specialist Cathy Sarli.
