National Library of Medicine is Tweeting

Twitter

News Feed Will Link to the Latest on Health IT, Online Resources and Much More

The National Library of Medicine (NLM), a longtime leader in harnessing information technology to improve the public health, announces the creation of a Twitter feed, to spread news, information and important links primarily to members of the news media — but you may want to follow them, too. The feed may be found on Twitter at nlm_newsroom.

NLM is a component of the National Institutes of Health and the provider of PubMed (and many other information resources).

“We recognize that social media sites are an important and essential way to further enhance the role of NLM in the 21st century,” observed NLM Director Donald A.B. Lindberg, MD. “The public, and journalists in particular, are turning to outlets such as Twitter as gateways to understanding and further exploration.”
