Hi Craig - I just signed up for this free webinar on searching social

People use social media tools like Facebook for personal projects:
sharing photos or connecting with friends. But did you know that you can
find great information about business, industry and careers using tools
like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter? 

Social media can be a critical resource for library staff. Students,
career changers, job hunters, and business people can find out about
industries and companies, connect with important people, and promote
themselves to potential employers and customers. 

Learn some of the basic ways to leverage social media, whether you are
an information professional, consultant, teacher, or someone using it
for your own personal and career pursuits. 

Scott Brown loves social networking. An experienced librarian, Scott is
currently the owner of Social Information Group
(, an independent information
practice focused on the effective use of social networking tools for
sharing and finding information. You can reach Scott at

Subject: searching medical/hospital/health info blogs

Dear Colleagues,


Does anyone have pointers on searching health information/medical blogs?
Is there a special search engine or a way to tweak Google (or another
search engine) to search only blogs?


I'm seeking information on 2 medical technology companies, and my patron
would like to include blog "chatter" about the companies.


Thank you in advance for any pointers you can share.
