NLM, the world's largest biomedical library, has launched a new Facebook fan page to share news, information, fun facts, and important links with interested readers. NLM develops some of the world's largest and most respected electronic information services and delivers trillions of bytes of data to millions of users daily. It also has a vast collection of more than 12 million items, including about 20,000 contemporary journals from around the world and historical holdings back to the 11th century.
The new Facebook page will post information about all aspects of the Library. Fans will be among the first to know about the latest NLM developments; receive notifications on conferences, guest speakers, and other events; and be guided to the vast and various research resources NLM has to offer. They can also read the latest issues of NLM's popular consumer magazine, NIH MedlinePlus, and its Spanish/English-language counterpart, NIH MedlinePlus Salud. Viewers can browse through historical images and contribute to discussions on future projects, all via their favorite social networking site.
