Last week, we learned through this listserv that a *#medlibs* twitter 
chat (more on what a twitter chat is below) had been
held discussing emergency preparedness for libraries.  We contacted the 
moderator for the weekly #medlibs twitter chat
and they are going to dedicate this week's chat to meeting the health 
information needs of those we serve -- health care
professionals, emergency responders and community organizations alike.
See the announcement at 

For those of you new to Twitter chats, here is a guide to what they are 
and how to participate_:
You will have to have a Twitter account because
you need to log-in even if all you want to do is "follow" the chat.  
This guide provides ideas of different tools you can use
to follow that chat.

We hope you join in the chat on *Thursday, **November 8* at *9 pm* 
Eastern time.  This is a great group to start out with as a
newbie, or to interact with time and time again.
