Vote for a Medical Librarian in the Medgadget Medical Blog Awards
Voting for Medgadget’s 2007 Medical Weblog Awards is in progress, ending at midnight Pacific time this Sunday, January 20. Among the nominees is David Rothman, medical librarian (in training) and blogger about all manner of medicine and health-related webgeekery.
[Update: I should have noted that davidrothman.net is a finalist in the Best Medical Technologies/Informatics Weblog category]
Of the 34 nominees selected by the awards committee from many more nominations, David is the only medlib in the bunch. For you nerds, 2.9% of the Medgadget-selected blogs are authored by a medical librarian, whereas at least 6% of the eDrugSearch top 100 medical blogs have a medlib as an author. I’d tell you to vote for a nurse-blogger in one of the categories while you’re there, as they are much more dramatically underrepresented among the finalists, but I couldn’t find one. Hmph.
While you’re in a voting mood, you might as well go vote for me in the health blog category of the Blogger’s Choice Awards. 😉
