Hashtags for the Meeting

If you’re using Twitter to share your observations during the meeting, or want to follow along with what people are thinking in real time, you may want to be aware of these hashtags:

#mlanet14 – the overall hashtag for the meeting, to be used in any/all tweets

#mlaemts – for the Educational Media & Technologies Section business meeting, Monday, May 19 at 4:30 pm

#mlattt – for Top Technology Trends VII (Tech Trends), Tuesday, May 20 from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm

#nlmtheater – for updates from and about NLM Theater sessions and the resources/changes presented there

And some unofficial, fun activities at MLA:

#mlanet14bingo – for the card game being organized by @mascher to help us meet new people at MLA. Tweet a pic of your completed BINGO card with the hashtag #mlanet14bingo to win. “Complete” in this case means your full card is completed, not just one line.

#drinkingsig – “unofficial and completely unsanctioned,” the rules are that “any time two or more MLA members are together and drinking (even water), it constitutes a #drinkingsig meet up.” When you purchase a $5 #drinkingsig button from @LaMedBoheme73, proceeds go to the MLA Scholarship Fund.

You do not need a Twitter account to follow along with what people are posting with these hashtags, simply click on the links above or search Twitter for the tags.

If you’re aware of other hashtags for various events and programming during MLA ’14, leave them in the comments!

How Do I Leave a Comment on This Thing?

A couple of people have asked how to leave comments on this blog, as comments for an individual post don’t show on the main page and it’s not necessarily obvious that they’re an option.

To leave a comment, you need to be in the full post. So while you might be able to read the whole “Parks and Gardens in Chicago” post on the blog homepage without clicking on anything, to comment and view other comments you need to click on the either the post title at the top, or the comments link at the end of the post.

MEDLIB POST EXAMPLE

Once you do so, you’ll see a comment form where you will add your information and comment:

medlibs comment form

Please do use the comments to ask questions or add your thoughts and observations about events and issues reported on during the meeting.
