Perhaps They Need a Medical Librarian

The Well-Timed Period has an interesting critique of both Reuters's and Congress's understanding of the recent deaths thought to be linked to medical abortion.

The blogger has also taken the NIH to task (background info here and here) for having potentially misleading information on emergency contraception in their page on ectopic pregnancy. The NIH has a whole army of medical librarians, but the content in question comes from A.D.A.M., and non-governmental agency. Feedback can be submitted to the A.D.A.M. editorial team here.

PS: some of you may be aware that I've been finishing up my Masters in Library and Information Science (with an emphasis on medical librarianship). As of now, I'm done with all of my homework, and will be An Official Librarian at the end of this month. Also, if any of you will be at the MLA conference in Phoenix and want to meet up, let me know in the comments?
