Nature Network for innovative librarians

Via Medinfo I learned about a new scientific networking platform called Nature Networks. I registered and formed a new group: Innovative Library.

First topic: “Why networking?

Maybe this could be the only topic in this group. The simple question is: Should librarians network for scientific reasons?

To me, the library and information sciences always seemed to be very concentrated on national issues. International discussion or even collaboration does not really take place.

Maybe networking tools and platforms like Nature Network could establish a new and innovative culture of sharing and discussion?

I guess it’s worth a try.
