Happy Anniversary to the Libraries’ Blog

Today is the 2nd anniversary of the LSUHSC New Orleans Libraries’ Blog. (No need for gifts, but the traditional gift is cotton and the modern gift is china.) In the last 2 years, we have published 452 posts which is a new post approximately every 1.6 days. We have had 8 authors and over 50 categories. Is there a subject that we’ver overlooked? Or something exciting/interesting/odd that you want us to focus on? Please don’t hesitate to let us know. We’re looking forward to great year 3. Thanks to all the Library Staff who have contributed.
