What We Do
The Medical Informatics Section (MIS), established in 1988, provides a forum for education and communication among medical librarians, health professionals and other information sciences professionals. Although definitions vary, medical informatics focuses on broad-based computer applications involved in the transfer of information for health care and for the education, research, and administration that support it.
MIS section has a blog, an an email discussion list, and other resources, such as Self-Education on Medical Informatics, a special project of the Section. See <http://www.medinfo.mlanet.org/index.php> and<http://www.medinfo.mlanet.org/self_ed.php> for more details.
