Mapping Clinical Librarians

At Leicester we often get asked about people coming to visit us, and about who else might be available to visit to talk to about clinical librarianship. Ruth Foxlee from York (via Oz!) was asking me about this very thing only this week.

As I've been thinking about the CL contacts database, and how best to set it up, I've also been thinking about how we could map CLs so we can see at a glance where other CLs are working. I think I might have a working map here: CL Google map but I'm not totally sure I've made it work. I've been experimenting with Frappr too, but it seemed to have a mind of its own.

If anyone has any better solutions, please let me know! And if it does work, I hope you add yourselves.


  1. Had fun navigating the map and ended up in Norway not a bad thing

  2. Oh dear!

    Apologies to anyone struggling to make it work.

    What you need to do is log into Google, then select "edit" and then use the maker on the top left hand side of the map. Drag & drop it to your location & then fill the box with your details if you want to add them.
