The U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM) is collecting and archiving blogs of patients and health care professionals as part of a "Health and Medicine Blogs" collection. Blog authors include physicians, medical students, nurses, and others in health professions in various stages of their careers. NLM began this collection in June, 2011 as part of an overall effort to gain a practical understanding of Web archiving processes and how this activity could expand the Library’s collecting strategy."
