Abstract

Professionals using the Internet have various tools with which to capture and share information. Email discussion lists, despite their age, are still one of the main applications that telematic networks use for information to be shared in the social media field. They have not lost their validity even though the arrival of numerous applications associated with other types of social media, such as social networks, microblogging networks, wikis, etc., was often thought to augur their demise. Also, the new culture of Knowledge management, in which people share data, knowledge, and experiences, has, with its technological bases, become an indispensable tool for human interaction. This paper presents the results of a study applied to the medical sector which surveyed the MEDLIB-L discussion list users - specialists in medical information. The primary aim was to determine the usefulness of the various tools they use (social media, literature alert systems, syndication RSS, search engine alerts, new content trackers) to capture and share information of interest and to serve as means of training and learning. A further aim was to determine the quality and usefulness of the messages sent by the professionals of information management in medicine to the list and the usefulness of its message archiving system.
