The Ruth Lilly Medical Library (RLML) is the largest medical library in the state of Indiana with eight full-time faculty librarians, a Clinical Informationist, a Library Systems Analyst, and nine additional staff members assisting with library operations. The main users the RLML primarily serves are the students, staff and faculty of the Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM). In addition to the IUSM, the library also serves eight Indiana University campuses across the state, the IU Health Hospital Network, the greater Indianapolis community, and communities throughout the entire state of Indiana. The RLML uses a variety of online tools for marketing. The library publishes its own online library newsletter and also sends announcements to the IUSM student-run online newsletter. Additionally the library actively uses social media (Facebook and Twitter) to post announcements, highlight resources, and promote events and activities to users. The library recently purchased its own electronic sign, located across from the circulation desk, and is similarly able to post various announcements to users who may not visit our social media pages. Furthermore, the library is able to share these announcements with an internal IUSM news feed and promote events and resources across campus. The library also hosts a blog on its main website and includes a slide show with additional updates on library resources and events. Lastly, the library markets its resources to the IUSM community
