RA Information Library

Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy is pleased to announce the launch of the RA Information Library!

In the handful of years in which I have lived with rheumatoid arthritis, some of the most useful advice and helpful information that I have received has come from others who are also living with rheumatoid arthritis. While I appreciate the wide variety of clinical information that is currently already, for me – at least – nothing is quite a useful as the experiences I have been able to share with others who also live with rheumatoid arthritis.

This RA Information Library is a community site that will allow the voices of all of us to be heard. Whether you’re looking for information, want to share some information or advice, have a question to ask, or can answer somebody’s question – this is the place to go.

RA Information Library

Launching this RA Information Library is my humble attempt at establishing one convenient location where we can share information about rheumatoid arthritis and other related diseases. The library as easy to use – all you have to do is browse by topic.

I hope you find this RA Information Library useful! I look forward to sharing more in the future, and I can’t wait to see what others have to contribute.

How To Use

The RA Information Library can be accessed either through the corresponding tab on the upper menu, or at www.rheumatoidarthritisguy.com/library/.

The library home page displays a list of available binders. Click on a binder, and you will see the info sheets that it holds. Once you open an info sheet, you will be able to read information, questions, and answers related to that topic.

In order to add comments in the RA Information Library, you must create an account and be logged in. (No account/log in is required to read the RA Information Library, or to comment on the other parts of the blog.)

Account/Log In

Please find the “My Account” section at the top of the far-right side column. From here, you can register for a new account, log in to an existing account, change your profile, and receive a temporary password in case you forget your current password.

Registration is easy and takes only a minute. All you need is a username and a valid email address. A temporary password will be sent to the email address you provide. Once you log in, you will be able to change your password.

Latest Updates and Subscriptions

The library home page displays a list of the ten most recently updated info sheets. You can use this to find the most recent comments that have been added to the RA Information Library.

Below each binder and info sheet is a RSS feed link, which can be used to subscribe to certain topics via your favorite RSS reader.

*****

I’ll meet you in the RA Information Library! Please let me know if you have any questions.

Stay tuned…for the next adventure of Rheumatoid Arthritis Guy!

    Denise, thanks!

    Vicki, please feel free to share with your rheumatologist! I continue to hear regularly from readers that write me that they are sharing information about this blog and the 60-Second Guide with their rheumatologists. Hope the flare tapers out soon!
