Effective communication of science to the public remains a major challenge to scientists around the world. One of the new roles of the Lipid Library is to inform the general population on important aspects of lipid science in a clear and straightforward manner. The message must be simple and understandable to encourage and excite the reader to finish the article and to refer back to the Lipid Library as a reliable source of information. The key to successful communication is to engage the reader in novel approaches to learning and avoid providing a long list of facts that are disjointed and without any context. Using tricks in education and novel approaches in communicating information on lipids, together with humor, will hopefully make the Lipid Library unique and one of the most sought after sources of information compared to other information sites on lipids.
