EBSCO’s New Medical Ebook Collections
EBSCO Publishing (EBSCO) released three new medical ebook collections featuring Doody’s recommended content. Doody’s is an authoritative medical book review service designed to assist medical libraries and institutions with their purchasing decisions. Librarians can select titles and build a collection to meet their institution’s specific medical research needs.
The new ebook collections revolve around the 2012 Doody’s Core Titles list, published May 1, 2012, and Doody’s Review Service starred reviews. These collections provide medical libraries with convenient ways to begin or expand their ebook collections with current, reputable content from leading publishers. The collections include the Doody’s Core Titles 2012 Featured Collection, the Doody’s 4- and 5- Star Reviewed Titles 2012 Featured Collection, and the Doody’s Core Titles 2012 Essential Purchases Subject Set.
The Doody’s Core Titles 2012 Featured Collection offers a package of front list medical ebooks from the Doody’s Core Titles (DCT) 2012 list. Published annually, the DCT list highlights the best titles from a variety of medical specialties. Core Titles are based on a four-step selection and scoring process from nearly 200 medical librarians and content specialists.
Doody’s Review Service (DRS) uses a vast network of medical librarians and specialists to review new content monthly, rating it on a 5-star scale. The Doody’s 4- and 5- Star Reviewed Titles 2012 Featured Collection contains 4-and 5-star rated titles from the DRS 2012 reviews. It includes some titles from the Doody’s Core Title 2012 list and content will be added throughout the year.
The Doody’s Core Titles 2012 Essential Purchases Subject Set features a selection of front list “essential purchase” titles from DCT 2012 that are crucial for small to medium-sized medical libraries according to Doody’s. Ebook Subject Sets are convenient, prepackaged sets of titles chosen to meet libraries’ needs for new content on popular, in-demand topics. Titles in this Subject Set are not available in any other Subject Set package—current or past.
