BMJ Best Practice

UCL has a trial of BMJ Best Practice until 11 March 2009.

Best Practice, part of the BMJ Evidence Centre, is a decision support tool that combines the latest research evidence with guidelines and expert opinion. It takes a patient-centred approach that covers diagnosis, prognosis, treatment and prevention in step-by-step stages.

Please send feedback on the BMJ Best Practice trial to ejournals@ucl.ac.uk. Feedback helps librarians assess the importance of new resources.

E-books project - your chance to take part!

The JISC national e-books observatory project currently provides staff and students with free access to a collection of electronic books via the MyiLibrary platform. A full list of the books included in the project can be found at:http://www.jiscebooksproject.org/wp-content/full-list-of-e-books-oct-2007b.doc (medical titles are listed on last page).
The aim of the project is to find out more about usage, promotion and purchasing of e-books in academic libraries. For more information on the project go to http://www.jiscebooksproject.org/
Staff and students are invited to take part in a focus group about the electronic books provided as part of this project. Participating students from around 14 institutions (including UCL) will be entered into a prize draw to win one of 6 prizes of £100.
