Resources: New Mobile List With Resources from Welch Medical Library, Review of DOAJ And The Blueprints Databases

I am changing the format of my blog in 2010. There will be more posts, more often and in a little different format.

The most prolific library blog in the first few days of the new year was Resourceshelf.

Medical Librarians can now go to a comprehensive list of medical resources ( databases, drug guides; patient info ..etc). If I was a medical student or a doctor I will talk to the college librarian or IT department immediately on how to get hooked to these awesome information assets. ( Resourceshelf has more)

Gary Price from Resourceshelf also highlighetd a review of Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ)by Dr. Peter Jacso from the University of Hawaii. As we know the database publishes only free of charge, full text accessible at time of publication, scientific magazines, with editorial and " peer-review" control. Dr. Jacso concludes that

... many users would be very satisfied being led to journals that do have a 6-month or 1-year moratorium — which may have already expired when the item is looked up by the searcher.

This policy excludes hundreds of high quality scientific journals that have a rationally delayed open access policy, and a huge collection of widely read and widely cited papers.

I don’t use blueprints, but many engineers, architects, and builders do, so go ahead and read Tara Calishain's instructionsfromResearchBuzz on how to register for The-Blueprints and view free of charge the drawings in their original size.
