Abstract


Dear Colleagues,Services provided by librarians to clinicians have been shown to be effective in saving time for health professionals andproviding relevant information for decision-making. Patients’ length of stay was reduced when clinicians requestedliterature searches related to a patient's case (L. Perrier et al., J Am Med Inform Assoc. 2014 May 28).Moreover, librarians have become more involved in developing high quality systematic reviews (P. Cruse and S.Protzko. Med Ref Serv Q. 2014;33:327).A study compared Wikipedia articles on the most costly medical conditions with standard, evidence-based, peerreviewedsources. The conclusion is that caution should be used when using Wikipedia to answer questions regardingpatient care (R.T. Hasty et al. J Am Osteopath Assoc. 2014;14:368).
