The New Taubman Health Sciences Library

The library I work in has reopened after an 18 month renovation. It's sharp and it's getting a lot of attention. Also, I have a couch in my office. 



UpToDate and Health Care Outcomes

Upon reading the title, my first thought was that hospitals that adopt UpToDate are somehow different than those that do not.  They might be larger, wealthier, have libraries, extensive collections of clinical resources, a different culture of care, etc.  The study accounts for some, but not all, of these.  My suspicion is that the use of point-of-care resources in general, regardless of the specific resource, improves care simply by making evidence more accessible to clinicians.
