Library News for 2007

InfoPOEMs/ InfoRetriever

InfoRetriever® instantly presents the best known evidence by searching 6 filtered−evidence content and tools databases, formatted for use in practice. Evidence and evidence−derived tools include the complete database of InfoPOEMs®.

InfoPOEMs® are synopses of new evidence, relevant to patient care, from a continuous review, grading, and critical appraisal of 1200+ studies published monthly in 100 journals. Each study is filtered for relevance and then for validity, using criteria from the Centre for Evidence−Based Medicine (Oxford). About 1 in 40 studies qualify as an InfoPOEM, and 20−30 InfoPOEMs are identified monthly. Some of the 100 journals are American Journal of Ophthalmology, Archives of Ophthalmology, Diabetes, Diabetes Care, Eye, Ophthalmology.

We have trial access until January 20. Follow this link to try it out (available on or off campus):
