Keeping Dental Collections Current: Challenges and Goals
Annie Hughes Thompson, MSLS
Information Services Librarian
Wilson Dental Library
Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of the University of Southern California

Keeping collections current is not a new concept for medical librarians. Even on a tight budget, we aim to ensure that our patrons have access to the most up-to-date content, both print and e-format. Most core medical collections are now available in e-format through various vendors, and ease of access to content has increased tremendously.

Through my own personal experience, however, I have found that dental titles have been slow to become available in e-formats. Even now, core titles such as Ten Cate’s Oral Histology and dental hygiene texts such as Clinical Practice of the Dental Hygienist are not available from e-vendors...

"I use Doody's Core Titles throughout the year to update our collection. Once the new list is available, the Essential [Purchase] titles are reviewed. Those books that relate to our library are purchased right away.  When our patrons suggest titles…I check to see if it has an expert review and/or Doody's score before I make my decision. Prior to weeding a title that seems old I check to see if it is still current by looking on the Doody's Core Titles. To fill gaps in our collection it is easy to find a title to add by looking at New This Month or the Titles By Specialty. Needless to say, Doody's Core Titles is our main collection development tool.
