Libraries have a duty to provide access to a variety of resources based on the needs of their users. This is especially important to libraries that serve medical students, faculty, doctors, nurses, and other professionals. McDonald and Hawcroft state, “the library has a responsibility to ensure clinicians are linked to information, and have access to the best available evidence and swiftest translation of bench-to-bedside research.”...

"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.
