Contributors to Doody's Core Titles (DCT)

One of the hallmarks of Doody's Core Titles is the number of individuals who have contributed to its development - health science librarians, content specialists, the medical book distributors, and the staff of Doody Enterprises, Inc. Because of the cumulative efforts of over 200 individuals, we are able to produce a reliable, annual list of core titles in just over two months.

Library Board of Advisors (LBA)
More than any other group, Doody's Library Board of Advisors is responsible for developing the concept and ultimate look and feel of DCT.

Content Specialists
Academically affiliated medical, nursing and allied health school faculty serve as Content Specialists in developing the core title list in each specialty featured in DCT.

Librarian Selectors
Collection development librarians from medical libraries across the country serve as Library Selectors responsible for the final selection and scoring of the core titles in DCT.

DCT represents an unusual collaborative effort between Doody Enterprises and the medical book wholesalers to ensure the core title information is integrated with the distributors' book purchasing systems.
