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 - medical librarians, content specialists, the medical book distributors, and the staff of Doody Enterprises, Inc. Because of the cumulative efforts of nearly 200 individuals, we are able to produce a reliable, annual list of core titles in just over two months.

Librarian Selectors

Doody's Core Titles is the result of the collective judgment of 116 collection development librarians from 101 health sciences libraries who served as Librarian Selectors in the 121 specialties represented in the 2023 edition.

Each specialty had up to three librarian selectors (and no fewer than two). They had the responsibility of adding titles to the selections of the Content Specialists, scoring all the titles according to five basic collection development criteria, then selecting those titles they consider Essential Purchase Titles.
