Librarian Selectors

Doody’s Core Titles is the result of the collective judgment of 104 collection development librarians from more than 50 medical libraries who served asLibrarian Selectors in the 121 specialties represented in the 2012 edition.

For each specialty, up to three librarian selectors have the responsibility of adding titles to the selections of the Content Specialists, scoring all the titles according to five basic collection development criteria, and selecting titles they considered Essential Purchase Titles.

Our current librarian selectors and their assigned specialities are:
