Doody’s Core Titles Testimonials

Here’s what our customers are saying about Doody’s Core Titles:
“Doody’s provides a great service to collection development librarians through its core titles and the Doody’s Collection Development Monthly newsletter. Thank you for your dedication and support to the field of librarianship.” — Noreen L. Mulcahy, MLIS, AHIP, Lead Librarian, Mount Carmel Health Sciences Library, Columbus, OH

“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.” — Donna Gibbons, BA, Jewish General Hospital Health Sciences Library, Montreal, QU

“Doody’s Core Titles is one of our most frequently used collection development tools for our allied health programs. DCT is easy to use and includes reviews of recently published materials. We love it!” — Amie B., Louisville, KY

“A very useful collection management tool and well worth the reasonable price.” –Journal of the Medical Library Association

“[Since I manage collection at a] nearly all-electronic library, DCT has benefited me greatly in determining critical resources to meet the research and educational needs of our faculty and students. Even if the title is not electronically available, Doody’s reviews help me easily choose comparable titles—even within narrow medical subjects!” –Head, Collection Management, health sciences library at a major US academic medical center

“DCT is a golden standard in health care collection development.” –Electronic Resources Librarian at an academic medical center in the Southeast

“When there are so many medical resources, I find DCT as a helpful tool for selecting and building the essential collection in specific topics. It’s also well organized and easy to use.” –Acquisitions librarian from an academic medical center in the Middle East
