We are making some changes to the way you request copies of articles from the library and I need help! Is there someone who has 30 minutes sometime next week to looked over an edited ILL request page to see if it makes sense? I’ve looked at them so long I know I can’t see the holes. I’d really appreciate it! Email me at email@example.com if you can help. Thanks!

The 5-Minute Clinical Consult 2010 is now available online via Books@OVID. The book’s Preface describes the new edition as including:
- Even more Evidence Based designations highlighted in each topic’s text
- Dedication of our outstanding Associate Editors to oversee content by Specialty
- Updated Health Maintenance section
- An online version of the content which includes:
- Additional topics not in the book
- Patient Education handouts
- Video instruction on physical diagnostic and treatment interventions
I found the search a bit awkward and the navigation too basic but the printing and emailing options are easy to find and use. It includes more references but I would still like to see additional information given to back up the data. If you are REALLY pressed for time, look at the Clinical Pearls for each topic. A sentence or two to remember about most conditions. If you are off campus and can’t get to UpToDate, give this a try. It used to be a part of Essential Evidence Plus and I would still go there first if I needed a quick review of the data on a given topic.
