Doody's free monthly blog with guest articles, major electronic resources reviews, product highlights and more.

In response to reader demand, Doody’s Collection Development Monthly® was developed as a free service for subscribers to Doody’s Review Service and Doody’s Core Titles. Premiering in January 2014, DCDM includes both a website and a monthly e-mail newsletter, published on the fourth Tuesday of the month.

Doody’s Collection Development Monthly features:
  • Guest Reviews written by librarians for librarians of major electronic resources

  • Case Studies of marketing success stories in health sciences libraries

  • Q & As with our Library Board of Advisorsand (coming soon) Doody’s Core Titles Librarian Selectors

  • Publisher Profiles of the many publishers that participate in Doody’s Review Service

  • Specialty Profiles that focus on the number and type of  books published in a specific subject area.

  • Profiles of our ERG Chairs: Our Editorial Review Group (ERG) Chairs and Librarian Advisors are the bedrock of our company.

  • Product Highlights our partners want to pass along to health sciences and collection development librarians (sponsored content)

  • In addition, each issue can contain highlights of up to three new products that we consider especially important for collection development librarians to be aware of.

Doody’s Collection Development Monthly Newsletter publishes reviews of databases, not only providing evaluations of databases librarians are familiar with, but also introducing new databases to librarians that they may have not had an opportunity to examine personally.
