Doody’s Core Titles is the result of the collective wisdom of collection development librarians from medical libraries throughout the world. Every year since 2004, some 100 librarians volunteer to serve as Librarian Selectors in 124 specialties in clinical medicine, nursing, allied health, the basic sciences, and other disciplines to select the must-have titles for medical libraries from among the thousands that are available. Many librarians serve year after year, but there are new volunteers each year.

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 consider Essential Purchase titles for small libraries.
