Info-Rx: Newsletter of the Health Sciences Libraries 
December 2013
Your prescription for quality health information

From the Editor|

As 2013 quickly comes to a close, the University of Manitoba Health Sciences Libraries celebrates another year providing services and resources in support of the teaching, research, and clinical needs of our users. In this issue of our newsletter, we highlight a recent article by Sollenberger and Holloway in The Journal of the American Medical Association summarizing the growing evidence on the value of libraries and librarians to the healthcare environment, especially during times of decreased budgets and increased demands on time. 

We also provide you with information on the library hours during the holiday break; feature resources available in our new online resource, Clinical Key by Elsevier; bring you up to date on some changes happening with the Library Catalogue; and alert you to the availability of the iPads for checkout from the Neil John Maclean Health Sciences Library.  The Faculty of Medicine Archives outlines new projects related to archiving the web.  Finally we feature some news about two apps UptoDate and QxMD

The staff of the University of Manitoba Health Sciences Libraries wish all a peaceful and joyous holiday season.
