From the Editor|
In our latest issue we highlight our library training seminars for 2013. There are lots of opportunities to learn about databases and tools to make you a better, more efficient user and searcher of evidence-based information. We also highlight the birthday celebration of the J.W. Crane Library, our library Toolkits, a cool mobile app, our new Consumer Health librarian (she has been busy), and the latest from the Medical Archives.
We wish all of our library patrons a safe, happy holiday season and all the best in the new year.
