Note: Click here for more information about BioMed Central.
Note: From Richard Wood, Executive Director of Libraries, 16 June 2006:
"TTUHSC Libraries have determined that we will immediately cease participation as members of Biomed Central. This decision is a consequence of several questionable actions on the part of Biomed Central during the last ten days. We had informed Biomed Central of our intent to continue as members of that organization early in May of 2006. Nevertheless, on June 5, 2006, we discovered that the TTUHSC customized link to Biomed Central had been broken and replaced with a message which stated that TTUHSC was NOT a member institution. When we contacted Biomed Central headquarters in Great Britain to complain of this action, we were told that a mistake had been made by them, but that it would be fixed within 24 hours. That conversation took place on June 8. June 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, and 14 passed with no correction on Biomed Central's part. In the meantime, Biomed Central began its new business model which included the requirement that submittals for publication in the BMC journals be accompanied by page charges. Heretofore, all submittals by individuals whose libraries were BMC members were published with a waiving of such page charges. One of our own TTUHSC faculty members was informed that he would have to pay BMC page charges in the amount of some $1,500 in order to have his article published. Having marketed itself as a forum for open access, BMC has certainly moved over to the for profit side of things. It was at that point that the TTUHSC libraries decided to cease its $3000 annual subsidization of BMC . It is interesting to note that last year the 15 health sciences center libraries in the states of Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and New Mexico were all BMC members: there are currently only 3 who are renewing members of BMC."

BLAST® (Basic Local Alignment Search Tool)
Source: National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) (open access)
Description: "BLAST® (Basic Local Alignment Search Tool) is a set of similarity search programs designed to explore all of the available sequence databases regardless of whether the query is protein or DNA. The BLAST programs have been designed for speed, with a minimal sacrifice of sensitivity to distant sequence relationships. The scores assigned in a BLAST search have a well-defined statistical interpretation, making real matches easier to distinguish from random background hits. BLAST uses a heuristic algorithm which seeks local as opposed to global alignments and is therefore able to detect relationships among sequences which share only isolated regions of similarity (Altschul et al., 1990)."

With clinically-organized summaries for nearly 2,000 topics, DynaMed is the only evidence-based reference shown to answer most clinical questions during practice. Based on the results of a study published in Annals of Family Medicine (November/December 2005), not only did primary care clinicians answer more clinical questions with access to DynaMed than without DynaMed, but these clinicians also found more answers in DynaMed that changed clinical decisions.
DynaMed is updated daily and monitors the content of over 500 medical journals and systematic evidence review databases directly and indirectly by using many journal review services. Each publication is reviewed cover-to-cover, and each article is evaluated for clinical relevance and scientific validity. The new evidence is then integrated with existing content, and overall conclusions are changed as appropriate representing a synthesis of the best available evidence. Through this process of systematic literature surveillance, the best available evidence determines the content of DynaMed."
PDA Access: DynaMed PDA access is available by requesting an individual serial number for your PDA. Follow the instructions for Members of Subscribing Institutions. Be sure to specify your PDA type, and send the email from your ttuhsc.edu address. Serial numbers are generated manually, so please allow ample time for a reply.

Essential Evidence Plus
Source: Wiley-Blackwell (paid site license)
Description: "Essential Evidence Plus is a powerful electronic resource packed with all of the medical evidence you need to make critical patient care decisions."
Essential Evidence Plus features POEMs:
"POEM stands for Patient-Oriented Evidence that Matters®.
POEMs have to meet three criteria:
  • They address a question that we face as clinicians.
  • They measure outcomes that we and our patients care about: symptoms, morbidity, quality of life, and mortality.
  • They have the potential to change the way we practice.
Because POEMs are valid, improve important patient outcomes and change what we do, we have an obligation as clinicians to know about them. Essential Evidence Plus makes sure that you know about all the POEMs, all the time."
Note: Before 1 February 2008, Essential Evidence Plus was known as InfoPOEMs® with InfoRetriever®.
