Call for articles! Journal of Electronic Resources in Medical Libraries (JERML) is now calling for articles for our next issue of the journal. Authors will have a great deal of latitude in the selection of their topics.

As a peer-reviewed professional journal, JERML is devoted to the access, evaluation, and management of electronic resources in the medical library environment. This journal is an essential resource for academic medical school libraries, hospital libraries, and other health sciences libraries.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Collection development and selection of electronic resources
  • Electronic document delivery in medicine and healthcare
  • Enhancing electronic resource user services
  • Print versus electronic or combination formats
  • Site licensing-what librarians need to know
  • Delegating work that involves electronic/digital acquisitions
  • Cataloging-e-books, e-journals, and other electronic formats
  • The merger of serial and book formats in the electronic library
  • Coping with electronic misinformation, fraudulence, and shams on the Internet
  • “E-core” lists in medicine, allied health, nursing, pharmaceutical science, mental health, and other healthcare fields
  • The role of medical libraries with Electronic Health Records
  • Cost analyses of digital resources

For the next issue, please have the manuscript to me by Wednesday, March 28, 2018.

Please let me know your willingness to become a published author!
