Integrating library resources, technology, and point-of-care

The Commonwealth Medical College (TCMC) librarians propose purchase of 10 tablets for use by second year medical students, as a pilot program to enable convenient and easy access to clinical and health information via library resources while students are out in the field. Students will be encouraged to take tablets with them into clinical settings, i.e., physician?s offices and hospital settings, for the benefit of patient education, to support their own learning and research, and to share with teacher physicians up-to-the-minute clinical information resources. Training of students to use tablets should be minimal beyond orientation, as TCMC students tend to be savvy with information technology.
