Call for Electronic Resources Reviews for the JMLA

The Journal of the Medical Library Association is seeking authors for electronic resource reviews for upcoming issues. The purpose of the electronic resources reviews in the JMLA is to provide critical appraisals of electronic products that can assist staff in health sciences libraries as they make collection development and technology implementation decisions. Reviewers can evaluate any relevant type of resource, such as databases and catalogs, electronic collections, research and reference tools, library management systems, and educational instruments. Health sciences resources are the primary focus of reviews. To be reviewed, resources must be readily accessible for use in health sciences libraries.

Electronic resource reviews are short pieces, generally 2-3 double-spaced pages in length. Reviewers are not required to be members of MLA. Additional guidelines for electronic resource reviewers are online at http://www.mlanet.org/publications/jmla/jmla_eresource.html

Please contact Rachel R. Walden, MLIS at jmlaeditor [AT] vanderbilt [DOT] edu to propose a topic of review if you are interested in writing a piece for this section of the journal.
