October is National Medical Librarians Month
Avoid Misinformation! Take the Right Path: Partner with your Medical Librarian
National Medical Librarians Month is celebrated each year during the month of October. This year’s theme from the Medical Library Association is “Avoid Misinformation! Take the Right Path: Partner with your Medical Librarian.” MCW Libraries staff is proud of our work to connect our library users to authoritative, timely information. Here are some examples of what we do for the MCW community.
- How can I find the best clinical evidence?
Use our Evidence Based Medicine or Evidence Based Practice research guides and learn how to search for and evaluate current research to find the best evidence for making clinical care decisions.
- I want to Publish. Is this journal credible?
Check out our research guide on Journal Evaluation Tools. Finding an appropriate journal will maximize your success with getting your manuscript accepted, enhance the visibility of your research, and broaden the impact your research will have on science or the community.
- Where can I find accessible patient information in multiple languages?
