Clinical librarians: a valuable addition to the critical care decision making team.

A new column in the Journal of the Medical Library Association looking at the value of good health information services.

This is a new column looking at the challenges of information service provision in health care. There will be case studies from medical librarianship, health informatics, medicine, and research, focusing on a variety of scenarios to help encourage discussion and development in this area.

Comments can be made on this case online at http://jmlacasestudies.blogspot.com
