New "Case Studies" Show Becker Library Resources in Action

WUSM classroom

Becker Library is pleased to introduce a new resource for students, Case Studies: Using Becker Library Resources.

The two case scenarios take clinical questions and demonstrate how Becker Library resources can be used to answer each question. Descriptive text and screenshots steer students through using the resources. Suggested strategies for answering each question are provided for first and second year medical students, third and fourth year medical students, and residents.

The Case Studies are accessible from key sections of the Becker Library web site, including the recently-launched Clinical Portal ( Case Studies are the product of a partnership between medical students and the Becker Library divisions of Health Information Resources and Digital Initiatives.
