Welcome to Becker Briefs!

Welcome to Becker Briefs!

Paul SchoeningPaul Schoening, Associate Dean and Director, Bernard Becker Medical Library

Today Becker Medical Library is unveiling its new vehicle for delivering relevant and timely information about library activities, resources and services to the medical school community.  We call it Becker Briefs.  While it is similar to other blogs, it has several features that make it easier to navigate, search and receive notifications about library information that is relevant to you.

Becker Briefs was designed to satisfy the “just in time” needs of our faculty, staff and students.  We realize that most people visit our web site only when they have a specific need and few routinely visit to browse for new or updated content.  Becker Briefs is meant to complement our web site by offering a quick way to see only articles of interest or to subscribe to specific streams of content.  Postings on Becker Briefs will focus on resources and services we think our users will find valuable, but may not be aware of through casual visits to our web site.  Searching or browsing the content of Becker Briefs is simplified by navigation aids linked to authors, categories and tags as well as the ubiquitous search box.  The most exciting feature of Becker Briefs, however, is the ability to subscribe via RSS to articles by author, category, or tag.  This means you only get notifications for postings that are relevant to you.

Becker Briefs grew out of the desire to better inform the medical school community about Becker Medical Library’s resources and services.  The information needs of our faculty, staff and students are as diverse as the community itself and Becker Medical Library is developing services and resources to meet as many of these needs as it can.  We think that Becker Briefs will be an effective tool to connect those in need to library resources.
