Abstract

Finding literature relating to a specific patient-care problem has never been an easy task for medical professionals, since traditional print resources such as textbooks and journals are rarely available in clinical settings. While a College/University/Hospital library can serve as an excellent source of information, its resources may be too limited to answer all of the questions that arise on a daily basis in a physician's practice. Recent trends in the marketing of „electronic information technology? have increased interest among medical professionals in obtaining direct access to online databases. Medical professionals can access extensive online databases now. This paper makes an effort in providing the details on the micro site which has provided for medical professionals for effective searching of online databases held by the library at Kasturba Medical College, Manipal, India.
