smart people use library services

Thank goodness for Dr Glen Gole and other champion doctors at Brisbane's Royal Children's Hospital who are advocating for a world-class library and research centre in the proposed new Queensland Children's Hospital. It was revealed this week that due to space shortages the library has been omitted. Des Houghton reported in The Courier Mail (Jan 10-11, p. 54) that 'Doctors were infuriated when it was suggested they should look up the internet instead'. The internet replace a medical library? You. Are. Joking.
Check out the Herston Health Sciences Library's collection, facilities and services. Those database subscriptions to Medline and CINAHL don't come free.
Smart people use library services, and advocate for them when others demonstrate they have no idea of their importance.
