To whom it may concern:
It has come to my attention that the VCU medical library does not have a subscription to Nature of Medicine, which is one of the top ISI rated journals. It is somewhat embarassing that I have to ask my colleagues at UVA to obtain an article from such an important research journal. AS VCU continues to improve its outward appearance, I feel that it is necessary that such materials be made available so that the research performed at this institution can reach its potential.
Sincerely, Mike, Department of Neurosurgery
Tompkins-McCaw Library Reference Librarian Barbara Wright replies..
I'm very pleased to inform you that VCU Libraries does, indeed, provide access for VCU users to NATURE MEDICINE - both in print at Tompkins-McCaw Library for the Health Sciences [volume 6 (2000) to present] and online [volume 4 (1998) to present].
VCU Libraries particularly appreciates faculty suggestions for additions to its collections. Your suggestions help us develop collections to better meet the teaching, research, and clinical information needs of VCU users. On its Faculty Resources page, VCU Libraries provides a Purchase Suggestion form specifically for that purpose.
Thank you for your interest in and support of VCU Libraries. Please let us know if we can assist you further.
