Journal Apps: a comparison of 4 Journal Apps specifically designed for personalized reading (medical) scientific literature

Keeping up to date is one of the most difficult tasks in modern times for medical staff ánd librarians. The constant exponentially growth of information (on the Web) is causing many to dispare. But on the same Web comes up with new innovative ways of dealing with this task constantly. While email alerts are still the most dominant way for medical staff to keep up to date, the use of mobile devices and medical Apps is catching up fast. At the start of 2013 the Central Medical Library of the UMCG started a public trial and comparison period between 4 Journal Apps specifically designed for personalized reading of scientific literature. I will offer an extensive comparison for 3 medical journal Apps (docwise, Read by QxMD & Docphin) plus BrowZine which covers all academic areas. Many practicalities for medical libraries to set up these Apps for their patrons and access to the collections will be shared. Supporting and facilitating medical professionals in education, patient-care and research is the main focus for medical and health librarians. We constantly have to attempt to make their workflow more efficient and easier. To be abled to advice patrons about efficient ways of keeping up to date, we háve to know what tools are out there. In this presentation I will picture the wide range of possibilities of keeping up to date in relation to the rise of (medical) Apps. In my CEC workshop I want to go even more into more detail on these possibilities.
