Use of MEDLINE by medical students: results of a survey of the students of the Pritzker School of Medicine of the University of Chicago



Use of MEDLINE by medical students: results of a survey of the students of the Pritzker School of Medicine of the University of Chicago



Bulletin of the Medical Library Association 73(3): 259-262



Because medical school is a logical place for information retrieval capabilities to be introduced to future physicians, a survey was conducted at the Pritzker School of Medicine of the University of Chicago in August 1984 to determine the students' awareness and use of MEDLINE. The study found that many students were unaware of MEDLINE and its capabilities, and that the MEDLINE orientation for students during the first week of medical school was inadequate. Suggestions for improving the orientation were solicited from the students, and these have been analyzed and discussed.
