eTOC pilot service

A new service from The Staff Libraryjama

From 16 June we will be piloting our electronic table of contents service (eTOC) which uses emails to update the recipient of the latest content of their favourite journals.  Initially we are focussing on just two of the hundreds of online publications – New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) and the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA). However, if there is sufficient interest we hope to extend this to include requests and other quality journals.

Sample content would look like this – following the links would bring up the article abstract. If we do not have a subscription to the journal, we would order the article for you as part of our inter-library loan service.

nejmNew England Journal of Medicine (24 new articles):

Tattoos and Sarcoidosis
Spot Diagnosis
Pharmacology and the Treatment of Complicated Skin and Skin-Structure Infections
Management of Skin Abscesses
Pregnancy and Infection
Adverse Health Effects of Marijuana Use

If you are interested in taking part or would like to know more, please contact Jan Read or email the Staff Library on 66 1362. Thank you.

eTOC Service in development

BMJ_sample_etocWe are currently developing a new strand to our current awareness service.  As well as offering a monthly bulletin service covering Breast Surgery, Critical Care and Falls Awareness; subscription service to a wide variety of healthcare newsfeeds eg: Child Health, Dementia, Diabetes and Orthopaedics to name just a few, you may also sign up to receive an electronic table of content (eTOC) from some of the leading journals.

The first of these is now available from the British Medical Journal.

What would I receive?  You would receive one email per month listing all the key content – news, letters, editorial, research, clinical reviews etc, and each with direct links to the content you are interested in.

How do I proceed?  If you or a number of colleagues in your department would like to receive the BMJ eTOC, please contact  or, quoting your name and email address.  Simples!
