Today’s medical libraries are facing increasingly complex challenges. The nature of their collections has changed dramatically. They have made large investments in digital content, but face the daunting challenge of how to deliver the right content to their users in an easy, simple to use manner.  Staffing limitations, lack of IT resources, and limited time to meet the needs of their researchers only further complicate matters.

In order to help medical libraries address these issues, TDNet has created a comprehensive Technology+Content+Service solution for discovery and management of all of their electronic resources in one simple to use, yet powerful platform: TDNet Discover.
