DSM V online access trial

Professional development

As we prepare to start a new round of purchasing there is certainly one item that has been requested above all others…

DSM V!
 
Given the spread of requests across offices, and the demand in the busier offices we’re considering purchasing online access.  This will be a significant purchase by the library.  Unlike an individual purchasing an eBook, libraries pay significantly more (30-100 times more) to deliver access to multiple people simultaneously.

 

We are beginning our access to the DSM V on a one month trial basis to assess whether this item should be purchased. Our access has been arranged by supplying IP addresses for the organisations’ servers, because of this you will need to use a computer in your office.  Every office should have access.  Please make sure it works by visiting www.PsychiatryOnline.org and without logging in you should see at the top right column, “Your access is provided courtesy of Healthy Options Australia.” If this is not the case, please let the library know. We have a limited package now for the trial, which includes DSM V (full package details below).  The DSM V is set out across a series of webpages, not as an eBook per se. 

The decision whether to purchase this costly item for the library will be based on your usage and feedback over the next month. You can provide feedback in the comments here, or email library@drugarm.com.au
