Essential Nursing Resources 2012 now available online

The Interagency Council on Information Resources in Nursing (ICIRN) has released the 26th edition of Essential Nursing Resources (ENR), an expansive resource list intended to be used by nurses and librarians. Because the list of possible resources has grown so large the ENR has become too large and expensive to publish in print and so it appears only online at www.icirn.org , on the ICIRN website.
Nurses can use ENR as a tool to assist them with building a personal professional collection of resources to support and advance their area of practice. Librarians can utilize this tool as an evaluation point in determining collection development, and as a reference tool. ENR is neither a comprehensive presentation nor product endorsement, but represents the opinions of the contributors. This tool is meant to assist nurses and librarians to evaluate on their own what resources best apply to their particular situation. Only the most recent editions and website addresses have been included. The ENR was compiled to point to pathways for exploration, rather than be an end point, and to expand to other formats beyond traditional references.
New to this edition is a very handy key to let users know if: 

$ =fee required; M=mobile; O=online; P=print 

- for each resource listed.

New and redesigned sections  in this edition include Blogs; Forums and Discussion list; Evidence-based Nursing; Management; Patient Safety/Quality Assurance; and Toxicology, Environmental, Occupational Health.
