Extending the role of a healthcare digital library environment to support orthopaedic research

Miles-Board, T, Carr, L, Wills, G, Power, G, Bailey, C, Hall, W, Stenning, M and Grange, S (2006) Extending the role of a healthcare digital library environment to support orthopaedic research Health Informatics Journal, 12, (2), pp. 93-105.

Record type: Article


A digital archive, together with its users and its contents, does not exist in isolation; there is a cycle of activities which provides the context for the archive’s existence. In arguing for the broadening of the traditional view of digital libraries as merely collections towards the processes of collecting and deploying, we have developed an extended digital library environment for orthopaedic surgeons which bridges the gap between the undertaking of experimental work and the dissemination of its results through electronic publication.
