    Evidence Based Library and Information Practice
    We are pleased to announce the release of the first issue of the new journal
    Evidence Based Library and Information Practice. EBLIP is open access, peer
    reviewed and is the first journal to focus specifically on evidence based
    practice in the information professions.

    In addition to the valuable Evidence Summaries section, this issue also
    contains research articles, papers presented at the 3rd EBL Conference in
    Australia, and EBL Conference abstracts.
    Feel free to forward this announcement to other listservs and colleagues.

    Resource Review: Scopus
    Burnham JF. Scopus database: a review Biomedical Digital Libraries 2006 3(1)

    The Scopus database provides access to STM journal articles and the references included in those articles, allowing the searcher to search both forward and backward in time. The database can be used for collection development as well as for research. This review provides information on the key points of the database and compares it to Web of Science. Neither database is inclusive, but complements each other. If a library can only afford one, choice must be based in institutional needs.
