Why Use Multiple Databases?

Different databases focus on different areas of the literature, which is particularly true in MDS/CLS. A 2003 study of the clinical laboratory science literature (including molecular diagnostic science) indicated that, “Comprehensive coverage of the literature of the field can only be accomplished through the use of multiple bibliographic databases, although each of the various indexing services fills an important niche.”  Reference:  Delwiche, FA.  Mapping the Literature of Clinical Laboratory Science. J Med Libr Assoc 91(3), July 2003, p 309.
