I have no fear of being accused of plagiarism or copyright infringement.


The library provides clinical and scholarly resources that are otherwise not available to you . . .


When I use a database, I know its scope of content. I know how many items are included, what subjects are covered, what types of resources are included, the publisher's bias, etc.
