Rittenhouse Services for Libraries

Services

Approval Plan Services

The web-based Rittenhouse Approval Plan ensures that our Library Partners can monitor and plan acquisition of the most up-to-date publications without sacrificing any of the oversight or flexibility that is required due to current budget realities.  While retaining the inherent sophistication, convenience and specialization of the traditional Approval Plan, Rittenhouse has recently rebooted our service to ensure that it is a valuable acquisition and development tool for the contemporary library.

New and Noteworthy Titles for Libraries

To keep our Library Partners up-to-date, each month Rittenhouse provides a list of essential and forthcoming Medical, Nursing and Allied Health titles. We have recently updated this service to give Library Partners the ability to view these titles on our website and add them directly to a shopping cart from the title list. Library Partners also have the ability to print, email or download the lists.

Doody's Core Title

Rittenhouse recognizes that few resources in medical publishing are as important as Doody’s Core Titles (DCT). The premier review service for health science publications, libraries rely on DCT throughout the year as they manage their collections, evaluate titles and make acquisition decisions. Rittenhouse has developed a service that creates prospective orders for Library Partners by combining order history data with the latest DCT information. This sophisticated reporting tool integrates two critical data sets – the best titles available and institutional acquisition history – into a single report for Rittenhouse Library Partners.
