External benchmarking was undertaken in 2010 to provide another measure of the adequacy of
the MSL collection. The Association of Academic Health Science Libraries (AAHSL), a
consortium of 132 North American academic health sciences libraries, developed a “core list” of
electronic resources. A comparison of MSL resources available with that list for FY 2010
reveals that TAM HSC users have access to 95% of the 62 core electronic resources. TAM HSC
access available to these resources by type of resource follows:
Access to 100% of the 15 AAHSL Core eBooks
Access to 97% of the 37 AAHSL Core eJournals
Access to 80% of the 10 AAHSL Core Databases
