Kung, Simon; Lapid, Maria I.; Philbrick, Kemuel L.
Academic Psychiatry, v28 n2 p140-143 Jun 2004
Objective: "Classic" articles remain an important resource in teaching psychiatry. But, such materials are often buried in a faculty member's filing cabinet, effectively lost in today's world of instant access. We attempt to recover these materials through a marriage of traditional reading lists and contemporary technology. Method: The authors created a sharable electronic filing cabinet to store frequently used teaching materials. Conclusion: An electronic filing cabinet can organize teaching materials and increase efficiency in teaching.
