Okan Koc


In recent years, the importance of electronic information resources in terms of scientific communication has increased considerably. The fact that electronic information sources deliver the most current information to the user in the fastest way in terms of branches of science leads the researchers in medical and health sciences to these resources. Databases are information and access systems that offer a variety of electronic information sources, both public and custom. These are the structures that undertake the guidance / consulting role of the researchers in the re-production of information. It is an indispensable part of today's libraries and researchers with its advantages such as speed, price and ease of use. It makes it compulsory to think about today's information centers, which are of vital importance in the reproduction of academic knowledge, except traditional processes. At the same time, databeses that constitute the support column of research have an important role in the creation of the future society. In our study, the importance of databases in the reproduction process of medical information has been mentioned. Nevertheless, an evaluation was carried out on the impact of the use of databases and information technologies in academic studies.
