New Compounding Resources from USP

U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) recently added a new page on its website dedicated to compounding information including USP standards.  USP General Chapter <797> Pharmaceutical Compounding – Sterile Preparations can be downloaded  free of charge, at least for now.

Contact us if you have questions. Don’t forget Hardin Library’s subject guide on Clinical Pharmacy Resources also has a subpage for compounding resources.

New Google search feature: drug information directly shown on results page

If you have not noticed it yet, type a drug name into Google search box and you will see a quick information box on the right side of your results page. Google announced this new feature on Dec 11, 2001 on Google +.

At the bottom of the box, sources are acknowledged and a link for reporting errors provided. A prominently placed disclaimer states “Consult a doctor if you have a medical concern.”
