NCBI has a new Twitter feed - @ncbibooks - to announce new books and documents available on the NCBI Bookshelf. An online resource providing free access to the full text of books and documents in life sciences and health care, the Bookshelf currently provides access to over 4,500 titles.

The Bookshelf is continuously expanding with new materials as well as receiving updates to existing books and documents. Between May 16 and May 20, 2016, for example, 19 new titles were added. Among the new titles are several Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality reports (for example, a comparative effectiveness report on imaging for pretreatment staging of small cell lung cancer), health technology assessments and systematic reviews from Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health, and National Institute for Health Research (UK), and World Health Organization guidelines on daily iron supplementation.
