Many computerized information services have been developed to facilitate the retrieval and dissemination of medical information. Drug information in particular has been identified as a medical information need. Pharmacists, especially in the community setting, can serve an important role as an information resource to patients, physicians, and other health care professionals.

Therefore, the purpose of this study was to evaluate and compare the utility of GRATEFUL MED and BRS Colleague as information sources to community pharmacists, pharmacy students during externship rotations at these sites, and university based clinical pharmacists.
