Clinical manuals and pocket references provide comfort for medical students, psychiatry residents, and other trainees who are faced with the overwhelming challenge of integrating vast amounts of new information into psychiatric practice. Collections of index cards, spiral-bound manuals, and even hand-held computers rest quietly in white coat pockets, waiting to be called on to provide the latest data for clinical rounds.

One of the most common resources is A Pocket Reference for Psychiatrists, now in its third edition.
