  • December 29th from 10-11:30am: Advanced EndNote
    Learn to modify output styles, create bibliographies, edit journal terms lists, and use EndNote Web. At the end of this class, participants will be able to: 1) Understand and edit journal output styles; 2) Create a bibliography not linked to a manuscript/creating a subject bibliography; 3) Modify citations in a manuscript; 4) Switch between full journal names & journal title abbreviations – editing journal terms lists; and 5) Use basic features of EndNote Web.
  • December 29th from 1-2:30pm: Tips, Tricks, and Strategies for Troubleshooting EndNote

    • Retain copyright – read the journal publisher’s copyright transfer agreement to make sure you’re able to comply with the policy and deposit the paper to PubMed Central
    • Submit your paper to PubMed Central – there are a number of methods to do this; when the publisher doesn’t do this for free, the library can do it for you
    • Cite using PMCIDs – in biosketches, progress reports, and applications, incorporate the PubMed Central ID into the citations of applicable papers authored by you or that come from your NIH-funded project

Important changes to the library’s interlibrary loan and document delivery service

December 15, 2010

The library is making two important changes to our interlibrary loan and document delivery service.

Standard requests are free!

Effective immediately, standard requests are free.  Standard requests for articles are typically filled in 4-5 working  days, while standard requests for books require 7-10 working days.  If you need a book or article sooner, you can submit a rush request for a $20 fee.  Rush requests for articles are typically filled in 1-2 working days, while rush requests for books typically take 7 working days.

New request form, new system for managing requests

Beginning in early January, the library will start using a new system called ILLiad for managing interlibrary loan and document delivery requests.  With ILLiad, you enter your personal information only once—when you register for an account.  Once you’ve registered, you can log in to submit requests, view the status of requests, and retrieve articles delivered electronically.  We will launch ILLiad on January 4, January 11 (launch postponed due to staffing issues) but you can sign up for an account now.  Just visit http://cityofhope.illiad.oclc.org/illiad/logon.html and click on the First Time Users link at the bottom of the login form.  Then you’ll be ready to use the new system.

If you have any questions about the new system, please contact the library: library@coh.org or ext. 68497.


Library Workshop: Finding the Best Evidence

Below are links for the Finding the Best Evidence educational session held today, December 10th, from 10:15 am – noon in Conference Room B.

  • EndNote Web — Access EndNote from wherever you are with this Web-based version. EndNote Web allows you to online search, Cite While You Write, create groups to organize your references, and share your groups with your collaborators.

  1. What keywords did you use? Did you use limits? If so, which ones?
  2. Why and how would you use this resource to identify evidence to support your practice?
  3. Why and how would you use this resource to identify evidence to support your EBN project?
  4. Can you get the items full-text or online?
  5. Is there a feature that you particularly liked or disliked?
  6. Can you think of other uses outside of the development of guidelines and protocols?
