Keeping Current with the Evidence Using PubMed and EndNote – Classes on July 13th and September 14th

June 20, 2017

Having trouble keeping up with the topics you are most interested in?

Laura Brown, clinical librarian, will be reprising her Keeping Current class which she regularly teaches during Learning and Personal Development Week.

Attendees will get an overview of PubMed which will include setting up a MyNCBI account, and performing a PubMed search on a topic of their interest and saving it to their account. In addition, attendees will be given an introduction to EndNote and shown how to load search results from PubMed into their library, obtain the full text of select articles, organize a personal library (divide citations into groups), and email a compressed library to themselves.

The sessions are scheduled for July 13th from 12 to 1 p.m. and September 14th from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Graff Medical and Scientific Library (Library Conference Room, G112). Laptops will be provided. Please visit here to register.

New Scanners: Better Quality and Improved Efficiency

June 12, 2017

Library Services has added two new OpticBook A300 scanners to improve service to our patrons and other libraries. This new equipment contributes to a more efficient workflow and produces better quality scans. This change will impact ILLiad users who place document delivery service requests for journal articles and book chapters from our print collection, as well as other libraries via interlibrary loan requests.

The OpticBook A300 scanner located behind the front desk in the library is available to our users. Please ask library staff for assistance.
