We’re in the pilot phase! Update on our online publication database

October 17, 2012

As you may know, Library Services and ITS Research have been working with an outside vendor to create an online database of COH publications. The system is now in pilot phase. As part of this phase, we’ve extended access to the system beyond our working group and have asked a small group of  researchers, core facility directors, and administrative personnel to use it, and provide us with feedback.

Right now the database contains City of Hope publications from 2000-present that are indexed in PubMed. We are continuing to add COH publications (including books and book chapters) as well as connect publications with COH employee information to help with author disambiguation and enhance publication records to include information on what core facilities supported the research.

We will release the system to the rest of the COH community in the new year, but for now have chosen just a few more people to use it so that we can address any issues as well as make further modifications before it is released in its final form in 2013.

Our goal is to include all COH publications from 2000 to present in the initial system release.

Want to know more about the system? Have questions? Please contact the library (library@coh.org or x68497) or stop by the Graff Library front desk to discuss the system with us. If you missed previous updates about the system, take a look at these posts:

Preliminary testing: COH publications database

August 27, 2012

We continue to work on the City of Hope publications database. This past month, a small group of people tested the system. Representatives from various departments, such as Hematology, Immunology, ITS Research, Medical Oncology, Neurosciences, and Nursing Research, worked through a number of tasks in the system.  Library Services staff also tested the system.

Testers performed a variety of searches—e.g. author names, keywords, and core facilities—and filtered results by various criteria, e.g. co-authors, date ranges, grant numbers, and publication types.  They also tried out the My List feature, which lets you save publications for exporting later. The basic functions worked just fine during testing, but we learned that some aspects of the system were difficult to use.  The vendor is addressing these, and the initial release of the system is planned for later this month.

Wanted: Books by City of Hope authors

November 28, 2011

Did you know?  The library collects books containing works by City of Hope authors.  We have a small collection now, which you can find by doing a subject search on “city of hope authors” in our catalog, and we’d like to add more.  Here’s how you can help:

  • Have you written a book or a chapter or paper in a book?  Please let us know, so we can buy a copy.
  • Do you have extra copies of a book that includes your work (or the work of a City of Hope colleague)?  Please consider donating a copy to the library.

With your help, we can collect and preserve City of Hope’s legacy of outstanding scholarship.
