Happy International Open Access Week

 

Open Access logo

Open Access logo

Open access to information—the free, immediate, online access to the results of scholarly research and the right to use and re-use those results—has the power to transform the way research and scientific inquiry are conducted. It has direct and widespread implications for academia, medicine, science, industry, and for society as a whole. October 20-26 has been declared International Open Access Week, an opportunity for education and advocacy regarding the open sharing of information. Visit the Open Access Week website for more information about events being held around the world. 

In honor of Open Access Week, LSUHSC-NO will be offering a Library Lunchtime Learning workshop on the topic tomorrow, October 21, at noon in the Computer Laboratory on the 4th floor of the Isché Library. We hope to see you there!

Separate open access fact from fiction at October’s lunchtime workshops

In honor of International Open Access Week, October’s Library Lunchtime Learning will focus on this hot topic in scholarly communication by introducing attendees to the concept and looking at the latest news in OA mandates. The workshop will also discuss predatory publishers (some of who disguise themselves in the cloak of open access) and how to identify article and conference solicitations that may not be on the up and up.

We hope to see you at 12 p.m. on either Thursday, October 9, in the Wirth Room (2203) on the Dental Campus or Tuesday, October 21, in the Ische Library’s Computer Lab for this important and timely topic. Please RSVP at dentlib@lsuhsc.edu if you can, but remember that drop-ins are always welcome.

Ische Library Closed – September 20th

University Facilities sent out the following email at 1:30 pm today:

On Saturday, September 20th, from 6:00 AM to 7:00 PM, there will be a complete air conditioning outage in the Allied Health/Nursing Building, Clinical Sciences Research Building, Lions/LSU Clinics Building, Medical Education Building and the Resource Center Building.  With the exception of the Animal Care spaces, there will not be any air conditioning anywhere in these buildings during this outage.  Walk-in coolers will not be affected but limited access to any refrigeration units is recommended due to higher indoor air temperatures. This outage is necessary for a contractor to replace a large failing chilled water isolation valve in the Central Plant.  This valve must be replaced as soon as possible.  Further delay may result in total failure and an extended loss of air conditioning during regular weekday hours.

Because of the a/c shutdown both the Isché Library and the Library Commons will be closed on Saturday.

The Isché Library will reopen at 1:30 pm on Sunday, September 21st.

SoD’s Martello Honored for Volunteer Service

Congratulations to LSUSD clinical faculty member Dr. Frank Martello. The United Cerebral Palsy of Greater New Orleans (UCPGNO) recently honored him for his 30 years of volunteer service at the organization’s Dental Clinic. Since 1984, Dr. Martello has treated the oral health needs of thousands of developmentally disabled children and adults with cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, and autism. Additionally, Dr. Martello has provided oral screenings at Louisiana Special Olympics events for the past 20 years and helped establish the Farhad Grotto Dentistry for the Handicapped facility in Harahan.

Learn at the Libraries in September

Evidence-Based Practice is a term that is often bandied about but rarely understood. During the Library Lunchtime Learning session in September, we hope to clear up some of the mystery by taking attendees step by step through the EBP process, from identifying the clinical question through evaluating the decision made. Other topics of conversation include the resources that are most helpful for answering EBP questions as well as barriers to implementing EBP.

We hope you can join us at either workshop. If you plan to attend, please RSVP to dentlib@lsuhsc.edu.

September 10, 12-1 p.m.
