Libraries host NLM Shakespeare exhibit

Shakespearelogowithpicture

The Isché and Dental Libraries are happy to host the National Library of Medicine’s “And there’s the humor of it” Shakespeare and the Four Humors traveling exhibit. Come learn about the four humors and how they were believed to dictate a person’s health and demeanor. The Libraries have also put together a selection of books and articles that look at the development and advances of medicine during Shakespeare’s time.

The exhibit will be available at the Isché Library on the third floor of the Resource Center from March 15th through April 2nd on the Downtown Campus. It will then be at the Dental Library on the third floor of the Administration Building from April 6th through 22nd at the Dental Campus.

More information about this NLM traveling exhibit can be found at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/hmd/about/exhibition/travelingexhibitions/shakespeare.html. This exhibition was developed and produced by the National Library of
Medicine, National Institutes of Health and the Folger Shakespeare Library.

 

 

Databases Beyond PubMed: March’s Library Lunchtime Learning

Choosing the right tool for the job is just as important in the library as it is in the clinic. PubMed/MEDLINE is a reliable and extensive resource, but it may not always be the appropriate one for your information need. During March’s Library Lunchtime Learning session, we’ll examine several other databases that could be appropriate to use in different circumstances.

Databases Beyond PubMed

March 17, 12-1 p.m., Computer Laboratory, 4th floor Library, Resource Center Building

March 23, 12-1 p.m., Copping Room (2309), LSU School of Dentistry

If you plan to attend, please RSVP to rpremo@lsuhsc.edu with your name and department; however, drop-ins are welcome!

Abstract Writing workshop

In scholarly writing, abstracts and citations have a great deal of impact in terms of touching the outside research community (after all, when was the last time you did not use abstracts to select which search results or conference posters you wanted to read in entirety). Yet, authors often spare them little attention, throwing together a few sentences before submitting a manuscript.

As part of the monthly Library Lunchtime Learning series, next week we will focusing on how to write strong abstracts that accurately represent your research while attracting potential readers. Additionally, we will cover a few guiding principles for citing sources.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP to rpremo@lsuhsc.edu; however, drop-ins are welcome!

3D printing coming soon!

The LSUHSC-NO Libraries is proud to announce that it has been awarded the first  National Network of Libraries of Medicine South Central Region’s (NN/LM SCR) Emerging Technologies Award.  With the funds provided by this award, the Libraries will purchase two 3 dimensional printers and two 3 dimensional scanners to be placed in the libraries.  This equipment will be available for free to everyone affiliated with LSUHSC-NO.

LSUHSC-NO Libraries’ goal of this project is to provide students with a friendly, welcoming, environment to innovate, create, collaborate, and discover.  The library seeks to give students, staff, and faculty opportunities to explore 3D technology in an accessible location without exorbitant costs.  These scanners and printers will offer the means to build prototypes, create models, improve equipment, and so on, limited only by one’s imagination.

The mission of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM) is to advance the progress of medicine and improve the public health by providing all U.S. health professionals with equal access to biomedical information and improving the public’s access to information to enable them to make informed decisions about their health. The Program is coordinated by the National Library of Medicine and carried out through a nationwide network of health science libraries and information centers.  This year, the South Central Region instituted the Emerging Technology Award to to assist libraries in the integration of new and emerging technologies in their institutions to promote health information services.  

Further developments on this project will be announced as available.
