Winter Break is upon us…

The Isché and Dental Libraries will be open regular hours until Monday, December 22nd and Tuesday, December 23rd. On those days, the Isché Library will be open from 8 am to 6 pm and the Dental Library will be open from 8 am to 5 pm.

Moving Downtown

Rita Premo, Dental Reference Librarian, since August 2013 has made the move downtown to fill the Reference position recently vacated by Jessica Brooks. Rita will continue to work at the Dental Library on Mondays, until a new librarian can be hired. She is now the liaison for the School of Allied Health Professions and School of Graduate Studies. Rita has been offering the Library Lunchtime Learning series downtown (and at the Dental Library) since the summer; topics have included: Predatory Publishers, PubMed Beyond the Basics, and Scientific Writing.

Jessica Brooks worked with the Libraries from March 2013 until last month; she has been on maternity leave since September.

FDA Sets New Standards for Labels

The FDA released a new rule yesterday regarding the labeling of prescriptions and biological products which affect pregnancy, lactation and reproduction.

From the press release: “The final rule replaces the current product letter categories – A, B, C, D and X – used to classify the risks of using prescription drugs during pregnancy with three detailed subsections that describe risks within the real-world context of caring for pregnant women who may need medication.”

The new rule will go into effect by June 20, 2015.

CDC & Healthy Holidays

The CDC wants us to have a Healthy Holiday season…so they posted a webpage and a podcast and three e-cards (1, 2, 3) and …a song, sung to the tune of the 12 Days of Christmas. (The song is also featured in card 1.)

Enjoy!

PubMed problems resolved

UPDATE: The earlier problems accessing PubMed have been resolved. Please do not hesitate to let us know if you are still having troubles with this or any other Library resource.

Original post:

We are currently experiencing problems accessing PubMed both on- and off-campus. In addition, the WebBridge Link Resolver is not working from PubMed, so you will not see links to articles when you check the availability from the citations.

If you wish to continue searching PubMed, you will need to check for the availability of articles by looking up the journal titles in the Library’s catalog, INNOPAC.

The link resolver is still working correctly in other databases that also search MEDLINE. You can search Ovid or MEDLINE through EBSCOhost, and you will see any available links to the articles in the citations when you click the “Check Full Text” link.

We will update as soon as we have more information. If you need any more information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Update: A to Z List access problems

Although the previous problems with the E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List were thought to have been fixed, they are still lingering today with the list being unavailable or running slow. There is no estimate as to when the issues will be resolved.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

1949 US Public Health Service Film on Diabetes

Thanks to Circulating Now, NLM’s historical blog, I learned about the Story of Wendy Hill, created by the US Public Health Service in 1949.

Happy National Diabetes Month!

Become a Better PubMed User

Teaching, clinic, committees, research, mentoring, continuing education, administrative duties: With all that on your plate, do you really have time for inefficient literature searches?

The November Library Lunchtime Learning presentation—PubMed Beyond the Basics—is designed to help you get the most out of the premier biomedical citation database. Join us and learn how to more effectively and efficiently search PubMed using advanced features such as Medical Subject Headings, filters, index terms, and the Related Citations and Clinical Queries functions to more easily find the research you need. In addition, we’ll show you how to personalize your PubMed experience via MyNCBI, which will allow you to create bibliographies, automated searches, and separate collections.

The session will be held once at the Dental Campus and once Downtown. If you plan to attend, please RSVP to dentlib@lsuhsc.edu.  But remember, we always welcome drop-in attendees. We hope to see you there!
