UT HSC Screens Ed. Video for CA-MRSA

Earlier in July, the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio received a CTSA (Clinical Translational Science Award) Community Engagement Project Award from the South Central Region of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine for their 12-minute educational video to improve awareness of the skin staph infection CA-MRSA.

According to the UTHSC website, “The primary goal of this project was to promote the role of librarians as partners with CTSA-funded researchers in production of community focused educational materials.  Partnering with librarians on the project were researchers from the Pharmacotherapy Education & Research Center and the South Central Area Health Education Center.”

FASEB Shows Where NIH Funding Goes

The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) recently updated their NIH State Information Factsheets which provide information on NIH funding in each state. The factsheets are presented as easy to read and print PDFs with a summary of funding information and how this funding benefits the economy of the state.

According to The National Institutes of Health (NIH) website, NIH-funded medical research has significant positive impacted the health of Americans today through its funding of initiatives like Integra LifeSciences’ Matrix Wound Dressing, an artificial skin for burn victims.

More than 80 percent of the NIH’s budget goes to over 300,000 research personnel at more than 2,500 universities and research institutions throughout the United States. In addition, about 6,000 scientists work in NIH’s own Intramural Research laboratories.

NIH’s mission is to seek fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and apply that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce the burdens of illness and disability.

Technology Learning @ the Library

Start the new academic year by learning how technology can help make your life easier. The Library Lunchtime Learning program will be coming to the downtown campus for a Hands-on Technology Expo on July 21. We’ll be rounding up some of your favorite gadgets, demonstrating how to access library resources from your mobile device, and talking about education apps. Bring your own tech tool too!

If you plan to attend, please RSVP to rpremo@lsuhsc.edu. However, we welcome drop-ins. And if you can’t make it, send an e-mail and we’ll send the handouts to you.

It Came From the Stacks

In honor of everyone using their time this summer to study for their board exams, this month’s “It Came From the Stacks” post is about a board review text.  However, you might not want to use it for your boards as it was published 107 years ago.

Underwood & Gabell’s Aids to Dental Surgery is one volume in their “Student’s aids series.”  The book is small and as the author states in his preface, “condense(s) into a concise form that department of the science of dental surgery which is capable of such treatment.”  Underwood states that the books concentrates on matters which are likely to be included on examinations.  “If the book smooths the path of any of the large body of dental students, with whose education and welfare my daily work has been and is so largely concerned, I shall feel that its object has been accomplished.”

Within this slim, 126 page book, the authors cover the breadth of dental science including bacteriology, hygiene, injuries and illnesses of the pulp, periosteum, mucous membrane, and jaws, extraction of teeth, and diseases arising from diseases of the teeth and gums.

LSUHSC-NO Libraries is lucky enough to hold one of only 12 copies of this work in the world.  If you’d like to come take a look at this book or any of our more recent board review materials, please contact us or stop in to see us.

NIH Launches 3D Print Exchange

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) recently launched the NIH 3D Print Exchange, a public website that enables users to share, download, and edit 3D print files related to health and science. These files can be used, for example, to print custom laboratory equipment and models of bacteria and human anatomy. The NIH 3D Print Exchange also provides video tutorials and additional resources with instruction on 3D modeling software to enable users to customize and create 3D prints.

Creating a model for print can take hours, even for an experienced user. 3D Print Exchange has created novel, web-based tools that allow users to generate high-quality and scientifically-relevant 3D-printable models in only minutes, simply by uploading a file or typing in a database accession code. Users can submit models to the 3D Print Exchange database and openly share tips and software tricks in the discussion forum.
