ScienceDirect EBS Collection: French Health Sciences and German Medical

Parlez vous francais? Sprechen sie Deutsch? If you can understand those questions and can answer yes, then you may want to explore our last-but-not-least groups from the ScienceDirect EBS Collection.

The French Health Sciences category contains an array of medical topics, all in French.  You will find ebooks on physical therapy, anesthesia, cardiology, and more specialties, which will offer you a chance to hone your language skills while you glean knowledge about your chosen subject.

The same can be said of the category German Medical.  There seem to be quite a few books on orthopedics and psychiatry.  I’m just guessing though because I speak neither French nor German.  At any rate, you might want to take these categories for a spin and test your language skills.

This concludes the weekly spotlight on the ScienceDirect EBS Collection.  This varied group of ebooks will be available until June of this year.  At that time, we will be reviewing the usage of the collection and keeping the most used texts.  This is your opportunity to let us know what you want and need to be able to access.  By viewing a book you are voting for it.  And if there is a particular ebook in the collection you feel strongly about, let us know.  We appreciate your input about these ScienceDirect offerings!

ScienceDirect EBS Collection: Energy

This week we are highlighting the Energy category of the ScienceDirect EBS Collection.

At first glance there doesn’t seem to be too much of interest that would be applicable to our field here at LSUHSC.  But there are some gems that might interest the eco-minded researcher and chemist.  There are a wealth of ebooks on the subject of renewable energy, and some of the texts examining research in the petrochemical field may have health-related implications here in our neck of the woods.  So don’t write this category off.  You may find just what you need for that last piece of the puzzle.

Please take some time to review all of the categories in this valuable collection.  We will only have this opportunity until the end of June.  Then most of these selections will be disappearing.  After the review period, we will only be retaining those texts that receive the most hits.

ScienceDirect EBS Collection: Neuroscience

As we wind down our exploration of the ScienceDirect EBS Collection, we are exploring the category of Neuroscience. This group is especially interesting. The ebooks here cover a wide range of applications in the neurosciences field.  Subjects range from Alzheimer’s and pain management to stress and substance abuse.

Researchers involved in the field of Geriatrics might want to review Nutritional Modulators of Pain in the Aging Population, edited by Ronald Ross Watson and Sherma Zibadi, or Physical Activity and the Aging Brain, edited by Ronald Ross Watson.

Substance abuse researchers might be interested in The Complex Connection Between Cannabis and Schizophrenia, edited by Michael T. Compton, or The Neuroscience of Cocaine, edited  by Victor R. Preedy.

Dealing with stress (and who isn’t these days)? You might want to check out Stress: Concepts, Cognition, Emotion, and Behavior, edited by George Fink, or Neuroscience of Pain, Stress, and Emotion, edited by Magne Arve Flaten and Mustafa al’Absi.

As you can see, this category has it all.  Take it for a spin and see if you can’t find something that is relevant to your particular interests.  But don’t wait too long.  These ebooks will only be available until the end of June.  After that, only the most viewed selections will be added to our permanent ebook collection.

ScienceDirect EBS Collection: Finance and Mathematics

As tax time approaches, thoughts turn to the complexities of finance and mathematics. Or maybe not. At any rate, this week will focus on two related categories of the ScienceDirect EBS Collection.

The Finance group of ebooks contains a selection of books relating to funding for research in pharmaceuticals and health services. If you are considering expanding your horizons in 2018, you might want to take a look at Global Mobility of Research Scientists: The Economics of Who Goes Where and Why.

And – heads up biostatistics people! – the Mathematics category may be of particular interest to you. There are several tomes on statistics and data mining, as well as texts relating to mathematical applications in simulation modeling.

So give these categories some of your attention. This special collection is available until the end of June. After that, only the most viewed books will be added to our permanent ebook collection. Your participation is critical to our selection process.

ScienceDirect EBS Collection: Engineering and Materials Science

This week we are highlighting two categories from the ScienceDirect EBS Collection. Engineering and Materials Science are related categories encompassing the biomedical and chemical fields.

Amongst the tomes on asphalt, aircraft, and bridge construction in the Engineering group, you will find such ebooks as Healthcare Technology Management Systems, Mechanical Circulatory & Respiratory Support, and Mechanical Testing of Orthopaedic Implants.  You might also want to check out the multi-dimensional selections such as 3D Bioprinting & Nanotechnology in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine.

Nanomedicine, nanotechnology, and tissue engineering are also on display in the Materials Science category.  There are several texts relating to chemical engineering developments and you might want to review Antimicrobial Nanoarchitectonics: From Synthesis to Applications, which brings together research in antimicrobial nanoparticles, especially in reducing the side effects of antibiotics, decreasing their pharmacological effect, and improving the solubility and stability of antimicrobials.

So please take some time to explore the offerings in these two groups.  Your participation is important as most of the ebooks in this package will be disappearing at the end of June 2018.  Only the books with the most usage will be added to our permanent electronic collection.
