Dig the Library: Week 4: Shindig! (and e-journals)

Well, we?óÔé¼Ôäóve reached the end of National Medical Librarians Month, and as things draw to a close we?óÔé¼Ôäód like to focus on one more new resource with which you are already familiar: the new and improved E-journals list.

Let?óÔé¼Ôäós review the advice and words of caution Becky provided us when it came out:

  • Due to various reasons, the list is not a comprehensive listing of the electronic journals we have, but it?óÔé¼Ôäós relatively close.
  • Always check INNOPAC if you want to be 100% sure we don?óÔé¼Ôäót own a title. (There?óÔé¼Ôäós even a button for this on the list.)
  • The list includes all those strange non-health related titles we get through LOUIS, which is an advantage if someone comes looking for Harvard Business Journal or Consumer Reports
  • The list requires login to WAM for off campus access.
  • Some MD Consult titles may prompt for your lsuhsc username & password (Lancet, etc)
  • You don?óÔé¼Ôäót have to put in a full journal title to search, however, searching MEDLINE abbreviations may give you trouble
  • There is a short e-journals tutorial
  • Task for Week 4:

  • What?óÔé¼Ôäós the strangest journal name on list? Post yours in the comments
  • Display week 4 NMLM

    New FCOI tutorial from NIH available

    NIH has announced the availability of a Web-based tutorial related to the “Responsibility of Applicants for Promoting Objectivity in Research for which PHS Funding is Sought.”

    In its release notice, NIH states, “As part of NIH’s continuing educational efforts to improve and enhance compliance with Financial Conflict of Interest (FCOI) requirements, we developed a Web-based tutorial which reviews the requirements of and the responsibilities for compliance with these Federal FCOI regulations. The tutorial is designed for use by Institutional officials responsible for managing NIH funded grants, cooperative agreements and/or contracts and for individuals who are responsible for the design, conduct or reporting of NIH-supported research.
    We hope this tutorial proves to be a useful educational tool and strongly encourage all NIH-funded investigators to take it.”

    The tutorial may be accessed on the Office of Extramural Research, Conflict of Interest Page.
