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

    1. First, a big thanks to everyone on the committee for their hard work in putting all of this month’s activities together. Great job!

      My semi-favorite title is “Scentsitivity: The Quarterly Journal of the National Association of Holistic Aromatherapy.” It became and is presently “Aromatherapy Journal,” which is definitely more academic-sounding, but not quite as exciting as the original title.

    2. Thanks Becky! Interesting titles: 3D Ethics, and 2006-2011 World Outlook for Manufacturing Cut & Sew Hats, Caps, Millinery & Hat Bodies from Purchased Fabric

    3. Kapped – Its a newstex of blogs that cover silly and odd news reports. Jay Leno could use it!

    4. Joe Plummer says:

      I like Jack Rackham (Calico Jack), Kazakhstan Mining Weekly, and Vanderbilt Hustler. The Haircare, Nail, & Make-up ones, with all the countries are good too. Gait & Posture sounds interesting. I wish it was NMLM every month! Thanks for all of the fun activities!

    5. I love the Kazahkstan titles and the ones from Tajekistan.

    6. I rather like “The Cabinet; a Repository of Polite Literature”. As opposed to rude literature?
      But, I have to give “The cougar pause” credit for creativity in title…
