Librarians conduct training at Autism Academy of SC

On May 4, 2016, Victor Jenkinson, Karen McMullen, and Roz McConnaughy conducted a training session for three staff members at the Autism Academy of South Carolina as part of the Health information access and technology enhancement project at the Autism Academy of South Carolina. The training session covered MedlinePlus, the Center for Disability Resources Library, and the InfoAble Portal. Project funds were used to purchase six workstations for the computer lab at the Autism Academy of SC.

This project has been funded in whole or in part with Federal funds from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Contract No. HHS-N-276-2011-00004-C with the University of Maryland Baltimore. (5/11/2016)

New Look for Journal Citation Reports

Journal Citation Reports (JCR), the database that helps you compare citation data for thousands of journals, has a new interface. In addition to a new look, there are three new metrics available: Journal Impact Factor Percentile, Normalized Eigenfactor Score, and % Articles in Citable Items. It is also easier to identify open access titles with the open access filter and badge. View the pre-recorded training videos and the Quick Reference Card for more detailed information. To learn how to find an impact factor for a journal, you can view our tutorial or handout.

Changes to E-Textbooks Page

The Library is pleased to announce a change to our E-Textbooks page.  Previously Library staff maintained a page with links to E-Textbook titles from a variety of sources such as publisher, aggregator, and government or public web sites.  Because of the sheer volume of titles for which we have acquired access, the list of titles had grown unwieldy.  We have created a new search interface for E-Textbooks that provides with you significantly better access to over 250,000 e-books currently available to the USC community.

New etextbook page image

Now when you follow the “E-Textbooks” link from the Library home page, you see a new page that features a simple search box.  Using this search interface you can quickly search the thousands of E-Text titles for which we have access.  The basic search is Keyword search, but after you search you can use the modify search box to calibrate the search results by date of publication or other data.

You will still find quick links to some of our more popular E-text resources, such as Clinical Key, Access Medicine, and Harrison’s Online.  But to search our E-text collections as a whole, please use this new search feature.  We feel this new feature will help you in your E-Textbook discovery.

Dr. Donald Wuori, retired School of Medicine Pediatrics faculty member and member of the Library Circle of Friends, has won a prestigious national photography award in the National Audubon Society’s 2015 Audubon Photography Contest.  With more than 2,300 photographers entered and nearly 9,000 submitted photos in the contest, only nine photos are selected for awards in the categories Amateur, Professional, Fine Art, and Youth.  Dr. Wuori won the Amateur category which is defined as earning less than $5,000 per year producing or selling photographs.  His winning shot is of a male warbler feeding a female warbler in her nest and was taken in the Audubon Sanctuary at Francis Beidler Forest in Harleyville, South Carolina. 

Visit the National Audubon Society website to see Dr. Wuori’s award-winning photo, read about how he captured the shot, and view the other winning photographs.

Dr. Wuori’s winning print is on display along with other winning photos from the Audubon and Nature’s Best Photo contests at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington DC through Fall 2016.

Journal Cancellations for 2016

Due to continuing budget constraints, the Library has to undertake another round of print and electronic journal cancellations effective January 2016. The Library conducted a journal collection analysis to identify titles for potential cancellation. Criteria used for the analysis included usage, impact factor/ranking, renewal cost, availability from Thomas Cooper Library, and relevance to School of Medicine programs. For the complete list of proposed cancellations, see below.
After the cancellations become effective, access to back files may still be available due to the licensing agreements with vendors/publishers or via alternate means. Please go to our e-journal management system, Full Text Finder, to check on the coverage. For articles that are no longer available, please request them via interlibrary loan at our ILL Express page.

Library Hosting "The Literature of Prescription: Charlotte Perkins Gilman and the Yellow Wall-Paper" Traveling Exhibit

Woman at a desk Literature of Prescription: Charlotte Perkins Gilman and The Yellow Wall-Paper

The University of South Carolina School of Medicine Library is hosting the National Library of Medicine’s traveling exhibit, The Literature of Prescription: Charlotte Perkins Gilman and the Yellow Wall-Paper. The six-banner exhibit will be displayed from August 25th, 2015, through October 31st, 2015.

From the exhibit: “In the late nineteenth century, at a time when women were challenging traditional ideas about gender that excluded them from political and intellectual life, medical and scientific experts drew on notions of female weakness to justify inequality between the sexes. Artist and writer Charlotte Perkins Gilman, who was discouraged from pursuing a career to preserve her health, rejected these ideas in a terrifying short story titled “The Yellow Wall-Paper.” The famous tale served as an indictment of the medical profession and the social conventions restricting women’s professional and creative opportunities.”

New Look For Library Catalog Starting January 2015

The SOM Library is pleased to announce a change in our online Catalog. Beginning in January 2015, you’ll notice some changes when you click on the Library Catalog link on the Library’s web site. The new catalog works very much the same as the old. They both run on the same platform, Millennium by Innovative Interfaces, Inc. So you see no loss of functionality. In fact, you’ll quickly notice some new features such as:

  • Book covers and a newer, cleaner design.
  • You can now quickly broaden your catalog search from the SOM library to other USC campuses, including ALL Campuses. Furthermore, intra-campus lending (USC campuses) is greatly facilitated by this new arrangement. You can request titles directly, without going to PASCAL Delivers.
  • The inclusion of over a 250,000 statewide e-book titles from ebrary and the EBSCO Academic Ebook collection. These will now appear in your search results, greatly expanding the Library's holdings.
  • Please Note, you’ll now need to use your USC Network Username (the same used for Blackboard) or your University ID barcode number to access your patron record. In your patron record, you can manage holds, renew checkouts, see charges, and other functions.

Again, this is a fairly innocuous change at present, but it will allow us to more fully participate in USC system-wide resources in the future. More to come on that… (1/5/2015)
