If you’re like me, you may not be much of a cook.  I tend to live on pasta and sandwiches.  However, there is one dish that my family has made over the years that even I can make.  It is zucchini pie (well it’s more like a quiche).  If you love cheese, feel free to pile it on.  I’ve also tried variations with eggplant!  Enjoy!   – Becky

ZUCCHINI PIE

1  8 oz. package of crescent rolls

2 or 3 medium zucchini, thinly sliced

3  T. margarine

1  clove of crushed garlic or 1 tsp. powder

salt and pepper

2 beaten eggs

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

parsley

Parmesan cheese

Separate rolls into triangles and place in 9″ pie plate.  Saute zucchini in margarine until soft – drain.  Mix eggs, cheese, parsley, salt, pepper, and garlic.  Pour over top of zucchini (in pie plate) and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.  Bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes.  Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting.

I am a big fan of Elise Bauer and her blog: SimplyRecipes.  They are easy, no fuss and good. I bring my lunch everyday so at least once a week I need to make something that has leftovers. This one looks like a bit of a pain, but it is easy and you can modify it to suit your needs. Don’t like beef? Use ground pork, turkey or tofu. Add what veggies you have in the fridge. Don’t want to make cornbread from scratch? Buy a box.  Top it all off with salsa, sour cream and guacamole. I feel warmer already.  – Amy, Research & Instruction Librarian

We’d like to give a warm welcome to Berika Williams, who has just joined us as the new Emerging Technologies and Web Librarian here at Hirsh.  She comes to us from Victoria College, University of Houston where she was the Web Services Librarian.  When she’s not at the library she enjoys cycling, web design, sewing, music, and screenwriting!  Speaking of screenwriting, she was once the production secretary for the pilot season of  “Texas Justice”, a television court show that ran for a few seasons on Fox!  She loves Boston so far and is looking forward to enhancing  library technology used to support the medical programs at Tufts.  If you see her around the library please feel free to say hello and welcome her to Tufts.

Does printing at the library sometimes get you down?  We understand your frustrations.  To show our support we’ve created a music video for you, “Used the Wrong Stapler”.

Enjoy!

Thanks to all who participated, especially our stars, Lee Replogle M’16 and Shiraz Ghanimian M’16. Also, congratulations to The Marians on their debut!

It’s nearing the end of term and what better way to expand your research skills than to attend an HHSL Open Workshop?!

The next one is Wednesday, December 18th from 12-1pm in Sackler 510.  This session will cover the ins and outs of Web of Knowledge, including:

  • how to construct a keyword search
  • how finding one good article on a topic can lead to other articles on the same thing
  • and how to find out who else is working on your topic of interest

It’s sure to become your new best friend for research! Space is limited, so please REGISTER HERE by December 17th, 2013.

You may sign up and view future workshops here.  We hope to see you there!

 

 

Only see an abstract in PubMed?  We still may have your article!

There are multiple ways to find out if an article you are trying to locate is available through Tufts.  One great place to start is the Tufts Catalog (link located in the top left of the  homepage).  You can search by journal title and see what subscriptions we have for electronic journals as well as print.  Print periodicals are located on the 7th floor, except for the current year which is shelved on the 4th floor. Sometimes the catalog will say that the years you want are in “Jaharis Storage” this means that you need to fill out a request to have the volume brought over to the library. You can find the request form HERE and you will receive an email when it arrives at the 4th floor desk.

If you only have an abbreviated title then the single citation matcher in PubMed will help.  Start filling out the citation HERE and the full title will become visible.

Another method of searching is to follow our e-journals link.  You can search by title or browse alphabetically through Serial Solutions.

If you require assistance please don’t hesitate to stop by the library service desk on the 4th floor of Sackler.  We’ll be happy to help!

 

 

The Hirsh Health Sciences Library would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving as well as a wonderful start to the holiday season!
