September 19 – 23 is National Postdoc Appreciation Week (or NPAW, which is a great acronym).

Last year, Tufts had ~190 postdocs working in a variety of disciplines in Boston, Grafton and Medford.  Almost half of those postdocs were here on the Health Sciences Campus, so chances are you know a postdoc!  Take this opportunity to thank them for their tireless hard work and dedication to research.

As the Fall semester begins, the Hirsh Health Sciences Library is ready to launch the next series of Open Workshops! These workshops will cover many different research topics, such as learning how to begin a literature search, managing your citations with EndNote, learning about open access, and more. See our Open Workshops page for more information, including complete workshop descriptions and schedules.

We’d also like to introduce Workshops on Demand. If you and your colleagues are interested in a workshop, but cannot attend due to a conflicting schedule, you can now request a Workshop on Demand: just let us know what your group is interested in, and we’ll create a workshop that works for you!

If you have any questions about Open Workshops, or Workshops on Demand, please call the library service desk at 617-636-6705, or email us at hhsl@tufts.edu.

The Hirsh Health Sciences Library would like to warmly welcome incoming students at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy! During your orientation, you’ll have the opportunity to tour the Hirsh library and learn about the many ways we can support you.

During orientation, you’ll also get to meet your liaison librarian,  Amy LaVertu. If you have any questions, or need help, please don’t hesitate to contact  her (amy.lavertu@tufts.edu). Amy would be happy to meet with you over a cup of coffee to discuss how to take your research skills to the next level, so don’t be shy about getting in touch!

We want to tell you about some recent changes to pay-for-print here at the Hirsh Library.

First, you may have noticed that we now have several new laser printers! Yeah!

Second, what you may not have noticed, is that there has also been a change made to how you send documents to the printers at the Hirsh Library.

When you send a document to the printer, you will now be asked to provide your Tufts User Name (i.e. jsmith01)  and then create a name for the print job.

If you use a Guest Card, you will enter the 9-digit number printed on the front of the card and then create a name for the print job.

This what you will see when you send a document to the printer:

print_job

When you swipe your ID (or Guest Card) to release your print job, you will only see your print job listed. This means no more scrolling through other people’s print jobs!

If you have any questions about the changes to pay-for-print, please don’t hesitate to let us know at: hhsl@tufts.edu

Sparkle 100%

Hirsh has a collection of rare, centuries-old books and artifacts that have accumulated over the years—they are housed on the 6th floor of the Sackler building and are available to you for library use only.

This summer we undertook a most enjoyable clean-up project (for the book-lover/ history-nut) of the Special Collections room: re-classifying and cataloging hundreds of dusty, old books from their Library of Congress call numbers to National Library of Medicine, and creating new archival ID strips while conducting preservation tasks as needed.

Many thanks are due to Stack Assistants Rebecca Philio and Tiffany Wong for their help and support. The project has now reached completion and was a great success!

We’ve obtained two new LWW Health Library learning resources. Along with the Medical Education collection, you now have full access to the Clerkship/Clinical Rotations and Physician Assistant collections. LWW Health Library provides interactive online access to essential texts, images, specifically tailored real-life case studies and quiz banks. Here is a summary of the two new collections:

 

Clerkship/Clinical Rotations

Provides core texts needed for each of the core clerkship rotations; 39 highly recognized titles and clerkship-specific series for Internal Medicine, OB/GYN, Pediatrics, Surgery, Family Medicine, and Psychiatry. Plus exclusive, key titles for the clerkship market previously only available in print: Step-up, Recall, Blueprints, Shelf Life, BRS.

 

Physician Assistant

PA Core Education & PA Rotations/Specialties

Provides two collections of content for both years of the PA curriculum.

“Core” collection covers all anatomical and basic sciences required within the curriculum, including key gold standard titles. “Rotations/Specialties” collection covers the content needs of the clinical rotations requirement of the PA curriculum. The special search and navigation functionality allows users to search and browse content across all core rotations or within a specific rotation.
