Join us Tuesday, June 17 from 12-1pm in Sackler 514 for a Lunch and Learn about the Biomedical & Life Sciences Collection from Henry Stewart Talks. The Collection, which offers over 1, 500 seminar-style talks from top researchers, is an excellent resource for teaching or CME and is available to the Tufts community through the library catalog.

Beth Cohen. Senior Account Manager and E-Learning Consultant will cover:

Henry Stewart Talks

  • A general view of e-resources and the changes taking place today
  • A detailed tour of the website, including how to use special features, functions, and services provided
  • The possibilities that exist for e-learning, using the talks in class, and embedding them in curriculum
  • How to easily integrate the talks in your virtual learning space
  • Options for earning CME credits

While the  presentation will be geared more towards faculty and staff use, students are welcome to attend. Please RSVP by June 16.

We hope to see you there! But if you can’t make it, be sure to explore the collection!

Please welcome our new summer intern, June Thammasnong.  Originally from California, she has recently graduated from the Simmons MLIS program and will be helping us with circulation, reference, and teaching.  Her favorite thing about being a librarian is connecting people with information resources as well as making connections with people themselves.  Outside of work she likes to hunt for ice cream by bicycle and travel whenever she gets a chance.  Her last big adventure was in New Zealand but lately she’s been discovering the US.  Please give her a warm welcome when you see her around the library.

Please join us in welcoming our new head of Research and Instruction, Becky Morin.  She comes to us from the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco where she was head librarian.  A Salem native, she is very excited to be back in Massachusetts and is thrilled to be back home with her beloved Boston Bruins!  When not at work she enjoys distance running, cycling, cooking, and hanging out with her three misfit rescue dogs.  If you see her around the library please feel free to say hello.

Old Housing in Mound Bayou Demonstration of an Interesting Case by Dr. Siegfried Thannhauser

We are pleased to announce the creation of two research guides that highlight some of our archival materials.  Funded by an Express Library Digitization Award from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine New England Region, they contain images and links to full-text articles from the library’s collection of materials regarding Tufts’ role in the community-health- center movement and the Jewish physicians who joined the Tufts faculty as a result of the “German Brain Drain” in World War II.  We encourage you to visit these guides and experience the rich history of Tufts University School of Medicine!

Boston to Mound Bayou: Columbia Point & Delta Health Center
With its establishment of the Columbia Point Health Center (Boston, MA) and Delta Health Center, Inc. (Mound Bayou, MS), Tufts helped launch the community-health-center movement.  This guide features background information about the community-health-center movement as well as materials related to the pioneering work of TUSM faculty members H. Jack Geiger and Count Gibson.

Excellence in Exile: German Emigré Physicians at TUSM
The materials in this guide pertain to the following TUSM faculty members: Alice Ettinger, Joseph Igershiemer, Gerhard Schmidt, and Siegfried Thannhauser.

TUSM students in the Competency-Based Apprenticeship in Primary Care program recently put a suite of selected apps and mobilized websites into a folder on their smartphones.

CAP workshop 2014 Wayne Altman

Course directors Wayne Altman, MD, and Sarah Rosenberg-Scott, MD, introduced Mobile Medicards and discussed the usefulness of their top five tools for information at the point of care.  Librarian Berika Williams created a presentation on how to install apps for DynaMed, STAT!Ref, Epocrates, the Agency for Healthcare Quality and Research’s Electronic Preventive Services Selector, and the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine’s SHOTs.

Our CAP Apps & Links Guide gives instructions on how to access these resources and various calculators, drug resources, evidence-based compendia, and textbooks. We trust that these resources will enable our students to share their research with their preceptors and seem brighter than ever.  Contact us if you need an access code or help installing any of our licensed resources on your mobile device.  We look forward to hearing feedback on your favorite apps and mobile links.
