The Case Files Collection from Access Medicine has recently had a number of updates, which makes this a good time to review this useful resource. With cases from Basic Science, Clinical Rotation, and Post-Graduate, the collection now includes Case Files Podcasts found in the global navigation bar under “Podcasts/Audio.” They are produced by the primary author of the series, Dr. Eugene C. Toy, MD and highlight key concepts from the cases found in the collection in short downloadable episodes.

Below is an overview of the Case Files series if you are not familiar with the collection:Case Files Info

Here are the direct links to our catalog for each subject in the collection:

Happy 2020!

Each January brings an array of welcome changes…maybe you’re giving that whole Dry January thing a try (which might decrease alcohol consumption later in the year), or it’s a Whole30 for you, or maybe this is the year you run that marathon, since that new study in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology shows that those training for their first marathon may experience a reduction in vascular age.

But why do any of that when you can simply revel in the Medline Data Changes for 2020! Cheers!

So what sort of changes does 2020 bring to Medical Subject Headings?

97 terms were changed or deleted and replaced with current terminology (for example, Swaziland is now Eswatini, reflecting the official name change of the nation in 2018).

293 new MeSH headings and 2 new publication types joined the thesaurus this year as well. Some new headings of particular note to HHSL researchers include:

You can review the full list here: https://www.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/2020/download/2020NewMeSHheadingsSingleColumn.pdf.

Our Graphic Medicine collection has been steadily growing with a number of new releases, and some old favorites that we’ve recently acquired. The HHSL Graphic Medicine collection can be found on the 4th floor across from the Library Service desk. Since the section’s inception in the summer of 2018, the collection has grown to include titles dealing with a wide range of healthcare issues; including, addiction, Alzheimer’s, bipolar disorder, breast cancer, down syndrome, epilepsy, LGBTQ health, OCD, and Parkinson’s disease. Graphic Medicine divulges the lived experiences of patients dealing with illness, as well as personal accounts of the challenges faced by medical professionals.

Below is a list of recent titles added to our collection:

I had the pleasure of discussing the value of Graphic Medicine as a format in healthcare communication at the Charleston Library Conference this past fall. The poster presentation is available at this link.

If there is a Graphic Medicine novel that we don’t have which you would like to read, please let us know by recommending a purchase.

RefWorks logo

Do you currently have a RefWorks account? If yes, you may have received an email reminding you that RefWorks will no longer be available after December 31st. This means that, even if you haven’t used RefWorks in awhile, any references you currently have on RefWorks will no longer be accessible!  Yikes! The good news is that you still have a few more weeks to transfer your references from your RefWorks account into another citation manager – and we’re here to help you do it!

To get started, please take a look at our Refworks guide: https://researchguides.library.tufts.edu/refworks This guide lists citation managers that are available to you and instructions for how to migrate your references from RefWorks into a new citation manager. In addition to the guide, you are welcome to make an appointment with an Hirsh librarian for help with migrating references. All you need to do is schedule a consultation with us: https://hirshlibrary.tufts.edu/eform/submit/schedule-a-consultation

So, as they might say at your local pub, “Last call for RefWorks!  We don’t care which citation manager you go with, but you can’t stay with RefWorks!”

This Fall, we will be featuring a series of posts spotlighting different citation management tools. What is a citation management tool ? Citation management tools  are programs that enable you to keep track of your research, manage citations, generate bibliographies in various citation styles (e.g., APA, JAMA, Chicago), and organize PDFs. These tools work directly with word processing programs such as Word and Google Docs. They may also allow you to directly download and edit article PDFs, and insert figures with captions into manuscripts. Popular citation management tools includes EndNote, Mendeley and Zotero.

Our first post in this series will focus on the fabulous and free citation tool, Zotero!  As with other citation tools, Zotero allows you to collect and organize references, generate bibliographies and insert citations into a manuscript.

Additionally, Zotero allows you to:

  • import references from research databases and websites directly from your web browser of choice
  • automatically download PDFs that are featured on a website
  • sync  references between different computers and collaborate with other researchers by creating a Zotero account on zotero.org
  • store up to 3MB free of PDFs attached to references
  • merge duplicate references
  • insert citations into Libre Office

Zotero is freely available to all; you do not need a Tufts University UTLN and password or library login to download Zotero!

Want too learn more about Zotero and how to get started?
