Hirsh was in desperate need of a proper New Books section to live up to its name, and at long last it’s here. So the next time you’re on the 4th floor of the Sackler building, be sure to stop by and browse the latest titles that have been added to our collection.

As June (finally) brings us some summer weather, the Library would like to shine some light on a new development that’s been in the works behind-the-scenes.

While you’ve been taking exams and writing theses and starting your clerkship rotations, we’ve been getting ready to launch a new Integrated Library System and Discovery Platform! Which means that the way you search for items to check out, and the way we manage those items behind the desk is about to change.

On June 21, join us as we launch a new iteration of JumboSearch, a brand new way to search for books, articles, and other materials the library provides (including electronics, peripherals, and online books and journals).

You may notice some differences as you search, log in to your account, and access materials from off-campus, but everything you’re accustomed to will still be available. The only major difference is that if you were using Reading History in our current system, that information won’t migrate (so contact us for help!).

Watch this space for more information!

Questions? Contact us @ hhsl@tufts.edu.

You now have full access to the archives of the Handbook of Physiology electronically through Comprehensive Physiology.

From the publisher:

Comprising an archive of more than 30,000 pages of content from the American Physiological Society’s renowned Handbook of Physiology (HoP), which was published as a series of books from 1977 to 2008: presented here for the first time in digital format.

Comprehensive Physiology is the most authoritative and comprehensive collection of physiology information ever assembled, and uses the most powerful features of review journals and electronic reference works to cover the latest key developments in the field, through the most authoritative articles on the subjects covered.

This makes Comprehensive Physiology a valued reference work on the evolving science of physiology for both researchers and clinicians. It also provides a useful teaching tool for instructors and an informative resource for medical students and other students in the life and health sciences.

Sometimes you want to reuse an awesome image or figure you’ve found or want to find awesome images, such as this one:

Who’s Awesome? You’re Awesome!” by kjarrett is licensed under CC BY 2.0

But you’re not sure if you are allowed to.  Maybe it’s for a paper, a presentation, your website, your thesis, etc. – how do you know if you are allowed to use it for your intended purpose?  How do you know where to find appropriate images?

Well, have no fear, the Hirsh Health Sciences Library has created an interactive Image Reuse Tool to help you find images and/or determine if an image can be utilized for your intended use.  Let us help you wade through the copyright mire and come out awesome!
