  • The option of sharing your entire EndNote library, references, PDFs and annotations with up to 100 people.
  • Allows for people sharing a library add to, annotate and use the library at the same time as well as keep track of who is making what changes to the shared library and when.

EndNote x8 is compatible with Mac Sierra OS and MS Word 2016.

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!

Hello everyone, it’s Leo here. Happy Valentine’s Day! It’s convenient that day is today, because I’m here to talk to you about a good friend of mine, whom I think you could really learn to love if you gave it a chance. I am, of course, referring to Dongle.

2017-02-13 19.27.01

Dongle is a good friend of mine. We go way back! We’ve been through a lot together, and I want to see it set up with someone who will treat it right, and give it the study sessions it deserves.

Dongle stands 5.5 inches tall (or 14 centimeters, if you prefer metric). It weighs in as “so light that I don’t even need muscles to lift it,” and it has a nice slim profile, which can be seen from any angle you happen to be viewing it from.

2017-02-13 19.21.46

Dongle has two ports: a Mini DisplayPort on its smaller end, and a VGA port on the wider side. The Mini DisplayPort plug is made to slide right into your computer, and the VGA port holds onto a VGA cable on the other end, so you can share images on your computer with the projector and the room at large. Fun fact: Dongle works with all of the laptops we have on Reserve!

Because Dongle is as useful as it is convenient.

And, naturally, Dongle goes by many names. “VGA Adapter,” “laptop adapter,” “projector cable,” “that thing for my computer so I can do a presentation,” “something that plugs into my Mac for the projector but I don’t know what it’s called but I know you have it” – Dongle is not picky, and will answer to all of those names.

So this Valentine’s Day (and any other day of the year, really), why don’t you come by the Library Service Desk on the 4th floor of Sackler and give Dongle a try? Who knows, this could be the start of a beautiful academic partnership.

2017-02-13 19.22.01

Peace, love, and good grades,
Leo

Do you find yourself looking through the catalog at Hirsh Health Sciences Library, thinking how great it would be if we owned that one book that you and a few classmates really needed? Have you found yourself in need of study materials, but the ones we have are outdated? Think there’s just a great database we should try? Well you’re in luck!

If you head on to Recommend a Purchase, you too can suggest material for the library to buy! It’s not just books, either – journal subscriptions, databases, models – HHSL is always looking to support our patrons in as many ways as we can, and this is a perfect way you can help us with that mission!

Plus, if you fill that form out, you could very well be the first person to find out about this new resource we have, and who doesn’t like being the first to something new?

You can always check in with us at 617-636-6706 if you have any questions about what we may or may not have in the library. But otherwise, we look forward to seeing all of your suggestions!
