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

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.

Need help preparing your med school application? Think you want to go into consulting, but not really sure what that means? Terrified at the thought of owning your own dental practice? Check out our new Business & Careers section!

While we can’t tell you whether or not to submit a letter of recommendation from your mom with your med school application (probably not), what consultants actually do, or how to run a dental practice, we do have resources that can help you answer these questions.

Located behind the seating section next to the Library Service Desk on Sackler 4, the Business & Career section features books on applying to med school, life after grad school, and marketing for scientists and dentists. Titles include:  Career Opportunities for Biomedical Scientists, Mastering Public Health: Essential Skills for Effective Practice, and What They Don’t Teach You In Dental School.

All books may be checked out for 4 weeks. Don’t see a business or career book that you want to read? Let us know by recommending a purchase.

Exciting things have been happening on our 5th, 6th, and 7th floors! We’re working on increasing the number of study spots in the library as well as giving you more flexible work space options.

Here are some of our latest updates:

We added 32 new study carrels to the 7th floor along with 40 new chairs.  We’re awaiting the delivery of 8 more carrels for the 6th floor. The 7th floor carrels will have desktop power soon. For now, you can drop your cords through the hole on the top and plug in at the outlet under each desk.

We’ve also added two new standing desks–one on 5 and one on 6! The desk on 5 currently only works as a regular desk, but the new adjusting mechanism is coming soon.

6thfloor standing

Tufts carpenters have built a beautiful standing-height counter on the 5th floor. We’re waiting for the power strip to be delivered and, once it’s in, you’ll be able to plug your devices in at counter level.

You might call it a cult following – those of you “in the know” about ordering books for free from Boston Library Consortium (BLC) libraries through WorldCat Local.  Well, we’re bringing things mainstream!

Starting June 1st, all books, DVDs, CDs, etc. – basically anything that gets returned to the library (so not pdfs), which we are able to order from a BLC library is free of charge to you.  And there is just one place to order all your interlibrary loan requests, your ILLiad account.   You no longer need to start the request for BLC items from WorldCat Local in order for it to be free.  (Don’t worry you are still way underground cool).
