We’ve got Dental Decks, Parts 1 and 2! Each section can be checked out separately at the Circulation Desk on the 4th floor of the Sackler Building.

Dental Decks. Part 1 : NDB Exam.

Dental Decks is a great study resource designed for students to retain the biomedical and dental science information they have learned. Use this easy-to-use flash card series to review all areas covered in the National Board of Dental Examination (NBDE) and National Board Dental Hygiene Examination (NBDHE). Each deck contains more than 1,000 flash cards with a question on the front and a detailed, comprehensive answer and topic review on the back, PLUS a test booklet that contains case studies, which can help students familiarize themselves with the exam format.

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.
