“Library in the Medical and Dental School Building”, 1907. From the Tufts Digital Library: http://hdl.handle.net/10427/38004

Everyone here at the Hirsh Health Sciences Library would like to welcome the new medical class of 2021! We look forward to meeting you at library orientation today, August 8th, where you’ll get the chance to learn more about the library and all the resources that are available to you. (We’ve had a few renovations since the photo above was taken in 1907).

Your pre-clinical liaison librarian is Christina Heinrich, so don’t hesitate to contact her if you have any questions or need any library help!

It’s never too late for learning! If you will be around campus this summer and would like to enhance your research skills, we’d be happy to help! The Hirsh Library offers “Workshops on Demand”. We will work with you to create a workshop to meet you (and your group’s) specific learning needs.

To learn more about “Workshops on Demand” visit: http://hirshlibrary.tufts.edu/services/open-workshops/workshops-on-demand

Also, check out the following list of resources for learning new skills, or brushing up some old ones:

Ever wonder what is lurking in the dark alcove behind the library service desk? What skeletons do we have in that space beneath the stairs? Here is a comprehensive list, all available for check-out:

  • 2 full (plastic) skeletons, named Leo and Theo
  • 1 head and neck model
  • 1 eyeball
  • 1 heart
  • 1 armarmleg

  • 1 dental development model
  • 6 sets of teeth
  • 8 full (plastic) skulls
  • 2 full (real) skulls
  • 2 half (real) skulls with brains

You may also see a full list with pictures on our website.
As always, you can check any of these body parts and accessories out for four hours at a time. Just ask for the extremity of your choice!

 

Dental board and licensure prep books don’t come out very often but when they do it’s exciting. We’ve just completed acquiring and cataloging four new ones for you.

If you were planning to take the NERB licensure exam, please be sure to note that NERB has changed its name to the CDCA. As far as we are aware, you should be able to also prepare using the old NERB prep materials, but we got the brand-new CDCA prep book for you, because that’s just how we roll.

All board and licensure prep books that are not electronic are on reserve and may be checked out at the Service Desk on Sackler 4 for four hours at a time.

Our brand-new prep books are listed below, but you can also always check out our Dental Board Review Research Guide for the complete list.

As always, if you have any suggestions for prep books that you would like us to have, please feel free to suggest them to us by either filling out the form here or by letting your liaison librarian know. (The dental liaison is me, Amanda Nevius).

Post by: Amanda Nevius

Have you heard of Dental Central? It’s a hub for community members to view or broadcast community and cultural events to enhance dental public health.

If you are a member of TUSDM’s community, check it out for volunteering opportunities or to post your own upcoming event in need of volunteers. This is also the place to order outreach supplies like toothbrushes.

If you’re a member of another group on the health sciences campus, consider which of your upcoming events could benefit from the inter-professional presence and assistance of TUSDM community members and consider posting them there.

Also be sure to check out Dental Central’s two hashtags #tusdm and #dentalcentral.

 

ok_printer

We want to tell you about some recent changes to pay-for-print here at the Hirsh Library.

First, you may have noticed that we now have several new laser printers! Yeah!

Second, what you may not have noticed, is that there has also been a change made to how you send documents to the printers at the Hirsh Library.

When you send a document to the printer, you will now be asked to provide your Tufts User Name (i.e. jsmith01)  and then create a name for the print job.

If you use a Guest Card, you will enter the 9-digit number printed on the front of the card and then create a name for the print job.

This what you will see when you send a document to the printer:

print_job

When you swipe your ID (or Guest Card) to release your print job, you will only see your print job listed. This means no more scrolling through other people’s print jobs!

If you have any questions about the changes to pay-for-print, please don’t hesitate to let us know at: hhsl@tufts.edu
