Zika virus. The lead crisis in Flint, Michigan. Soaring rates of childhood obesity. Climate change.

These are just some of the headlines we encounter every day that remind us of how  critical a robust and resilient public health infrastructure is for our future.

This week is National Public Health Week 2016 (http://www.nphw.org/). An initiative of the American Public Health Association (http://www.apha.org/), National Public Health Week was established to “as a time to recognize the contributions of public health and highlight issues that are important to improving our nation.”

In honor of National Public Health Week, the Hirsh library would like to highlight its resources that help support public health. The Hirsh library is also presenting a Public Health Tools Workshop that will introduce you to resources to help you with public and community health-related research, including Healthy People 2020, APHA Public Health Policy Database and TRoPHI (Trials Register of Promoting Health Interventions).

We hope that you will attend the workshop or check out our public health research guides. After all,  public health is your health!

It’s that time again! The end of the semester is nigh and with it research projects, final exams and group assignments are looming. Feeling overwhelmed? Desperate? Don’t know where how or where to start? The Hirsh Library’s librarian Liaison Program can help!

The Hirsh Library’s Liaison Program provides a ‘point-person’ for the academic programs and clinical departments on the Tufts’ health sciences campus. What can your librarian liaison do for you?

For starters, your librarian liaison can help you:

  • identify resources for your particular topic, especially resources beyond article databases
  • create effective and efficient search strategies for databases like PubMed and Web of Science
  • discern what tool is right for you to help manage your citations (i.e., EndNote, Zotero, Mendeley) and providing instructions to get you started
  • track down statistical data for research projects and help you manage your own data

Sounds pretty great, right? It is! Now, go find out who’s you librarian liaison and then get in touch with them!

And one more thing – if you are preparing for dental, medical or physician assistance board exams, then you must check out the following Hirsh Library guides:

COS Easter Vigil 100403_006

This Sunday is the great feast of Easter, the high point of the Christian calendar (nb: Eastern Orthodox Christians will celebrate Easter on Sunday, May 1). Easter celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ and ends the season of Lent, which began on February 10.

The final week of Lent is called “Holy Week” and the three days preceding Easter are referred to the “Holy Triduum,”  which consists of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday. These three days  which recount the final three days of Jesus’ life are marked by Christians around the world by religious observances, fasting,  pilgrimages, and acts of repentance.

Ending this intense period of devotion is the  Great Vigil on the eve of Easter. Christian communities around the world celebrate Easter Sunday with grand religious processions, the giving of small gifts, and feasts with family and friends. If you are celebrating Easter, we wish a  most joyous feast!

Congratulations class of 2016 on your match!  Match Day is an annual event that began in 1952 where medical students learn where they will have their residency program.  On Friday, March 18th the service desk on the 4th floor will be closed from 11am-2pm to accommodate celebrations for this event.  All other floors will be open for study.  Please plan on obtaining laptops and reserve items prior to 11am if you need them.  Thank you!

March 15th…the day to settle debts…possibly a day to dress a man like a goat and run him out of town...and famously, the day Julius Caesar was brutally stabbed to death before the Roman Senate in 44 BC.

Lots of bad things have happened on the Ides of March, and we know you don’t need more stress in your life. So come visit the Library Service Desk on Sackler 4 Wednesday 3/16 and Thursday 3/17, starting at noon, and unwind with some quality craft time!

This month, we’re featuring paper bag puppets and pompom study buddies. Come get your craft on with us. Maybe if Brutus took a craft break, he wouldn’t have felt so…stabby.

 

We’ve purchased some new equipment over the past few months and want to be sure you know all about it!

NewEquipmentSmall

From left to right we have:

SmartBoard Pens for the boards in Sackler 510 and Sackler 509

Presentation remotes with built-in laser pointer

USB-C cords and chargers for the new MacBooks
