It doesn’t seem too long ago the last time we shared what new books the library had acquired…but since then, we’ve added even more to our collection! There’s not much in the way of new leisure reading books this time around, but rest assured–we’ve got some more fiction titles coming soon. In the meantime…

Did we miss something? If there’s a book out there that the library doesn’t own, and you think we should, let us know!

The library is offering several different open workshops this semester on topics like PubMed, Point-of-Care/Mobile Resources, and Open Access Week, just to name a few! These open workshops are a great opportunity to learn about a new research tool or to brush up on your research skills. Take a look at the HHSL Open Workshops Calendar for dates, descriptions, and to register for one (or many!) workshops. Sessions are held most Wednesdays and Thursdays in Sackler 510 at 12pm.

See you there!

We would like to highlight that August is National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM)!  This was established to encourage people of all ages to protect their health by being vaccinated against infectious diseases.  The CDC offers information and Toolkits to help you out.  You can also check out this full 2015 Toolkit put out by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion!





It’s that time again for an update on the new books we’ve recently put out there on the shelves! This time it’s a mixed bag of non-fiction and health sciences related materials. We have also received some very nice donations, so check out some of the new public health books that we have, including the Oxford Textbook of Global Public Health, which you can find in the stacks! Here are some other books that you might also find interesting:

As I was speaking with my sister last weekend she was in the process of trying a new way of making s’mores.  My young nephews had a lot of fun assembling these delicious treats and I can’t wait to try it this holiday weekend!  Campfire cones (or campfire treats) substitute the graham crackers for ice cream cones.  Stuff your cone with marshmallows, chocolate, and whatever else you’d like (peanut butter, strawberries, etc.).  Wrap it with tin foil and then either bake it, put it on the grill, or heat it over a campfire.  When you are finished you have this chocolatey goodness!

This last one is perfect for the 4th of July!  My family has done this trifle before!  The main ingredients include angel food cake, whipped cream, strawberries, and blueberries.  One recipe can be found here:  This can also be presented as a whole cake with an American Flag pattern!
