This semester is heading towards the final push! So, we are pleased to present workshops on EndNote, PubMed, Web of Science/Scopus, and Finding Drug Info, basically everything you need to”get it done!

See our Open Workshops page for more information, including complete workshop descriptions and schedules.

Workshops will be held in Sackler 510 on Tuesdays from 9-10am and repeated on Wednesdays from 3-4pm.

EndNote: the Basics
Register: October 31 or November 1

This one-hour session will introduce you to the basics of using the EndNote citation management program. EndNote allows you to create a personal database of references and generate in-text citations and bibliographies in a variety of citation styles. This session is for absolute beginners – no previous experience is required!

PubMed: the Basics
Register: November 7 or November 8

This workshop will introduce you to PubMed. We will review the structure of this database, planning and executing a search strategy, narrowing down search results, finding full-text, and exporting citations into citation management programs such as EndNote.

Cross-disciplinary Research 101: Web of Science/Scopus
Register: November 14  | Can’t make attend in-person? Register to attend via WebEx.

Register: November 15  |Can’t make attend in-person? Register to attend via WebEx.

Cross disciplinary subject? Not sure of where to go after you search PubMed? We will learn how to construct a keyword search; show how finding one good article on a topic can lead to other articles on the same thing; and find out who is also working on your topic of interest.

Finding Drug Information
Register: November 28 | Can’t make attend in-person? Register to attend via WebEx.

Register: November  29 | Can’t make attend in-person? Register to attend via WebEx.

Need structural or property data for a drug or chemical?  Want clinical trial or approval information for drug?  Have a pill and need to identify what it is?  In this workshop, we will discuss resources for finding information on everything from drug development to dosing, and demonstrate techniques for searching these resources.

 

The Hirsh Health Sciences Library would like to welcome this year’s incoming students at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science & Policy!

During your orientation, you’ll have the opportunity to tour the Hirsh library and learn about the many ways we can support you.

During orientation, you’ll also get to meet your liaison librarian,  Amy LaVertu. If you have any questions, or need help, please don’t hesitate to contact  her (amy.lavertu@tufts.edu).

Want to learn more about library resources for nutrition? Check out our Nutrition research guide: http://researchguides.library.tufts.edu/nutrition_guide

 

 

Did you know that there’s a librarian at Hirsh just for you?

The Hirsh Library Liaison Program provides a “point person” for each of the academic programs and clinical departments on the Tufts’ health sciences campus.

What can a 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

Find out who the librarian liaison is for your program and then get in touch with them!

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).
