Writing a Personal Statement and Social Networking. A Workshop @ HSL from the Career and Writing Centers
“Writing a Personal Statement” will be presented by Steve Weishampel of the Writing Center, and “Social Networking” will be covered by Jessie Czerwonka of the UC Denver Career Center. This combined workshop from the Centers is offered twice, once in October and then again in December.
WHEN: Friday October 30, 10:30 – 11:30 a.m. And again in December: Tuesday December 1, Noon – 1:00 p.m.
WHERE: Teaching Labs in the Health Sciences Library on the Anschutz Medical Campus (AMC), first floor.
The personal statement is an important part of applications for jobs, grants, and post-secondary schools. The workshop will cover the topics that must be addressed in personal statements, the organization of personal statements, and the appropriate style writers should use.
Social networking is an important aspect when developing professional relationships. With a little work, social networking skills can work effectively for you.
A new issue of the HSL Newsletter is out featuring news of longer hours, alternative interfaces to PubMed, Writing and Career Centers in the library, Louis Pasteur’s Études sur la bière, SciVee, Mendeley, Labmeeting, pictures of some of our artifacts, and more!
For the past year, the National Library of Medicine (NLM) has been working on a redesign of the PubMed Search Interface. The new version is now available for preview. Please take a few moments and look it over. We expect that NLM will switch over from the old to the new sometime in the next few weeks. Don’t be caught by surprise when the switch comes. You can provide Feedback directly to NLM.
Here’s a quick tip concerning the new search interface:
If you find yourself looking around for things you use to see on the Tabs, like Limits and the Search History, use the Advanced Search option just above the new PuMed search entry box.
The library expects to offer some lunchtime introduction and overview sessions and we’ll let post here and send out announcements once those have been setup.

The Health Sciences Library will be holding a trial of the R2 Library from Rittenhouse publishing. The trial will run from October 1 – November 30, 2009. The R2 Library is an aggregation of over 1200 e-books from 37 publishers in the health science, science and technical fields. During the trial UC Denver Anschutz Medical Campus users will have access to all 1200 titles. Users can search across all the e-books or just one. Images, charts and graphs can be extracted and used for educational purposes. It is very easy to print or save sections of the e-books. To access the e-books in this trial, please visit the library’s homepage and look for R2 Library in the Databases list.
The Health Sciences Library is very interested in feedback from faculty, students and staff about e-books. E-books can provide many benefits including increased accessibility and ease of searching. As the library investigates e-books in the health sciences we’d like to know what our users think of this format. Please give feedback to the library by contacting your librarian or sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
