We’ve been doing a little testing with Endnote X5 and Papers for the Mac, using them for off campus access to full text. These are the settings we found to work for Endnote:
- Under Edit / Preferences go to Find Full Text.
- Uncheck Pubmed Linkout if checked, as we currently do not use this.
- Check OpenURL, if unchecked. Under OpenURL Path, enter:
It’s the same URL as our Find Journals service, so rather than typing the URL by hand, you may wish to visit the link, then highlight and copy the URL so you can paste it in to Endnote.
- Under Authenticate With, enter:
That’s it! Setup for Endnote on the Mac is exactly the same.
The news on Papers for Mac is not quite as good, as we in the library are not ready to support this application yet. The library’s proxy URL is built in to Papers, so feel free to try it if you are a Papers fan. However, your mileage may vary when accessing full text from off campus through Papers. We CAN recommend using Papers in conjunction with the campus VPN.
Library users can now enjoy a late night cup of coffee from the Wolfgang Puck machine located on the first floor, southeast alcove just down the hall from the Writing Center and near the first floor restrooms.
Students have desired access to coffee during all library hours according to numerous surveys conducted by the health sciences library over the past two years.
Enjoy a quick cup the next time you are in the information commons of HSL.
The Health Sciences Library welcomes all students and other members of the AMC community as the fall approaches and the academic term gets into full swing.
The library will be offering late night hours once again staying open to 12 midnight five days a week providing access to the technology and services offered in the Information Commons of HSL. With study rooms on all floors of the library, vending and coffee in the Information Commons, quiet study spaces on the second and third floors with wireless throughout and over 45 workstations on first floor, students will find peace and place along with the research tools and services to support their work.

Dr. Robert Schrier, Professor of Medicine and former Chair of the Department of Medicine, will be presenting a lecture on Tuesday October 4, 2011 from Noon – 2 pm in the Reading Room of the Health Sciences Library. The topic of the lecture is “Profiles of American Presidents in the Twentieth Century: Merits and Maladies”. Dr. Schrier recently published a book by the same name and the lecture will be followed by a book signing.
This event is co-sponsored by the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus Bookstore and Health Sciences Library.
The Writing Center recently reopened for business in the information commons of the library. HSL is happy to host and partner with the center, offering AMC students a convenient location set in the context of research and discovery of the library. Located in the Information Commons of Health Sciences Library, the Writing Center is just behind the south commons and a short walk to the library’s new coffee machine. Coffee is known for it properties to assist research and writers late night, so it is fitting that coffee complements the first floor and the staff of our Writing Center partners–see center’s fall 2011 hours.
The Writing Center provides one-on-one assistance to undergraduate and graduate students from the Anschutz Medical Campus. In the center, consultants offer help with writing of all kinds, including essays, proposals, dissertations, resumes, and scholarship applications. Justin Bain, director of the center, emphasizes that the center’s services are fluid across campuses, meaning that Anschutz Medical Campus students can visit the Denver Campus Center (and vice versa). In addition the center offers 22 office hours at the Health Sciences Library. While the center does accept walk-ins as availability allows, they primarily operate on an appointment basis on the Anschutz Medical Campus. Please make appointments (and see their availability) online (click on the online schedule to the right to get started).
The center provides an excellent summary of services available and tailored for AMC campus students on their webpages. Users of HSL can always ask for information about the center and other services at our customer service desk in the commons. Just ask!
From consultations with librarians to access to books and other materials around the State through Prospector services, the Health Sciences Library has a service for you. Speak with our customer service staff at the main desk anytime about service options and offerings.
