For the first few weeks the new MacBook Pro at the library will circulate for 4 hours, allowing throngs of mac-happy singletons to give it a whirl and share nice. Further down the road, say voices from inside the many study rooms in the info commons, HSL plans to circulate it for a slightly longer period and experiment. Along with the Macbook, a couple of Apple i-pads make up the emerging inventory of cool and nifty devices students and campus users can try out. Two dell laptops may also exist; “it’s being looked into” library insiders report; and various regulars at the library whisper that the dells are slightly outdated. Students who tend to like the quiet of the second floor and its east windows only mutter that the Dell laptops are good enough for a couple of hours of quiet work in the library with a cup of coffee courtesy of the Wolfgang Puck coffee machine on the first floor.
For details, stop at the desk and ask us anytime about any of this. And tell us what’s on your mind as a user of the library on the AMC.

At the turn of the 20th century, a new technology was changing how physicians did business in the United States. To help its members adapt to this change, the American Medical Association (AMA) devoted most of an issue of its Journal in 1906, 1908 and 1909 to the selection, maintenance and use of an automobile in medical practice. Most of these articles consisted of personal accounts and pictures of doctors and their vehicles. A selection of these articles are featured in the exhibit case on the 3rd floor of the Health Sciences Library.

UpToDate Now Available Off-Campus!
The Health Sciences Library is pleased to announce that you may now access UpToDate from off-campus. On our Clinical Point of Care page, you will see two log in options:
UpToDate allows you to receive Continuing Education credit for using the product. To do so, you must first register your account and then always log in via the second link. Logging in with that link will share your ID number with the vendor so they may credit your activity towards your CE hours .
If you would rather not share that information, you should access UpToDate via the first link. You will still need to log into EZProxy to access the database but your login information will not be passed on to the vendor.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
