It’s that time of year! Students, residents, fellows, and faculty prepare to leave the Anschutz Medical Campus to advance their careers – an exciting, and occasionally overwhelming, prospect! After you have left the Anschutz Medical Campus, you will no longer have access to the Health Science Library’s resources, so here are some suggested steps and resources to help you transition.
Before You Go
PubMed: Change Your NCBI Email and Set Up Search Queries
Once you have officially left AMC and the University, you will no longer have access to your @ucdenver.edu email. To ensure NCBI account access–password resets and notifications are sent to your email stored in your NCBI profile–be sure to update your NCBI account with an email that you will still be able to access.
Many of you will continue to search MEDLINE via the freely-available PubMed interface. PubMed allows you to save searches and receive regular updates on current research in your field. To learn how to set up a My NCBI account to save searches in PubMed, visit the My NCBI web page. If you’d like a hand doing this, call us at (303) 724-2152 or fill out the AskUs contact form.
Ovid: Email Yourself Your Search Strategies
If you will have access to Ovid databases at your new institution, we suggest that you email yourself any saved searches before your Ovid account with the Health Sciences Library expires. You can then recreate your searches in your new Ovid account. We can help with this, too–call us at (303) 724-2152 or fill out the AskUs contact form.
At Your New Gig
Do you have an institutional library?
If you will be affiliated with a hospital, health system, or academic institution, you may have access to a library or information center. Check the institution’s website or contact colleagues to find out about library services. Reach out to the health sciences library staff at your new institution; they will be a valuable source of information about your new organization in addition to clinical and research information.
Are you near any local libraries, public and/or academic?
Visit the public library in your new location and ask about resources. Even libraries in small towns may offer access to major medical and science journals. Also, libraries at colleges and universities sometimes offer services to local communities, so if you will be located near a public college or university, explore the options they provide–usually, you must visit the physical library to use online resources. If you are still in the Denver area, you are welcome to use the Health Sciences Library by visiting the building.
Personal Subscriptions/Membership Benefits
Subscribe to Point-of-care Tools
If your new institution does not provide access to clinical point-of-care resources, consider a personal subscription.

Please contact the Head of Collection Management Yumin Jiang with any feedback.
HSL’s rare materials librarian, Emily Epstein, has worked on making the Color Our Collections for 2018 into a coloring book. She collected the coloring pages into a booklet, and Douglas set out the coloring books in the main lobby with coloring supplies, including crayons and colored pencils.
Please stop by and color some of the coloring books! This is a free stress relief activity during exams this May for our students.
You can also access the coloring book to download and print at home here.
The books are on the tables around the staircases in the main lobby.
Jason, who you might recognize from the circulation desk, volunteered to get things started and color one of the coloring books!
There were some technical issues for the last two weeks with the migration of the MyiLibrary titles to ProQuest Ebook Central.
After some technical work, the titles are re-directing correctly!
If you haven’t heard, MyiLibrary migrated to ProQuest Ebook Central on April 25, 2018. Now when you access a MyiLibrary title in the HSL catalog, you will be redirected to this institution webpage:
Please choose University of Colorado Health Sciences Library.
Here is a screen shot of the landing page:
The links from MyiLibrary will re-direct to ProQuest Ebook Central until the end of 2020. The HSL staff will work on cleaning up the links in Search HSL and the website in the meantime. Please be patient with any cleanup!
