Strauss Library Website URL is Changing

Following along with the campus-wide transition from ucdenver.edu to cuanschutz.edu, the Strauss Library website URL is changing to https://library.cuanschutz.edu.  The old library website URL should stay functional for quite a while, however it will automatically redirect to our new URL.

If you have bookmarks or favorites in your browser set to the Strauss Library website, you may wish to edit those bookmarks or recreate them.

Questions or comments? Please let us know:  jeff.kuntzman@cuanschutz.edu

Witness to the Holocaust Photographs Added to Mountain Scholar

The photographs of the Witness to the Holocaust sculptures by Devorah Sperber are now included in the CU Anschutz digital repository, Mountain Scholar.

The sculptures were installed in April of this year, and on April 30 the library had the Dedication and Conversation with the Artist. We added some of the photos from the event to the repository, to record the dedication for our history.

Our director, Melissa Desantis, provided descriptions of the individuals in the photos. You can see the descriptions if you click on the ‘View full record’ link for any of the images in the collection.

You can see all the photos of the sculptures, photos from the event, the flyer for the dedication, as well as the flyer that is now posted by the sculptures for people to take, in the repository.

New R2 Free eBook Titles

The staff here at Strauss library recently worked on adding all the free R2 eBook titles so that our users can access them.

PubMed Changes Ahead

In Fall/Winter 2019, PubMed will be undergoing some changes to the interface. If you want to see some of the changes that are coming before the current version of PubMed is replaced, you can visit PubMed Labs, the experimental platform that has some of the major updates already available.

Wondering what’s new? Here are some of the updated features:

Enhanced Search Results

The new version of PubMed (currently PubMed Labs) will have an enhanced relevant sort option, named Best Match, that ranks search results according to several relevance signals, including an article’s popularity, its publication date and type, and its query-document relevant score.

The search results page will now automatically include highlighted text fragments from the article abstract that are selected based on relevance to the search.

Responsive Design

Have you ever tried to use PubMed on your phone or tablet? The current version doesn’t work very well, but the new version of PubMed will feature a mobile-first responsive layout that offers better support for smaller device screens. The new interface will be compatible with any screen size no matter how you access PubMed.

Want to learn more about the new PubMed interface/PubMed Labs? Visit the NLM Technical Bulletin , where this information was taken from, for more details.

You can find more information about what features are in the works here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/labs/pubmed/features/

Have questions or feedback about the new PubMed interface? Contact NLM with your PubMed Labs Feedback.

Resources for Negotiating a Physician Salary

Do you have questions about negotiating your salary or if your compensation is commiserate with your peers?

Take some of the guesswork out of  negotiations with some data from recent salary surveys.

AAMC Faculty Salaries

Visit the Library’s Service Desk to ask for the the 2019 AAMC Faculty Salary Report  or the 2016 AAMC Report on Medical School Faculty Salaries. These publications report on salaries during FY18 and FY15 from surveys of medical faculty from over 140 accredited US medical schools.

Medscape Physician Compensation Reports

Another online source is the Medscape Physician Compensation Report. The report is free, but registration with the site is required to view the report. A general overview and specialty reports are available.  The 2019 report represents almost 20,000 physicians in more than 30 specialties providing salary information, number of hours worked, amount of time spent seeing patients, what they find most rewarding, and challenging about their jobs, and more.

Medscape also offers several other interesting annual reports on lifestyle, work satisfaction, and insurers.  See how you compare with peers on these professional issues.

Educate yourself to ask for and offer the most competitive compensation!
