ClinicalKey February 2019 Updates

Strauss library will have a new ongoing series featuring the newly added and deleted ebooks for ClinicalKey each month. The library has a subscription to all the ebooks in ClinicalKey, unlike with other ebooks, which are purchased individually.

Because the ClinicalKey ebooks are a subscription service similar to journal packages, Strauss library receives all new ebooks, and removes all deleted titles with the monthly update.

Check out the new ebooks that have been added, and this update will let our users know about the ebooks deleted that will no longer be available. If you need to request access to a deleted ebook, please submit a request here.

Prospector borrowing- tell us what you think!

During the week of February 11-17, we’ll be conducting a short poll to find out your opinions on this resource. If you’d prefer, you can drop by the library to fill out a paper copy of the form. Either way, we’d love to hear from you!

Honorary naming of Health Sciences Library celebrated

On Monday, February 4, 2019, a celebration was held to recognize Henry L. Strauss and his many contributions to the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.  This past fall the library was named the Strauss Health Sciences Library in honor of Henry and his wife Joan’s longtime commitment to the campus.  In 1995 Henry Strauss established the Indigenous and Integrative Medicine collection at the library.  Almost 25 years later this collection continues to grow.  In addition to the collection, Strauss also established a quarterly lecture series that focuses on topics related to integrative medicine.

Over 100 people attended the luncheon on February 4th to celebrate Strauss and his many contributions.  Speakers at the event included Chancellor Elliman, Regent Sue Sharkey, and Governor Polis who is a long time friend of Strauss.  Strauss is a pharmacy alumnus and has strong connections to the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.  This was an exciting and important day for the Strauss Health Sciences Library.

Mountain Scholar is in DPLA!

Strauss library’s digital repository, Mountain Scholar, has become part of Digital Public Library of America (DPLA)!

The staff at Strauss library have been working with their colleagues in Mountain Scholar and representatives from DPLA to upload specified parts of the digital repository into the DPLA collections.

DPLA is an online collection of digital archives from libraries, archives, and museums around the country, freely available on the internet.

DPLA requested historical collections from Mountain Scholar, and the Mountain Scholar group voted to go forward and add items from the Mountain Scholar member libraries’ collections to DPLA.

The Strauss library staff chose the historical collections from Mountain Scholar to upload, and the months of work have paid off! You can now view the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, Strauss Health Sciences Library collection in DPLA!

The University of Colorado Anschutz is listed under the Plains to Peaks Collective partnership, and you can see Strauss library in the Contributing Institution list.
