New Resource: Improve Your Medical Spanish with Canopy

The library has access to a new Spanish language resource, Canopy.

Canopy is a web-based medical Spanish training tool that teaches and provides practice for specialized medical concepts and terminology for common clinical scenarios. By beginning with a Medical Spanish Assessment, Canopy will recommend where to begin your training. The course provides three levels of learning with numerous lessons in each level catered to specific skills and vocabulary. The lessons are interactive and include practice for both written and spoken language.

You can find Canopy listed on our databases page .

New Trial: DynaMed Plus

The library is starting a new trial for DynaMed Plus. You may be familiar with DynaMed, a current library subscription, but you now have 6 months to try out DynaMed Plus and see what you think.

You can find DynaMed Plus in the Databases A-Z list or through this quick link.

What’s the difference you ask? Take a look at the chart below to see some of the ways that DynaMed Plus is different from DynaMed and what’s available in both. Once you’ve tried it out, let us know what you think using the TellUs form!

Learn a little bit more about Jason in his short biography:

I was born in Chicago, but have called Colorado my home since 1996. I graduated from Colorado State University in 2007 with a BA in English Literature, and again from Metropolitan State University in 2011 with a BA in Journalism. Today, I live in Denver with my wife, Mindi, and our Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, Penny. I’m presently enrolled in the School of Library and Information Management at Emporia State University in the 2017 Denver cohort, and I aspire to work in an academic library to fulfill my dream of never leaving school. Outside of the library, I host a weekly pub quiz for Geeks Who Drink, provide website and marketing support for Cook Street School of Culinary Arts, and am very passionate about certain flavors of La Croix.
