Librarians in Print at the Strauss Health Sciences Library

Congratulations to Education & Reference Librarians Ben Harnke, Kristen DeSanto, Christi Piper, Nina McHale, and Lilian Hoffecker, who just published a featured article in Doody’s Core Titles about the recent changes to the department’s professional literature search service. The article, “Developing a Database for a Literature Search Service at an Academic Health Sciences Library,” details the process taken to revise and improve the organization of the Strauss Health Sciences Library’s search service for systematic reviews, grant proposals, book chapters, and other large publication projects.

Furthermore, DeSanto had an additional publication selected as a featured article with DCT on her role as a Clinical Librarian assisting inpatient teams in clinical rounding. In “Answering Questions at the Point of Care,” she provides an overview of her role as a librarian during clinical rounds, including the professional knowledge she brings to the role and the technologies and resources she uses the most in this unique setting.

Check out both of these articles in the links above, and join us in congratulating their hard work!

EndNote X9 is Here!


Installing X9

To download EndNote X9, visit the Office of Information Technology’s EndNote site license page. Access to this page will require a Passport login. Links to the installation files for both Windows and Mac versions of X9 are available here, along with the license key, which you’ll need to complete your installation.

Upgrading to X9

If you are upgrading from a previous version to X9, note that:

  • EndNote/Clarivate Analytics recommends that you uninstall previous versions of EndNote before installing a new version;
  • Uninstalling EndNote will not delete your library;
  • You should close all Microsoft applications (e.g., Word and Outlook) before EndNote will install;
  • If you are due to upgrade your Microsoft applications, do that before installing EndNote.
