The library will suspend 24/7 access for a short period just before Christmas. When HSL closes at 5 p.m. on Thurs Dec 22, ALL USERS will be asked to exit the building — students, staff, AMC, downtown, everyone. NO EXCEPTIONS. This is for carpet cleaning of high traffic areas, many of which have rarely/never been cleaned. The suspension of 24/7 runs from 5 pm, Thursday Dec 22 to 7 am, Monday Dec 26. Thanks to everyone for your understanding as we make the library cleaner for everyone! Happy Holidays!
On November 16, 2016 a conference was held on the Anschutz Medical Campus that brought together national and regional experts to expose, educate and contemplate ways that health and wellness can be improved. Through presentations and panel discussions, speakers shared their experiences and knowledge.
Videos of the presentations are now available on the conference website.
Check out the website and watch the great speakers that shared their knowledge and answered questions.
The conference was sponsored by the Health Sciences Library and the Strauss-Wisneski Indigenous and Integrative Medicine Collection and made possible by a grant from the Bard Family Foundation.
The Health Sciences Library is in the process of migrating to a new system. Beginning Monday, November 7, 2016, Prospector services will be temporarily suspended as part of the migration. Prospector services will be restored within the next several months. We will notify the Anschutz Medical Campus community when services resume. Please watch for updates. You will still have options for requesting materials during the Prospector downtime.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL): Please create an ILL (Illiad) account to place requests for books and articles held at other libraries. ILL services will be limited to academic material. ILLiad is a free service for most Anschutz Medical Campus faculty, staff, and students. Please visit our webpage. For questions and help with Interlibrary Loan, please contact the ILL office at email@example.com or call 303-724-2111.
Your Public Library: If you are looking for popular fiction or leisure reading, please visit your local public library. Most libraries in the metro area are members of Prospector and can help you with this service.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during our migration process! We will do our best to make the transition as smooth as possible for you. Questions? Please contact the service desk at 303-724-2152. For specific questions concerning Prospector, please contact Tami Hoegerl at 303-724-2175 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

In July, the library hosted the 9th-annual Supporting Clinical Care: An Institute in Evidence-Based Practice for Medical Librarians. This intensive three-day workshop was taught by ten medical librarians, including four from the Health Sciences Library. Originally hosted by Dartmouth College, this workshop has an excellent reputation among medical librarians, and the Health Sciences Library is honored to now have it at the Anschutz Medical Campus since 2014. Thirty medical librarians participated, representing nineteen states and one Canadian province.
Designed specifically for medical librarians, the learning objectives include identifying and explaining the concepts of evidence-based practice (EBP), recognizing different types of study design, creating answerable clinical questions, and using those questions to find the best evidence in the literature. Attendees leave the workshop with enhanced understanding of EBP concepts and strategies for providing EBP training and support to the health care professionals at their organizations. The workshop combines large group lectures with small group discussions and hands-on learning, using a case-based approach. With a 3:1 student-faculty ratio, attendees receive individual attention that can be lacking at larger workshops. To learn more about the institute, visit http://hslibraryguides.ucdenver.edu/ebpml.
