Milestone Mondays: Study Zone Demo Completed

Monday June 19. 2017. Library Study Zone remodeling proceeds smoothly and spacious future floor plan begins to take shape.

View from the north end looking south, 2nd floor area construction demolition completed

The week ending June 16 brought to close a major milestone in construction and remodeling up on the second floor of the Health Sciences Library. Contractors completed the demolition of nearly five thousand square feet on the far north end of HSL’s second floor. The construction team successfully removed all journal stacks, original ceiling, light fixtures, counters, carpet tiles and much more. With the area torn down and apart, the process continues to start building!

Students using the library this summer can be seen more and more wearing noise cancelling headphones during this disruptive but exciting period. The completion of demolition marks a milestone on the road to future success. Anschutz students looking for more study rooms in the library and a study area offering sharp focus for intense and long-term work periods will not be disappointed later this year in October. The completed space will have great natural lighting and vibrant colors to keep you awake. The Study Zone will have a kitchenette area, two energy nap pods, seating for over a 100 users (prior seating in area was 25), and creative & diverse furniture options for different quiet-study modes. Stay tuned for more news as things develop.

Before (May 2017) Journal stacks in the area prior. All moved to PASCAL on campus.

 

After (June 2017) Demolition and deconstruction finished.

 

The library will add updates to this news blog, post weekly on Facebook about progress, and we continue to host a board display in the first floor lobby of the library to keep the community informed with a visual timeline and other drawings from the project.

Going forward after demolition, framing of rooms and new walls begins — studs arrive. If you like photos of the action, follow us on Facebook for weekly posts and pics. See the FB photo archive labeled ‘2nd Floor Study Zone & Renovation 2017 HSL’.

The future Study Zone at HSL is not quite “club med” but the amenities and design will support success by providing an inviting place with a rejuvenating ambiance to get your study on and focus in relative quiet.

A main Study Zone blog page is also up at https://hslnews.wordpress.com/study_zone/.

ClinicalKey linking problem

Hopefully this has been fixed, but the work-arounds are great for any kind of linking problems that may arise!

We are aware of a problem linking to some articles in ClinicalKey. Instead of going to the full text of the article, users are taken to a MedLine abstract within ClinicalKey. It does not happen with every article.
(Click image to enlarge)

I
f you experience this problem, we have a few work-arounds:

  1. You can look for the journal in our Journal A-Z list and click down through the volumes and issues until you get to your article.

  2. Search for the article within ClinicalKey itself.


    We apologize for the inconvenience and are working with our linking service provider to find a solution.

Prospector Temporarily Suspended

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 copydocs@ucdenver.edu 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.

Please contact the service desk at 303-724-2152. For specific questions concerning Prospector, please contact Tami Hoegerl at 303-724-2175 or tamara.hoegerl@ucdenver.edu.

AccessPharmacy time-out problem

Have you ever been “kicked out” of AccessPharmacy or AccessAnesthesiology after being on the same page for a while? Sometimes during a session users are kicked out and can’t get past the log-in page to access full-text content. There seems to be some kind of time-out occurring. You can try the following if you encounter this problem:

  1. Try to access another database, such as Academic Search Premier, etc. from the library’s web page: http://hslibrary.ucdenver.edu/databases
  2. Try again with AccessPharmacy.
  3. Try clearing your cache or browsing history.
  4. Repeat if you encounter the log in page again.

We value your feedback regarding access problems and your suggestions for access improvement. Please let us know how we can improve access to this or any other resource: http://hslibrary.ucdenver.libanswers.com/index.php 

E-books in these databases include:

dipi9 good12 harr butt5 long2
