New library e-resource: AMA Manual of Style, 11th edition

Book cover

Do I need to include a DOI when citing an online journal article? How many authors can I list before “et al”? How do I cite a government report?

Find the answers to these and all your AMA citation questions in the electronic version of the AMA Manual of Style, 11th edition, now available online from the Strauss Health Sciences Library!

If you are accessing the manual off campus, you will need to sign in to the library website first.

Have You Added LibKey Nomad to Chrome?

LibKey Nomad, created by Third Iron (creators of BrowZine), is a Chrome browser extension (also known as a browser plugin or browser add-on) that provides instant links to full-text articles subscribed to by the Strauss Health Sciences Library as well as open access articles.

Click here to add the LibKey Nomad Chrome browser extension.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Services during closure due to COVID-19

ILL staff are here to help you get information you need.  However, due to conditions on campus, processing may be slower than usual. 

Journal articles in print volumes at Strauss Library and PASCAL (Storage) are unavailable to be scanned.  We may be able to borrow from other libraries and have options beyond that if your need is critical.  Book loans from other libraries are unavailable at this time, and hold requests for books in the Strauss collection are not able to be processed either. 

However, we are online and are still providing ILL services M-F, 8am-5pm.  We feel confident we can provide most journal articles.  Other libraries, nationally, may have the article or book chapter you need available electronically.  As well, requests for articles held in our e-journal collections will be processed.

If you don’t have an ILLiad account and are affiliated with Anschutz, feel free to register though our ILLiad website:

https://library-cuanschutz.illiad.oclc.org/illiad/firsttime.html

If you have any questions email copydocs@ucdenver.edu or call 303-724-2111 to speak with Lynn Triefus, ILL Coordinator, about your need.

After the extension has been added and you’ve selected our institution you’ll begin seeing “Download PDF” buttons when looking at article abstracts in PubMed:

If the PDF of an article is not available through the Strauss Health Sciences Library subscriptions nor is open access, you will see a button called “Access Options…”:

The “Access Options…” button will direct you to the Strauss Health Sciences Library catalog, Library Search, to confirm we do not have access and provide the option to request the article via InterLibrary Loan (ILL). 

Additionally, if you are a vendor’s site for an article and full text is available, you will see a “Download PDF” button in the lower left side of Chrome.

If you are off campus when using LibKey Nomad, and have not yet logged in to proxy, the first licensed content button that you access through LibKey during your browser session will redirect you through our EZProxy login page. As long as you do not close your browser you will not be asked to log in through proxy again during the current browser session.

If you encounter any issues please submit a help case and library staff will assist.
