DCC is Now Mountain Scholar

HSL has an online repository where digital materials are available for our patrons.

Previously, the name of the digital repository was Digital Collections of Colorado, or DCC.

The digital repository is not just HSL, but a group of libraries. Recently, the University of Wyoming joined the repository group. Since the group is no longer only in Colorado, the name was changed.

Mountain Scholar

The new name of the digital repository is now Mountain Scholar: Digital Collections of Colorado & Wyoming. You will see the links changed on HSL’s main page.

Please check out what’s available in the repository.  There’s lots of great stuff!

Pictorial atlas

Pictorial Atlas of Acupuncture: An illustrated Manual of Acupuncture Points

Knowledge of the exact status and relevance of acupuncture points is an essential tool for the acupuncture therapist.  The novice may worry that he will have to learn all the acupuncture points by heart.  But experience shows that only about one third of these points at most are actually used in treatment.  For this reason the value of an atlas that provides information about a currently important, but seldom used, point cannot be stressed enough.

This comprehensive atlas, beautifully produced with great graphic clarity, is the result of unique collaboration between German and Chinese experts.

The atlas is also noteworthy for the courage of the editors, authors, and the publisher in limiting the indications of the various points to their application uses.  This is an area in which the importance of the points has undergone great diversification.  These indications have been examined in a meticulous discussion process and redundant or dubious findings discarded.

This pioneering initiative means a substantial gain in practical use, which can only benefit the reader in the practice of acupuncture.

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!

Remote Access just got easier: try out Lean Library!

Click screenshot image to install Lean Library browser plugin

What if :  no matter where you are, your browser was smart enough to log you in to the library’s proxy server whenever needed, in order to get to licensed content?  That “what if” is now!

With the Lean Library browser plugin installed, you’ll be able to “Roam Free” as you do your research. Like Nature journals?  Start your research at Nature.com. If you don’t have a current proxy session with HSL, you’ll be prompted automatically to start one. Like NEJM? Start out at The New England Journal of Medicine.  Do you always start with Pubmed? Lean Library will automatically modify your starting URL so that HSL’s Article Linker full text checker appears with citations in Pubmed.

Video of How it Works

Give it a try! Lean Library takes just seconds for its one-time install, and works on most web browsers*. No user registration is necessary. Note: Our trial access to Lean Library lasts until October 12, 2018.**

Tried it?  Like it?  Have questions? Please be sure to let us know, just a quick email would be great: send it to library.web@ucdenver.edu with subject: Lean Library.

*Note: There is no mobile version of Lean Library, although that is on the list for development. For now, Lean Library works only on laptop/desktop browsers.

**Double note:  For purposes of this trial, not all HSL/AMC online resources are set up with Lean Library. Here is the quick list of what is currently set up:

We would love to hear any feedback you have about the Lean Library plugin. Email us here: library.web@ucdenver.edu.

Connect Your Laptop Workstations

Working on something big? The Health Sciences Library is thrilled to offer full-size screens, keyboards, and mice at our brand new “Connect Your Laptop Workstations.” Connect your laptop using the cables provided and you’ll have a full 27” monitor to display your work in parallel or as an extended screen. Plus, whether you’re working with a brand new laptop or an older model, the HSL has a wide variety of adapters for checkout at the service desk to connect you to the workstations.

2_FULL-STATION-WIDE

Here’s how it works. The four Connect Your Laptop Workstations are located in the fourth pod of the north computer commons, next to the north printer station. Note the yellow placards on the table partitions. The four cables at the station are: USB3, connecting the keyboard and mouse to your laptop; VGA, connecting the monitor to an older laptop; HDMI, connecting high-definition video on newer laptops; and Mini Display Port, connecting video for a wide range of Apple products.

5_CABLES-WIDE

Working with a brand new laptop and only have USB-C connections? Just check out an OMARS multi-port adapter from the service desk! This will allow you to use HDMI video, USB for keyboard/mouse, and still leave ports open for charging and connecting other devices.

4_OMARS-WIDE

If you have any problems or need help getting started with a Connect Your Laptop Workstation, don’t hesitate to ask for assistance at the service desk during public access hours. If you have suggestions for this space or ideas on what technologies would be useful to you, let us know with a Tell Us comment!
