Changes coming to Article Linker May 17th

You may have noticed that the library has a new system for searching called SearchHSL. As part of this transition, our Article Linker will also connect through this new system starting on May 17th. When you search for an article in PubMed, Google Scholar, Ovid, and other databases, you will still see the same Article Linker button or branded links (Full-Text at CU Anschutz) that you used to see:

However, after you click the button, you will now go to our new system and it will look something like this (you can click a link circled in red to connect to the article and you would click the link circled in blue to report a problem):

New e-book: Medicine Science and Dreams : The Making of Physician-Scientists

Medicine Science and Dreams : The Making of Physician-Scientists

Description: “Physician-scientists are unusual creatures. While we are drawn to the clinical challenges of our patients, we are also drawn to the opportunities that our patients’medical problems bring to science. This book contains the unique experiences and encounters that drew 20 accomplished physician-scientists to this profession. These personal stories are those of people and circumstances that have had profound effects on our career decisions, our creative opportunities, and our lives. These stories also serve to highlight the lessons learned along the way and the distinct attributes of these women and men of medicine and science. Our combined hope is that our collective biographies will enhance the public understanding of our profession, will move people from medicine to science and from science to medicine, and will inspire those who are contemplating this extraordinary profession. “It is a rare gift to benefit from the collective wisdom of so many individuals at the same time. These physician scientists have provided readers with helpful advice and thoughtful encouragement. The interesting and thought provoking essays in Medicine Science and Dreams can be read and digested one at a time or all at once in sequence. They provide lessons to be learned by any physician-scientist, whether just starting out or in the middle of a research career. Schwartz has done readers a great service and has added to the legacy of these prominent and successful physician-scientists.”
