Differential Diagnosis for the Chiropractor is an ebook
New E-Journal Finder
Welcome to a new trimester. It's a busy trimester for us and we love that people try to escape the cold outside by coming into the library to study.
To begin, we're hiring so if you're interested in working in the library, read about the open shifts below.
We are providing some upcoming closures/hours in this newsletter but we will have more details about midterms next month. We'll communicate them on our website, on Facebook, on our door and even via email.
If you know you will have a project involving citations coming up soon, come to our Mendeley workshop on Feb. 3rd to learn how to organize your citations and create a bibliography in Word. If you can't make it that day, contact the library to make an appointment for a one-on-one Mendeley lesson--or any paper or library-related help. We also have a searching workshop on the 4th. A librarian will show you what she finds valuable in PubMed and other databases but the content will also be cultivated to the needs of the attendees if they have questions. Both are at noon and will be held in the library classroom.
The library has a new (old) full text finder (otherwise known as publication finder or e-journal finder). It works very similarly to our old system but has a bit of a different look. If you were here a year ago, it will look familiar to you.
For the chiropractic students, Souza's seminal book can be extremely popular during certain assignments. If both of the reserve copies are checked out, it can also be accessed digitally. Read for directions below.
Finally, Monica Howell has put together another archives display. This one focuses on objects in our archives as opposed to print items. Read more about it or stop by to take a look. The display case is located in front of the student copy room in the library.
Hours including holidays
We have a few scheduled closures for upcoming holidays. We will be open early for midterms. Any additional hours of library availability during midterms will be posted on our website, on Facebook and communicated via emails.
Just a reminder that if the school closes for weather-related reasons, the library will close as well unless you hear from us.
MLK Jr. Day
January 20: The library will be CLOSED
February 17: CLOSED
The library will be open at 7 a.m. weekdays during midterms. Stay tuned for specifics.
Introduction to Mendeley Workshop
Monday Feb. 3rd at noon in the library classroom.
Mendeley is a citation management system that is free to not only students but members of the general public. If you have a research paper coming up which involves storing and citing a large number of references, Mendeley could be the perfect tool for you. Stop by to learn more about it.
If none of these times work for you, never forget that you can contact Krista Jacobson at email@example.com (or firstname.lastname@example.org) to set up an independent consultation for Mendeley or research services to meet your specific needs.
PubMed and Advanced Searching
This workshop is adapted to meet the needs of those attending. We'll take a look at how PubMed can help you organize your search. We'll discuss advanced searching, filters and using MeSH terms (medical subject headings) to narrow results.
We can also discuss what other databases you might like to use in different situations or talk about your specific search needs
7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.
1:00 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Access the book from home or on campus if all library copies are checked out...
Barring technical difficulties, it is available for students in our catalog. To access it, go to the main library page and search for Differential Diagnosis in our catalog (i.e. use the search for books feature instead of searching for journals bar).
Then look for the copy that says "Downloadable." Click on the downloadable button. To log in from off campus, type in your full email address (including @nwhealth.edu) and enter the password you use for email/computers.
Shortcut: You can also click on the gray headline above that says Differential Diagnosis for the Chiropractor 24/7 and be taken to the book.
See the picture.
Find full text in online journals
To find which journals we have online/electronically:
- There are two search bars on the library's main page. The first is to our ejournal finder. The second is to the catalog.
- In the journal search, type in the title of the journal you're looking for. (Not the article title.)
- If we subscribe to the journal, a list of sources where you can access full text are listed, including a link to our catalog for what's available in print.
- If there are multiple access sources, select the access point with the coverage dates that match when the article you're looking for was published.
- Go to the vendor or publisher site. You may need to log in if you're off campus (full email address and password you use for your email). Find the year/month (or volume/issue) when the article was published. The full text should be available.
- If we don't have the journal online (or in print), you can submit an interlibrary loan request where it can be accessed from another library.
This trimester’s library and archives exhibition is titled “Get Real: Chiropractic Memorabilia and Realia.” Realia is a term that refers to 3D artifacts or objects held in archives. The realia in the library’s display case include memorabilia like a set of enamel pins commemorating chiropractic’s 100th anniversary, car emblems, NWHSU promotional materials, and more. Each item in the case is drawn from NWHSU’s archival collections. Check out the exhibition any time this trimester, and contact the archives (email@example.com) if you have questions or would like to donate materials – in any format.
