Finals will soon be upon us, followed by a 3 week break. I hope you all have exciting plans but if studying is on your agenda, the library will be open limited hours during break. When you come back, we hope to have new computers for you.

During finals, we will be opening early. We also have a de-stress event scheduled for August 5th with Matty [See story below]. If you're a dog lover, please stop by.

We may have additional things happening (like spontaneous treats) so make sure to check our Facebook page or drop by.

Study Carrels and Stand-Up/Sit-Down tables

Thanks to the NWHSU Student Senate, the library now has study areas that will allow you to study standing up.

We have four study carrels that can be found to the left of the journals area. They aren't too heavy so feel free to move them around if you'd like. Please don't take them from the library.

We also have two tables that move up and down. We'd prefer that these not be moved as they are connected to power sources. You can find them located against the window. If you need assistance in adjusting them, please ask at the front desk.

Ghostbusters: Library

Chat with or text your librarian

Did you know that there is something called library anxiety? There are some people for whom what happened in the Ghostbusters clips is a real fear. We feel we are a welcoming bunch but if you'd feel more comfortable not asking a question in person, the library now has chat and texting available for any questions you have.

Look for the green "Chat Now" button on the library's main page to see if a librarian is available. (If they are not, feel free to e-mail us!)

Or, in Moodle, use the chat box at the top of the "Library Information" Moodle page. You all have access to it. Find it in the side-bar on the left next to your other classes.

You can also text us at 651-504-1542



Starting August 4th, we will open at 7:00 a.m. on weekdays until Friday August 14th. We will close at our regular times each day.

Our weekend hours remain the same.

Study Rooms

Study Room Sign-Up Reminders:

  • For the dates of Monday August 3rd to Friday, August 14th, the sign-up sheets will be at the desk with the library staff member. You are allowed to pre-sign-up for 2 hours a day.
  • You can get additional time if, at the end of the time slot, no one signs up after you or there are empty rooms. Feel free to approach the desk for more time.

New Computers in the library!

When you get back from break, the library will likely be full of new computers. Hopefully, the new systems will resolve quite a few of the the technical issues that have been plaguing the connection to the printers. Look for updates in the fall newsletter.

PubMed Tutorials

Some of you have requested Advanced PubMed training to build on the training you get in Clinical Reasoning I, the AOM EIP library session, and the Massage EIP course.

In the "Library Information" Moodle "course", there is an "Advanced PubMed" page in the module on PubMed. More and more tutorials will be added there on how to optimize your advanced PubMed search but here is what we have so far. Learn how to use the "Advanced Search Builder" to do a general search, search a specific journal or search by author.

There are some tips and tricks available as well on how to organize your search results.
