18th Century Dentistry

Posted on: |

Recently, the blog All Things Georgian wrote an entry about what dentistry looked like in the 18th century. The authors featured some great historical illustrations as well as photos of historical instruments; you can read the entire blog post here.

Don’t forget, we have an awesome History of Medicine Collection in the lower level of the health sciences library which is home to a variety of historical dental instruments like the thumb operated dental drill. There are also plenty of historical dental texts available within the collection as well. Stop in and see the collection Monday through Friday, 9am-5pm. You can also contact Linda Lohr or Keith Mages to make an appointment. Stop in and see what 18th century dentistry looked like first hand!

The Open Access timeline of 2014

Posted on: |

2014 was a big year for Open Access (OA), with OA having great impact on scholarly communications as more and more journals are adopting the OA model. For those of you unfamiliar with Open Access, OA journals are journals that do not charge a subscription fee to gain access to their articles, with their articles being freely available to anyone and everyone. Benefits of OA include immediate access to research and higher citation counts for authors as more researchers will have access to their materials as they are freely available.

Check out the PLoS (Public Library of Science) Blog post about Open Access’s last year and find out how it’s changing the scholarly communication scene (spoiler alert – OA is on a roll!). Have more questions about Open Access and want to know more about how to submit an article to an OA journal? The UB Libraries have you covered with our Open Access Publishing site. You can always contact me for any assistance as well. Happy writing!

Fun Fact Friday

Posted on: |

Did you know that Gregg Allman of the Allman Brothers thought his calling was to be a dentist rather than a musician? He applied and was accepted to dental school, but put off attending to go on tour with his brother.  You can add this to your arsenal of random facts provided by your dental librarian, which of course includes my personal favorite – that dentists discovered the secret of the narwhal’s horn.
