Guess this year’s Oscar winners in our selected categories –
Two major Open Access projects bring a wealth of textual material, paintings and other images, films, audio files, and objects from around the world to your home or office computer.
Both may be searched simultaneously at http://www.digibis.com/dpla-europeana/
Another new comprehensive index and bibliography of works in philosophy, PhilPapers, has information that complements all disciplines.
You asked for a more intuitive search experience. Today, January 13th, you can search an easier and more streamlined way to navigate the carefully curated citation index. The Web of Knowledge is now simply the Web of Science.
Give it a try!
Q: How do I get there?
Q: What can I do with it?
A: Perform basic, advanced, or PICO (Population, Intervention, Comparison, and Outcome) searches. Retrieve evidence, images, videos, patient information, and news. Sort results by quality, date, or relevancy. Refine results by evidence type or date.
Q: Can I access full text articles?
A: If you register for a free account or if you have an existing account, you now have access to full text articles that have a PMID, or a unique identifier in PubMed. Find the University at Buffalo (SUNY) under Settings à Your institutions.
Information Literacy Competency Standards for Nursing have just been released from the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL).
These new standards for nursing are based on the “ACRL Information Competency Standards for Higher Education.” The outcomes are written specifically to support nursing resources, language, and the value of evidence-based practice.
The standards directly address the information skills needed by nursing students at the associate, baccalaureate, master’s and doctoral levels. They are written for nursing faculty and librarians who support nursing programs and nursing students in academic settings. The skills described in the standards can be used for continuing education in the nursing profession.
If you couldn’t make it and visit with the dogs, check out the Animal Videos post on the Multimedia Collections & Services blog.
Happy Holidays everyone!
Color printing is now available from Cybrary Stations in the Health Sciences Library.
Select the color print queue, which will end with \abbott-color.
Students, faculty and staff are charged $.30/page, with the default being single-sided (there is no discount for duplex printing). Library guests are charged $.60/page.
All pages submitted to the color printer will be charged at the color rate, regardless of whether the page contains any color. To keep costs down, submit only pages containing color to the color printers, and send remaining pages to black and white printers. Color printers print only on 8.5 x 11 white paper. You can also print to the color printers from home or residence hall using iprint anywhere.
