MDConsult access expired February 28th

March 5th, 2014 by Laura Schlueter

MDConsult access ended in 2014 for all its subscribers, and here at Upstate, on February 28th.   MDConsult is being replaced with Elsevier’s next generation clinical and curriculum resource, Clinical Key.  The Health Sciences Library will not be subscribing to this product to due its very high cost of licensure.

Our goal is to retain as much of the book and journal content as possible on other platforms, please consult our libguide for alternative resources http://upstate.libguides.com/content.php?hs=a&pid=568272. Access to several of the e-book titles are available through other e-book vendors, and the Library already had institutional subscriptions to many of the journals contained within MDConsult.  Access to several of the most heavily-used journals will still be available through links in the Journals A-Z list and the New York State Library.   We are investigating licensure of the Clinics – however articles from our print subscriptions are available for scanning and delivery via ILLiad request.

Please take a moment to complete a 2 question survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/52RJRR7 and make recommendations for ebook and clinic titles.

Contact Rebecca Kindon with your comments and questions at 464-7193 or kindonr@upstate.edu


Library resources intermittently unavailable

March 28th, 2014 by Laura Schlueter

The Health Sciences Library is  experiencing intermittent outages that may prevent access to our electronic resources. This issue was first reported on Thursday, and is continuing to cause intermittent outages for all online resources, as well as SelfServe. We are aware of the issue and are working with campus Information Management & Technology (IMT).  In some cases, refreshing the browser/reloading the page multiple times may resolve the problem. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Additionally, EBSCOhost databases and services may be intermittently unavailable while Ebsco performs network upgrades. The upgrade will impact Ebsco specific resources from Friday 9PM to 11PM EST.

Scholars’ Den Artist – Doug Cox

December 22nd, 2014 by Jennifer Olivia Maggio

ABOUT DOUG COX

Doug started in advertising photography, working for many local and international companies in Cleveland, Ohio. He also worked with the Cleveland Center for Contemporary Art for 10 years.

Doug has taught at several colleges and hosted private workshops on Creative Polaroid Processes. He works with a variety of alternative and historical processes to create his art.

All the art on display is created with Polaroid Transfers and Polaroid Emulsion Lifts. Polaroid no longer produces their instant print films so these processes are the latest in a long line of photographic processes that we will only be able to read about and look at in museums and collections.

Doug’s most recent work was shown at The University of Wisconsin where he gave several lectures to students and to the public. His work has been selected for exhibition in national and regional juried exhibitions.  His work resides nationally in private collections and in the archives of the Kinsey Institute, Bloomington, Indiana.

Featured Subject Guide: Bioethics

December 4th, 2014 by Laura Schlueter
The Bioethics Subject Guide was created at the request of the Center for Bioethics and Humanities faculty to provide research guidance for students from all Upstate Colleges enrolled in courses provided by the CBH http://www.upstate.edu/bioethics/ and Consortium for Culture and Medicine http://www.upstate.edu/ccm/.  Consortium students come no only from Upstate, but also LeMoyne College and Syracuse University.  The students from other institutions benefit from our Guide as it highlights Upstate Health Sciences Library bioethics resources.
The Bioethics Guide can provide a starting point for bioethics researchers in the larger community as well.
The guide features faculty recommended Bioethics journals, Bioethics e-books, and print books, along with Legal Resources and a collection of Bioethics research portals compiled by the CBH.
Research in Bioethics often extends beyond traditional biomedical sources, including legal and general interest publications.  Please contact a Librarian at library@upstate.edu for research assistance.
For information on CBH credit courses as well as educational programs and seminars please see http://www.upstate.edu/bioethics/education/.
