MDConsult access expired February 28thMarch 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.

Library resources intermittently unavailableMarch 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 CoxDecember 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.
