All the JAMAs, All the Time!  external link

Ebling Library is thrilled to present the JAMA Network Backfiles…

The Ebling Library recently acquired The JAMA Network Backfiles, a digital archive that includes every issue of JAMA and the American Medical Association specialty journals published from 1883 through 1997. The archive features landmark articles that played a pivotal role in shaping the last century of medical research, clinical practice, and public health. UW-Madison affiliated users can access the backfiles through the JAMA Network website or on a mobile device via the JN Reader.

During the HSLC Transformation Project, the Ebling Library’s print backfiles of AMA journals were moved to various storage locations. The acquisition of the digital archive will provide easier access for UW-Madison researchers and historians to retrieve the full text of articles while also preserving the library’s aging print copies.

Keep in mind, if you are looking for original advertisements, which are not part of the digitized copies, please contact historical librarian, Micaela Sullivan-Fowler, micaela.sullivan-fowler@wisc.edu for access to a print copy of the journal.

The purchase of the The JAMA Network Backfiles was made possible by donated funds. The Ebling Library would like to thank the many UWSMPH alumni and friends of the Ebling Library who have given generously. If you would like to contribute to the library and support future educational, clinical, research, and historical initiatives, please contact Christopher Hooper-Lane, christopher.hooper-lane@wisc

Connections  external link

Meet our new Belkin outlets! They have been put on the tables in the Historical Reading Room, tables on the 3rd floor landing area, and throughout the 2nd floor of Ebling. Their multiple outlets come with their own long cord, so they can be placed conveniently at the end or middle of tables. Then, plug in your lap tops, USB devices, hair dryers, irons, blenders, et cetera and work to your heart’s content. We’re not serious about the hair dryers…Now all we need are universal smart phone chargers, like at the airports. You never know what Ebling will do next for your power needs…

Finally, Finals  external link

Ebling staff would like to help you manage the stress of those pending finals.

In room 2320 (just inside the Library entrance) from Monday through Thursday, May 7th-May 10th students can find coloring sheets, pens and pencils, puzzles and a chess board to incorporate into your study break.

Periodically, treats will be on the front table by Ebling’s entrance and you can sometimes find a (quiet) group study room on the 3rd floor. The big Historical Reading Room, also on the 3rd floor, might also offer some quiet.

Let us know if you need anything. Good luck on finals and have a safe summer.

Lost?  external link

Imagine leaving a stroller full of children’s coats outside of the HSLC?! We put a photo on Facebook, and it was retrieved. Ebling is the Lost & Found drop off for the Library and the HSLC (where many things are left in the atrium).

More valuable items might also be stored in the HSLC Security office across from the UBS Bookstore. If you are missing keys, a charger, a stethoscope, a water bottle, a textbook, etc. please ask at Ebling’s 2nd floor Service desk or call (608) 262-2020. We love to see these items reunited with their people.

Enhanced Space for Learning  external link

We began to transform the journal stacks landscape in Ebling during the fall of 2015, removing or relocating 100,000 journals from the 3rd floor “bar” area. In 2017 renovation and construction began, and on April 4th, 2018, we had our first formal glimpses of the new space. The majority of the area on the left hand side became the Interactive Learning Center, which will accommodate hundreds of students and other participants in a variety of online or team learning opportunities.

Outside the learning area is an area for single or group study and a pantry for students to use for their formal or informal dining needs. On the right side of the “bar” is the Wichman Clinical Teaching & Assessment Center, a series of clinic rooms for working with standardized patients. The excitement is palpable, new space, new neighbors, new opportunities for students to be at the top of their academic experience. As the renovation, architect and construction crews put on the finishing touches, we take this opportunity to say thank you. What a journey!

Body of Work: Selections from Ebling’s Historical Exhibitions, 2005-2015  external link

Since 2005 our Historical Reading Room, on the 3rd floor has periodically had historical exhibitions installed in its display cases. The varied exhibitions have incorporated books, journals and artifacts from Ebling’s Rare Books & Special Collections, a Collection that covers the 15th century forward. Over the years we have had guest curators like Gerald Estes and Annette Yonke who shared their stamp and postcard collection on medical care and transport during WWI, and Meredith Torre and Kala Kluender, two students who created displays on the history of herbal medicines and the history of midwifery in Wisconsin.

Over the years, I have created exhibitions that complemented the UW’s Common Book Reading Program Go Big Read, adding substance to books like Michael Pollan’s In Defense of Food and Rebecca Skloot’s The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lack’s with exhibitions called It’s Good for You: 100 Years of the Art & Science of Eating and Informing Consent: Unwitting Subjects in Medicine’s Pursuit of Beneficial Knowledge. Exhibits on the Civil War, exhibits highlighting our anatomical and clinical texts and traveling exhibits on African American Surgeons, Women in Medicine and Global Health have all been “brought to life,” in the Historical Reading Room.

I am most proud of three installations, Skeletons in the Attic: 100 Years of Medical Education at UW-Madison, Seaworthy: A History of Maritime Health & Medicine and Fallout: The Mixed Blessing of Radiation & the Public Health– in all cases maximizing the use of archival photos, artifacts, books and journals to illustrate the conjunctions that happen between clinical practice, scientific research, public health, nursing, pharmacy and the social, cultural, economic and political framework that exists during a historical era.

Body of Work: Selections from Ebling’s Historical Exhibitions 2005-2015 offers highlights from previous exhibits, hopefully whetting the appetite for a work in progress: Impact: Spanish Influenza, World War I and Advertising in 1918, opening in Fall of 2018. Do come see some of Ebling’s treasures, now through the summer. Please contact Micaela Sullivan-Fowler for additional information. micaela.sullivn-fowler@wisc.edu

Successful UW Science Expeditions  external link

Thank you and congratulations to all who came or volunteered for the UW Science Exhibitions 2018. As one of the former organizers of this research/science rich event, I can tell you that the energy and engagement was stellar. The comments were endlessly affirming, the experiment “stations” were lively, and the volunteers at the Stations were bashful (not!). We calculate that about 700 kids and their grownups came through the Health Sciences Learning Center, the School of Nursing and the School of Pharmacy on Sunday the 9th; proving once again that science in all its forms and applications is a force to be reckoned with.

In addition to Exploration Stations on swallowing, hand hygiene, DNA research, glass blowing, anesthesiology, capillary action and memory, Ebling Library had its own student staff ready to answer questions about health information databases. So many children lined up to make the Velcro skeleton that we had to refill the jellybean bowl countless times, and it gave us an opportunity to talk about the library’s resources with their parents. An engaging time was had by all!

UW Science Expeditions 2018- Participate in all things Science!  external link

On Sunday, April 8th, 2018, join countless scientists, clinicians, health sciences students, researchers, postdocs, and outreach specialists while they demonstrate the work they are doing at UW. The 16th Annual UW Science Expeditions is open to the public from 12:00-4:00 in the Health Sciences Learning Center Atrium at 750 Highland Ave. Please note the new time for this year, and bring nieces, nephews, grandparents…kids of all ages!

Last year nearly 700 children and their families toured the UW Hospital’s Clinical Simulation Program and visited “Exploration Stations” highlighting UW’s health science and clinical research. Ebling Library will have a Station, where you can learn how to optimally find health care resources. Across the street, the UW School of Nursing and the School of Pharmacy will have Exploration Stations. Please join us this year, it promises to be, as always, full of “I never knew that ” moments. For additional information click here.
