Get Good Results with Scopus  external link

Scopus is reportedly “the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature and quality web sources”. Half of the Scopus content comes from outside the U.S., making its over 65 million citations an essential destination for resources in all disciplines such as medical, scientific, technical, social sciences, arts and humanities. Scopus includes all of the journals indexed in Embase, Compendex (Engineering), and MEDLINE. Embase is a very large global biomedical database that covers nearly 3000 journals not included in MEDLINE.

Scopus is especially robust if you are looking for drug literature. Even if you’ve searched in PubMed, Scopus gives you a more comprehensive return when searching for information about pharmaceuticals or medical devices.

The Scopus database also provides powerful citation analysis tools for articles, authors, institutions and journal metrics.

Alternatively, access Scopus from Ebling’s Top Databases column from on and off campus (for those with a NetID).

If you are wondering how Scopus may help with your research or clinical practice or how it compares to other databases such as PubMed or Web of Science, please contact us.

Black History Month  external link

Throughout the month of February Ebling’s Facebook page will be highlighting Black individuals, communities, and experiences in health care. We will include notable individuals who have influenced and shaped the practice of nursing, medicine and pharmacy. Among them are women and men who cared for patients in dangerous venues, assisted others in wartime, received medical, nursing and pharmacy degrees from Black as well as White institutions, fought institutional color barriers in towns and cities, and did research that changed public health and the delivery of health care.

Black History Month notable lists tend to point out overlooked firsts, the first Black pharmacist, etc. Those encyclopedic facts are important and will be included, but we would like to introduce some more layered stories as well. We will include individuals in allied health professions and other participants in community health. We will share biased practices, identify racial disparity in treatment, note racially profiled research and cast light on stories that add volume to the history of inequity/equity and exclusion/inclusion.

The stories of advancement in the health sciences is as color filled as the fabric of the profession. The scaffolding of this amazing profession has always included all members of our community. As Martin Luther King suggested in a longer quote on poverty and disease “… I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the way our world is made. No individual or nation can stand out boasting of being independent. We are interdependent.” This interdependency is what we will elucidate over the next month.

Please contact Micaela Sullivan-Fowler in Ebling’s Historical Unit if you have additions or questions. Our resources, both online and in print are available for research on the Black experience (or any other experience) in health care. Micaela.Sullivan-Fowler@wisc.edu (608) 262-2402

Valentine Arts & Crafts  external link

On Tuesday, February 6th we have reserved Ebling’s 2320 for making Valentines. This will be for any student, patron, Ebling staff member, faculty, or student worker who wants to sit for a few minutes and make a Valentine- to either mail to someone/give to someone/or hang on our Valentine “clotheslines,” as a decoration. The “clotheslines” will be situated somewhere near the entrance, and will remain there until the day after Valentines.

We will supply glitter, construction paper, pipe cleaners, paper lace doilies, heart stickers, glue, scissors, etc. We will provide big markers, some vintage Valentines to cut up, and chocolate.

After the 6th, we will set the supplies on the entrance table, and encourage people to make Valentines until the 14th. Enjoy!

Welcome Back and Thank you  external link

Welcome back from the holidays, from adventures, from your families, from, perhaps, life outside of Ebling. We’d like to thank all the students who filled out the questionnaire- “How Do You Celebrate?” during the holiday season. We learned that individuals had exciting plans for the school break (a student was going to Paris for her honeymoon)- that there were many traditionalists among us for whom family and meals was the best part of the holidays and found classmates that celebrated various holidays that reflected the diversity within the student body. This information will likely inform our social media and snack fare that we share in the upcoming months.

Within Ebling we are heading towards finishing touches on group study rooms, space dedicated to students, upgrading furniture, third floor instruction areas, etc. You can still expect some 2nd and 3rd floor disruption, but hopefully not the construction noise of fall semester.

We are hopeful that the carpeting in the atrium lessens noise’s impact throughout the building. Please remember that Ebling staff is ready to help with online resources, headsets, data management strategies, historical material, printer snafus, or helping to find a quiet space for studying. Let us know how we can help.

Student Assistant, Jaime Beitel. Thanks for all the great help, Jaime. Good luck in the future!

Closed Monday in honor of MLK’s Birthday  external link

Ebling Library is closed Monday, January 15th, to honor Martin Luther King’s birthday.

Did you know that MLK referred to inequities in health care in a 1966 speech?

“Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane.”

This fascinating piece from Huffington Post tells the story behind that oft quoted statement.
