From Micromedex to Lexicomp  external link

UW’s Micromedex Subscription is ending in February 2019. Lexicomp Access will expand!

Here is the direct link to Lexicomp.

Both Micromedex and Lexicomp subscriptions offer similar components including drug information, calculators, toxicology, and IV information. The differences are mainly in presentation, not content. Many academic medical centers have moved to one vendor for this reference service for standardization and to save money.

An in-depth analysis and comparison was conducted at UW by a committee that included nurses, providers, and representatives from in IS, Pharmacy, Patient Education, SMPH, Swedish American Health, Community Connect, and Ebling Library.
The resulting decision expands Lexicomp access across the organization while ending the Micromedex subscription effective February 2019.

For further information.

Ebling Library’s New Director  external link

The Ebling Library is pleased to announce that Christopher Hooper-Lane, MA, AHIP, has been named Director of Ebling Library.

Over the past year Chris served as the interim director of Ebling Library. In that position, Chris smoothly moved the library forward in several substantive ways. He guided the library components associated with the UW School of Medicine and Public Health’s (SMPH) accreditation process as well as SMPH’s recent curriculum transformation, and the Health Sciences Learning Center’s space and access enhancements. Chris also worked to develop new (and reinforce established) lines of communication internally with Ebling staff members as well as externally with UW campus libraries and academic institutions beyond our borders.

Chris has been a member of the Ebling Library staff since 2000 holding several leadership positions including the clinical sciences team lead, liaison to medical school and coordinator of library instruction, reference, and circulation services. Prior to his work at the UW, Chris was head librarian at the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON) and the supervisor of the document delivery and an engineering reference librarian at the Colorado School of Mines. Chris received an MA in Library Science and BS degrees in Education/Zoology here at the UW. Chris has also worked as a science teacher in the Madison School District.

Chris looks forward to working with a myriad of campus constituents, including the School of Pharmacy, School of Nursing, the School of Medicine & Public Health, UW Hospital and Clinics, and the UW campus libraries. The information and communication landscape that Ebling Library serves is vast, both in-house and virtually. Chris will be collaborating with colleagues in a variety of initiatives to bring our online and print resources, instruction, staff, and services to those with constantly evolving resource and research needs.

Please join us in congratulating Chris as he continues to grow his leadership role as Director of Ebling Library. Chris can be reached at: christopher.hooperlane@wisc.edu or 608 263-9324.

World War 1, a French Perspective  external link

One hundred years ago, the Great War, later referred to as World War 1 was in its last critical months, ending on November 11th, 1918. Millions of soldiers and civilians had been killed or maimed, and tens of thousands more suffered from shell shock and side effects of exposure to mustard gas. Attendant to the cruelties of war were advances in military triage, surgery, prosthetics, plastic surgery and battlefield anesthetics in the allied troops, including those in France.

Ebling Library’s Rare Books & Special Collections recently purchased the extraordinary Science et Devouement le Service de sante, la Croix-Rouge, les oeuvres de solidarite de guerre et d’apres guerre, 1917-1922. [Science and Devotion to the Health Service, the Red Cross, works of Solidarity for war and post-war]. It is an monumental work celebrating the work and sacrifice of the Red Cross and associated medical and nursing services during WWI.

The lavish volume includes prints of narrative paintings, evocative photographs of injuries and surgical repair and commentary on the politics, economics, and social and cultural place of war in France’s medical and military history.The book, purchased through a generosity of the Maurice Richardson Library Fund, helping Ebling to add to its world-class historical collections.

Science et Devouement
, originally available only through subscription (ours is #1636) is currently in a display case in the Historical Reading Room on the 3rd floor of Ebling Library. Just pop into Room 3315, and Micaela Sullivan-Fowler can let you study through this important volume. Also, look for more WWI books this fall as we plan to do a display on WWI and the 1918 Influenza epidemic. Questions? Contact micaela.sullivan-fowler@wisc.edu

For those who think in a linear fashion, this timeline may be of interest.

—————————————-

Electronic Laboratory Notebooks in the Social Sciences
Tuesday, July 24th, 2018
12-1:30PM
Social Science Building, Room 8417

Electronic Laboratory Notebooks (ELNs), despite their name, are useful not only to lab scientists, but also to researchers in any field who need to record notes, collect and analyze digital data, and share research findings with collaborators. Social scientists and humanities researchers interested in making the switch from paper notebooks or other online tools should come to this informational session on adopting and using LabArchives. Examples of notebook usage in the social sciences will be shown, and attendees will have ample time for questions. Pizza and beverages will be available for registered attendees – register online.

Registration is encouraged but not required.

Electronic Lab Notebooks Day
Wednesday, July 25th, 2018
12-4PM
Engineering Hall, Room 1610

Adopting an Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN) can help researchers boost productivity, engage collaborators, and maintain data security. Come for an afternoon of personalized training and campus user stories about LabArchives, the ELN solution on campus. Sessions will be useful for ELN newbies and current users alike! More details/updated panelist lists will be available on our website, as well as a registration form.

Registration is encouraged but not required.
Agenda
• 12:00 – 1:15pm Introduction to LabArchives

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…
