Find out the winning name and have some cake with us tomorrow as we celebrate the opening of the new student lounge on the LHL Ground Floor. We really hope you like what we have done with the place.
The Resource of the Month for October is SIMPLE or Simulated Internal Medicine Patient Learning Experience. View over 30 virtual patients in this cool interactive tool. Use the comments to let us know what you think of this resource. And I’m curious about the guy with shortness of breath and leg swelling…
Be prepared for a change:
The National Library of Medicine recently announced a redesign of the PubMed Interface. Currently, users can preview the new interface while still accessing the old version. However, shortly the redesigned version will replace the old. All the changes are fully explained in the NLM Technical Bulletin. Take a minute to review this article to see how the redesign will affect the homepage, display formats, summary results, advanced searching, My NCBI, and other PubMed functions. Question? Ask an LHL librarian.
Help us name the new student lounge at Lister Hill Library opening on October 27th. The old copy room on the ground floor has been updated with a new look and comfortable seating, tables and chairs, and a microwave so that students can gather to eat or work together. Click here and vote for your favorite name for the student lounge between now and October 24th. And then join us at the grand opening on October 27th at noon.
On the nav bar above, find a link that will show all SOM textbooks and their availability. If there are books we don’t know about, comment below and we’ll get them added.
Updating sites for all SOM classes was getting to be difficult so we are transitioning to a single site for all School of Medicine students at http://www.lhl.uab.edu/lhlsom/. We’ll be updating the links but you should bookmark this new page or update your RSS feed. To see post specific to your class, use the categories option on the left sidebar. If you’d like to suggest any changes or improvements, please let us know.
Acland’s Cross Sectional Navigator and Dynamic Human Anatomy have been loaded onto the LHL public machines. For now, they are available only on these computers but we hope to find a way to network these CDs to provide addtional access.
