If you used the examples in the LHLGuide on citing sources you may have included “Available at” before your url in the citations. This is not included in the most recent version of the AMA Guide. Our LHL Guide has been corrected. If you included “Available at” I marked it out but did not count that against you in the points. Let me know if you have questions.

We’ve published a new Guide with resources from both Lister Hill and Sterne libraries about cultures in general and how culture affects health care. Links to databases, journals, print and e-books are all provided, as well as tips on researching cultures.
The Cultural Competencies in Health Care Guide is freely available and located at http://libguides.lhl.uab.edu/culture.
You are all invited to attend this historial lecture at LHL on Thursday.

Based directly on user feedback, we’ve added a new anatomy resource, e-Anatomy from IMIAOS. Feedback let us know that this is a great source for both basic anatomy and radiological images. Use the scroll option to move through each image giving you a real-life view. Turn labels on or off to test your knowledge. We hope this new tool is helpful!
Anyone looking for the EBM tools that Dr. Shaneyfelt referred to last week should see Essential Evidence Plus. Go to Decision Support Tools and Calculators and select Epidemiology. There you will find these two tools.
Hope this helps.
Understand all the ins and outs of evidence based medicine and which articles are scientifically sound and clinically relevant? Me neither. That’s why this new e-book, How to Read a Paper: the Basics of Evidence Based Medicine is a great resource for reviewing different types of papers and how each is analyzed for quality.
