December: Season’s Greetings!
EndNote is a bibliographic software that you can download to your computer for free (if you’re a student, faculty, or staff member of UAB). This software allows you to organize and collect citations and PDFs as you find them, whether they are found on the web, or in one of LHL’s many resources. You can also choose and adjust citation styles with the click of a button with Cite While You Write. EndNote can save you a lot of time and effort when working on big projects.
EndNote also offers EndNote Web (a cloud-based version) and the EndNote for iPad app. All three of the programs can be synced, making EndNote available wherever you are. (Go to October’s post.)
October: Ask a Librarian Chat
The Ask a Librarian chat service, provided by the LHL reference team, is one of our most convenient, popular services. With an average of 8 seconds to respond to your chat, we answer your questions fast and efficiently. So say “Hi” and ask your question–we’ll guide you to the answer. (Go to September’s post.)
September: Visual DX
Visual DX is a beauty of a database. It holds over 100,000 high-quality, peer-reviewed images that can aid clinicians and students alike. The database is easy to navigate on your desktop and mobile device. (Go to August’s post.)
July/August: Women’s Health Resources
The month of July was dedicated to Women’s Health. The three posting highlighted The National Library of Medicine’s resources, The National Institutes of Health online course, The Science of Sex and Gender in Human Health, and Lister Hill Library’s Libguide for Women’s Health Resources.
Anatomy.TV is a high quality student resource and clinical tool. It produces medically accurate 3D images of human anatomy. Along with animated, interactive images Anatomy.TV offers videos demonstrating real-life images of human body movement. With the use of cadavers, real-life videos of internal movement, in a “how things work” type tutorial. (Go to June’s post.)
In addition to the intriguing images curated in Anatomy.TV, sub-posts this month feature Anatomy-inspired works of art, old and modern.

March: Express Training Videos on Vimeo
The Express Training workshops this year, led by Lister Hill Librarians, covered topics from Finding Full Text, to EndNote, to searching PubMed, Scopus & CINAHL. Understanding that sometimes people need a refresher course after a workshop, the librarians began posting the online Express Training classes on vimeo.
These recorded classes are still available on our Express Training @ LHL Guide. (Go to April’s post.)
