Lister Hill Library is soliciting anonymous feedback from our health professionals and students on the usefulness of Rehabilitation Reference Center (evidence-based clinical reference tool for use by rehabilitation clinicians at the point-of-care). If appropriate, please fill out this short survey on your experience with this electronic resource.
In addition to my earlier post about the construction project on the Ground level of Lister Hill Library, here are a few more details:
- Our Electronic Classroom is not available during construction. All Express Training Classes will be held in the Fletcher Room (2nd floor of the library). Just ask at the HUB desk (front desk) if you’re not sure where to go.
- There will be no access to the Ground floor until at least mid-summer. If you normally study on the Ground floor, check out the second or first floors. The second floor is quiet and additional carrels and tables will be placed on the first floor.
- Our print journals from 1995+ will be moved from the Ground floor to remote storage. Many of these are available online. However, if you need an article in one of these journals, please just submit a request. (See our FAQ that explains how to place a request.) Our Interlibrary Loan staff hope to deliver requested articles to you electronically within 24 hours.
More information will be provided as this transition progresses. If you have comments/suggestions regarding the Ground floor construction project, please let us know!

Do you use DynaMed to look up clinical care information or for teaching? The UAB Health System and Lister Hill Library want to know your thoughts on continuing UAB’s access to this evidence based point-of-care tool. Please take this quick survey to help us evaluate the effectiveness of the DynaMed database in supporting clinical activities at UAB. The survey is open until March 31, 2013.
Please join me for afternoon tea tomorrow, Wednesday, February 6, 12:30-2:30 pm in the Lister Hill Library sunroom (to the left just after you enter the library). Come take a break from the daily grind and grab a cup of tea and a sweet goody or two! While you’re here, you can ask me (the SHP liaison) any questions you may have about library resources or services or share what building changes you’d like to see. (See previous post.)
