What caught the Library's attention over the past week? It's all here for the taking.
The Welch Library Communications Team
As 2016 brings frigid forecasts, we're happy to report that medical updates arrive regardless of our chilly-willy temps. Here’s a statement from the Biomedical and Life Sciences Collection that speaks to their new additions:
Take a look at the newly relaunched online SCIENCE page, and you’ll see they’ve pulled out all the stops to create a better product. That’s not just our take on it. Here’s what Marcia McNutt, Editor-In-chief of the SCIENCE family of journals, has to say:
Yes, gifts have been opened, good tidings of joy have been exchanged, and perhaps a seasonal beverage (or two, maybe even three) have been consumed --- and now you may have some free time on your hands. So why not ring in 2016 with OUR FINAL 2015 NEWSLETTER. Go ahead and treat yourself! See how we spent the final month of the year.
Happy Holidays from the Welch Library! Thanks for all your support throughout the year, and for allowing us to assist with your science, educational and medical aspirations. In whatever way that Welch comes into your world, please know that we'll continue providing the best possible service we can.
Recently Kim Skarupski, Assistant Dean for Faculty Development, (pictured below) stopped by the Welch Journal Club to speak about “Graceful Self-Promotion.”
The conversation focuses on the participation by Welch Library and various faculty collaborators in our recently awarded National Library of Medicine BD2K Grant. Featuring Dr. Harold Lehmann, Associate Professor in the Division of Health Sciences Informatics, Data Services Librarian Jen Darragh, and Welch Informationist Rob Wright our Q&A turns into a free-flowing roundtable discussion about the wide-range of challenges surrounding BD2K.
