Dr. Robert Logan, PhD. gifted a digital copy of Deep Learning Techniques for Biomedical and Health Informatics in memory of Dr. Donald Lindberg.
Dr. Lindberg was a pioneer in using computer technology to improve health care. Beginning his career in 1960 at the University of Missouri as a professor of information science and pathology, he was named Director of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) in 1984 and served until 2015.
The University Libraries Honor with Books program lets patrons honor someone special with a book purchase.
Each month we provide an overview of University of Missouri authored articles in medicine and related fields as well as a featured article from a School of Medicine author with the highest journal impact factor.
May’s featured article:
“Bioinspired One Cell Culture Isolates Highly Tumorigenic and Metastatic Cancer Stem Cells Capable of Multilineage Differentiation” was co-authored by Dr. Zhenguo Liu and Dr. Xuanyou Liu of the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Center for Precision Medicine. The article was published in Advanced Science (impact factor of 15.840 in 2018), and is an open access article.
See the list of publications in medicine and related fields we retrieved for this month: https://library.muhealth.org/code/facultypubmonthly/faculty_publications.php?Month=May&Year=2020

Not sure where to start? Here are a few books that can help you be more than “not racist.”
Mizzou students, staff, and faculty can access these ebooks using the links. If you have a Daniel Boone Regional Library library card, you can check out the titles featured in the Daniel Boone Regional Libraries’ list of antiracist recommendations.
We have many more books available in print, and starting in July, you can place a copy on hold to pick up using our curbside service.

Defining and managing your online professional identity is often as important as defining and managing your in-person professional identity. One of the ways you can help define an manage your online professional identity is keeping track of your author profiles.
Scopus Author Profiles are a good place to start. Scopus automatically creates a profile for you, based on their database algorithms, and curates a list of your publications, complete with citations and h-index.
Even though the profiles are already created, you should double check your profile every so often to make sure the information (name, affiliation, and publications) is up to date.
Below is what you will see in your Scopus Author Profile.
The Health Sciences Library librarians recently engaged in projects to look up all author profiles in Scopus for the School of Medicine and School of Health Professions and has shared that information with administration. If you need help with your Scopus author profile, whether that’s updating your profile or providing a citation report, you can email the Health Sciences Library for assistance.
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month is currently celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots. This year marks the 50th anniversary of LGBTQ+ pride traditions.
With Pride Month, we wanted to highlight a few of our guides dedicated to LGBTQ resources. These guides are updated throughout the year.
Our guide, LGBTQ Resources, provides useful resources for research on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer issues, and for members, family, and friends of the LGBTQ community. Whether you are a student looking for help with your papers and projects or you are looking for reading recommendations, this guide is a good resource.
If you are interested in LGBTQ health resources, we have a guide that links to community and nationwide resources, as well as books & media recommendations in Mizzou Libraries and beyond.
Not everything on these guides are behind a paywall. If there is a resource you cannot access, we encourage you to look at your local and university library or local bookstore.
Please join the staff of the J. Otto Lottes Health Sciences Library in congratulating Levi Dolan who has been awarded an associate fellowship at the National Library of Medicine as part of the 2020-2021 cohort of fellows.
“The chance to work at the mothership for health sciences librarians is a true honor. Their current focus on building data science capabilities promises some really interesting and challenging projects for our group of fellows. Especially in a time when we are all hyperaware of the importance of access to good health information, being a part of that work is vital and impactful.”
Levi Dolan completed his MLIS from the University of Missouri-Columbia this past month. Since June 2018, Levi worked as the graduate library assistant at the J. Otto Lottes Health Sciences Library. This year, Levi also took on the role as a research assistant for the National Network of Libraries of Medicine. During his time in library school, he worked as a library supervisor and tutor at Stephens College, and was a teaching assistant and co-project manager for a Library Carpentries workshop for his practicum.
The Associate Fellowship Program is a residency fellowship hosted at the National Library of Medicine (NLM) which is a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) campus in Bethesda, Maryland. This one-year fellowship will begin in September 2020 and offers fellows a rich educational and leadership experience provided by the NLM, the world’s largest biomedical library.
Each year a small cohort of recent graduates is awarded the opportunity to attend this unique training opportunity. The 2020-2021 cohort includes two University of Missouri MLIS graduates. University of Missouri previously had one graduate named as a fellow in 1992.
Congratulations to Dr. Denice Adkins for being selected as the 2020 recipient of the Outstanding Library Advocacy Award. Adkins is an associate professor in the MU School of Information Science and Learning Technologies. She has served on the Library Committee, a standing campus committee that makes recommendations to the provost concerning the continued improvement of the library collection and library services, for three years.
Each year, the University Libraries Student Advisory Council (ULSAC) selects a member of the Mizzou community that has shown strong leadership in advocating on behalf of the University Libraries.
Denice’s passionate promotion of the University Libraries has been inspiring to many student leaders and is why ULSAC unanimously voted to present this award to her. Former ULSAC Chair Mathew Swan said, “Students who have served on the Library Committee remain impressed by her passion and thoughtfulness as the committee addresses issues relating to the Libraries. Her service on the Library Committee has been a force for positive change on Mizzou’s campus.”
Thank you for your support and dedication to the University Libraries!
Back in November 2015, Race and University Life: Readings for MU Faculty and Staff, was created as a response to anti-racist activism at the University of Missouri. This guide is often updated to continue to contribute to the anti-racism conversation on campus and in the United States.
In this guide, you will find resources listed under the following categories:
- Narratives– either firsthand accounts of racism as it is experienced by racial minorities in the United States, or journalistic reports and editorials from popular media.
- Studies- there are hundreds of studies examining various aspects of racism and how people deal with it. These are selected for strength of method, readability by the educated nonspecialist, suggested solutions.
- Books- authors of these studies are scholars in the fields of economics, geography, history, journalism, law and sociology.
- Statistics- includes both statistics related to race and racism at Mizzou and beyond Missouri.
- Underrepresented Groups at Mizzou- this includes histories, periodicals, and resources from our student unrest and activism collection in the University Archives.
- Podcasts, Video, and Social Media- recommendations of non-book resources as well as links to prominent black voices on social media
- Supporting Local- a list of black owned businesses in Columbia, Missouri.
This guide is a curated list of resources, not just for information related to Mizzou, but for information related to race and racism beyond the Mizzou campus. Not everything on this guide is behind a paywall. If there is a resource you cannot access, we encourage you to look at your local and university library or local bookstore.
Summer 2020 required and recommended online textbooks for classes in the School of Nursing, School of Health Professions and the Department of Health Management and Informatics are now available. Each course has its own corresponding tab.
We made the decision to only link to online textbooks since our physical library is closed and our print books cannot be checked out at this time.
Unfortunately, we don’t have all the books required for every class. If we don’t have your textbook, you can recommend the library purchase a copy.
Over the past year, the Health Sciences Library has been developing a new look to our website. We’ve conducted several usability tests to make sure everything you need is easier to find and our website is more user friendly.
New features include:
- Search box optimized to find articles, ebooks and databases
- Updated look and feel
- Enhanced alert systems
Update: The new website, previously scheduled to go live on Monday, June 1st, is now going live Monday, June 8. During that time, the site will be down for about an hour for the transition.
