Welcome to David Merz!

We are pleased to welcome David Merz to the Health Sciences Library! David joined us this summer, working in the circulation department.

A St. Louis native, David currently studying Library and Information Science at Mizzou, expecting to graduate in May 2020. When he isn’t working or studying, he enjoys painting (miniatures mostly), discussing concepts in philosophy, and going for extended bike rides.

When asked why he liked libraries, David said “I have had a deep affection for reading and for learning new things for as long as I can remember, so it’s no real surprise that a life-long learner would be drawn to an institution that houses knowledge.”

Welcome to the Health Sciences Library team, David!

home J. Otto Lottes Health Sciences Library, Resources and Services Heads up! PubMed Changes Coming This Fall

Heads up! PubMed Changes Coming This Fall

PubMed will be getting a new look this fall. You should see major improvements to how PubMed looks and performs, both on your desktop and mobile devices.

Read more about the changes.

You can preview the new interface at PubMed Labs.

The current timeline is for PubMed to be switched to the new version in September. Old and new PubMed will run concurrently for a few months, and then old PubMed will be retired at the end of the year.

Of course, these dates could change and we will keep you updated.
