Cycle of Success: Marybeth Bohn, Orthopedic Surgery

Cycle of Success is the idea that libraries, faculty, and students are linked; for one to truly succeed, we must all succeed. The path to success is formed by the connections between University of Missouri Libraries and faculty members, between faculty members and students, and between students and the libraries that serve them. More than just success, this is also a connection of mutual respect, support, and commitment to forward-thinking research.

 

Marybeth Bohn

 

Maryboth Bohn is the executive assistant to Dr. James P. Stannard, MD. in the Missouri Orthopedic Institute.  Marybeth works in the academic office and assists with administrative paperwork. With a tight deadline approaching, and needing the information by the end of the business day, Marybeth contacted the health sciences library to ask for help in gathering metrics for promotion and tenure. Katy Emerson, Library Specialist Sr. in Interlibrary Loan, gave Marybeth some information on the possible metrics she could use for the Promotion and Tenure packet, while Taira Meadowcroft, Information Services Librarian, and Rachel Alexander, Graduate Library Assistant, gathered the metrics. It was definitely a great collaborative effort! 
 

Rachel Alexander

 

"I work in a fast-paced office assisting Dr. Stannard with his administrative work. Much of that includes academic activities such as reviewing P&T packets, writing letters, and gathering articles for research. If it weren't for the help of the librarians in the Health Science Library, I would be in dire straits! They come to my rescue often! They are quick, upbeat, and always helpful. Recently, I needed publication metrics for a P&T review. Two of the librarians stopped what they were doing to help me and speed things along. They also took the time to explain what everything meant. I also appreciate their helpfulness in pulling articles for me when I am not able to access the articles myself. I have used the online request system and their online chat system quite easily and have always received excellent assistance. Don't hesitate to ask a friendly librarian!"

Message from the Director: Deborah Ward


Change is in the air, and at the Health Sciences Libraries, we are changing too. At the same time, we are staying true to our mission of providing the lasting, community-wide benefits of access to vital information and services that make a difference to our users. We continue to seek new ways to bring value to the teaching and learning experience, patient care excellence, and research efforts.

While we regret that the budget realities we all face have caused us to cancel journal titles this year, and more will follow next year, we hope we can continue to propel your success through access channels rather than the ownership model that is becoming more difficult for all libraries to sustain. 


Be sure to follow our library to learn more about the work we are engaged in, and we look forward to furthering our work with all of you.

Gemille Purnell headed to Washington D.C.

Gemille Purnell, a graduate library assistant with the Health Sciences Library, recently won a scholarship to attend the Consumer Food Safety Education Conference, January 25th-27th in Washington D.C. 

Gemille was among twelve awardees chosen by the committee of the non-profit Partnership for Food Safety Education. In order to be eligible for this opportunity, Gemille had to complete an application, write an essay on how attending the conference would have a positive impact on her professional future, and have a faculty member submit a letter of recommendation. 

When asked why she decided to apply for this scholarship, Gemille said "food safety is a public health concern that often gets overlooked, so I felt this conference would be a great opportunity for me to enhance my professional readiness." 

Congratulations Gemille!

home J. Otto Lottes Health Sciences Library, Resources and Services Downs and Dalabih: The risk of shorter fasting time for pediatric deep sedation (Open Access Article)

Downs and Dalabih: The risk of shorter fasting time for pediatric deep sedation (Open Access Article)

This week's Open Access article features two University of Missouri Faculty. 

  • Dr. Craig Downs, DO., is an Assistant Professor of Clinical Child Health. Dr. Downs primary interest is pediatric critical care. 
  • Dr. Abdallah Dalabih, MD., MBA, is an Assistant Professor of Clinical Child Health. He is involved in clinical research in pediatric critical care and sedatio, with one other study accepted for publication and four others that are in the process of submission. Those four projects will be published by two medical students and two pediatric residents all as first authors. Click here for Dr. Dalabih's faculty profile. 

Dr. Downs, Dr. Dalabih, and their research team published in Anesthesia: Essays and Researches, an open access peer-reviewed international journal by the Pan Arab Federation of Societies of Anesthesiologists. The journal covers technical and clinical studies related to Anesthesia, pain management, intensive care and related topics including ethical and social issues.

Their research in The risk of shorter fasting time for pediatric deep sedation, investigates that safety of a shorter fasting time compared to a longer fasting time before pediatric procedural sedation and analgesia. The current guideline, adopted by the American Academy of Pediatrics, calls for prolonged fasting times. This prospective observational study tries to identify the association between fasting times and complications related to sedation. 

 

Dr. Dalabih took the time to answer some questions we had about open access:

Why did you choose to publish in an Open Access journal?

We selected a journal that is indexed at PubMed so it would be easy to find and that can be accessed all over the world. The journal of Anesthesia: Essays and Researches is an open access journal and is indexed at PubMed with no publication fees, so we elected that journal to showcase our research project.

Would you publish in an Open Access journal again?  If so, why?

Yes, with the increased prices of subscriptions, libraries and physicians are having some difficulty accessing articles they need. This is especially true at countries with poor economies. Open access journals allows those physicians to benefit from the study and will increase the distribution.
