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!
Congratulations to Mizzou SISLT Associate Professors Jenny Bossaller and Denise Adkins, Deb Ward, Director of the University of Missouri Health Sciences Library and Chris Pryor, Missouri Coordinator for the National Network of the Libraries of Medicine, Mid-Continental Region, for receiving a grant from Institute of Museum and Library Services.
“Librarians as Catalysts for Healthy Communities” is a three-year project that will develop an interdisciplinary community health information curriculum and create a network of practice throughout the Midwest that is focused on meeting information needs in rural and urban undeserved populations.

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.
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.
ORCID iDs can help you distinguish yourself from others with a similar name, increases visibility and impact of your scholarly publications, and helps you affiliate with the University of Missouri. Your ORCID can only do this if you set your profile to public!
You may inadvertently set your privacy setting to Only Me, which means only you can view the information on your profile.
When others search for you, they only see No public information available. No one will see your affiliation, publications or contact information. We know your privacy is important, but ORCID does not store any non-personal data.
In your privacy settings, be sure to change the setting from the red Only Me to the green Everyone.
Need help with privacy settings or setting up your ORCID iD? Please email email@example.com
