The following Nature Reviews titles have been reinstated at the University of Missouri Libraries.
In 2016, we lost access to the Nature Reviews titles when they were cancelled by the 4-campus MERLIN consortium. Between 2007-2016, the MERLIN consortium was forced to cut over $1,000,000 to balance their budget in the face of unending subscription increases. In 2018, we made some strategic cancellations of some low use, low impact journals in order to reinstate access to the Nature Reviews titles.
We rely on the 4-campus MERLIN library consortium to provide access to over $323,000 in subscriptions to many key online journals and databases in the health sciences, and are facing the prospect of another large cut this year owing to annual subscription increases far beyond normal inflation.

Celebrate Black History Month in Ellis Library with our display of University Libraries materials “These New Giants.” The display celebrates Black activism in the 20th century, from the First World War through the Civil Rights Movement. These new giants, as Lorraine Hansberry named them, began to reshape America by fighting for justice in war, in protest, and in art. As she concludes in her photo essay “The Movement,” “It is for us, now, to create an America that deserves them.” On display through February in the Ellis Library Colonnade.
In America, one of every four people will die from heart disease. In order to raise awareness and reduce the risk of heart disease, the American Heart Association designated February American Heart Month. As the American Heart Association works to raise awareness, it is also important to increase understanding of heart diseases. Learn about good fats, and bad fats, how ethnicity factors into heart disease and the implications of alcohol and medications. Million Hearts has tools to assist in medication adherence. Another helpful tool is the American Heart Associations guidelines for care.
Book Display Highlights:
Heart Failure: A Colour Handbook by Michael Sosin and his associates gives a comprehensive review of heart failure. This book utilizes studies in evidence based medicine to examine causes, pathophysiology, investigation, diagnosis and treatment (both pharmacological and non-pharmacological) of heart failure. The dynamic colored illustrations, electrocardiograms, electrocardiograms and radiographic images assist in understanding and make this book an interesting read. With chapters on beta blockers, inotropes, channel blockers, antiarrhythmic therapy, and management of heart failure this book is educational and interesting.
In Recognizing and Surviving Heart Attacks and Strokes: Lifesaving Advice you Need Now by Glenn O Turner and Mark Bruce Rosin, the early warning signs of a heart attack are addressed. Turner addresses the need to educate patients on how to recognize a heart attack so they can get to a hospital in time. Further, Turner reviews methods of treatment that make the most impact when time is crucial.
Check out these books and many more at the Health Sciences Library. The book display is located across from the circulation desk, to the right of the main doors.
Each month we provide an overview of University of Missouri authored articles in medicine and related fields, and a featured article from a School of Medicine author with the highest journal impact factor.
This month’s featured article is “Desumoylase Senp6 Maintains Osteochondroprogenitor Homeostasis by Suppressing the P53 Pathway”, and is co-authored by Dr. Hong Dou and Dr. Edward Yeh of the Center for Precision Medicine, Department of Medicine. The article was published in Nature Communications (impact factor 12.124 in 2016).

Each new semester brings fresh challenges for everyone on campus. We get a revived sense of commitment to our goals and many of us are presented with new opportunities for learning, growth, and positive change. It’s exciting! But concerns about how to make the most of personal time and energy to meet them is a theme that runs just below the surface. We are constantly reminded that we have limitations. There is one way you may not have thought of to help you with this.
Some successful folks say that one of their secrets is knowing when to get professional assistance from a librarian. I had a new MU graduate from the School of Health Professions once tell me that he was so sorry that he waited until his last semester to take advantage of librarian services. “I could have done so much better, if only I had gotten the kind of help that I needed, but was not fully aware of how much it could mean. It would have not only saved me time, but also would have made me a more successful student! What a difference that made in my last semester!”
I hope you’ll not only note, but also act on some of the suggestions from our Information Services Librarians regarding how to maximize your time in researching and managing the information you find. Spending an hour in a short educational session with a librarian or talking with a librarian for 15 minutes about your research topic could save you time, and point you in a more productive direction.
Happy researching this semester!
Join us for a close-up look at science in this showcase by Lisa Bartlett, featuring large-scale life forms painted in vibrant colors.
In the abstract work Science of Trees, the strength and beauty of trees is depicted with the use of bright primary colors and bold vertical lines, the intricate pattern of wood knots, and the interspersed areas of verdant green tones and grayer dappled shading.
Science of Rabbits shows the viewer a vivid strand of DNA carrying genetic instructions for reproduction aligned with a multi-color rabbit, a creature well known for its reproductive abilities.
Zoom in on a green bottle fly with Sciences of Flies. Discover the poetry of the iridescent green body, beautifully segmented transparent wings, huge eyes and angular legs.
These works and more will be on display throughout the Spring Semester. We are honored to have Lisa as our featured artist this semester. Additional works by the artist can be seen at her ARTlandish Gallery in the North Village Art District on Walnut Street.
On January 25th-26th, the first floor will be restricted to third year medical students for testing between the hours of 7 AM to 5:30 PM. Wish our M3’s luck!
