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.

Laura Buck, senior library information specialist at the Zalk Veterinary Medical Library, has received a 2019 College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) Dean’s Impact Award.
Each year, the Dean recognizes individuals who “have had significant positive impact on college programs.” Laura’s nominating letters pointed to her helpfulness, friendliness, and dedication to everyone in the College.
Laura began her service with the University of Missouri Libraries in 1989, moving to the CVM’s Zalk Veterinary Medical Library in 1999. One nomination cited her “sincere dedication, can-do attitude, and excellent organizational skills.” Another noted, “she has always been a positive force in the library, keeping the needs of the students, faculty, and staff foremost in her mind.” Another called her “reliable and helpful,” while yet another called her “an essential, vital resource within the library.” One nominating letter wrote of Laura, “She is the institutional memory of the library. Wouldn’t it be cool on her 30th year at MU that she received this well-deserved award?”
It is, indeed, cool that Laura has received this award. Congratulations, Laura, and thank you for 30 years of supporting the University Libraries’ Cycle of Success.
