Update Now June 3rd: New Health Sciences Library Website To Go Live

Over the past year, the Health Sciences Library has been developing a new look to our website. We’ve conducted several usability tests to make sure everything you need is easier to find and our website is more user friendly.

New features include:

  • Search box optimized to find articles, ebooks and databases
  • Updated look and feel
  • Enhanced alert systems

Update: The new website, previously scheduled to go live on Monday, June 1st, is now going live Wednesday, June 3rd. During that time, the site will be down for about an hour for the transition.

If you need assistance, please email asklibrary@health.missouri.edu

What To Do With Your Health Sciences Library Books

UPDATE: Due Dates have been extended until May 31.

Update on Library Services

As part of our phased-in plan to increase library services, the book drop at the west entrance of Ellis Library (near Speaker’s Circle) is open. You may return or renew library books. Because we have limited staff in the building, there will be a delay in staff checking in your items, and returned items may not be removed immediately from your account.

Starting June 1, we will resume our scan and deliver service. The Libraries will retrieve and scan periodical articles, book chapters, proceedings, technical reports, government documents and any part of other printed publications held in the Mizzou Libraries.

The Libraries plan to offer pre-arranged check out of books, with curbside pickup, on July 1.

Even though the buildings will remain closed for awhile, the Libraries will continue reference chat, remote consultations and instructional support throughout the summer.

Plans are being made for how to safely open Ellis Library and the specialized libraries for the fall semester.

Pubmed 2.0 Scheduled to go Live Mid May

This month you should notice a new look to Pubmed.

Highlights of new Pubmed include:

  • Ability to cite references quickly in your preferred citation style format (AMA, APA, NLM, or MLA)
  • Best Match sorting algorithm that brings the most relevant results to the top of your search results
  • Better searching capabilities on your mobile device with a consistent look throughout all devices
  • Better at finding synonyms and accounting for British/American spelling differences.

The new PubMed still includes the features you rely on for searching, as well as saving and sharing your results:

  • Save your search results to a file, email your results to yourself or a colleague, or send your results to a clipboard, collection, or your NCBI My Bibliography
  • Advanced search page to search for terms in a specific field, see the search details, review your search history and combine searches to create complex search strings
  • Save your search and create an email alert. Any saved searches and settings you previously created should be transferred automatically.

The National Library of Medicine has created a page with links to PubMed tutorials and handouts.
