We’re glad to see the campus sidewalks and libraries filling up with students again, now that the fall semester is underway. You’re always welcome in the libraries! At the Health Sciences Library, we’re celebrating the completion of the new PCCLC which has created a great learning environment for students in the School of Medicine. If you haven’t already, come try out one of our new benches in the library entrance. It’s a great place to stop for a moment and wait for a friend.
We’re welcoming three new staff members this fall, one full time and two part-time, as we lost two full-time evening and weekend staff back in June.Watch for their profiles in other communications.
We’re also glad to announce that we will not have to make the dreaded major journal cut to our online collection for January 2018. This cut would have been an enormous loss for all of us, and we’re thankful to our administration that we will only need to trim and swap journal titles, but not slash them.
We all were amazed by the solar eclipse and want to share the experience with others. The libraries have collected eclipse glasses to share with Astronomers without Borders to share with our neighbors in South America and Southeast Asia for their total eclipse in 2019. Thanks for your contributions! Currently, we are aiding the Columbia Public Schools in their partnering with Houston Public Schools by collecting children’s books to send to families who suffered extensive losses during Hurricane Harvey.
See you in the library!

Get involved with Health Sciences Research Day!
The annual MU HSRD provides an intellectual forum for original research and educational innovations by undergraduate, medical, nursing, and health professions students, as well as pre/post-doctoral trainees and residents working with faculty in the Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Health Professions. The event will take place in the Acuff Atrium and the gallery of the new Medical Education Building on November 9, 2017 9-11 AM and/or 1-3 PM. We are anticipating a record number of poster presentations this year and the School of Medicine Research Council encourages YOU to participate as a poster judge to provide a positive learning experience for our trainees. Your participation in HSRD is an excellent opportunity to explore the breadth of research being conducted in Health Sciences at Mizzou AND to network with faculty across the Health Sciences. New and Junior faculty are strongly encouraged to participate.
We are implementing a host of new initiatives to HSRD 2017—including short oral presentations by our Deans’ Award Winners, expansion into our brand new PCCLC gallery, and some surprises that you don’t want to miss! Our goal is to recruit 100 faculty to serve as poster judges. Each poster will be visited by two faculty judges. Please consider volunteering to judge one or both of the poster sessions described below.
Category I (9-11AM) – Undergraduate and Medical Students (including summer research fellows)
- Section A: Clinical Science (involving human participants)
- Section B: Basic Science
Category II (1-3PM) – Graduate Students/Postdoctoral Research Fellows, Medical Fellows and Residents
- Section A: Clinical Science (involving human participants)
- Section B: Basic Science
If you have not already signed up, please inform Debbie Taylor firstname.lastname@example.org of your willingness to serve as a judge and include: the time of day (Category) for which you are available, and the Section (Clinical or Basic) that is most in line with your expertise. We thank you in advance. For those faculty unable to commit to judging posters, please attend the sessions to view the extraordinary work being conducted in the Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Health Professions at MU.
The School and the Department with the highest ratio of judges to eligible faculty will earn “bragging rights” for HSRD 2017.
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, Role of Inactivity in Chronic Diseases: Evolutionary Insight and Pathophysiological Mechanisms, was co-authored by Dr. Frank W. Booth, Dr. Christian K. Roberts, Dr. John P. Thyfault, Dr. Gregory N. Ruegsegger and Dr. Ryan G. Toedebusch of the Department of Biomedical Sciences, Department of Medical Pharmacology and Physiology, Department of Nutrition and Exercise Physiology, Dalton Cardiovascular Research, and Cardiovascular Division, Department of Medicine. The article was published in Physiological Reviews (impact factor 27.312 in 2016).

The latest article in our open access article series features several University of Missouri faculty and staff:
- Robert Bell is a Physician Assistant in neurological surgery and serves as a clinical instructor at the School of Medicine.
- Melody Burks is a service line specialist nurse in the neuroscience intensive care unit.
- Dr. Premkumar Nattanmai is an assistant professor for clinical neurology, and co-director of the neuroscience intensive care unit.
This research team’s article, A new strategy in noncritical nurse care stroke education: a hybrid simulation pilot study, was published in Electronic Physician in May 2017. Electronic Physician is an open access journal, peer-reviewed journal, that publishes articles in all areas of medical and health sciences. This completely open access journal immediately makes their articles available upon publication, which allows for maximum sharing ability on the new strategy for stroke education this article discusses.
This article discusses a new hybrid simulation approach for education of neurosciences nurses involved in the car of neurocritical care patients. “Simulation creates a learning environment that allows for improving technical and non-technical skills, improving efficiency, practicing rare life-threatening emergencies, and fostering improved attitudes toward teamwork.” This combination of lecture and high-fidelity manikin simulation significantly improved nurses’ understanding and managing of patients in the neuroscience intensive care unit.

ClinicalKey Content Update:
Please note: A dosage error for hydromorphone HCL (in Child and Adolescent ≥50 kg) has been found and corrected in The Harriet Lane Handbook, 21st edition. The original text indicated that the dose was weight-based, and it is not. The correct text is as follows:
Child and adolescent (≥50 kg; NOTE: doses are NOT weight-based):
IV: 0.2–0.6 mg/dose Q2–4 hr PRN

Join us on September 25th at 1 pm in Hulston Hall 7 for the next event in our series about this year’s One Read Program pick, Infamy: The Shocking Story of the Japanese American Internment in World War II by Richard Reeves. Dr. Jacqueline Font-Guzmán, a professor of Law at Creighton University and a certified mediator and arbitrator by the Puerto Rico Supreme Court, will present. Her research explores healthcare disparities, law, and conflict engagement in addition to how marginalized individuals create counter-narratives to address institutional injustice.
Snacks will be provided thanks to the Friends of the University of Missouri Libraries.
The One Read Program, which promotes conversations regarding diversity, inclusion, and social justice through students, faculty, and staff reading a particular book together, is sponsored by Mizzou Law and Mizzou Libraries. For more information, see this guide or visit the exhibit through September 29. Copies of the book are available for checkout.
For Hope Martin, pastels “have a messy, immediate result” that she finds appealing. In her pastel paintings, the artist creates close- ups of animals, people, and objects, inviting us to examine the details along with her. See the distinctive stripes of a tabby cat looking back at you. Follow the soft lines of a young girl sneaking a read in the dark. Glory in the glowing ruby red of berries dangling in the sunlight.
These works and more will be on display at the library through the fall semester.
Last week, we were honored to celebrate Michael Spears and his 20 years of service at the University of Missouri. During the celebration, Michael was presented his 20 years of service certificate to commemorate his time and hard work at Mizzou. Anyone who uses our health sciences library website has benefited from Mike’s skills where his programming helps get our web visitors to the information they need smoothly and quickly.
All of our staff rely on Mike for his patient and effective approach to troubleshooting. He has a special gift for working with people at all levels of computer expertise, and never talks down to someone who knows less than he does.
We want to congratulate Mike on his 20 years and thank him for making a difference in quality of their computing experience for both library staff and library users.
