Levi Dolan Chosen as a NLM Associate Fellow

Please join the staff of the J. Otto Lottes Health Sciences Library in congratulating Levi Dolan who has been awarded an associate fellowship at the National Library of Medicine as part of the 2020-2021 cohort of fellows.

“The chance to work at the mothership for health sciences librarians is a true honor.  Their current focus on building data science capabilities promises some really interesting and challenging projects for our group of fellows.  Especially in a time when we are all hyperaware of the importance of access to good health information, being a part of that work is vital and impactful.”

Levi Dolan completed his MLIS from the University of Missouri-Columbia this past month.  Since June 2018, Levi worked as the graduate library assistant at the J. Otto Lottes Health Sciences Library. This year, Levi also took on the role as a research assistant for the National Network of Libraries of Medicine.  During his time in library school, he worked as a library supervisor and tutor at Stephens College, and was a teaching assistant and co-project manager for a Library Carpentries workshop for his practicum.

The Associate Fellowship Program is a residency fellowship hosted at the National Library of Medicine (NLM) which is a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) campus in Bethesda, Maryland. This one-year fellowship will begin in September 2020 and offers fellows a rich educational and leadership experience provided by the NLM, the world’s largest biomedical library.

Each year a small cohort of recent graduates is awarded the opportunity to attend this unique training opportunity. The 2020-2021 cohort includes two University of Missouri MLIS graduates. University of Missouri previously had one graduate named as a fellow in 1992.

home Ellis Library, Gateway Carousel, Gateway Carousel ELTC, Gateway Carousel HSL, Resources and Services, Staff news Race and University Life: Readings for MU Faculty and Staff

Race and University Life: Readings for MU Faculty and Staff

Back in November 2015, Race and University Life: Readings for MU Faculty and Staff, was created as a response to anti-racist activism at the University of Missouri. This guide is often updated to continue to contribute to the anti-racism conversation on campus and in the United States.

In this guide, you will find resources listed under the following categories:

  • Narratives– either firsthand accounts of racism as it is experienced by racial minorities in the United States, or journalistic reports and editorials from popular media.
  • Studies- there are hundreds of studies examining various aspects of racism and how people deal with it. These are selected for strength of method, readability by the educated nonspecialist, suggested solutions.
  • Books- authors of these studies are scholars in the fields of economics, geography, history, journalism, law and sociology.
  • Statistics- includes both statistics related to race and racism at Mizzou and beyond Missouri.
  • Underrepresented Groups at Mizzou- this includes histories, periodicals, and resources from our student unrest and activism collection in the University Archives.
  • Podcasts, Video, and Social Media- recommendations of non-book resources as well as links to prominent black voices on social media
  • Supporting Local- a list of black owned businesses in Columbia, Missouri.

This guide is a curated list of resources, not just for information related to Mizzou, but for information related to race and racism beyond the Mizzou campus. Not everything on this guide is behind a paywall. If there is a resource you cannot access, we encourage you to look at your local and university library or local bookstore.

Going up for Promotion and Tenure? Contact the Health Sciences Library to Save you Time

Working on your promotion and tenure packet? Perhaps your third year review? Contact the Health Sciences Library to save you time.

Your subject librarian can gather the relevant metrics to show the impact and quality of your work. These metrics can include traditional metrics like impact factor and acceptances rates, and non-traditional metrics like almetrics. (Not all journals will have impact factors, so non-traditional metrics are a good alternative to consider when establishing the quality and impact of your work.)

To get the process started, email us for a consultation to discuss what metrics you need for your P&T materials, as well as other services available to you.

home Resources and Services Make Your Research Open

Make Your Research Open

At the University Libraries, we’re committed to making access to research more sustainable, affordable and open. And we need your help!

In traditional publishing models, scholars surrender their copyright to commercial publishers in order to disseminate their research findings in scholarly journals. Publishers then sell or rent that same content back to the institution through journal subscriptions—at ever increasing prices. This unsustainable practice costs institutions millions of dollars every year and creates barriers to access for many. Open Access publishing encourages scholars to retain their rights and make their work freely available online, increasing the availability and impact of research.  

What You Can Do:  

Retain Your Rights: No matter where you publish, the single most important thing you can do to make scholarly publishing more sustainable and equitable is Retain Your Rights. It’s your copyright – don’t just sign it away! Contracts are often negotiable. And read those agreements: you may have more rights to share your research than you realize.  

Know Your Options: Choose the right venue for your research and know your Open Access options. If you’re an editor or manuscript reviewer, ask about the journal’s OA options. 

Share Your Work: Deposit your research in MOspace, MU’s Digital Institutional Repository. Submitting your work to MOspace is easy. Just log in with your SSO and complete the Creative Commons license.

Learn More: Talk with your Subject Specialist about Open Access in your area or request a Zoom workshop for your department, team or lab.
