Finding Books at the Health Sciences Library

If you search for books, you might notice the system looks a bit different. The Health Sciences Library recently made some changes to make your book searches easier and more complete.

If you know the exact book you are looking for, use our book finder. It will search all our available books, both print and ebooks. If we don’t have it, it will link you to a request form to borrow it from another library.

Don’t have a specific title in mind? Use our book search on the health sciences library home page or go directly to the book search with this link.

LGBTQ Library Resources at Mizzou

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month is currently celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots. 

With Pride Month, we wanted to highlight a few of our guides dedicated to LGBTQ resources. These guides are updated throughout the year.

Our guide, LGBTQ Resources, provides useful resources for research on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer issues, and for members, family, and friends of the LGBTQ community. Whether you are a student looking for help with your papers and projects or you are looking for reading recommendations, this guide is a good resource.

If you are interested in LGBTQ health resources, we have a guide that links to community and nationwide resources, as well as books & media recommendations in Mizzou Libraries and beyond.

Not everything on these guides are 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.

June 8: NextGen Precision Discovery Series webinar

The fifth installment of the NextGen Precision Health Discovery Series, titled “The Genomics Core at MU and NextGen Precision Health,” will be held virtually at noon on Tuesday, June 8. The speaker, Wes Warren, PhD, is a professor of Genomics at the University of Missouri Bond Life Sciences Center and he is an internationally recognized expert in comparative genomics.

In this webinar, Dr. Warren will explore how over the last 10 years, “next-generation” sequencing (NGS) has created a paradigm shift in biological examination of disease as the sequencing instrument has become the modern era digital microscope of investigation. As a central campus/system resource, the MU DNA Core facility promises to substantially increase the development of system-wide research networks and impact all levels of multi-disciplinary basic, biomedical and clinical research. Dr. Warren will discuss the MU Tier 1 sequencing initiative and more generally the power of sequencing to address all types of biological questions with varied starting points, including the use of single cell technology.

Register here for the June 8 webinar to receive a Zoom link.

The NextGen Precision Health Discovery Series provides learning opportunities for UM System faculty and staff across disciplines, the statewide community and our other partners to learn about the scope of precision health research and identify potential collaborative opportunities. The series consists of monthly lectures geared toward a broad multidisciplinary audience so all can participate and appreciate the spectrum of precision health efforts.
