Each month we provide an overview of University of Missouri authored articles in medicine and related fields as well as a featured article from a School of Medicine author with the highest journal impact factor.
The December 2020 featured article, “Docking of acetyl-CoA carboxylase to the plastid envelope membrane attenuates fatty acid production in plants” , was co-authored by Dr. Steven Van Doren and Dr. Jay Thelen of the Department of Biochemistry. The article was published in Nature Communications (impact factor of 12.121 in 2019).
This month we are also featuring the 2020 publications of Dr. Richard Barohn as he was new to MU in 2020. Among his many 2020 publications, Dr. Barohn had two articles published in JAMA Neurology (impact factor 13.608 in 2019):

This year, the campus is facing the task of reducing our journal costs by $1.2 million for FY2021, which amounts to a 20% reduction compounded by additional subscription cuts at the UM System level.
What does this mean for you?
- We will be able to retain access to most of the high use journals, and the highly ranked journals with impact factors in the top quartile.
- We will need to substitute interlibrary loan & pay per view for some of the most expensive journals, especially the ones costing $10,000/year or more.
- The library will pay to get any articles you need in journals outside of our subscriptions. The button provides the most convenient way to request articles. You can also submit article requests using this form.

The Health Sciences Library will have the following hours for the Spring 2021 semester. Badge access is still required.
Monday – Friday: 10am-6pm
University Libraries Hours
As always, we are available virtually via phone, email, chat, and Zoom.
Library personnel will carefully assess how the new service models are working and will determine whether services can be gradually scaled up or, conversely, whether conditions will require a return to delivering more services remotely.
Email us at at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Spring 2021 required and recommended textbooks for classes in the School of Nursing, School of Health Professions and the Department of Health Management and Informatics are now available at the library. Each course has its own corresponding tab.
Paper copies are available on Health Sciences Library Reserve for a 24 hour checkout time. Any duplicate copies of textbooks are available and subject to regular check out times.
Returned print books will be placed under a 72 hour quarantine before they can be checked out again. Expect delays if you wish to check out a print book.
Be aware of the user limits on electronic textbooks. They are different depending on textbook and platform. We make note of any user limits.
Unfortunately, we don’t have all the books required for every class. If we don’t have your textbook, there are several avenues you can use to find a copy, which are all clearly labeled on each class page.
If you need help accessing any of the textbooks, email email@example.com.
We recently completed an analysis of our ebook usage for the Health Sciences and Veterinary Medical Libraries.
Our ebook collection of 2000 ebooks was viewed over 100,000 times and of those 2000 ebooks, 30 of them were viewed over 1000 times each! You can browse our ebook collection here.
At the Health Sciences Library, we do our best to purchase the ebook copies of the books you need knowing that our users are not always on campus. Have a book you’d like to recommend? Let us know here.
Date: Thursday, January 28, 2021
Time: 4 – 5 pm

The monumental building known today as the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art opened in 1933 owing to a set of marvelously serendipitous circumstances.
Kristie C. Wolferman, author of The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art: A History, will tell us the story of the widowed, reclusive Mary Atkins who left funds to build an art museum, and of the newspaper publisher William Rockhill Nelson who bequeathed $11 million to purchase works of art. After several others close to Nelson provided funds for housing that collection, trustees of multiple estates were able to come together to erect a major museum where none had existed before.
Over the years, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art has grown in stature and holdings. It is now known not only for its outstanding American art, but for its Chinese and American Indian art collections and for photographs. Ms. Wolferman will virtually walk us through the museum’s history and introduce us to its dazzling 21st century renovations, including the new Bloch Building and the redesigned American Wing.
About the Author
Kristie C. Wolferman is author of The Osage in Missouri; The Indomitable Mary Easton Sibley: Pioneer of Women’s Education in Missouri; and The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art: Culture Comes to Kansas City, all three published by the University of Missouri Press. She lives in Kansas City, Missouri.
The Health Sciences Library recently gathered statistics to report to the Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries (AAHSL).
This association is comprised of the libraries serving the accredited U.S. and Canadian medical schools belonging to or affiliated with the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC).
As was the case in previous surveys, our collections budget lags behind our peer libraries by over a half a million dollars. Our aspirational peers* have about 4 times more money to spend on collections than we do.
This will make it even more challenging to meet our targets for the current campus wide collections cut of $1.2 million.
We are using a data driven approach to keep the journals you value the most. Send your journal feedback or specific questions about titles to firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Our aspirational peers are University of Florida and SUNY Story Brook
In the 1971 MUtation, the yearbook from the School of Medicine, one of our librarians noticed that Dr. Dan Longo was listed as winning an award during Health Sciences Research Day that year. You may recognize Dr. Dan Longo as one of the authors (along with Dr. Anthony Fauci!) of Harrison’s Internal Medicine. We were able to find this information about Dr. Longo all because the yearbook was digitized in MOSpace. Digitizing your work makes it easier for others to find your work.
