Workshops @ Your Library – Choosing a Citation Manager: Zotero, Mendeley and EndNote Basic

Date: Wednesday, September 29, 2021
Time: 11:00am – 12:00pm
Register for online workshop

Citation management software helps researchers organize PDFs and notes and generate citations and bibliographies in a variety of publishing styles. The three citation managers the library teaches–Zotero, EndNote Basic and Mendeley–all have different strengths and weaknesses. This webinar previews each citation manager and explains the key features and differences between them.

Overview of Recent University of Missouri Publications in Medicine and Related Fields: August 2021

Each month we provide an overview of University of Missouri School of Medicine faculty-authored articles in medicine and related fields as well as a featured article with the highest journal impact factor.

This month’s featured article, “Functional and epigenetic phenotypes of humans and mice with DNMT3A Overgrowth Syndrome” , was co-authored by Dr. Cheryl Hill of the Department of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences. The article was published in Nature Communications  (impact factor of 14.919 in 2020). This article is available via open access.

Note that Dr. James Stevermer of the Department of Family & Community Medicine had two more USPSTF guidelines published in JAMA:

New and Improved Group Study Rooms

You asked and we delivered!

We’ve updated some of the group study rooms in Ellis Library, in addition to a few upgrades in the study rooms at the Health Sciences Library.

Thanks to the Enhance Mizzou fee for the Libraries and DoIT, some of our group study rooms have new:

  • Chairs
  • Study Tables
  • Whiteboards
  • Carpet

A more recent addition are our new solstice monitors for easier group collaboration. All you have to do is connect to TigerWifi on a laptop or an apple device, and once set up, you can start screen sharing instantly.

home Budget, Gateway Carousel HSL, J. Otto Lottes Health Sciences Library How does the Health Sciences Library Compare with its Peers?

How does the Health Sciences Library Compare with its Peers?

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 asklibrary@health.missouri.

*Our aspirational peers are University of Florida and SUNY Story Brook

home Gateway Carousel HSL, J. Otto Lottes Health Sciences Library, Resources and Services Use MOspace to Measure the Worldwide Impact of Your Research

Use MOspace to Measure the Worldwide Impact of Your Research

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.
