Workshops @ Your Library – Software and Data Carpentry

Looking to add programming, scripting, automation, and data management skills to your research toolbox? Software Carpentry workshops return for Fall 2022! We have also added some Data Carpentry workshops this time, too! The format and Python or R content is similar, but instead of Unix Shell and Version Control lessons, Data Carpentry workshops have lessons on collecting and organizing data, cleaning messy data, and manipulating/retrieving data via SQL. Check each workshop’s registration page for information on the content of that workshop.

These 2-day hands-on workshops will focus on basic concepts and skills to help researchers perform their work in less time and with less pain with code (Python or R), version control, data management, and task automation. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems.

Pre-registration is required.

Health Sciences Library Construction Project

The Health Sciences Library is embarking on an exciting renovation projected to start Spring 2023. Over the next several months, we will work with architects to design a more functional and accessible modern library.

This library redesign will focus on library spaces for student work including improved access to technology, collaborative and individual study spaces, and innovative furniture concepts that are appropriate for today’s technology needs.

We are working to ensure that our new, modern library will meet the needs of our community as well as make sure your needs are met during any building closure.

Stay tuned for updates and submit your feedback on our Library Renovation page: https://libraryguides.missouri.edu/HSLLibraryRenovation

Updated: Changes to the Library Catalog on June 23

The University of Missouri Libraries are pleased to announce our new catalog interface, integrated with Discover @ MU, will go live on June 23, 2022. The new system will allow patrons to search books, journals, online resources and more in one platform. All items already checked out to patrons will migrate to the new system.

We will be transitioning to our new system from June 18-21, 2022. During this transition materials will be processed manually which may result in delays in updating your account and processing some requests and holds. We will make the necessary adjustments to dates to avoid fines or other fees.

Requests for materials not owned by MU Libraries may be made via the MOBIUS catalog or ILL@MU.

Nursing research : reading, using, and creating evidence / Janet Houser.

Nursing Research: Reading, Using, and Creating Evidence, Fifth Edition is a foundational text for students which teaches the basics for creating and using evidence in nursing practice. Today’s nurse needs to demonstrate proficiency in reading research, determining its use in their practice, and participating in the research process. The Fifth Edition is intuitively organized around the three main competencies – reading, using and creating evidence – all of which enable the reader to translate research into evidence in a practical way. This text is intended to teach and support the clinical practice of students, professional nurses returning to school, and practicing nurses that must apply evidence to patient care.

 

The handbook of sexuality in close relationships / edited by John H. Harvey, Amy Wenzel, Susan Sprecher.

Although sexuality is an integral part of close romantic relationships, research linking these two constructs has been less systematic than other areas pertaining to close relationships. To date, researchers in communication, sociology, family studies, psychology, and psychiatry, have made significant advances in both of these fields. The editors’ goal is to integrate this research into one volume. They bring together major scholars from the diversity of fields working on close relationship topics to examine past contributions and new directions in sexuality. The emphasis is on theoretical integration and stimulation, methodological rigor, and critical analysis.

 

Evidence based practice for health professionals : an interprofessional approach / Bernadette Howlett, Ellen J. Rogo, Teresa Gabiola Shelton

Evidence based practice (EBP) has become the standard in health care practice today. Evidence Based Practice for Health Professionals covers the fundamentals of applying medical evidence to clinical practice and discussing research findings with patients and fellow professionals. This essential text explains the basic concepts of EBP, its applications in health care, and how to interpret biostatistics and biomedical research. With examples derived from multiple health professions, Evidence Based Practice for Health Professionals teaches the skills needed to access and interpret research in order to successfully apply it to collaborative, patient-centered health care decisions. Students gain valuable practice with skill-building learning activities, such as explaining the evidence for treatments to patients, developing a standard of care, selecting a diagnostic tool, and designing community-based educational materials. Evidence Based Practice for Health Professionals also helps prepare students to communicate knowledgeably with members of interprofessional healthcare teams as well as withpharmaceutical sales representatives.

 

Medical marijuana : a clinical handbook / Samoon Ahmad, Kevin P. Hill.

Medical Marijuana: A Clinical Handbook summarizes what is currently known about the positive and negative health impacts of cannabis, detailed pharmacological profiles of both THC and CBD, considerations for each medical specialty, treatment approaches used by practicing clinicians, and insights into the history of cannabis and the current regulatory environment in the United States. This concise, easy-to-navigate guide is an invaluable resource for physicians and residents, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and other clinicians who seek reliable clinical guidelines in this growing area of health care

Increase your Research Impact through LinkedIn

LinkedIn is a great free tool, that you might already use. Since LinkedIn targets professionals, it is an ideal tool to interact with fellow researchers. 

 

Step 1: Create your profile

Write a strong headline that showcases your expert areas.

Add a picture.

Write a compelling summary of the work you’ve done, and why it matters. Here is an example from Monica F. Cox.

Finally, make yourself more “googleable” by ensuring your profile is public. 

Step 2: Connect with other academics

Add your email address and LinkedIn will suggest connections based on people you already know.

You can message and communicate with connections to build meaningful relationships. 

Step 3: Highlight your work

Add work that you’re particularly proud of to LinkedIn (Profile > Add Profile Section > Accomplishments).

Share new funding, publications, or thoughts on new research. 

Likely, the research audience you want to target already utilizes LinkedIn. So using LinkedIn to increase the impact and visibility of your research is quick and effective.
