Workshops @ Your Library: Copyright and Fair Use in the Classroom

Date: Wednesday, September 15, 2021
Time: 3:00pm – 4:00pm
Register for online workshop.

Copyright raises many questions: What can I use freely? When do I need to get permission? How do I protect my intellectual property? This workshop will provide an overview of U.S. copyright law in the academic setting and point the way to resources that help in making decisions and knowing when to seek legal advice.

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

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.

MOBIUS and ILL Borrowing Resumes August 3rd

We are pleased to share that MOBIUS and traditional Interlibrary Loan (ILL) borrowing resumes as of August 3rd.  The service may be slower than in past years as most libraries are allowing time to quarantine books and some libraries remain closed or are open with limited staffing.

With the resumption of interlibrary borrowing and lending, we must sadly say goodbye to our HathiTrust Digital Library’s Emergency Temporary Access Service (ETAS).  Please contact your subject librarian if you need assistance with identifying online access options for materials.

Thank You Dr. Robert Logan

Dr. Robert Logan, PhD. gifted a digital copy of Deep Learning Techniques for Biomedical and Health Informatics in memory of Dr. Donald Lindberg.

Dr.  Lindberg was a pioneer in using computer technology to improve health care. Beginning his career in 1960 at the University of Missouri as a professor of information science and pathology, he was named Director of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) in 1984 and served until 2015.

The University Libraries Honor with Books program lets patrons honor someone special with a book purchase.

Summer 2020 Online Textbooks at the Health Sciences Library

Summer 2020 required and recommended online textbooks for classes in the School of NursingSchool of Health Professions and the Department of Health Management and Informatics are now available. Each course has its own corresponding tab.

We made the decision to only link to online textbooks since our physical library is closed and our print books cannot be checked out at this time.

Unfortunately, we don’t have all the books required for every class. If we don’t have your textbook, you can recommend the library purchase a copy.
