Skull on top of the tree     Fri, 2014-12-05

I feel religiously and personally offended by the skull on top of the Christmas tree at the entrance of the library. I would appreciate if this skull is taken down immediately.

I’m sorry that you were offended, that was definitely not the intent.  We have removed the skull.  The library puts up a tree ever year to collect donations of hats, mittens, scarves that will be donated in early January.  If you would like more information, please let me know.

Portable Therapy Tables     Thu, 2014-12-04

It would be nice to have portable therapy tables for checkout.  As lab space is occupied during testing hours and this would allow us to run through our manual therapy techniques even when other classes are using lab space.

 

It would be nice to have portable therapy tables for check out at the front desk to practice psychomotor skills.

 

 

Thank you for contacting the library regarding portable therapy tables!  We really appreciate your suggestion, and will work with you to investigate various options for portable tables in the market.

Thanks,

Treadmill Desks!     Tue, 2014-12-02

Need more treadmill desks!  They're occupied all the time!

"Thank you for the comment. The Library has advertised the treadmill desks, a.k.a. walk stations, heavily since we got them. We too have noted their popularity and consistent usage throughout the day. The distance walked and many calories burned since installation are fun facts and impressive. Students use them and seem to like them. Our leadership team will count your vote for more and consider in our future space and library amenities planning.

Thank you so much.

Tower Room Lights     Mon, 2014-11-17

Just wanted to let someone know that I was up in the tower room on 3rd floor last night and the lights turned off around 10 pm and would not turn back on. Thanks!

 

We are aware of the issue of the lighting in the Tower Room and that we are currently looking into the problem, and hope to have it resolved soon.

Thanks,

Journal of Neurosurgery     Mon, 2014-11-10

I am one of the 6th year neurosurgery residents here and am doing my research year. I have noticed that there is no access to the 2014 Journal of Neurosurgery articles.  I spoke with one of the librarians about this issue and was informed that there is an embargo on the current year articles of this journal.  This is a huge problem for us because this is our most prestigious and most read neurosurgery journal. We need access to this journal for research and learning purposes. Can this be fixed
please.

Thank you for your help in this matter.

 

Thank you for contacting us regarding the Journal of Neurosurgery.  The library canceled the subscription to this journal back in 2012 due to low usage.  We will review this journal again for a possible subscription.  Meanwhile, if you need articles from recent issues, please consider our interlibrary loan service at: http://hslibrary.ucdenver.edu/interlibrary.

To recommend more items to add to the library collection, please feel free to fill out the Suggest an Item online form at: http://hslibrary.ucdenver.edu/collections/suggest.  Thanks!

Journal of the American Association of Endodontists     Sat, 2014-11-01

Hello, I'm ISP 1 at UC Denver SDM. I'm interested in endodontics. I just found out that the library does not have subscription to Journal of Endodontics, which is the official journal of the American Association of Endodontists. I think that it would be very useful for the students if the library subscribed to JOE, so they could have access to that journal. Thank you.

 

Hello Library Staff,

Would you consider adding electronic access to the Journal of Endodontics?  Our students at the School of Dental Medicine would like to use this Journal for research and the development of CATS. Thanks.

 

Thank you for contacting the library with your recommendation for the Journal of Endodontics. I'm happy to report that we do have access to this title through ScienceDirect:

https://hsl-ezproxy.ucdenver.edu/login?url=http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/00992399

Please let me know if you have any questions.

You can find this title in our journals list on the library's website if you type in the name.

Sincerely,
Heidi Zuniga

 

 

   
Thank you.
Printing directions     Thu, 2014-10-16

When I print the Directions page from the site, the social media icons print down the middle of the page overlapping the parking map.

 

Thank you so much for reporting this issue.  Our web developer, Cathalina Fontenelle has worked on the problem and we believe it is now fixed!

New Publication     Mon, 2014-10-06

 I would suggest the HSL and University of Colorado to consider becoming members of the BioMedCentral to facilitate publications of our researchers in an open access fashion. Thanks for considering.

 

Thank you for contacting us regarding BioMedCentral membership.  The Health Sciences Library used to be an institutional member, but we ended our membership in 2012.  The CU System Libraries had a membership together and we all ended it because the benefits of the membership were not worth the costs.

The Health Sciences Library is now accepting applications for its Open Access Fund.  You can read more about it here:

Anals of Internal Medicine     Tue, 2014-09-02

The single user restriction for the Annals of Internal medicine is excessively restrictive and significantly compromises clinical decision making and research. This is a high impact journal and the library needs to increase the number of simultaneous users. If necessary this should be at the expense of a subscription to the numerous low impact low utilization journals included in current subscriptions.

Thanks

Thank you for contacting us regarding our subscription to the Annals of Internal Medicine.  We understand that this journal is important to our user communities, and will work with the publisher to expand our license so that more people can access the journal at the same time.

Thanks!

Prospector Broken Link     Thu, 2014-08-21

I searched on the Find It search bar for a book called "Extreme Cuisine" by Jerry Hopkins. When I click on the link "Prospector Union Catalog" to request it, the link sent me to the prospector page for "Oral Literature of the Kalenjin." I think that the prospector link is broken.

Thank you very much for reporting the incorrect Find It link to Prospector catalog records.  If you need instruction or help with obtaining that book, please contact us at 303-724-2152 or stop by our service desk during hours and staff will help you order this book.

We reported the incorrect Prospector link problem to ProQuest, the company who hosts Find It.  We are continually working to improve Find It as a discovery tool, and please feel free to report any other problems or send us suggestions regarding this tool.  For future library questions, you can contact the service desk or submitting your question to AskUs, our virtual reference service.  AskUs can be reached either via online form at http://hslibrary.ucdenver.libanswers.com/index.php, or email to AskUs@hsl.ucdenver.libanswers.com.

Thanks!
