New Journal for UST Bone and Mineral Researchers!

I’m pleased to report that the UST libraries subscription of the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research is now live!

JBMR Logo with Reg Mark81346_web

Published monthly by the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research,  JBMR® contains “original manuscripts, reviews, and special articles in basic and clinical science relevant to bone, muscle and mineral metabolism. Manuscripts are published on the biology and physiology of bone and muscle, relevant systems biology topics (e.g. osteoimmunology), and the pathophysiology and treatment of osteoporosis, sarcopenia and other disorders of bone and mineral metabolism.*”

Even more importantly – it comes highly recommended by our UST faculty!

In other words, we hope it will be a great new resource for the many anatomy researchers here at UST, as our health and wellness programs continue to thrive.

UST’s subscription goes back to 1997, and you can look for issues in our A-Z list of databases, linked to in subject-related research guides (like the Health and Human Performance department’s guide), or ask any UST Librarian for assistance.

Happy researching!

A Tale About Award Winners

On Monday, February 2, youth services librarians and children’s literature enthusiasts will be anxious to hear the announcements of the major award winners for 2014.  Among the awards to be announced will be the Newbery and Caldecott Medals, Coretta Scott King awards, Michael L. Printz award, and a number of others.  Authors and illustrators will be congratulated; and writers, reviewers, and bloggers will be predicting that the winners will “NEVER go out of print”.

Well, here’s the other side of the story.  On January 28, Keffer Library added the last Newbery Medal winner that was missing from our collection.  Daniel Boone, the 1940 winner has been out of print for many years.  UST library staff have been watching for a used copy to become available, and finally one did! So let’s hear a cheer for the good news, and give a thanks to library acquisition staff for their work to find and acquire this rare book.

Welcome Back!

Happy first day of Spring Semester (and congrats on surviving the frigid January of 2014)!

We’re excited to see everyone back on campus and hope everyone’s courses are off to a good start. Despite the cold, things were busy around here at the library this January and, as usual, we have some fun news to share.

As you gear up for spring research projects, remember to check out our handy Subject Guides – what I like to call handy “mini library websites” geared specifically towards your course and subject content (and I’m not making that up – we  work with your professors to make sure we have what you need to do your assignments!).

Other than Coffee Bene’s reopening this morning, we’re happy to report that the Media Resources Collection moved into its new home next to the reference collection over J-term.  Stop by to check out our wonderful collection of films and media – perhaps to find that perfect clip to add to a presentation?

We’ve also added many more online resources, including these favorites of mine:

  • ASM Handbooks OnlineA little something for our engineers: ASM Handbooks Online is the industry’s best known and most comprehensive source of information on ferrous and non-ferrous metals and materials technology
  • Blackwell Reference Online: more than 50 online subject encyclopedia and handbook titles from 2013 have been added, increasing the collection to more than 570 titles. 
  • National Geographic Online: the full text content of the magazine and all of its spectacular photography; see Kate Burke’s blog post for more info. 
  • PrivCo: an excellent source for finding information on privately-held companies. PrivCo is the premier source for business and financial data on major, non-publicly traded corporations, including family owned, private equity owned, venture-backed, and international unlisted companies.

As I like to joke, you can stick a quarter in me and I’d go on and on about all of the wonderful resources we have here at the UST Libraries.  Maybe you can make it one of your 2014 New Years’ resolutions to finally stop by and check it all out?   If so, we’d love to see you! Make an appointment with your favorite librarian today find out more about what we have in your subject area.
