Library News Bites

Happy 2015!!! 

Reserve Books

If you have an extra copy of the textbook(s) that you are using this semester, I would encourage you to put it/them "on reserve" for students.  The form to do so can be found at

Library Instruction Sessions

Please call me (x6093) if you would like to schedule a library instruction session for your students.  These sessions can be tailored for the paper or project that your students are working on.   

Book/DVD Orders

Ordering stops in March.  If there is an item that you would like to see made available in the library's collection, please send me the title and ISBN number.

New Databases

We have two new databases, The Cochrane Library and Cochrane Clinical Answers.  The Cochrane Library is a collection of six databases in medicine and other healthcare areas that summarize and interpret results of medical research.  Clinical Answers are evidence-based answers to clinical questions that support health professionals in decision making. The databases can be found by using the Article Databases link found on the library's home page and searching by Title.

Websites of Interest

Wolfram Alpha: Computational Knowledge Engine

Previously covered by the Scout Report in 2009, Wolfram Alpha, “the computational knowledge engine” is more astonishing than ever. The interface is deceptively simple. Just type what you want to know into the text field. For instance, “How many Buddhists are there?” returns not only the number of Buddhists worldwide (369 million); it also breaks the numbers down by country and provides a colorful world map. Another example: “health care Germany vs U.S.” returns a range of facts, figures, and graphs, including the amount each nation spends per person on health ($3,577 vs. $7,274). These are just the shallowest examples of what Wolfram Alpha can do, so its worth exploring with your specific needs in mind. [CNH]

The Encyclopedia of Earth: Biodiversity

The Encyclopedia of Earth, a project by the National Council for Science  and the Environment, was launched in 2006 as a “free, fully searchable  online resource on the Earth, its natural environments, and their  interaction with society.” Over 1,400 scholars from around the world have  contributed to the site to make it one of the most reliable sources for  environmental and policy information on the web. This link to the  Biodiversity section of the Encyclopedia opens a small universe of insights  into the diversity of life on our planet. Featured Articles are forefront  on the site, with topics such as Coral Reefs, Crustacea, or Habitat  Fragmentation. Each category opens to dozens of loosely related articles.  The Recently Updated section is another great place to start for those  daunted by the variety of conceivable subjects related to biodiversity.  [CNH]
