ITM Library – Newsletter Autumn 2016
Now that a new academic year has started, we present you several new information sources:
Over 11 million records from the CABI databases, providing an important complement to e.g. PubMed searches for tropical medicine and parasitology literature. Please enjoy a temporary trial during this September month.
DynaMed Plus is an evidence-based clinical knowledge base, supported by the Cochrane Library, the American College of Physicians (ACP) and the American Medical Association (AMA). DynaMed Plus aims to provide fast answers to clinical questions from medical specialists. As such it can be situated in the same niche as e.g. UpToDate. Please enjoy a temporary trial during this Autumn.
PlumX Metrics displays – for a large amount of published papers – a selection of alternative metrics, such as abstract views, html views, clicks, linkouts, exports, readers, shares, likes, comments, blog mentions, news mentions, tweets, … Such metrics are rather less structured than traditional citation analysis, but can be useful to see what kinds of influences your papers generate. PlumX is now integrated within several source databases of our EDS Discovery Service.
May we also remind you of the availability of “BrowZine”, the comprehensive web-based table of contents alerting service for literally thousands of biomedical journals, both ITM subscribed-to and open access titles. ITM patrons can simply browse these titles on the fly, or create their own free account and effortlessly construct their personal bookshelf consisting of up to 64 journals to browse regularly for new content. BrowZine automatically keeps count of read and unread journal issues and links directly to the full-text PDF’s of clicked-on articles.. A practical guide is available at http://support.thirdiron.com/.
The new Acquisitions List January-June 2016 presents a survey of some 250 titles (print + online) added to our collection during the last 6 months.
We are looking forward to receiving your feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do enjoy lots of searching and reading,
Your Library Team
