The McGoogan Library of Medicine is acquiring print editions of the most heavily used and requested titles to replace the recently cancelled subscription to ClinicalKey. As they arrive, these new Reference books are shelved on the 6th floor near the AskUs desk.
Discover these titles through an alphabetical listing or browse by category in the research guide, Print Titles Formerly Accessible through Clinical Key. This guide indicates which books are already here and which books are still on order.
For more information about accessing the new books, or even older editions available for checkout, please stop by the Library or contact the AskUs desk at (402) 559-4006.
Education & Research Services Associate
Education & Research Services
Tell us about your job in the library.
I’m part of the Education & Research Services (ER&S) department. I help those with reference questions and questions on library policy, I work on the library’s Research guide’s, and occasionally conduct literature searches for staff and students at UNMC and Nebraska Medicine.
When would you most likely meet or talk with me?
You can find me at the AskUs desk Monday through Friday. I occasionally assist the Education & Research Services Librarians when they teach a class, so you might see me there. Otherwise, I can be found at my desk in the E&RS office.
What do you like about working in the library?
I love being able to help and work with others, and the McGoogan Library gives me the opportunity to work with a variety of people. Working at the library gives me the opportunity to grow, professionally and personally, and allows me to strengthen my skills and develop new skills for the future.
What do you like to do outside of work?
I’m starting classes for my Masters of Library & Information Science this month, so a lot of my time will be spent on assignments and projects. I’m an avid reader, so more than likely I can be found with a book. I also enjoy spending whatever free time I have with friends and family.
When submitting a manuscript to a journal or conference or a grant to NIH, you may have noticed a field for an ORCID ID. What is ORCID? “ORCID is an open, non-profit, community-driven effort to create and maintain a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers.” Essentially, you can register to get your own unique ID and tie all of your work together,
It was just announced that eight publishers will start to require an ORCID with new submissions. So, how do you get an ORCID?
To get started:
1. Claim your free ORCID iD at http://orcid.org/register
2. Import your research outputs from Scopus and add biographical information using automated import wizards
3. Use your ORCID when you apply for grants, submit publications, or share your CV. Learn more at http://orcid.org
If you have questions about ORCID or need assistance connecting your ORCID iD with your Scopus author profiles, contact Heather Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The library is pleased to announce, on behalf of Academic Services, The Writing Center @ UNMC, a UNMC/UNO partnership. Hours are 3 pm – 8 pm Wednesdays and Thursdays in McGoogan Library 6th Floor South. An opening reception will be held January 13 from 2 – 3 pm.

Need help finding a home for your manuscript?
Give Jane (Journal/Author Name Estimator) a try. You can simply paste your article’s title or abstract into the search box and then click the “Find journal” button. A list of journals publishing similar work will appear along with an “Article Influence” metric. Open access journals and journals with automatic-PubMed-Central-submission policies are tagged. A “Show articles” button appears next to each journal entry that allows you to review the similar work published in that journal.
If you’d prefer a more personal touch, you’re always welcome to ask the AskUs librarians for help (402-550-6221 or email@example.com). We’re happy to search for similar publications and provide a list of journals with impact factors.
