Did you know? Google Scholar tips

Google Scholar is one of the search tools available to you among the many great resource tools McGoogan Library has in your information resource toolbox.

Save your search to re-run later:
Just copy the URL at the top of Google Scholar search results page and save it for later use.

Search the ‘cited by’ articles, too:
By clicking on the “cited by” link under a citation, you can check to see what articles cited your article of interest, and then search that collection for your terms.

Create alerts to keep up with new research on your topic:
On the left side of the search results page, click on the “Create alert” link, and follow the instructions to have alerts sent to you via email.

Customize Google Scholar on every computer you use:
Visit this guide for instructions on setting up your Google Scholar to search the UNMC collection, as well as how to add a link to each citation that allows you to import it into your RefWorks account. You will need to customize your Google Scholar every 3 weeks or so – Google doesn’t permanently keep the customization. When you notice that the link to import to RefWorks is missing, that is your signal to go through the customization process again.

From the archives: How the state medical school will look

Med School look 1916

THE PULSE, University of Nebraska College of Medicine, Omaha, Nebraska, Vol. X, No. 6, February 23, 1916, p. 10-11.

Here is the medical school of the University of Nebraska, which the state has started to build at Forty-Second Street and Dewey Avenue. One building is now in use and a second is to be built shortly, the contract having been awarded. The others will be built as appropriations are made.

The building in the foreground to the right is the college now in use. Immediately behind this is the proposed nurses’ home. The long building in the center is the hospital, now under contract for construction, and in the foreground at the left, only a corner showing, is the proposed additional college building.

The hospital, to cost $130,000, is being built to fill two direct demands: to provide medical and surgical care for the indigent, worthy sick of the state, and second, to furnish teaching advantages for students in the college. Each county will be allowed to send its quota of charges to be given this free medical and surgical treatment.

The big hospital is to be three stories and basement and to consist of three wings. In the central wing on the ground floor will be the receiving department and hospital store rooms. The first floor is for the offices and for the hospital proper. Quarters for interns and the house physicians will be on the second floor. The roof above this will be tiled and have a high coping, providing a roof garden, where patients may be wheeled for open air treatment.

In the basement of the north wing will be the department of pathology and a demonstration class room. The first floor above will be the male medical ward of sixteen beds, with rest rooms, nurses’ work rooms, etc. The second floor above will be the same equipment and number of beds for male surgical patients, and the third floor will be for special male cases and various specialties and male children. The other wing will be the same, but for women patients.

The buildings are to be entirely of brick, stone and terra cotta. The campus will be given over to shrubbery and ornamental flower beds. The building is to be completed by January 1, 1917. John Latenser & Sons of Omaha are architects.

Fall semester hours start August 25

The library will be moving to its Fall semester hours beginning Monday, August 25. These hours are

Monday-Thursday, 7:30 a.m.-Midnight
Friday, 7:30 a.m.-9:00 p.m.
Saturday, 10:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m.
Sunday, 1:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m.

Noise in the library – It’s just temporary

Facilities is upgrading the temperature control systems throughout Wittson Hall to make the temperature in the building more uniform. Unfortunately, that means taking down some ceiling panels in the library and replacing the thermostats, and that means that there will be a bit of noise for a few weeks.

Work will start on 7th floor the week of August 25th. From there, Facilities will move to 8th floor, and finally to 6th. The 6th and 7th floor work will be most likely to affect students in the library.

The workers will try to keep the noise to a minimum. When you look for a place for quiet study, keep this schedule in mind, and keep an eye out for ladders and workers overhead. If you see them in your favorite study area, you might want to temporarily relocate.

We promise: the noise is just temporary!
