Finals are swiftly coming up, and that means you’ve spent a lot of time studying this past semester. If you’re a regular of the McGoogan Library of Medicine, this also means you’ve probably spent a lot of time inside the Library.
In order to gauge just how much time you’ve spent in the Library this year, here’s a little quiz. Match the photo to the location.
Nature has made research articles in all of its journals free to read without a subscription. Articles, however, cannot be downloaded or printed without a subscription or purchase. Nature also permits subscribers of its journals to create links to accessible full-text for sharing purposes. Additionally, Nature will allow journalists to post links to full-text articles. This change is considered a move toward increased open access. For more information, please read an article in the Chronicle of Higher Education and from Nature.
Beginning January 1, 2015, the library will no longer charge the $9 interlibrary loan fee to UNMC faculty and staff, Nebraska Medicine, and Children’s Hospital Omaha. Additionally, students will not be limited to 50 free requests per year. This change is being made to make information more accessible to the UNMC and Nebraska Medicine community.
Please note that copyright payments will still be required if the individual exceeds five articles from the same title dated within the last five years or if more than one article from a single issue is requested. The charge will cover costs only and will be capped at $30. Copyright counts reset with each fiscal year.
For the Thanksgiving holiday, the library will observe the following hours and closures:
Wednesday November 26, 7:30a – 5:00p
Thursday November 27 CLOSED
Friday November 28 CLOSED
The library will re-open on Saturday with its regularly scheduled hours.
The library’s subscription to the Chronicle of Higher Education has been modified to no longer require a special username and password. This new institutional subscription allows seamless access on-campus and the customary UNMC authentication from off-campus. Links to the Chronicle can be located on the library’s home page through the catalog or online journals database.
