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.
PsychiatryOnline is a comprehensive resource containing multiple sources of information on mental health, including books and journals.
Its flagship resource is the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), which is easily searched or browsed. Accompanying DSM texts, the Handbook of Differential Diagnosis and Clinical Cases, are also available.
In addition to the DSM library are textbooks such as The American Psychiatric Publishing Textbook of Psychiatry and Textbook of Psychopharmacology, Clinical Manual of Geriatric Psychiatry, Dulcan’s Textbook of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Integrated Care: Working at the Interface of Primary Care and Behavioral Health, and Textbook of Traumatic Brain Injury. Important journals, such as the American Journal of Psychiatry and Psychiatric Services are also available.
One does not need to know which resource to start with when using PsychiatryOnline. An quick search allows you to find the right information, whether in the DSM, a book, or journal.
PsychiatryOnline is linked in the Clinical Resources on the library’s homepage and is available to all UNMC faculty, staff, and students.
Due to a connectivity problem between Google Scholar and the library’s product used for journal access, links to the library’s full-text collection will be unavailable within Google Scholar until Thursday, November 27. Though the connectivity issue has been fixed, scheduled Google updates will not occur until that time.
