2011 journal subscription changes

The McGoogan Library of Medicine would like to announce the changes to its journal and resource subscriptions for 2011, which can be viewed on our website. Newly subscribed titles will be added to the Online Journal Finder and Helix Catalog as they are made available to us by the publisher.

We welcome any questions or comments regarding our collection decisions. Please contact Nancy Woelfl, Ph.D. (nwoelfl@unmc.edu) with a copy to Paula Turpen, Ph.D., Director of Research Resources (pbturpen@unmc.edu) with any input or concerns that you may have about these changes.

Helix Library Catalog now mobile

The Helix Library Catalog is now formatted for searching on a mobile device. You can now find out, on the run, if the library owns or has access to a particular print or electronic book or journal from the library’s mobile website http://www.unmc.edu/library/m.

The mobile version of the catalog can only be searched with keywords; hence, when searching for one world titles such as the journals Nature or Cell, all records containing those terms will appear in the results. Getting to the exact title may be cumbersome, as limiters are currently not available.  If you have questions regarding library holdings, please call the Circulation Desk at 402-559-4006.
