Cell image library launched

The Cell: An Image Library™ is a freely accessible, easy-to-search, public repository of reviewed and annotated images, videos, and animations of cells from a variety of organisms, showcasing cell architecture, intracellular functionalities, and both normal and abnormal processes. The purpose of this database is to advance research, education, and training, with the ultimate goal of improving human health.

Each image contains its own unique re-use conditions, based on Creative Commons licensing. The images can be re-used, but some conditions may apply.

Off-campus MICROMEDEX changes

Due to the changes in the MICROMEDEX interface and browser security setting instability, off-campus access to MICROMEDEX now requires a special username and password. That information is provided in the “off-campus login” link to the right of the MICROMEDEX link on library home page Quick Links. This login information changes on a quarterly basis and is the same as the mobile login.

New look coming to Quick Links

In response to feedback and a desire to more effectively organize the Quick Links on the library’s home page, a new look has been created. It will go live on October 31. The text is slightly smaller than the previous Quick Links list, but the text size can be increased through your browser or the page controls.

New image search in UpToDate

UpToDate now has the capability of searching for graphics. There are over 23,000 graphics, which include: pictures, tables, illustrations, diagrams, graphs, algorithms and movies.  An export to PowerPoint function is available and these images can be used in presentations as long as UpToDate attribution is provided. See this PDF flier for more information on this new functionality.

Graphics from other library resources may also be used in presentations. All must contain attributions, as well. These resources include the textbook packages MDConsult, AccessMedicine, and STAT!Ref.

UpToDate is a point-of-care resource available to the faculty, students, and staff of UNMC and The Nebraska Medical Center.
