Pet therapy event April 26

Pet Therapy 1920 x 1080

The McGoogan Library will be hosting a Pet Therapy event on Tuesday April 26th, 2016. This event will take place outside of the Sorrell Center at the Sorrell Commons Area from 11:30am-1:00pm. Take a break from studying and come see us. Coloring pages, along with coloring pencils, and popcorn will be provided.

The Pet Therapy event will be held in memory of Steve Bridges. Steve worked at the library for nearly 30 years and was well liked by students and staff at UNMC. He was a strong believer about going the extra mile to relieve stress for students when they needed it the most.

Reading by Dr. Lydia Kang February 24

Save the date for an author book reading by Dr. Lydia Kang on Wednesday, February 24 at 3:30pm in the library’s rare book room (8th floor).

Lydia Kang is a young adult author and physician who lives in Omaha with her husband and three children. She is endlessly fascinated by all things geek-related. Dr. Kang decided writing is as much fun as medicine and decided to do both. Her first two novels, Control and Catalyst are young adult sci-fi adventure/romances.  She is currently working on another young adult novel and a work of nonfiction.

A book signing and drawing for a copy of both Catalyst and Control will be held after the reading.

This is just a small token of our support for the great work you are doing towards your future health professional career.

One of the best ways to advance your career is through scholarly publishing — yet it may also be one of the hardest, especially if you don’t have a lot of time to write.

Join us on Thursday, Oct. 15, as the McGoogan Library presents an inside look at the publishing process from those who know it best — the publishers and editors who decide what gets (and doesn’t get) published.

Experts from leading publishing companies will be on hand to offer inside tips and tricks for how and where to get published, and ways to get your papers noticed. You’ll also learn about open access publishing and your rights as an author.

Register online or call 402-559-5929 to reserve your spot or watch the live-stream webcast.

If you have any questions, please contact Heather Brown, MA, Associate Professor and Head of Collection Services, McGoogan Library of Medicine.
