Catalog and checkouts affected

On October 29, IT asked us to shut down the server that hosts the library’s catalog of books and electronic resources. From October 30 until further notice, you will not be able to check out any books or anatomical models. You will not be able to look in the library catalog to see if we own a print book, journal, or anatomical models. We will reach out to anyone who already has materials checked out to confirm when materials are due. We apologize for the short notice and inconvenience. Please contact Emily McElroy, Dean of McGoogan Health Sciences Library, with any questions or concerns at emily.mcelroy@unmc.edu.

Resource cancellations announced

Due to budget cuts, the McGoogan Library of Medicine has identified the resources below for cancellation. For the majority of the resources, access will be retained to content published during the subscribing years. New content can be requested through Interlibrary Loan.

Cancellations will go into effect January 2018.

If you would like to provide feedback on these planned reductions to the library’s collections, please send your comments to Alison Bobal at abobal@unmc.edu by October 31, 2017.

Unpaywall: a browser extension to help you find free full-text

Have you ever found an interesting article online and were faced with a paywall? Now you can quickly find out if there is a version of the article, freely available. The Unpaywall browser extension, compatible with Chrome and Firefox, makes finding these versions quick and easy. It helps you identify open access articles, whether they are the final version of record or a pre or post print. Either way, you get the content for free. Read more about it in the Unpaywall FAQ.

As always, UNMC faculty, students, and staff can search the library’s online journals to access thousands of journals.
