Services spotlight: literature alerts

Are you conducting long-term research and would like to know when a new article has been written on your topic? The library’s literature alerts service can help. Alerts are searches which run automatically, usually on a weekly basis. The search results are emailed directly to the requestor and are available in Refworks format. Alerts may be set up for the following databases: PubMed, CINAHL, PsycINFO, Scopus, or Cochrane. For additional information or to request a literature alert, please contact Cindy Schmidt at 559-7077 or by email at cmschmidt@unmc.edu.

Resources for dealing with distress from violence

In order to offer support to the UNMC/NebraskaMedicine community’s wellness and resilience after Sunday morning’s attack in Orlando, McGoogan Library has added a guide listing resources to contact for information and support. The guide links to information useful for you when caring for yourself, your family, and your patients. Additional information can be requested through the Consumer Health Information Resource Service (CHIRS) at no charge. You can access the guide at: http://unmc.libguides.com/distress.
