The Duke University Medical Center Archives (DUMCA) actively collects the official records of the DUMC and DUHS departments and divisions, including a variety of materials that provide evidence of business, interests, and activities through the years.

Posted On: Wednesday, November 25, 2020 - 13:21 by Steph Hendren

Sciwheel (formerly F1000), a Web-based tool, allows you to create and organize a library of citations, discover new literature, and conduct group citing and editing of manuscripts via Google Docs. The browser plugin makes it easy to gather references from around the Web.
