Browzine Access Ended August 31st
Posted On: Wednesday, August 22, 2018 - 11:21 by Brandi Tuttle
Access to the handy resource, BrowZine (think "browsing"), will be ending this month. Browzine allowed you to stay current with the literature by aggregating and organizing information in one place, enabling you to browse, read, and monitor current journals in your subject areas. While access to that resource will disappear, we are here to help you make the transition (or start new habits)!
Docphin and Read by QxMD are two apps we suggest. Both provide easy access to Duke University’s journal subscriptions, make it easy to share, and allow you to create a customized news feed so you don’t waste any time staying current.
Alternatively, we recently secured...MORE
National Guideline Clearinghouse Shutting Down July 2018
Posted On: Tuesday, June 19, 2018 - 10:30 by Brandi Tuttle
Due to a loss of federal funding for this AHRQ resource, the National Guideline Clearinghouse (NGC) Website will be permanently unavailable beginning July 16, 2018. As this repository of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines has been a valuable resource for Duke health professionals, we want to make sure you can still access the information you need to provide quality patient care.
Our Guidelines section on the Clinical Tools page links to general practice and specialty guidelines. Many other databases also provide access to guidelines including PubMed, CINAHL, DynaMed Plus...MORE

We are Getting New Carpet!
Posted On: Tuesday, January 23, 2018 - 12:05 by Megan von Isenburg
The Library is replacing the carpet in most areas on Level 1 and Level 2R. Work will begin January 24th and take about a month. We are sorry for the mess and any disruption that this causes you!
Here are our tentative plans:
January 24 – February 9: New carpet on Level 2R
This is the hub of the Library and we recognize that the services on this floor are all very important. Our Service Desk will remain the primary point of contact for most of these two weeks. Check in with staff at the Desk for help navigating the Library during the carpet installation.

New Touchscreen Kiosks Are Here!
Posted On: Friday, December 22, 2017 - 11:05 by Beverly Murphy
While we are always happy to help you at the Library Service Desk, we recognize that sometimes you need information in a rush, after hours, or maybe on another floor of the Library, far from our desk. Our new kiosks will help you connect with library services at our Entrance Level, Level 1, and Level 3.
What’s on the kiosks?
- Exhibits – Learn more about our special collections, historical medical instruments, and some of our artwork
- Book a Room – See what study rooms are free and book a room directly from the kiosk
- Maps – Our building can be confusing but hopefully our maps...
Office Hours to Assist with Human Subject Research Proposals
Posted On: Wednesday, December 20, 2017 - 14:44 by Beverly Murphy
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has broadened its definition of clinical trial and is instituting the use of a new forms packet for collecting information about human subjects research at the time of proposal submission. These changes are substantial and will impact applications (new, resubmission, or revision) and awards with submission dates after January 25, 2018.
In an effort to answer questions related to these changes, several offices at Duke are coming together to offer office hours at the Medical Center Library & Archives (see schedule below). These are open to any faculty and staff with questions about proposal preparation or submission. General questions about these changes or office hours can be directed to ...MORE

Remote Access to E-journals Page
Posted On: Monday, August 28, 2017 - 00:04 by Beverly Murphy
This year we transitioned to a new e-journals platform which resulted in a few access issues for our e-journals page, but they have now been resolved.
There is however a change in the process for authentication purposes. If you access our e-journals page from off-site, you now have to log-in with your DukeNet ID and password. On-site access is not affected.
If you experience any problems with accessing our e-journals page from off-site, please contact us at email@example.com or 919.660.1100.
