Posted On: Wednesday, March 10, 2021 - 19:27 by Beverly Murphy

Duke Medical Center Library & Archives is debuting a newly redesigned and updated online exhibit of Women in Duke Health just in time for Women's History Month.

Highlighting women in multiple fields at Duke, many of which were pioneers or firsts in their disciplines, this exhibit looks at their stories and the context in which those stories took place. The primary method of inquiry for context in this exhibit was via oral histories, a unique format that allows for both.

This historical perspective is presented through individual profiles and interviews, a general timeline of events, and background interviews conducted with people who have a longtime view of Duke Medicine. For most...

NCBI Account Changes
Posted On: Thursday, March 4, 2021 - 12:44 by Sarah Cantrell

Do you login to NCBI to use MyNCBI, SciENcv, or MyBibliography? Do you submit data to NCBI? If so, you’ll want to read further to learn about some important changes to NCBI accounts that occured in June 2021.

What’s happening?
In brief, NCBI transitioned to federated account credentials. NCBI-managed credentials are the username and password you set at NCBI — those have gone away. Federated account credentials are those set through eRA Commons, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, or a university or institutional point of access (located under "more login options"). The content in your accounts is not going away.

Why is this happening?
NIH, NLM, and NCBI take your privacy and security very seriously. As part of their normal reviews, they have...

EndNote 20 is Here
Posted On: Wednesday, February 17, 2021 - 14:27 by Sarah Cantrell

EndNote 20, a citation management tool, is now available to download from Duke OIT. The primary goal of the update was to create a new interface design that would be more intuitive for users to operate. The result is a more modern, less cluttered program.

In addition to the interface update, EndNote 20 has made the deduplication of references easier by allowing users to search by DOI and PMCID (note: not PMID) during the deduplication process. Further, there are changes to how one views and annotates PDFs.  

Upgrading from EndNote X9 to EndNote 20

If you’re in the middle of a paper or project, we advise waiting to upgrade until the project is completed....
