Library Resources Now Accessible in Maestro Care!
Posted On: Friday, April 7, 2017 - 17:34 by Beverly Murphy

Do you access UpToDate through Maestro Care?

Users accessing UpToDate through the Maestro Care toolbar or through a patient's chart (problem list, MAR, orders, etc.) will have immediate access to other evidence-based resources, including ACP Journal Club, the Cochrane Library, ClinicalKey, ClinicalKey for Nursing, Lexicomp, MedlinePlus (for patients), and PubMed.

When you click on the UpToDate button, searches should still work the same way and users’ Maestro Care IDs will still be sent to UpToDate for automatic log-in to receive CME credit for searches.  

You now also have access to other resources through the Medical Center Library & Archives. Though the search of additional Library resources is live, we are continuing to refine the search...

Making Information Free: Open Access & More
Posted On: Friday, October 7, 2016 - 13:56 by Patricia Thibodeau

Easy and immediate access to journal articles still remains a challenge. Even Duke cannot provide access to everything.  Journal prices have continued to increase year after year with more and more expensive journals being published. That means important clinical, research, and educational content can be locked up for months, years, or permanently, inaccessible to the patients, health providers, researchers, teachers and learners that need access to them.  This problem becomes even more massive when you look at access to information within developing countries, and can become an obstacle as Duke tries to work with global sites to reduce disparities in health, education, and research.

The following three movements are trying to ensure...

Copyright - Be in the Know!
Posted On: Wednesday, August 31, 2016 - 13:31 by Erica Brody

Why should you care about copyright?

As a future author, you may want to protect your work so that you're recognized for materials you have created and do not lose control of them. For some things you may not care, but as your career grows you will want recognition for the book, video, or journal article that you've created. Think about how you would feel if someone or some corporation took your work, mass distributed it, and you got no credit, or in some cases, no royalties for what you wrote or produced?

Check out the Library's guides Copyright for Students and Copyright to learn everything...
