The Library adds new eBooks to it's collection regularly. Your Liaison Librarian reviews the new eBooks, and sends updates about titles of interest periodically. Here are some new eBooks added in the last few months.
The Arizona branch is moving away from a paper check out system, to a digital one. You will now get automatic emails when items are due back. Simply email us to renew any materials.
If you currently have any library material in your office you are no longer using, we ask that you return it to the front desk. If you have items but wish to continue using them, let us know and we will check it out in our new system.
You might have already noticed, but the PubMed interface has been updated. It is expected that the new interface will become the default in the spring of 2020.
The new PubMed offers a clean, easy-to-use site, and was designed from the ground up to be mobile-friendly. The new PubMed interface was built using modern web standards, with a responsive layout, making it easier for new users on any type of device to find what they’re looking for.
Besides an interface update, behind the scenes updates also occurred with the way information is retrieved. The improved Best Match sort order uses a machine learning algorithm to help elevate the most relevant articles to the top of your results list. Improved citation and title sensors are built into the search box, making it even easier to find an article based on known citation information.
While it may look different, the new PubMed includes the features you rely on, and gives you access to the same bibliographic data. The new PubMed includes the key features that have long been a part of PubMed, including:
LibKey Nomad is a Google Chrome browser plugin which indicates the availability of the full text of an article in PubMed, publisher websites, and Wikipedia. It easily installs in seconds, and is pre-configured for A.T. Still University users. This extension places the appropriate button in the search results for direct access to the article, or directs you to our ILL form to quickly request the article.
How to install:
1. In a Chrome browser, search for “LibKey Nomad browser extension” and select the first link, or use this direct link.
2. Click the blue “Add to Chrome button” and click “Add Extension” on the pop-up window.
3. When the LibKey Nomad extension starts up, select “A.T. Still University” from the drop down list under “Select Institution.”
4. That’s it! Go search PubMed and enjoy that extra short cut.
AccessMedicine is a large online platform of eBooks, videos, multi-media, and study tools. You can now search for AccessMedicine videos in Still OneSearch. Simply enter your topic into the search box and limit by Type of Resource to Videos.
Besides the AccessMedicine platform, we also offer topic specific platforms.
On each Access platform, there is a new tool called Hypothesis. It requires a separate account from your MyAccess account. The tool allows you to annotate eBooks by highlighting text and making notes. Hypothesis enables students to continue "writing in the margins" with online readings.
There is also a built in eReader on all eBooks. After navigating to a particular chapter, you can click on Listen to have the text read to you.
