  • UCSF Library Marks First Annual Open Access Week


    Building on the success of past Open Access Days, 2009 features the first ever Open Access Week from October 19-23, to highlight the benefits of removing barriers to scholarly research.

    October 19, 2009 also marks the fifth birthday for Public Library of Science (PloS) Medicine, one of the world’s premiere open access journals. Open access journals are peer reviewed, and available online at no cost to anyone. Open access offers one alternative to traditional subscription-based journals, which become harder for libraries to afford with every passing year. This is especially true during this year's UC budget crisis.

    At UCSF we'll have information tables over lunch hour in Saunders Court on October 20, and at Genentech Hall on October 22. So stop by, grab a cookie, take a flyer, and talk about how to change scholarly publishing.

  • Ingenuity Pathways Analysis: Funding Partners Needed


    The Library has extended the trial period for access to Ingenuity Pathways Analysis (IPA) until June 2010.

    IPA is a software application that allows researchers to compare pathways for common or unique biological molecules and to identify potential biomarkers. Users have been enthusiastic about how IPA can help facilitate their research.

  • New Teaching & Learning Center Back on Track


    The construction project to create a new Teaching and Learning Center on the 2nd floor of the Parnassus Library building is back in full swing after a nine-month delay due to the California state budget deficits.

    The new Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) will expand UCSF’s educational facilities and provide a state-of-the-art clinical skills, simulation, and telemedicine training center. Technology-enhanced classrooms will be part of the facility, and it will also contain updated student computing space to replace the Library’s existing lab. The TLC has been planned by a cross-campus team, including representatives from each of the schools and the campus leadership.
