  • Scopus: Track UCSF Research Impact

    Want to track who’s citing your papers? Are you trying to understand the breadth of UCSF’s research output?

    Scopus is available from the UCSF Library on a trial basis through the end of 2010. Scopus allows researchers to see who has cited their work in the past, and to follow new citations going forward by setting up alerts through email or RSS. It allows research officers to develop a profile of UCSF research output, both for specific years and over time.

  • UCSF Teaching & Learning Center: Project Underway

    TLC_January2010.jpg

    The UCSF Teaching & Learning Center (TLC) is on track for construction to begin in February, now that the second floor of the Parnassus Campus Library has been completely emptied. The TLC will be an integrated facility consisting of a simulation and clinical skills education center, technology-enhanced active-learning classrooms, computing labs, and communications technology to support telehealth education. The Center is a signature project for education across all programs at UCSF.

    With the closure of the 2nd floor, visit the temporary Technology Commons on the 5th floor and the new Copy/Cashier service window on the 3rd floor.

    An exhibit about the TLC is now on display on the first floor of the Parnassus Campus Library. You can also visit the TLC website to learn more about the project, view photos and plans, and read project updates. Subscribe to an RSS feed for updates or follow @ucsf_tlc on Twitter.
