We have refreshed the UCSF Library Catalog. In addition to better design and layout, you will notice new features like:
You are cordially invited to visit UCSF's new Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) during our week-long grand opening, January 18 - 21, 2011. Located on the 2nd floor of the Campus Library, the Center will host four days of tours, demonstrations, and workshops to launch the interprofessional teaching and learning facilities.
During the Center's opening week, we invite you to stop by to see innovative teaching and learning in action and to find out how you can use these facilities to teach, to learn, or simply to be inspired!
Join the UCSF Library as we participate in the third annual Open Access Week from October 18-24. Learn about the benefits of open access publishing, which provides peer-reviewed journal articles free of charge on the web, making them easier to cite and to utilize in subsequent research.
At UCSF, we'll host information tables during the lunch hour in Saunders Court on October 19, at Genentech Hall on October 20, and at the SFGH Barnett-Briggs Library on October 21. We'll be giving out free cookies, buttons, t-shirts, and more -- so stop by and talk to us about how to change scholarly publishing.
October is Archives Month! Please take this opportunity to explore the resources in Library's Archives & Special Collections Department. Archives and Special Collections preserves and maintains rare and unique materials to support research and teaching in the history of the health sciences.
Learn about the rich history of UCSF on the Library's website, A History of UCSF. The site draws on materials from Archives & Special collections and includes a chronological history, photographs, and individual essays on important figures, buildings, and special topics. New content was added recently, including biographical sketches of every UCSF Chancellor.
The above photo of the Affiliated Colleges on Parnassus, c. 1900, is part of the UCSF Archives and is also available as a greeting card in the UCSF Library's Zazzle store. The online store carries merchandise with images from Archives and Special Collections.
Participate in the University of California Libraries Academic Ebook Survey for the chance to win one of five $50 gift certificates to the UC campus bookstore of your choice!
The University of California Libraries are surveying UC faculty, staff, and students about their preferences among print and ebooks while doing academic work. This information is being gathered to assist the UC libraries in planning future purchases, programs and services. Your participation in this survey is both voluntary and invaluable.
The Library has been running a pilot of UCSF Cross-Database Search, a tool that retrieves results from many journals and databases simultaneously. This two-year pilot will come to an end on December 31, and the service will not be continued at this point in time due to cost and low usage.
If you've used Cross-Database Search and would like to provide feedback, or you would like to be notified if we offer a similar product in the future, please contact us.
