The client/download version of SciFinder Scholar will be retired on June 30, 2011. After that, you will only be able to access SciFinder via the web. If you currently use the client to access Chemical Abstracts and other databases, you are advised to begin using SciFinder Web as soon as possible.
Search for books and journals right on your mobile device! UCSF Mobile Web now includes an option to search the Library Catalog. From the Library options page, choose the link, "Find Books and Journals."
The mobile library catalog is currently optimized for iOS and Android. Later releases will support a wider range of mobile devices.
Effective February 15, 2011, the UC system will lose online access to new articles from journals published by Informa Healthcare. All articles published online through 2010 will continue to be accessible under the terms of the UC-wide contract. Through the contract, UCSF had current access to 115 titles from Informa, which was formerly part of Taylor & Francis Publishing.
A new exhibit highlighting prints and scrolls from UCSF's East Asian Collection is now on display in the Parnassus Campus Library's first floor gallery. Enlarged reproductions of several of the prints also adorn the walls of the Teaching and Learning Center on the second floor. The large-scale prints enhance the TLC's "huddle spaces," which were designed to promote impromptu collaboration among students and faculty outside of the classroom.
You are cordially invited to visit UCSF's new Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) during our week-long grand opening. The TLC will be hosting four days of tours, demonstrations, and workshops to introduce our community to the new interprofessional teaching and learning facilities.
All events take place on the second floor of the Parnassus Campus Library.
Applications for the Instructional Grants Program, 2011-2012, are now being accepted. Funds are available to support instructional improvement projects focused on interprofessional health education, to be initiated during the 2011-2012 academic year. This grant program is funded by UCSF's new Center for Excellence in Interprofessional Health Education and the Library. The Center envisions "UCSF graduates will be able to work collaboratively and interprofessionally to advance patient care, public service, and research."
