San Francisco "summer" weather got you down? Take a break in the Library and curl up with a book from our Popular Reading Collection.
On the Parnassus Library's main floor, we have best sellers, popular fiction, and non-fiction, not to mention comfortable chairs and views of the city in all its foggy glory. We also have newspapers and magazines. UCSF personnel and students may check out books for 4 weeks.
At the Mission Bay FAMRI Library, we offer newspapers and magazines.
Due to significant budget cuts across the UC system, the UCSF Library must cut online journal titles more aggressively than in the past. Journal subscription costs represent the single largest amount of the Library's collection budget. For 2011, the UC Library system is coordinating a review of several publisher journal packages that are up for renewal in order to bring costs down.
An exhibit on the 5th floor of the Library features key historic texts in the history of occupational health, ranging from the 15th to the 20th century.
On display are several editions of Bernardino Ramazzini's De Morbis Artificum (considered the founding work of occupational medicine), including the first edition and the first English edition, Diseases of Tradesmen. Earlier works, such as a rare edition of Stockhausen's Libellus De Lithargyrii Fumo Noxio Morbificio, describe diseases of miners.
The exhibit includes works by Charles Thackrah, Florence Nightingale, Horace Vernon, Alice Hamilton, and other significant contributors to the field.
The exhibit will be on view through August 26, in the display cases outside the Technology Commons.
Please read the attached letter regarding a possible boycott of Nature Publishing Group journals by UC faculty. We urge you to read this important update, which has been jointly prepared by the University Libraries and the University Committee on Library and Scholarly Communication. Please contact me directly with your comments and concerns.
The Library is looking for partners for the renewal of the Ingenuity Pathways Analysis (IPA) subscription. IPA is a software program that helps researchers model, analyze, and understand the complex biological and chemical systems at the core of life science research.
