The Library is pleased to introduce a one-stop search engine designed to access information from several credible resources at once. Employing a familiar, intuitive search interface, UCSF Cross-Database Search [link removed] quickly retrieves high-value results from journals and databases subscribed to by UCSF.
To offer a search tool tailored to the UCSF community, the Library partnered with Deep Web Technologies and handpicked resources in Nursing, Clinical Medicine, Drug Information, Basic Sciences, and Dentistry. Users have the option to search all, some, or one of these subject areas at a time, and the search interface makes it easy to refine lengthy results.
Try UCSF Cross-Database Search and let us know what you think.
Want to track who’s citing your papers? Are you trying to understand the breadth of UCSF’s research output?
Scopus is now available from the UCSF Library on a trial basis. Scopus allows researchers to see who has cited their work in the past, and to follow new citations going forward. It allows research officers to develop a profile of UCSF research output, both for specific years and over time.
We need your input! Our new Under Consideration page gathers all the new products that the Library is testing in order to improve your access to quality health sciences information. Currently we have two product trials that will end June 30 -- Ingenuity Pathways Analysis and Faculty of 1000 Medicine.
Please take some time to explore each tool and then complete our very short survey to give us your feedback about the products under consideration.
Also, take a few moments to check out our featured resources gathered on the same page. These are hidden gems that everyone at UCSF can access already, such as a very extensive collection of electronic books. We're always glad to get feedback from you about these and other resources.

The UCSF Library is pleased to present a digital copy of a unique edition of Samuel Hahnemann’s Organon der Heilkunst (Organon of the Medical Art), which established the field of homeopathy. The 5th edition of the Organon, published in 1833, was the last revision published in Hahnemann’s lifetime.
The UCSF Library holds Samuel Hahnemann’s own copy of the 5th edition, containing his handwritten notes and revisions for the 6th edition. The digital copy is presented in a flip-book format, allowing users to page through the volume and virtually “unfold” Hahnemann’s notes.
The Organon will be the cornerstone of an online collection of significant works in the history of homeopathy. This homeopathy collection currently includes a manuscript copy of Hahnemann’s text and revisions, used by Dr. Richard Haehl as the basis for the published 6th edition. Additional materials will be added in the future.

April 7, 2009 marks the one year anniversary of the NIH Public Access Policy, which obliges investigators of NIH-funded research to make their research articles freely available in the NIH PubMed Central archive (PMC). In 1999, UCSF Nobel Laureate and former NIH Director Harold Varmus conceived of what has now become PubMed Central. The idea, then and now, is to utilize the Internet to more broadly distribute the results of taxpayer-funded research.
