The Library now provides EZproxy, a new method for off-campus access to online resources. With EZproxy, UCSF users can access library resources from off the UCSF network by using their MyAccess login. You will not need to log into campus VPN in order to access the Library’s online resources.
EZproxy eliminates issues that currently exist when using web VPN with My NCBI and The New England Journal of Medicine. It will also improve access to library resources on mobile devices.
This month, the Library will offer two workshops on using Ingenuity Pathways Analysis (IPA), a biological knowledge base and software application for the analysis of genomic and proteomic datasets. Learn more about IPA.
UCSF students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to register for one of these free, in-person classes:
Artist Sarah Sze, whose large sculpture The Distance Where Magnets Pull (2011) enlivens the Parnassus Library's south stairwell, is currently representing the United States in the 55th International Art Exhibition at the 2013 Venice Biennale.
The class schedule for Summer and Fall 2013 is now available. The Library continues to offer free training in PubMed@UCSF, EndNote, RefWorks, and the CLE.
In addition to these classes, UCSF students and personnel can register for multimedia and presentation workshops, such as:
Effective January 1, 2013, the UC Libraries no longer have a systemwide agreement for online journals with the publisher Taylor & Francis. The cancellation of the Taylor & Francis contract was a UC-wide decision after an agreement could not be reached regarding the value of the UC subscription package. The decision followed a rigorous value assessment of Taylor & Francis journals based on three principles: achieving sustainable pricing, better aligning cost to value, and maintaining the highest quality journal content possible across a broad range of disciplines.
UCSF scholars can publish open access articles at no cost in Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) journals during RSC’s 2013 Gold for Gold program. RSC launched this program to help researchers who want to publish their articles open access (OA), but lack funds to pay the OA article processing charge (APC). The Gold for Gold initiative provides all RSC Gold subscribers with voucher codes to make papers available via OA, free of charge.
Updated weekly, the LGBT Life database is a premier gateway to the world's literature on issues of concern to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender populations. Details are available about every article ever published in historical publications such as Christopher Street and ONE. There is also coverage of book chapters, speeches, and dissertations, making LGBT Life a significant research resource.
In February 2013, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) published a memo directing federal science agencies “to develop plans to make the published results of federally funded research freely available to the public within one year of publication."
