With the retirement of Bill Wiese, Andrea Dinkelman and Heather Lewin will be serving as interim librarians for the College of Veterinary Medicine and the Department of Animal Science.

Prior to receiving her Masters in Library Science from the University of Illinois, she was a community pharmacist for nine years in Lincoln, NE. Andrea has a B.S. in Biology from Nebraska Wesleyan University and a PharmD from the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
Heather joined Parks Library in November 2006. She received her MLIS through the University of Southern Mississippi's online program while living in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Heather has a B.A. in biochemistry from Spring Arbor University in Spring Arbor, Michigan. Heather is the subject specialist for Chemistry and Natural Resource Ecology and Management.

"Get it@ISU" is a name of a new tool offered by the Library. The tool provides a direct link from a database citation to the full text of the article (if available). You will see small "Get it@ISU" buttons in most of the Library's major databases. After clicking on this button, another window will open. If the Library has electronic access to the full-text, there will be a direct link to the article. If full-text is not available, click on the link to the ISU Library Catalog to determine whether the item is available in print. If neither the full-text or print is available, click on the link to request the item from Interlibrary Loan.
In most cases, clicking on the link to the full-text will go directly to the article (if available). However, in my testing, I've noticed that sometimes the link goes to the journal's home page or a table of contents. Please report any problems you encounter. If you encounter a broken link, and it appears that full text should be available, please let me know. We're still getting the "bugs" worked out!
If you use PubMed on a regular basis, please note the following.

SAVE THESE DATES!
On Wednesday, March 26, 2008 and Thursday, March 27, 2008, two presenters from the NCBI will return to ISU to offer four mini-courses. Based on the success of last spring's mini-courses, I decided to schedule additional mini-courses for 2008. The complete listing of mini-courses is available here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Class/minicourses/
Four mini-courses will be offered. Based on interest from last spring, most likely, "Microbial Genomes QuickStart" will be one of the courses. If you have an interest in some of the other mini-courses listed under the link above, please let Andrea know.
