What's New at the
Veterinary Medical Library?
Compiled by Andrea L. Dinkelman, Assistant Professor
Librarian for the the College of Veterinary Medicine
Happy New Year from "Your Librarian"!
I hope all of you had an enjoyable semester break. Take a few moments to review this issue of "What's New" as I think you'll be very excited about my announcements regarding expanded online access to existing journals as well as access to new journals related to the life sciences. A number of journals that were on the Library's "journal wishlist" have been purchased for 2009; some of your "wishes" have been granted! Please continue to email me your suggestions for additional journals, books, and DVDs; I appreciate your input.
If you are planning on including any research assignments in your courses this semester, please contact me if you are interested in having me provide instruction to your class. If you are interested in learning more about library resources (e.g. PubMed search tips, current awareness tools, etc.), please contact me via email to schedule an appointment.
Have a great semester!
Andrea Dinkelman, Science & Technology Librarian
