New year brings new skills!

aceIs learning a new skill on your list of New Year’s resolutions? Do you want to get organized, reduce stress, or manage time differently in 2017? The UT Southwestern Health Sciences Digital Library & Learning Center can help with that!

More than 22,000 training books and modules housed in the Academy of Career Enhancement’s Books 24×7 collection are available through the Library catalog and includes a variety of topics including project management, time management, work-life balance, stress reduction, and organizational effectiveness. By using the Library catalog to access the entire Books 24×7 collection, you may dive further into a particular topic via the sidebar. Once you locate an item of interest, simply click on the online access link and use your campus log-in to continue. You can quickly jump to particular chapters, take notes, create bookmarks, and more.

This collection – part of the Academy of Career Enhancement (ACE) – is provided to the UT Southwestern community through an enterprise license of online resources for the continuing development and engagement of the UT Southwestern workforce. The multi-year contract is funded by several campus departments, including the Office of Human Resources.

Library Catalog provides alternate access to journal subscriptions

4/6/2016 UPDATE:  We believe that the issues with the Ejournals AtoZ list have been resolved, but we will continue to closely monitor the situation.

Are you wondering why your favorite journals might not be showing up in Ejournals A to Z or via a full text link resolver in PubMed?

Unfortunately, many of our prominent ejournal collections were temporarily hidden from public view. We are in the process of re-establishing those connections and hope to resolve the matter as soon as possible.

In the meantime, our Library Catalog has all our ejournal listings, including access links with available subscription dates. Please check there first if you find that an established title is temporarily unavailable in Ejournals A to Z or a full text link does not work as expected.

 

Update your bookmark! A new enhanced Ejournals A to Z to replace existing interface this week

ejazlaunchChanges are coming to your Digital Library! The popular Ejournals and Ebooks A to Z interface you use to connect to the Library’s current journal holdings is being replaced with a new version on Tuesday, October 20, 2015. The enhanced Ejournals A to Z will feature quick auto-populating for journal titles and a smoother interface experience.

All Ebooks are now searchable through the Library Catalog. This provides enhanced searching capabilities, more collection options like the Books 24×7 series, quick linking, and individual record information about usage (i.e. single seat, multi-seat, chapter download restrictions placed by publisher/vendor, etc.).

During the Ejournals A to Z transition period, previous bookmarks for Ejournals and Ebooks A to Z may not work anymore. In addition, full-text linking in resources like PubMed, Ovid MEDLINE, and Scopus may be temporarily unavailable. Please report any issues with access or linking promptly through this online form to ensure quick response and resolution with EBSCO, the vendor responsible for this interface transition.

Status updates will be available from the Library’s home page for any issues that may arise during this transition.
