images.MD class

I will be teaching a session on how to use our online image database, imagesMD, on Thursday, July 14 from 12:0-1:00pm in the AHC Learning Commons.

imagesMD is an database of over 50,000 images from the collections of Current Science Ltd., a leading publisher of medical atlases. While the vast majority of the photographs, charts, tables, and graphs focus on specialties of internal medicine, there are some images that discuss a myriad of oral health issues.

You can register for this (or any Bio-Medical Library class) online. Hope to see you there!

New Ovid Interface is Here

The new interface to Ovid databases came online today (July 12, 2005). There were some problems with Ovid earlier today, but these seem to have been fixed.

It is worth noting, that Ovid recommends the following minimum browsers:
*Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0
*Netscape Navigator 7.0
*Mozilla Firefox 1.0

If you notice anything strange happening with Ovid over the next few weeks, please report your problems to MedRef (our email reference service), or you can call the Reference Desk at 612-626-3260.
