Research Tuesday Seminars

Getting Started with NIH Public Access Policy Compliance: Working Session
When: Tuesday, Jan. 23, 2018, 12:00pm – 1:00pm
Location: Matthews-Fuller Library, DHMC
Registration is required for this event.
Bring your own device to this hands-on workshop designed to get you started with complying with the NIH Open Access policy. During this workshop, we’ll work with you to connect your MyNCBI account to your eRA Commons account, populate your bibliography, and create alerts. We’ll also show you how to affiliate your publications with NIH grants and connect your ORCiD and MyNCBI accounts.

Managing Your References: Why it’s Important and How to Simplify the Process Using Mendeley
When: Tuesday, Jan. 30, 2018, 12:00pm – 1:00pm
Location: Matthews-Fuller Library, DHMC
Registration is required for this event.
Managing your references is a critical part of the research process. Luckily, there are many products that can help. These products can import references from article indexes (e.g., PubMed), organize references in a personal library, and insert citations into your paper. During this seminar, we will demonstrate Mendeley, a free cloud-based and desktop reference management program, to provide you with the information you need to get started with Mendeley.***DHMC Users*** Before attending this session, please create an account at Mendeley.com, and install the Word plugin and the desktop version of Mendeley. The DHMC computer Help Desk needs to authorize the installation of the plug- ins and apps that make Mendeley useful. The DHMC computer help desk can be reached at (603) 650-2222 or 5-2222. Please email Heather.Johnson@dartmouth.edu with questions.

Copyright: Can I use this?
When: Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2018, 12:00pm – 1:00pm
Location: Matthews-Fuller Library, DHMC
Registration is required for this event.
In this workshop, we’ll learn about the most important parts of U.S. copyright law as they pertain to use, reuse and sharing of all kinds of materials in settings such as presentations, teaching, and publishing. We’ll address questions such as:

  • Can I use this graph, figure or image in my presentation? What if my presentation will be distributed as part of a conference proceedings?
  • Is it OK to post PDFs of articles, chapters, images, or video materials on my course or professional web sites, and how much can I post?
  • I want some – but not all – of my course website to be publicly available — is this possible?
  • Using Dartmouth’s copyright policy and guidelines, as well as best practices in specific areas such as documentary films, and other tools such as Creative Commons and open educational resources, we will decipher what copyright and Fair Use mean for your work. Bring your questions and examples!

Managing Personal, Journal and Article Impact: What does it all mean?
When: Tuesday, Feb. 13, 2018, 12:00pm – 1:00pm
Location: Matthews-Fuller Library, DHMC
Registration is required for this event.
Research impact is a buzz word in academia. Metrics, such as journal impact factor, h-index, citation analysis and altmetrics attempt to quantify impact. In this workshop we will:

  • Discuss impact metrics, what they measure, and why (and if) they matter
  • Show tools to determine these metrics (e.g. how to calculate your h-index?)
  • Demo ways of tracking interest in your publications using Web of Science
  • Highlight features of the Becker Model for assessing research impact
  • Discuss best practices for optimizing measurement of your research impact

Showcasing and discovering research with PROFILES@Dartmouth
When: Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2018, 12:00pm – 1:00pm
Location: Matthews-Fuller Library, DHMC
Registration is required for this event.
PROFILES@Dartmouth is a SYNERGY-supported research networking tool that offers opportunities for discovering who is doing what in research and scholarship at Dartmouth. Visitors can search for SYNERGY-related faculty members and others by name, keyword, subject area or anything else in their profile, including publications and grants. Learn what PROFILES@Dartmouth can do for you, including how to easily update your publications list and basic biography info. Includes opportunity to set up profile on-site.​

Positive study vibes to Geisel students

 

The library becomes a second home to medical students who are starting to wind down the Fall term and prepare for exams. We see students with their headphones in and papers, laptops, and highlighters scattered across tables and study carrels. Cereal boxes, food containers, and bananas and oranges can sometimes be found alongside them. And in the quiet afternoon, the occasional student can be found taking a ten minute power nap.

During these stressful times, the library tries to help support our medical students as much as possible. Aside from our helpful staff, books, and many resources, we also offer quiet study spaces, lamps for late night studying, computers and mobile device chargers, and study break materials like coloring pages, puzzles, and origami.

From everyone at the Biomedical Libraries, we wish you all the best! You’ve Got This!

Books are returning to Dana Biomedical Library

New Dana Book ShelvesDana has two new sets of shelves in the East Reading Room to accommodate nearly 900 books recently moved from the Library Depository.  Books were selected to be moved based on currency (priority given to those published 2010 and on) and recent circulation (regardless of publication date).    They include the following topics:  biology, ecology, and basic health and medicine.  This collection was the result of the Biomedical Libraries Monograph Project and the desire to create a browsing collection at Dana.

Painting Exhibit by Georgie Runkle at The Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library

Newfane Church Painting by Georgie Runckle The Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library is proud to host an exhibit of oil paintings by Georgie Runkle.  Georgie lives on the Rock River in Marlboro, Vermont where she enjoys painting covered bridges, local barns, and sugar houses because they are iconic Vermont structures that she feels are slowly disappearing.  Her goal is to preserve them in the only way that she can…on canvas.  She also loves painting in the Chesapeake Bay area, Quebec, Canada and locales along the Atlantic coast.  A few of the places where Georgie has studied are the Barnes Foundation, the Delaware Art Museum, and the Edward L. Loper, Sr. Art School.  Georgie’s paintings will be on display through March 2018.

Artist Statement:
Oil Painting by Georgie RunkleMy paintings are deliberate.  They are a mosaic of complex color and shapes arranged on a canvas to create a visual expression of an inner landscape.  My art becomes what I see in nature.

I am a plein air painter.  As you drive through southern Vermont you may see me painting along the roadside, in a field, or beside a barn…anywhere that the setting has attracted my aesthetic sensibility.

–Georgie Runkle
