Art for Kids Exhibit at Matthews-Fuller Library

AFK16The Matthews-Fuller Health Sciences Library is pleased to host a new collection of artwork made by children in the “Art for Kids” Program. Art for Kids (AFK) is a monthly art program at the AVA gallery in Lebanon, NH, for children with chronic medical conditions and their siblings. The dynamic and creative children work one-on-one with a volunteer student from the Geisel School of Medicine to create fun and magical pieces of artwork.

Art for Kids Program: http://avagallery.org/community-programs/art-for-kids/

The exhibit will run from April 24, 2016, until the end of July and will display selected pieces of artwork made by the children over the past year.

Research Tuesday Seminar Series at DHMC

The Biomedical Libraries are pleased to offer a seminar series at DHMC beginning on Tuesday, February 2, 2016. Join us for one, a few, or for all sessions to learn about a variety of topics from systematic reviews to data management to copyright. Please register by following the links in the event titles.


Managing Your References: Why it’s Important and How to Simplify the Process 

Date: February 2, 2016
Time: 12:00- 1:00 PM
Location: DHMC, Cook Conference Room
Instructor: Heather Johnson, MLIS, Research and Education Librarian, Biomedical Libraries; Tom Mead, MLS, Research and Education Librarian, Biomedical Libraries

Description: Managing your references is a critical part of the research process. There are many products, such as EndNote, Refworks, Zotero, and Mendeley that can help. These tools can import references from article indexes (e.g., PubMed), organize references in a database, and insert citations into your paper. During this seminar, we will demonstrate RefWorks, a free online product with optional plugins for ease of inserting references, as well as EndNote, a reference management software with robust organizational capabilities.


Where to Publish: Evaluating Journal Publishers

Date: February 9, 2016
Time: 12:00- 1:00 PM
Location: DHMC, Conference Room 4H
Instructors: Jen Green, MLIS, Digital Scholarship Librarian., Dartmouth College Library; Barbara DeFelice, MLIS, Program Director for Scholarly Communication, Copyright and Publishing, Dartmouth College Library

Description: The proliferation of journal publishers and journal titles has created both opportunity and confusion in the world of journal publishing.  As an author, you have many more choices among publishers and journal titles.  You even have choices in how you can increase access to your work and the impact of your work.   Despite this growing complexity, there are new tools and reliable tricks for evaluating publishers, choosing journals, and making your work more broadly known. Hear about these, share how you choose a publisher and a journal, and bring your questions!


So you’re thinking of doing a systematic review?

Date: February 16, 2016
Time: 12:00- 1:00 PM
Location: DHMC, Cook Conference Room
Instructor: Heather Blunt, MLIS, Research and Education Librarian, Biomedical Libraries

Description: Writing systematic reviews is not for the faint of heart; it’s an elaborate process. This seminar will:

  • Identify the steps in the systematic review process.
  • Review the timeline and other resources necessary to complete the project.
  • Explore standards for systematic review development, including PRISMA, Cochrane, and the Institute of Medicine.
  • Review how reference management software (e.g., EndNote or Refworks) can organize the process.
  • Discuss how the librarian can help.

Managing Personal, Journal and Article Impact: What does it all mean?

Date: February 23, 2016
Time: 12:00- 1:00 PM
Location: DHMC, Cook Conference Room
Instructor: Pamela Bagley, MLIS, PhD, Research and Education Librarian, Biomedical Libraries

Description: 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

Copyright: Can I use this?

Date: March 1, 2016
Time: 12:00- 1:00 PM
Location: DHMC, Cook Conference Room
Instructor: Jen Green, ,MLIS Digital Scholarship Librarian., Dartmouth College Library; Barbara DeFelice, MLIS, Program Director for Scholarly Communication, Copyright and Publishing, Dartmouth College Library

Description: 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:

  • “How can I know if my use of copyrighted materials falls under ‘Fair Use’?
  • “Is it OK to post PDFs of articles, chapters, images, or video materials, 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 fields 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.

Facilitated by Barbara DeFelice, Program Director for Scholarly Communication, Copyright and Publishing, and Jen Green, Digital Scholarship Librarian, Dartmouth College Library.


Elements of a Research Data Management Plan

Date: March 15, 2016
Time: 12:00- 1:00 PM
Location: DHMC, Conference Room 4H
Instructor: Lora Leligdon, MSLIS, Physical Sciences Librarian, Kresge Physical Sciences Library, Dartmouth College

Description: Many funding agencies require or encourage the development of data management plans for research.  But what are the essentials of a fundable data management plan?  This workshop will cover the basics of research data management and the elements of data management plans.  Useful tools that enhance the public access components of grant proposals and research, including the DMPTool, will be discussed.
