Dana Medical Library now has a revitalized print book collection to complement its growing digital collection. Earlier this year, Dana’s collection of books was moved to off-site storage for several months while the library underwent renovations. The books returned in May 2017 and now have a new location in the back north end of the library.
From the clinical book collection, look for the recent (2018) edition of The 5 Minute Clinical Consult, or browse popular reading materials such as: Memory’s Last Breath: Field Notes on My Dementia by Gerda Saunders and UVM’s “2017 first year read” entitled: A Deadly Wandering: A Mystery, a Landmark Investigation, and the Astonishing Science of Attention in the Digital Age. These books, along with many more, can be found in our collection by searching CatQuest on the Dana Medical Library website.
For those who prefer the convenience of electronic books, Dana has added new e-book collections that include titles such as the USMLE First Aid Series for test preparation and the newest LWW Health Library collection, featuring such titles as Grant’s Dissector (16th ed) and Bates Guide to Physical Examination (12th ed).
In contrast, the print journal collection has moved off-site permanently to provide additional space for study and the new Larner Learning Commons. However, readers can always request a scan of a print journal article using the appropriate form found on our website. Email delivery takes place every afternoon, Monday through Friday. Researchers can also request older books that are housed in the Library Research Annex.
All books, regardless of their format or location, can be found by searching CatQuest.
