Dana Medical Library: Your Medical and Health Science Information Home

This issue of the Dana Newsletter is coming just in time for the Holidays. Though our hours will be reduced over the extended break period, we will be open several hours most days and on the weekends. If you are like me and want to get some writing or research done over the holidays, the Dana Library will be open for you. Check for specific hours in the article below.

I recently attended the Practice Improvement Conference of the Society of  Teachers of Family Medicine. It focused on the theme of the Medical Home. The Medical Home is a framework of practices which promote teamwork and patient relationship-centered care.  The idea is that everyone who is in touch with the patient is part of the care team: the doctor, the nurse, medical office staff, and the patient herself. What does this have to do with the Library? We at Dana would like to be on your Health Science Information “Care Team.” As library users and information seekers, you approach library-services through so many avenues: in person through study at a library carrel, finding electronic journal articles through the website, requesting a literature search or inter-library loan to name just a few. We hope to make it as seamless and easy to do as possible. Need help? Click on the E-resource Problem button described in the article below or Ask a Librarian.

Best wishes for the holidays and the New Year from the Staff and Faculty at the Dana Medical Library.
