    Electronic Journals List Enhanced Posted Sunday, June 30, 2002, 12:00 am
    The Library's Electronic Journal list has been updated and enhanced to improve access and facilitate usage. Each letter of the alphabet now has its own separate web page which makes navigation through the list much quicker and easier. Access indicator codes now enable users to tell at a glance which locations are allowed access to a specific title. The indicators include:

    = available everywhere or with password access (as indicated by the password list button)
    = available from the School of Medicine building
    = available from the College of Nursing
    = available from the Grand Forks Family Practice Center
    = available from Fargo Medical Education Center
    = available from Bismarck Family Practice Center
    = available from Minot Family Practice Center
    = available from the Human Nutrition Research Center
    = available from the entire UND Grand Forks campus
    = available with proxy if your IP range is not within the ranges listed
    = available with IP access only

    In preparation for the access buttons, license restrictions were reviewed and updated. In addition, several new titles were added to the list.

    Project with Tribal College Libraries Posted Monday, April 29, 2002, 12:00 am
    The Harley E. French Library of the Health Sciences was recently awarded a $40,000 "Access to Electronic Health Information for the Public" subcontract from the Greater Midwest Region office of the National Networks of Libraries of Medicine. The subcontract is entitled "Tribal College Libraries: Linking Native Americans to Health Information." This project has four major objectives. They are to:

       * Train Native American health care consumers and health professionals needing consumer health information to find reliable electronic consumer health information through partnerships with tribal college library staff.
       * Develop a health information web page to prominently promote MEDLINEplus, PubMed, and ClinicalTrials.gov as well as other web resources applicable to Native American health consumers.
       * Provide tribal college libraries with access to a full text health information database.
       * Place two computer workstations with Internet access dedicated to the Native American consumers and health professionals needing consumer health information in all five North Dakota tribal college libraries.

    The HEF Library in partnership with the tribal college libraries of North Dakota is planning and implementing the project over an 18 month period from March 1, 2002 to August 31, 2003. The five tribal colleges in North Dakota are: Cankdeska Cikana (Little Hoop) Community College in Fort Totten, Fort Berthold Community College in New Town, Sitting Bull College in Fort Yates, Turtle Mountain Community College in Belcourt, and United Tribes Technical College in Bismarck. Judy Rieke is the principal investigator for the subcontract. Contact her for more information (jrieke@medicine.nodak.edu).

    Vector NTI available Posted Monday, April 29, 2002, 12:00 am
    North Dakota BRIN is bringing UND School of Medicine & Health Sciences researchers the opportunity to work with an integrated sequence analysis software solution called Vector NTI.

    For more information on Vector NTI, go to http://www.informaxinc.com/solutions/vectornti/vector7.html. To use the software, please go to: http://www.med.und.nodak.edu/depts/library/download/VectorNTISuite7.exe to download the needed software onto your machine. Instructions for installing the Vector NTI software are available at: http://www.med.und.nodak.edu/depts/library/download/VNTI7_Install.pdf

    After the software is installed on your machine, you need to set up access to the licensing program which resides on a server here in the Library of the Health Sciences, UND. Please e-mail either myself (jrieke@medicine.nodak.edu) or Theresa Norton (tnorton@medicine.nodak.edu) at the UND Library of the Health Sciences, for that URL, and instructions for entering the URL into the license manager portion of your software.

    Manuals for using the Vector NTI are available online at: http://www.informaxinc.com/support/tutorials.html.

    Electronic Journal Access Expanded Posted Saturday, April 27, 2002, 12:00 am
    The staff of the Library of the Health Sciences has added electronic access to three large groups of journals over the past few months. We were able to do this through cooperation with the Chester Fritz Library. Use of these journals is available across campus. Remote use (away from the Grand Forks campus) is available by dialing in through the UND modem pool or by using proxy. Details are available here on our website.

    The journals are those published by the American Chemical Society, Kluwer, and Blackwell Publishing

    Individual titles that are biomedical in scope are incorporated into our e-journal list of titles at our website and in ODIN. Please feel free to contact us with questions.

    Home Page Redesign Posted Tuesday, February 12, 2002, 12:00 am
    The library's home page has been redesigned. The new design enhancements are intended to allow navigation throughout the site to be much simpler. Additionally, the site pages have been divided up into smaller, faster loading pages. All pages are designed to have a consistent look and feel and to allow us to add new content more quickly. The drop down menus from our previous site have been changed so they are now at the top of the page. In addition to the new design, we have added a "Contact Us" page to allow you to send your comments or questions to library staff.

    If you have any questions about the new site, please contact Theresa Norton at tnorton@medicine.nodak.edu or 701-777-2946

    New E-Journals Posted Monday, January 7, 2002, 12:00 am
    Three hundred and sixty-three new full-text electronic biomedical journals have been added to the library's web site in the last three months. Two hundred and twenty-six of these titles are published by Blackwell and 137 by Kluwer. New titles include: Annals of Clinical Psychiatry, The Histochemical Journal, the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, and the European Journal of Neuroscience. The library now offers a total of 1074 full-text electronic biomedical journals for use by School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS) and College of Nursing (CON) faculty, staff, and students.

    Although licensing restrictions prohibit the library from providing remote access to some of the 1074 full-text electronic journals, many of the titles, including the 363 new titles, are available through proxy. A user name and password will be required when attempting to access licensed resources by proxy. Please note that proxy access will be limited to people affiliated with the University of North Dakota's SMHS and CON. Those affiliated with the SMHS will use the username and password from their medicine email account. People from the CON will need to apply for a proxy username and password.

    Requests for medicine.nodak.edu e-mail accounts should be directed to the Computer Services Department at 701-777-5046. College of Nursing faculty, staff, and students will need to contact Theresa Norton at 701-777-2946 or tnorton@medicine.nodak.edu to set up a special proxy account. There will be no charge for this service.

    Other questions regarding proxy access should be directed to the library's Reference Staff by e-mail at hflref@medicine.nodak.edu or by telephone at 701-777-3994.

    Proxy Access Posted Wednesday, April 25, 2001, 12:00 am
    Until recently, the majority of the full-text journals licensed by the Harley E. French Library of the Health Sciences were only accessible from a few locations around the state. Now however, the library, in cooperation with the School of Medicine and Health Sciences' Computer Services Department, can provide remote access to many of those journals by using a proxy server. Please note that proxy access will be limited to people affiliated with the University of North Dakota's School of Medicine and Health Sciences. Users will need to configure their Internet browsers for proxy access before they can access proxied journals. Unfortunately, proxy access is blocked by some firewalls. Instructions for configuring Netscape and Internet Explorer for proxy are available at: http://harley.med.und.nodak.edu/?content=proxy. Once the browser is configured, the user name and password of a medicine.nodak.edu e-mail account will be required when attempting to access licensed resources. Questions regarding proxy access should be directed to the library's Reference Staff by e-mail or by telephone at 701-777-3994. Requests for medicine.nodak.edu e-mail accounts should be directed to the Computer Services Department at 701-777-5046.

    NOTE: Licensing restrictions prohibit the library from providing remote access to some journal titles.

    PubMed LinkOut Available Posted Monday, February 26, 2001, 12:00 am
    A PubMed LinkOut connection between some of the citations in the PubMed version of MEDLINE and some of the Harley French Library of the Health Sciences' paid subscriptions is now available. LinkOut is a feature that allows publishers, aggregators, libraries, biological databases, sequence centers, and other Web resources to display links to their sites on items from the PubMed MEDLINE database. These links can take you to the provider's site to obtain the full text of articles or related resources, e.g., consumer health information. When you are looking at the abstract or citation display in PubMed MEDLINE and see a UND button, you can select the UND button which will often lead you to the full-text document. Please note that to have access to the UND LinkOut button you will need to go to the web site of the Harley French Library of the Health Sciences and then select MEDLINE - PubMed. The UND button will NOT appear if you come into PubMed from any other site.

    To see this PubMed LinkOut feature do the following:
    Go to the HEF Library web site at http://harley.med.und.nodak.edu/
    Go to "Direct Links" or "Index"
    Select "MEDLINE"
    Select "PubMed"
    In the "search" box enter: Dubin JS
    Your search will produce an article with Dubin JS as the author, titled "Reexpansion pulmonary edema"
    Select the link of "Dubin JS"
    You should now see the UND button. When you select this button you will be able to go directly to the full-text of the article cited if you are an "authorized user" of the HEF Library of the Health Sciences "Electronic Journals". In PubMed, the UND link will display in the Abstract, Citation, and LinkOut display formats. Links to other providers also appear on the LinkOut display format.

    Use the PubMed Cubby feature to customize your LinkOut preferences if you would like to display only the links of interest to you.

    For assistance with PubMed Link out please contact the Reference Desk.
