Henri De Mondeville (ca 1260- ca 1320). Chirurgie. Paris: Felix Alcan, 1892.
Mondeville was born in Normandy and studied medicine in Paris and Montpellier before going to Bologna. Italian surgeons were at a much higher status than in France at this time.
Mondeville’s chief work, the Cyrurgia, was written between 1306-1320 and contains his basic teachings. This encyclopedia includes Mondeville’s views and practices of medical ethics, anatomy, surgery, physiology, and therapeutics.
Mondeville advocated cleanliness in treating wounds and was opposed to the use of salves. He believed suppuration hindered wound healing and routinely used ligation instead of cautery.
The Cyrurgia was not published until 1892, when Pagel, after studying manuscripts in Berlin, Erfurt, and Paris, published the original Latin text.
PubMed is the National Library of Medicine’s index to the medical literature and includes over 22 million bibliographic citations in life sciences. This one-hour session will show you how to improve your search results by using subject headings (MeSH) and advanced keyword searching techniques.
EndNote is a reference management tool that helps you to easily gather together your references in one place, organize them, and then insert them into papers and format them in a style of your choosing.
This session will walk you through the basics of using EndNote to collect and format your citations. The class will be hands-on and there will be time for questions at the end.
EndNote Desktop is available free for faculty, staff, and graduate students.
Good news! EndNote X7 for the Mac now works with Microsoft Word 2016. When you open the desktop version of EndNote, it should tell you that that there is an update available, but you can also select Check for Updates in the EndNote X7 dropdown menu. EndNote Basic (the online only version) will also prompt you to install the new Cite While You Write plug-in for Word. Whether you are using the desktop or online version, you also need to have the latest version of Word 2016 (currently version 15.18) installed.
Once Word and EndNote are both updated, the EndNote Cite While You Write tools should appear as a tab in Word. The first time you launch Word 2016 after updating EndNote, you will be asked to “grant access” to an EndNote .plist file. Simply click Grant Access; you should not be asked this again.
More information about the update, including some troubleshooting in case the tools do not automatically appear in Word, can be found at http://endnote.com/kb/138936. More information about updating Word, with a more complete explanation about “granting access,” is at http://endnote.com/kb/138936.

2117 Medical Education Research Facility (MERF)
Clara Skott was an Iowa farm wife living in South Dakota during the 1918 influenza pandemic. She received a series of injections to save off the flu. In 1918, the hypodermic needle was a symbol of modern medical practice.
Iowa doctors’ ledger books show hypos were a staple of their treatments. The records do not always indicate what was in the hypo. Clara was given a homegrown influenza vaccine. Some patients received barbiturates, vitamins, or placebos. $1.00 per injection was beyond the reach of many Iowans.
Gunn will explore county doctors’ practices and the range of ways rural Iowans handled health issues in the first half of the 20th century.
