Dr. Last week Dr. David Sackett, considered by many to be the father of evidenced-based medicine, passed away. He founded the first department of clinical epidemiology and biostatistics in the world at McMaster University, Ontario in 1967 and established the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine in the UK in 1994.
In honor of Dr. Sackett’s tremendous impact on evidence-based practice, we are sharing a small sample of citations to articles and books from the Hardin Library collection below.

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.
Our next session is:
Tuesday, May 5, 2-3pm, Information Commons East, Hardin Library for the Health Sciences

Professional midwifery organizations began in 1452.
This exhibit highlights items from the John Martin Rare Book Room at the Hardin Library for the Health Sciences.
The exhibit addresses antiquity, medical perspectives, innovations, pioneers, and notable books.
Two years ago, the University Libraries and the Provost’s Office launched an Open Access Fund to pay the processing fees related to open access publishing.
The fund is meant to encourage the University community to publish their research in open access journals. Articles required to be deposited according to NIH’s Public Access Policy are not eligible for the fund.
The open access publishing model allows free, immediate access to research and allows authors to retain intellectual property rights to their research. Some open access journals charge article processing fees to make the work freely available online. More information about the fund can be found here.
To date, 73 funded items have been funded, published and added to our institutional repository, with 10 published in 2015, 40 in 2014, and 23 in 2013. An additional 17 items have been approved and are awaiting publication. The author publishing charges for these 73 articles total $101,605.03, for an average cost of $1,391.85.
Open access journals which charge author fees are more common in the sciences. Our collection of articles is similarly heavy in the sciences.
Most of the articles are in journals that are completely open access. A few are in hybrid journals. (If you have an item in a hybrid journal, you can may be able to post a version of the article in IRO without paying an additional fee. Contact Janna Lawrence for more information.) One article is available freely on the publisher’s site, but we cannot add it to our collection, because the publisher required that the authors give away their copyright of the article to the publisher as a condition of publication.
Beginning this week, all library materials may be renewed online as well as in person.
You may bring your annual loans to the library to be renewed for another year, or renew online by selecting “Renew My Materials” on Hardin’s website.

You will learn how to use tools such as Ulrichs, Journal Citation Reports, Web of Science, and Scopus to determine the impact factor that journals, articles, and authors have had on a particular field.
Impact factors, Eigenfactors, and H-indices will also be discussed.
This session will be held Wednesday, April 22, from 10-11am in East Information Commons, Hardin Library.
