The University of Iowa History of Medicine Society, The Classics Department, and the Center for the Book invite you to a lecture by Daniel Garrison, Emeritus Professor, Department of Classics, Northwestern University on “Vesalius Turns the Page on Ancient Medicine.” The lecture is free and open to the public. The lecture will be held on Thursday, November 20 from 5:30pm-6:30pm at The Hardin Library for the Health Sciences.
This talk concentrates on the procedural contributions Vesalius made in his 1543 De humani corporis fabrica. Vesalius began his medical studies at the University of Paris, which was still a conservative institution that relied heavily on readings from Galen and later Medieval summaries and required little or no dissection, even of animals. Vesalius introduced a new regimen at the University of Padua that called for dissection by the students and visual testing of anatomy rather than dependence upon books.
De humani corporis fabrica is one of the most important anatomy books ever published, and the John Martin Rare Book Room owns a first edition. You may view this book or others from our collection by visiting the John Martin Rare Book Room. Some images are also available in the Iowa Digital Library.
As the University of Iowa moves to EndNote as its official citation management solution, we at Hardin are here to help with the transition from RefWorks (or any other tool). At this quick workshop, you will learn how to collect your citations and bibliographic data and then import it into EndNote.
Our upcoming sessions at Hardin Library, Information Commons East, 2nd floor:
Wednesday, November 12, 2:30-3pm
Thursday, November 20, 10:30-11am
Tuesday, December 9, 9:30-10am

Hardin Library for the Health Sciences has an exhibit on post traumatic stress disorder up through December. The exhibit includes a time-line of the history of PTSD from 2000 BC-present, and resources for patients or clinicians. AboutFace from the Veteran’s Administration has videos available with personal stories from veterans with PTSD.
Scopus is a multidisciplinary database with substantial international coverage. All citations that are in EMBASE are also in Scopus. Scopus also allows you to track an article’s cited and citing references. Come to this hands-on session and learn how to search Scopus systematic reviews.
Web of Science is a citation database which covers over 10,000 journals. Web of Science specializes in citation tracking so this hands-on session will concentrate on how to do cited reference searches to find articles that cite your work. The session also demonstrates how to use the Journal Citation Index and find impact factors for journals in your discipline.
This workshop is free and available to all. Register online for this or any of our other workshops: http://www.lib.uiowa.edu/hardin/workshop/ .
This workshop will be at Hardin Library, Information Commons East, 2nd Floor from 10am-11am.
This session will walk you through the basics of using EndNote to collect and format your citations. The class will be hands-on with time for questions at the end.
Our next session is Thursday, November 6, 2-3pm.
