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.
Need just a little help? See our EndNote guide.
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.

Amy Blevins, Clinical Education Library at Hardin Library for the Health Sciences and adjunct faculty in the Department of Internal Medicine edited Curriculum-Based Library Instruction: From Cultivating Faculty Relationships to Assessment. The book is part of the Medical Librarian Association Book Series published by Rowman and Littlefield.
Chapters were also written by University of Iowa Libraries librarians Dan Gall, Jennifer DeBerg, and Kim Bloedel.
In this advanced searching workshop, you will develop skills in
- constructing subject searches
- using advanced keyword search techniques
- combining searches
- saving searches
- modifying search strategies in health science databases (like PubMed, Embase, or CINAHL)
This session may be of use to anyone is conducting a comprehensive literature review. For those planning to publish a systematic review, consider attending The Nuts and Bolts of Systematic Reviews prior to this session.
Our next sessions:
Thursday, October 16, 11am-12pm Information Commons East, 2nd Floor
Wednesday, November 19, 10-11am Information Commons East, 2nd floor

Cambus will be re-routing East routes on Friday afternoon-early evening because of street closures caused by the University of Iowa Homecoming parade. All routes will run, but the busses may be off schedule due to the re-routing.
Iowa City Transit will make the following changes on Friday:
- The bus interchange will move from Washington and Clinton streets beginning at 6 a.m. until Saturday.
- The last Northside Shuttle of the day will depart the alternate interchange on Court Street at 2:45 p.m. The Northside Shuttle will follow its normal route.
- The last Southside Shuttle will depart the alternate interchange on Court Street at 3:30 p.m.
- After the Homecoming Parade on Friday, the Night Manville Heights and Night North Dodge bus routes will continue to detour due to the closure of Clinton Street between Jefferson Street and Washington Street for the UI Homecoming Pep Rally.
- The outbound bus stops located at the intersections of Clinton and Jefferson and at Jefferson and Linn, and the inbound bus stops located at the intersections of Market and Linn and Clinton and Jefferson, will be out of service during the UI Homecoming events. Customers who normally use these stops can catch their buses at the bus interchange at the Old Capitol Mall.
Streets downtown will be closed to vehicle traffic along the parade route and staging area which is a couple block radius of the Old Capital. Avoid driving through downtown from 3pm-9pm Friday.
This class will provide a framework for developing a literature search for a systematic review, with a focus on health sciences.
Topics will include the following:
- standards and criteria to consider
- establishing a plan
- registering a protocol
- developing a research question
- determining where to search
- identifying search terms
- reporting search strategies
- managing references
