How do you best learn? With more and more advanced, interactive multi-media content buzzing around these days, licensing partners are finding that students learn best though audio pronunciations, videos and other multi-dimensional outlets and forums. How is this changing the face of our electronic resources?
Davis’s Drug Guide for Nurses, one of STAT!Ref’s most popular resources for nursing, now contains a component that makes it easier for students and practicing nurses to learn about important drug information. STAT!Ref is pleased to announce that audio pronunciations have been added to the monographs in this very important resource!

The nine specialty Archives Journals published by the American Medical Association in The JAMA Network have changed their names as of January 1, 2013.
The journals have been renamed JAMA Dermatology, JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery, JAMA Internal Medicine, JAMA Neurology, JAMA Ophthalmology, JAMA Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery, JAMA Pediatrics, JAMA Psychiatry and JAMA Surgery. Two of the specialty journals had their new names shortened: the Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine has become JAMA Pediatrics and the Archives of General Psychiatry in now known as JAMA Psychiatry. For a list of old/new names and old/new ISSNs, please visit http://jamanetwork.com/SS/New_ISSNs.aspx.
The University Library has online subscriptions to all of the titles and has print subscriptions to all of them except JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery. The print issues can be found in their new locations following JAMA in the Current Browsing area on the 3rd floor and in the 3rd floor journal stacks.
Welcome back for winter quarter. The library is back to regular hours of operation:
Sunday: 10:00am to 11:00pm
Monday – Thursday: 7:30am to 11:00pm
Friday: 7:30am to 2:00pm
The fourth floor of the Del E. Webb Memorial Library continues to be closed due to construction. New lighting has been installed as well as the framework for the new ceiling.
Happy New Year 2013
In observance of the New Year’s holiday, the Del E. Webb Memorial Library will be closed on New Year’s Eve Monday, December 31 and New Year’s Day Tuesday, January 1. The library will re-open, continuing its recess schedule on Wednesday, January 2 and on Monday, January 7 the library will resume its regular operating schedule.
Merry Christmas to One and All
The Del E. Webb Library will be closed on Monday, December 24 and Tuesday, December 25. We will reopen on Wednesday, December 26 following our recess schedule of 8am to 6pm.
You may have noticed that we have not replaced the carpet on the fourth floor since the flood this summer…well we have been busy planning! We are going to renovate the entire floor. That’s right — new ceiling, new LED lighting, new carpet, and complete new look. Work will start on Thursday, December 13th with preparation for removing the current ceiling. On Monday, December 17th the ceiling comes down and we start in earnest. The fourth floor will be closed during the Christmas break and work on the fourth floor will continue into January. We are so excited that we will have a beautiful new study space for you when the project is completed.
Did you know our catalog can now search the Loma Linda University’s Digital Archive? Try it out such as searching for “Burden Hall” from the catalog search. Also look for image results from the “LLU Digital Archive” facet on the left of the search result page.
From Sunday, December 2nd through Thursday, December 13th the library has extended hours: Monday-Thursday 7:30am to Midnight, Friday 7:30am to 2pm, Sunday 10am to Midnight. Study with us! And when you do, you’re invited to take breaks, enjoy the festive decor, and Tuesday Treats in the lobby area (we’ll let you know when to look for them as the date draws near).

Top 10 Things to Remember about EndNote
1.EndNote does not replace the style manual. It will make it easier to follow the manual, but you will still need the manual.
2.Garbage in, garbage out. So check your import results, especially when working with sources such as Google Scholar that may have inconsistent data.
3.Use one EndNote library for all of your writing. It will make your life easier in the long run.
4.Use the Edit Citation command to make changes to citations in documents. Trying to make changes on the screen risks corrupting the EndNote citations.
5.If you are using footnote styles, your word processor controls the numbering and placement of the footnote and EndNote controls the formatting. So you will first need to insert the footnote using your word processor, then insert the EndNote citation into that footnote.
6.EndNote provides five ways of importing references:
- Online search
- Direct export
- Importing text files
- Importing PDF files
Through the Capture button in EndNote Web, which can import one record at a time into either an EndNote or an End-Note Web library.The method you use will depend on which databases you need to work with. Talk to your librarian about searching online databases. They can tell you which databases you have available to you and the best way of searching them.
7.Online search uses the Z39.50 Internet protocol, a standard protocol that was developed just for searching and retrieving bibliographic data. It has limitations.
- It does not work through proxy servers.
- It does not use the same port your browser uses.
- It is not the same protocol your browser uses.
8.EndNote can be customized.
9.For collaboration, use the EndNote Web feature set in EndNote to store references online where your entire project team can access them.
10.Back up your EndNote Libraries.
Mac’s latest OS has added additional security features that favors Apple App Store purchases. We encountered this previously when installing Pharos printers in Mountain Lion. To successfully install Endnote X5 and X6 in Mountain Lion, preform the following tasks before attempting to launch Endnote for the first time.
- Go to the Mac’s Systems Preferences, usually in the Dock at the bottom of the screen (gears icon).
- Click on “Security & Privacy”
- Click on the “Lock” icon to make changes, authenticate with your computer login password.
- Change the preference “Allow applications downloaded from:” to “Anywhere”.
- Click the warning box stating that choosing “Anywhere” can make your Mac less secure. You can go back and change the setting after Endnote installs.
- Now you can click the Endnote_X# installer, drag the installer to the Apps folder and click on the Endnote X# icon to install and launch Endnote X# for the first time.
