New Website Design

In accordance with Loma Linda University Health Web Center “Look 17” website redesign, the University Libraries website is scheduled to be updated this Thursday, Nov. 16.  The new library look will match the rest of the university’s websites.  The new design is responsive to various screen sizes making tablet and mobile browsing friendlier. We have strove to maintain the same level of access to the library information resources as you are accustomed.  We look forward to serving your information needs via this new design.

New Feature for VisualDX

New Feature Categorizes Differential Results for a Faster Diagnosis

COMING NOVEMBER 1: VisualDx desktop users will see a new “tab” view of differential diagnosis results.

The six tabs at the top of the differential will categorize results for quick diagnosis: Consider 1st, Consider 2nd, Emergencies, Infectious, Drug Induced, and View All.

A color bar at the top of each diagnosis indicates the number of matching findings. For instance, in the photo below, the first two diagnosis match 6/6 findings while the highlighted diagnosis, Herpes simplex virus, matches 5/6. Hovering over a diagnosis will reveal which findings do not match.

The new display aims to help clinicians quickly identify possibilities for the most accurate diagnosis at the point of care.

This change was made thanks to our user feedback and testing. We always welcome you comments at feedback@visualdx.com.

1st Floor Renovation has Started!

At long last and after many delays, the first floor renovation of the University Library has begun.  Currently, we are in the middle of the demolition phase.  Old florescent lighting fixtures have been removed the the ceiling is starting to come down.  Information technology staff in the basement have been relocated to room 101 for the duration of the renovation.

 

 

 

 

 

When completed, by the end of this year, the first floor will contain a large student study space, group study rooms and the LLU Information Technology department will be located here giving convenient access to the LLU HelpDesk.

Here are some ideas of what the new space will possibly look like when it is completed (designs are subject to change).
