Anatomy & Physiology: Heart Research

By - Research & Instruction Librarian January 20th, 2015

Dear Anatomy & Physiology,




More content has been updated to your research guide for 2015.


What’s new?

  • Springer’s  eCollection (for even more scholarly content).
  • Image Quest (for medical heart images to embed [& cite!] within your project)
  • A new trial: Science in Context (to see if you like it.  Contains background info, news and scholarly journal articles all in one interface).


Questions? Research conundrums?  Please be in touch!  Ms. Sanborn

Boss Research

By - Research & Instruction Librarian January 16th, 2014

While pulling last term’s database raw search stats, this happily astonishing graphic jumped out at me:


What is this?

Well, this chart indicates that our collective suite of Ebsco periodical products, was searched 3,285 times during the month of November 2013.

Why is this unusual?

In Nov. 2012, this product was searched 524 times.

In Nov. 2011, this product was searched 357 times.

Who did this boss research?

Human Physiology students, of course!  Researching diligently on the Microscopic and Cellular Level Impact research project.  Way to research!  🙂


Human Physiology: Research Guide

Dear Hum. Phys.,

It was great to meet with you today!  As the key to the assignment is writing a literature review, I wanted to mention again the Academic/Scholarly Journal tab in the research guide.  The digitized library journal collections included in this page of the guide are those that best match the subject of this research assignment.
