This year’s theme for National Library Week is “Ready, Set, Library!” This theme showcases how libraries promote connection and how we as librarians meet our users where they are. Where are HSLIC users? Where are you researching, studying, and making those connections? Meeting you where you are is especially import to us at HSLIC.

We listen to our users and do our best to acquire the resources that you request. For example, JoVE was requested by the Neurosciences Department. We listened and recently subscribed. JoVE is a unique resource that offers video based scientific content on subjects like behavior, biochemistry, cancer research, genetics, and, of course, neurosciences. You can take a look here: 


Offers video based scientific content including video journal articles on research including subjects like behavior, biochemistry, cancer research, genetics, neuroscience and in education including subjects like biology, chemistry, statistics, environmental sciences, and clinical skills. In addition to requests, we also analyze use and turnaway data to determine which resources that members of the Health Sciences Center are interested in. Based on this data, we recently subscribed to AccessAnesthesiology and the F.A. Davis PT Collection. You can view these resources by clicking the links below:

Designed for students and experienced anesthesiologists and integrates authoritative texts with interactive tools, providing a wide range of materials including leading textbooks, procedural videos, an integrated drug database, and practice guidelines. 


Provides access to information specifically for physical therapy students and professionals, including leading physical therapy textbooks, procedure and exercise videos, NPTE review materials, and case studies. If you have a request that you would like to make, please fill out the Request a Library Purchase Form and we will investigate.

We know that not everyone looks for information in the same way or in the same places, so we try to make resources accessible in different ways to hopefully find you where you're doing research:

  1. HSLIC’s Discovery Catalog
  2. PubMed
  3. Databases & eResources page
  4. Wikipedia & Publisher websites (download the Nomad browser extension)
