Collexis Research Profile for UC Davis

July 29th, 2010 by Bruce Abbott

The Collexis Research Profiles for UC Davis are available at http://www.researchprofiles.collexis.com/ucDavis/. Note that the current data in Collexis is for a select group of faculty in the UC Davis School of Medicine.

The following description is from the Collexis product announcement:

Expert Profiler: helps institutions better expose their research history and capabilities by aggregating the ‘conceptual fingerprints’ of existing published papers. By using historic publishing and citation data to expose unique relationships among people and institutions, Expert Profiler provides senior decision makers with transparency while researchers can use it to identify others with whom to collaborate.”

The Rule of 18.2: Review Books for Medical Students

March 6th, 2010 by Rebecca Davis

Looking for review books? You can find review books in the library for any medical specialty by following the “Rule of 18.2″.  The 18.2 section in any specialty includes the review materials for that specialty. For example, the Case Files Pediatrics, Blueprints Pediatrics and PreTest Pediatrics books will all be found at WS18.2. Those for Surgery will be found at WO18.2; Psychiatry at WM18.2; etc.  Next time you visit the library, go to the 18.2 section for any specialty. For example:

Example of books shelved in 18.2 section

 

  • Physiology QT18.2
  • Biochemistry QU18.2
  • Pharmacology QV18.2
  • Micro.& Immuno. QW18.2
  • General Medicine W18.2
  • Internal Medicine WB18.2
  • Musculoskeletal System WE18.2
  • Cardiovascular System WG18.2

For UCDHS: use VPN (not Citrix) to access licensed journals & resources from off campus

November 20th, 2009 by Bernadette Swanson

VPN: login from off campus

For off campus access to the Library’s licensed online journals & articles, use the web-based VPN (Virtual Private Network).
To login through the VPN, just look for the blue button located in various locations from the Library website or login directly from the VPN login page: http://vpn.lib.ucdavis.edu 

Note: From the UCDHS Citrix client, you will NOT be able to access all of the Health Sciences Libraries’ licensed resources.  Using the VPN will give you access to the resources that are not available via the Citrix client login.

What if I am already logged in through my Citrix Account?
If you are already logged in through the Citrix client, just open up another web browser and login to the VPN with your UCD Login ID and Kerberos password. 
.

Getting what you need 24/7
Once logged into the VPN, you will have full access to all of the resources, including 100 plus health sciences related databases, over 43,500 electronic journals, full text articles where available and  electronic books (accessible via the website, the Clinical Resources Center or one of the library catalogs: UC Davis Harvest Catalog or Next-Generation Melvyl).

.
Exploring the Literature Beyond the Health Sciences Disciplines at UC Davis
There are actually around  517 electronic databases covering the disciplines at UC Davis.  Select a database and search the literature or use one of the Subject Guides to focus on databases for a specific subject area.

Checking your UCD Login ID or Kerberos Password
If you do not know whether you have a UCD login and Kerberos password, or if you have forgotten your password, you can request an account or test your password at UC Davis Computing Account Services.
