Calderís New Electronic Information Commons

During January, 33 additional high-speed, Web-ready, publicly accessible computers were installed on the new furniture throughout the Library's first floor. The 600 MHz, Pentium III computers, running Windows 2000 are connected via a new NT server to the 100 Mbps fiberoptic wiring recently installed throughout the building. To save space and support access to both digital- and print-based information, slim monitors were acquired for 25 of the 33 computers. A total of 43 state-of-the-art computers are now available on the first floor to students, faculty, and staff during the 102.5 hours each week the Library is open. The new furniture and computers have seen a renaissance in the use of the first floor by all patrons.

Netscape, Explorer, Adobe Acrobat, and Power Point are available on all computers to support rapid point and click access to the thousands of readily accessible full text journals, bibliographic databases, instructional resources, and other evidence based information sources in the health sciences in HTML and PDF formats. Additional software will be installed on selected computers as needed. Two high-speed networked printers will soon be available to support rapid printing of Web-based resources by affiliated users using the Library's existing copicards. All computers are in close proximity to the reference/ education desk, the classroom/ office of the coordinator for health informatics, and the new technical support desk where a member of the Library's systems department is available Monday- Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Health and Wellness Resource Center

Health and Wellness Resource Center from the Gale Group at www.galenet.com/servlet/HWRC/ is the successor to Health Reference Center-Academic, a popular database on consumer health and allied health information from Information Access Company which Calder has made available University-wide since 1997. The 400 health and medical journals and newsletters, 75% of which have the full text articles; the citations from more than 2,200 general interest magazines; and the more than 300 patient information pamphlets in the original version continue to be available in Health and Wellness Resource Center. In addition, the new version has:

  • A Medical Encyclopedia - Gale's Encyclopedia of Medicine
  • Drug Finders - US Pharmacopoeia (USP) and PDR Family Guide to Natural Medicines & Healing Therapies
  • Organization Directory - Gale's Medical and Health Information Directory
  • Medical Dictionary - Mosby's Medical, Nursing, & Allied Health Dictionary
  • Links to Other Sites
  • Health News - sections of selected newspapers and links to clinical trials
  • Alternative Health Encyclopedia - Gale's Encyclopedia of Alternative Medicine

Health and Wellness Resource Center also has an enhanced search engine which:

  • Separates search results by source type, such as magazine, pamphlet, etc.
  • Provides related searches, subdivisions, and "see also" topics
  • Has links to let you quickly navigate full text articles

New Web of Science Proceedings

There is now desktop access to the many papers published in proceedings of conferences that are not always indexed in other databases. Web of Science Proceedings at wosproceedings.com is the new electronic version from the Institute for Scientific Information of Index to Scientific and Technical Proceedings and Index to Social Sciences and Humanities Proceedings. Supported by the UM Libraries, Web of Science Proceedings is retroactive to 1990, has links to the full bibliographic record, when available, in Web of Science, and replaces the 2001 subscription to the print version.

Ovid Databases - New Remote Access/End of Local Access

ACCESS - The databases below are now accessible directly from the powerful servers at Ovid Technologies, Inc. in Utah in one of two ways. Go to Calder's web page at calder.med.miami.edu, click on the MEDLINE, Current Contens, etc. link, and then on:

  • I.P. (Internet Protocol) - for generic access from within the School of Medicine and Jackson Memorial Hospital domains - Passwords are no longer necessary, or
  • Password - for customized access and for access from outside the School's I.P. domain - Enter your existing User ID and Password at the prompts. If you save search strategies, use the SDI feature of Current Contents and other Ovid databases, or use other customized features, you must select this access option

DATABASES and SEARCHES - Please note the following database/search changes:

  • MEDLINE database is now updated weekly, and PREMEDLINE is available
  • BIOETHICSLINE is available, but, like AIDSLINE, it was closed in 2000
  • The Journals@Ovid Full Text file is only available temporarily. Planning continues to provide links from citations to the corresponding full text articles in the many e-journals on Calder's Web page or via the online public access catalog (opac) callcat.med.miami.edu
  • WebLink enables access to the corresponding record in the opac, if available
  • Up to five databases can now be searched simultaneously

For technical assistance or to acquire or renew your free MEDLINE password, please call the Systems Department at 305-243-5530. Although the Library's local Ovid server will continue to be available for the next several months, it will cease to be available in June 2001.
