Email: New Website:http://www.biomedicallibrary.

In order to make the new site easier for our users to navigate, we have set up portals for the three colleges, for the hospitals and for the general public. Each portal directs the user to resources important for his specialization. Another new feature is the RSS feed or e-mail function for Biomedical Library news. All issues of the Biofeedback will be archived on this site. New resources in the library are also featured on the site with direct access to resources from the home page. The new web page will run concurrently with the existing web page ( library/index.html) until the summer at which time we will switch the library’s only web page to the new 2

one with a re-direct from the old URL. The web page, is of course, a constant work in progress, but we are pleased with the usability and new design elements. Please give us your feedback and suggestions. Andrea Wright, our Technology Librarian, and Justin Robertson, our Assistant Director for Public Services, did the re-design. Other IMPORTANT User News: Common copy (Trac) cards are now in operation. Recent changes to the Trac Card System benefit all users: Trac Cards (or copy cards, as some call them) will now work in University and Biomedical Libraries and the Baldwin County campus locations regardless of where the card is purchased. All print stations will accept one common card.

USA Biomedical Library’s

Medical Center Site Has Moved

- Geneva Staggs

Now called the Health Information Resource Center, the new UMC library is on the third floor in the University Medical Center hospital. Left: Library Supervisor Nancy Pugh shows UMC Supply Processing/Distribution employee Romerius Sewell some of the new library’s features.

The University of South Alabama Biomedical Library’s Medical Center site has moved onto the third floor of the hospital from their previous location in the Mastin Building. Over the last six months a space in the hospital on the third floor has been renovated into what is now being called the Health Information Resource Center. Preparing the collections for the move, usage statistics were analyzed, prudent weeding undertaken, new electronic items purchased and the collections split into two sections. The collection now available in the new Health Information Resource Center has been shaped into a ‘just in

time’ instead of a ‘just in case’ collection. The less frequently used items will be housed in a storage collection three floors down in the hospital. With the emphasis on online resources, additional computer workstations were added and wireless antennas installed in the new space. A new emphasis for this library site is consumer health information. Almost as soon as planning started on the renovation and move, hospital administration asked that a consumer/patient information service be added. To gear up for this change, the library applied for and was accepted to be one of only nine sites in the United States and Canada to help develop and test a new health information literacy curriculum focused on increasing health care provider and patient use of consumer health resources, and on promoting the role of librarians as key providers of health information literacy resources and Left: The collection housed in the new library will also include consumer health information.


Above: Online resources can be accessed via wireless and additional workstations, yet the library still hosts a physical journal and book collection with areas to sit and read.

services. The University of South Alabama Biomedical Library also hosted a graduate student internship from the University of Alabama School of Library and Information Studies to develop what has become a consumer health information kiosk located in the Health Information Resource Center.

Watch for announcements about the upcoming Open House scheduled for the new Health Information Resource Center.

Searching for scientific concepts or emerging trends? Trying to identify specific projects and/or investigators?

Try CRISP. - Judy Burham

CRISP (Computer Retrieval of Information on Scientific Projects) is a searchable database of federally funded biomedical research projects conducted at universities, hospitals, and other research institutions. The database, maintained by the Office of Extramural Research at the National Institutes of Health, includes projects funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services (SAMHSA), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP), Agency for Health Care Research and Quality (AHRQ), and Office of Assistant Secretary of Health (OASH). Users can access the CRISP interface to search for scientific concepts, emerging trends and techniques, or identify specific projects and/ or investigators. Terms can be searched as phrases or with all words having the same stem. Searches can be limited by states, institutions, award types, and activity. CRISP uses a controlled vocabulary and the thesaurus terms are linked from the search page.

The Ultimate Gift

- Kelly McCarron, Office of Medical Development

Often considered the ultimate gift, a charitable bequest is the last way to honor family, friends, an alma mater, and others who played a part in your life. Have you ever stopped to think about how all of the resources found in the USA Biomedical Library came to exist? Sure, some of the computers, periodicals and furniture were funded by the University out of necessity, but it is private gift support that truly makes a difference. Perhaps you are an alumnus/a who spent countless hours in the library cramming for mid-terms, attending a group study session or preparing for your boards, or maybe you are a parent of a current student who wants your child to have access to the latest technology. Whatever your position may be, by making a contribution to the Biomedical Library, you will enable the University to invest in the latest technology for its computer labs, purchase special collection books or add additional study rooms to meet the growing needs of our students for generations to come. A charitable gift may be made in the form of cash or securities, life insurance, gifts of real or personal property, retirement plans or through a will or living trust. For more information on how to make a gift to the USA Biomedical Library, contact the Office of Medical Development at (251) 460-7032 or Kelly McCarron at (251) 460-7276 or

How can I make a gift? Charitable bequests offer a way to provide support to the University of South Alabama in a way that might not otherwise be possible for many donors. Often considered the ultimate gift, a charitable bequest is the last way to honor family, friends, an alma mater, and others who played a part in your life. It is also one of the easiest ways to remember the Biomedical Library. A charitable bequest enables you to control your assets during your lifetime while allowing you to make a gift to USA at your death. You will be entitled to an estate tax deduction for the fair market value of the assets bequeathed to USA. To ensure compliance with your wishes, help obtain matching funds and receive important recognition, it is important to document your estate commitment with the Development Office at the University of South Alabama. You can do this by filling out a bequest society form or sending us a copy of your will. Here is a sample wording of a bequest for the University of South Alabama:

I give and devise to the University of South Alabama, located in Mobile, Alabama, my entire residuary estate (or ____ percent of my residuary estate, or ______ dollars, or a specific item) for the Biomedical Library. A bequest gift of $20,000 or more may be designated to create an endowment fund in memory of a loved one or in your own name. The annual spendable income from the endowed fund, as defined by University of South Alabama policy, provides perpetual recognition for the person(s). The annual spendable income can be used to fund purchases of Biomedical Library resources and/or scholarships, to fund research, or in any other way you choose. Charitable bequests can be made with cash, securities, real estate or other property. Remember, a charitable bequest is your last opportunity to do something meaningful for an institution that did so much for you and your family. Please contact Travis Grantham at (251)461-1775 or e-mail to learn more about this and other types of estate gifts.

Library Staff Recognized


Biomedical Library librarians accompanied Library Director and Southern Chapter/MLA Chairperson Judy Burnham to Birmingham, Alabama for the Annual Meeting this past October. Several BL librarians presented:Outreach Librarian Beverly Rossini presented a paper “Take Charge! Information Resources for Consumer Health Education” and a poster with Assistant Director for Hospital Services Geneva Staggs, “Health Information Literacy Project” detailing their participation as a pilot site with the MLA’s Health Information Literacy Project. Technology and Information Services Librarian Andrea Wright presented a poster “Using Google Analytics to Build a Better Library Website” which she coauthored with USA Biomedical Library’s Assistant Director for Public Services Justin Robertson. SC/MLA Chair, USA Biomedical Library Director and Department of Physical Therapy Liaison Judy Burnham presented a poster “Mapping the Core Journals of Physical Therapy Literature” which she co-authored with Dennis W. Fell MD PT, Chair, Department of Physical Therapy, University of South Alabama and PT students at the University of South Alabama. The University of South Alabama Biomedical Library will host the National Library of Medicine traveling exhibit Frankenstein: Penetrating the Secrets of Nature from April 27, 2009 until June 21, 2009. A thoughtprovoking exhibit that explores some of the fundamental questions of all time, the Library hopes to use the exhibit as an opportunity to recognize some social, ethical, and philosophical concerns raised by such scientific endeavors as cloning, xenografting, the Human Genome Project, and other new developments in biomedicine. Please watch for further details about this exhibit as they develop, or call the Library at 460-6893 for more information.

for their years of service at USA Employee Service Recognition program on September 16th. Hired at the University Library as a Library Assistant III in 1993 and later transferred to the Biomedical Library where she worked her way up to Supervisor, Belinda G. DiSario, Library Supervisor at Children’s & Women’s Library was recognized for 15 years of service as of Feb 1, 2008. She has been at the Children’s & Women’s Hospital Library since March, 2005. Belinda G. DeSario “I can’t pinpoint any one ‘favorite’ job, other than just the way you feel when you know you have helped someone learn something new. Otherwise why work in a library?” says Belinda. Knowing she can make a difference and seeing that look on patrons’ faces when they better understand how to use a new database or when they find information they didn’t know before is still something that makes her job at the Biomedical Library worthwhile on a daily basis. Bonita (Bonnie) Seibert, Secretary V, at the University of South Alabama Baugh Biomedical Library was recognized for twenty years of service to the University. Hired as a Secretary IV, she was promoted to Secretary V in 2003. Dedicated to making the faculty and staff reimbursements easier for them, Bonnie has found travel reimbursement to be a difficult but constant part of her job. She says, “When it comes to their money, it’s important to avoid a delay in reimbursements. It is a great challenge!” Bonnie brings her personal values to work each day: “God had given me a job to perform and I aimed to please Him in all Bonnie Seibert things! I lov all my colleagues and friends at the University. Helping each other makes all our jobs much easier.” Evelyn Reed, Supervisor for Document Delivery Department in Interlibrary Loan Department, was recognized for more than 30 years of service to the University of South Alabama libraries. Through the years Evelyn has worked with many aspects of library work: Government Documents, Cataloging, Circulation, and finally in Document Delivery. When working in the Circulation Department, Evelyn often had the chance to meet and greet the people she had talked to on the phone about their different requests. Now, in Interlibrary Loan, she continues to provide excellent information services to the faculty, staff and students, and to people in the community. Talking to them to clarify their information needs, Evelyn says the most enjoyable part of her job is “hearing them say how much they appreciate our help.” After thirty years Evelyn still finds a challenge in searching library catalogs all over the world to look up interesting requests. When Evelyn Reed President Moulton shook her hand this past September and told her he appreciated her dedication and service, he was speaking for many – Evelyn’s reach has been far and wide as a valued library employee over the years. 11

SOUTHmed Update A recent report by the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR), titled “No Brief Candle: Reconceiving Research Libraries for the 21st Century,” is a series of thoughtful essays each echoing the theme that a great transformation is under way in the world of libraries. The report speculates about the future of the physical aspects of the library (Will the library of the future be a building or a vast network of shared information?), its collections (Will collections be catalogued? Will a library’s collection be accessible to the public?), its funding (Where will support for local libraries come from?) and its gatekeepers and guides (What new skills, responsibilities, and resources define the librarians’ competencies?). One essay in particular, “Leveraging Digital Technologies in Service to Culture and Society: The Role of Libraries as Collaborators” by Lee L. Zia struck a chord regarding the services we aim to provide to our SOUTHMed members. Zia says that chief among the libraries’ challenges are evaluating the impact of increased access to “resources and data that digital libraries make possible,” and “assessing the value of such activities to develop an increased understanding and satisfaction of end-user needs.” In other words, what are we doing right for our SOUTHMed members? That is our challenge. A survey included with your contract renewals last fall will help us in our assessment. Please take the time to complete and return the survey and provide us with your valuable feedback. In medicine, if access to information isn’t easy, reliable, and quick, people can’t or won’t use it. We want you to use our services. Access to information is where librarians excel. One of the librarian’s most essential roles lies in the commitment to providing credible information: that commitment is the heart of our SOUTHMed mission.
