This month, RMU Library is trialing several different eResources — a nursing database, and two different eReference resources.

UpToDate
https://reddog.rmu.edu/login?url=http://www.uptodate.com/online
UpToDate synthesizes medical information into practical, evidence-based, point-of-care recommendations. Compare it with DynaMed, a similar product and current RMU Library subscription.

Statistical Abstracts Global and Statistical Abstract Historical
This trial provides online access to Statistical Abstracts of the U.S., Statistical Abstracts of the World, and digital historical access to Statistical Abstracts of the U.S. (1970-2012)

Europa World Online
https://reddog.rmu.edu/login?url=http://www.europaworld.com/advanced-search
This is the online version of the Europa World Year Book. It is a classic reference source covering world affairs, providing political and economic information for over 250 countries.

The above-listed database trial links are accessible from on campus or off campus; links to these database trials can be found on the Library’s Databases A-Z page (http://library.rmu.edu/research-assistance/databases-alphabetical).

Additional links to Statistical Abstract and Europa World Online can be found on the Databases – Social Sciences page (http://library.rmu.edu/research-assistance/databases-social-science) and Databases – General & Interdisciplinary page (http://library.rmu.edu/research-assistance/databases-general-interdisciplinary)

An additional link to UpToDate can be found on the Databases – Nursing & Health Sciences page (http://library.rmu.edu/research-assistance/databases-nursing-health-sciences)

We invite RMU students, staff, and faculty to check out these potential library subscriptions and to pass along any feedback you may wish to share (paladino@rmu.edu). Thanks!

Our front desk is sad. It’s been a year and we still don’t know what to call it. It’s where we check out books and provide research assistance. It is important! It deserves a name! Don’t let it continue to suffer this existential crisis.
Tweet us your best name suggestion @RMULIBRARY with #SadDesk by 1/30. All participants will be entered to win one of three $25 Amazon gift cards. Help make our desk happy.
Planning on requesting materials from the Library through our resource sharing services over the holiday break?
In order to increase your chances of receiving requested materials from Interlibrary Loan or EZ Borrow prior to the holiday break, please place Interlibrary Loan requests for books or articles no later than Wednesday, December 10, 2014.  Books requested through EZ BORROW should be placed electronically by Friday, December 12, 2014.
Because we rely on the varying schedules of our partner libraries for timely delivery of requested materials, receipt can not be guaranteed before the RMU library closes for the holiday break on December 19, 2014.  Normal services will resume on January 5, 2015.
Please refer any questions to Bruce Johnston, Access Services Librarian (412-397-6877)
Thanks!
