With classes back in session, the Ernst Mayr Library is now open from 9 am - 6 pm Monday-Friday. Other hours can be arranged, and I'm available to come to your office or lab. I also deliver and pick up books! Please feel free to contact me at any time.
The Web of Knowledge, which includes the Web of Science and MEDLINE among other databases, has changed its interface. They have made it much simpler, which unfortunately means that some of the tools that used to be right up front may be less obvious. If you would like a quick (15 minutes) run of the changes, please just ask; I'm happy to come to you. I'll soon have a revised webguide on using it.
Still on display in the three exhibit cases in the lobby of the Northwest Building near the Oxford Street entrance: Biological Time. It looks at molecular clocks, embryology and development, circadian rhythms, and more, Among the featured research is work by members of the O'Shea and Mango Labs. There is also a TImeline of Life on Earth.
There is a web guide created in connection with the current exhibit: http://guides.library.harvard.edu/Time. . If you have any ideas and suggestions for either the exhibit or the webguide (or ideas for future exhibits), please let me know!
The Graduate School of Arts & Sciences (GSAS) dissertations are now available in DASH, Harvard's central, open-access repository of research that includes journal articles as well. Since GSAS moved from paper to electronic submissions, inclusion in DASH was the logical next step. Metadata are also being added to the HOLLIS entries to make the dissertations more findable and accessible. (However, we would still love a physical copy of your dissertation to put it on display in the cabinets in the Biolabs hallway!)
