Construction Update: Work has begun in certain areas throughout the Library

Renovations in the Dana Medical Library will continue for the next several weeks. Here are some key projects to be aware of when using the library:

Workers have begun work on the new group study room in the back south end of the library. Expect construction activity and noise in this area.

Painting will begin in main areas of the library starting soon. Please pay attention to signs as this work begins.

Carpeting will begin shortly as well. Areas of the library will be blocked off as the carpeting is replaced. Make sure to pay attention to signs as the flow of traffic in and around the library will change depending on where the carpeting is being replaced.

Workers have blocked off the area that was once the Medical History Room. When this area is completed, the hallway will extend further and will accommodate additional seating for studying. Dana’s Administrative offices will gain a front door at the end of the hall.

Work has also begun in the room that was previously known as the Medical Student Quiet Study room. This area will be split into two rooms: one being an office for a librarian and the other being the new Medical History room.

Workers to Begin Installation of New Carpeting in Dana

Starting on Wednesday, March 22, workers will be installing new carpeting at the south end of the library. This is the study area that is closest to the bathrooms. We will keep you updated as we learn more about accessibility to this area. We apologize for the inconvenience!

For questions or concerns about the current renovations in the library, please contact Library Director Marianne Burke at 656-3483.

Winnicott, Lacan, and the Treatment of Homeless Adults
*The Afternoon Workshop is open to Clinicians and Mental Health Professionals only. Attendance and clinical affiliation will be taken at the door.

Lecture and Workshop Descriptions:
Morning Lecture: Insight For All: Psychotherapy With Homeless Adults and Children Therapies derived from psychoanalysis are typically assumed to be elitist and irrelevant to the poor and socially marginalized. This presentation will suggest that a desire for self-reflection and the capacity to form a therapeutic alliance are not limited to people of means. A program in Philadelphia called Insight For All (IFA) which connects analysts willing to work pro bono with homeless and formerly homeless adults and children will be described, as well as programs in other cities that have emulated its mission. While IFA does not have research tools or results available, anecdotal evidence after 12 years seems promising.

Learning Objectives: PARTICIPANTS WILL BE ABLE TO: 1) Describe the challenges of working in an insight-oriented way with homeless and formerly homeless persons living in residence. 2) Identify two important features of a viable psychotherapy program for the homeless.
3) Summarize the important historical precedent of Freud’s free clinics in 1920s Europe.

Afternoon Workshop: Winnicott, Lacan, and the Treatment of Homeless Adults The program will begin with a 20-minute video about homelessness in Philadelphia. The presenter will describe Insight for All–her group of volunteer psychoanalysts who have been treating homeless patients for over a decade. Key concepts from the work of Donald Winnicott (the holding environment, impingement, fear of breakdown) and of Jacques Lacan (the three registers, the importance of names, and the jouissance of the symptom) which have proven useful in this work, will be outlined. Short case examples will be offered, followed by a discussion of Heinz Kohut’s idea that the goal of all psychotherapy should be achieving a sense of being at home.

Learning Objectives: PARTICIPANTS WILL BE ABLE TO: 1) Define two key ideas of Winnicott’s in terms of their relevance to caring for homeless patients. 2) Define one Lacanian concept and its relevance to homelessness. 3) Discuss Heinz Kohut’s idea that the goal of all psychotherapy should be the construction of a sense of home.

About Our Speaker:
Dr. Deborah Anna Luepnitz is a faculty member in the Institute for Relational Psychoanalysis of Philadelphia and a Clinical Associate in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. She is author of two books: The Family Interpreted: Psychoanalysis, Feminism and Family Therapy (1988) and Schopenhauer’s Porcupines (2002).

UVM Libraries Celebrate Fair Use Week! February 20th – 24th

What is Fair Use/Fair Dealing Week?

Fair Use/Fair Dealing Week is an annual celebration of the important doctrines of fair use in the United States and fair dealing in Canada and other jurisdictions. Under these terms, copyrighted materials are allowed use without permission from the copyright holder under certain circumstances. Fair use is one of the traditional safety valves intended to balance the interests of copyright holders with the public interest in the wider distribution and use of creative works by allowing certain limited uses that might otherwise be considered infringement.

While students, faculty, librarians, journalists, and all users of copyrighted material employ fair use and fair dealing on a daily basis, Fair Use/Fair Dealing Week celebrates this important right.

How do you determine fair use in your research or education?

To determine if a use is “fair use”, there are typically four factors used to evaluate the work in question. Read more, and find more information, about these four factors at the University of Texas Libraries website page on Fair Use. Here is an infographic that points out Myths and Facts about Fair Use.

Contact Jeanene Light at 656-0521 with questions about Fair Use Week at UVM.

The New Year Brings New Electronic Resources to Dana

Happy New Year from Dana Medical Library! Hopefully you all had an enjoyable holiday and are ready to tackle the new year. The library has a couple of belated presents for you in the form of two new electronic resources.

LWW Health Library
LWW Health Library includes materials in a wide variety of formats including ebooks, videos, cases, self-assessments and more. Some of the key titles included are Grant’s Atlas of Anatomy and Bates’ Guide to Physical Examination and History Taking. You can find this collection by going to the library home page: click on Articles and Databases, scroll to E-Books and E-Texts section, and click on LWW Health Library. Off-campus access is available by logging in with your UVM NetID and Password.

BrowZine is a program that allows you to browse, read, and monitor journals that are available from Dana Medical Library. You can also create bookshelves for fast and easy access to key titles.
The easiest way to use BrowZine is to get the app on your mobile device and use it on the go. Follow the instructions on how install or email Gary Atwood at gatwood@uvm.edu for a printed copy. There is also a web browser version of BrowZine.

New/Updated E-books
We now have a number of new e-books and a handful of titles that have been recently updated. The complete list is now available. Also, search for titles directly by using the CatQuest search box in the upper right hand side of the library homepage.

If you have problems locating or accessing an e-book, please contact Gary Atwood for assistance.

Document Delivery: Your Go-To Resource for Article and Book Chapter Retrieval

Now that the print journals and most books have moved off site, it can be a challenge to locate the journal article or chapter that you need. The Dana staff are available to find it for you and send it to you. On weekdays, our Document Delivery office will usually have what you need within 24 hours of your request. Click Document Delivery under ‘Services’ on the website to start your request.

How to get started
Requests are made by filling out the online form, sending an email, phoning (802) 656-4382 or sending a fax to (802) 656-0762. Normal turnaround time is 24 hours. Large requests, inaccurate or incomplete citations may result in the request taking longer. Rush delivery is available with time permitting. Articles may be delivered to you via e-mail, campus mail, fax, or you can ask to be notified to pick them up in print at the library.

Document Delivery Specifics
Document Delivery (Electronic Article Delivery) is a service that locates, scans and emails articles and book chapters from Dana Medical Library’s book and journal collections, both print and electronic.

If you need a chapter from a print textbook that is currently located in off-site storage (e.i. at the LRA or Williston Annex, as indicated in our catalog), you don’t have to wait for the book to be sent here so that you can photocopy/scan the chapter you want. Let us do the work for you! Simply fill out the online Document Delivery request form, and we’ll make sure you get a PDF of the chapter(s) you need sent directly to your email.

Document Delivery is free to UVM health, biomedical, and medical students, and to University of Vermont Medical Center Residents and Fellows for articles requested from our print and electronic collections.

Dana’s Document Delivery department charges $5.00 per article/chapter requested from our electronic collection to UVM faculty and staff, and to University of Vermont Medical Center employees. This fee is waived for 5 requests per month. For requests of more than 5 articles per month, Dana will charge for ALL articles requested in that month.

Who can request Document Delivery? Anyone affiliated with UVM or the University of Vermont Medical Center can use Document Delivery. Others can contact us for specifics. Contact us with any questions or suggestions at 656-4382.

Hear what our patrons are saying about Document Delivery:
“The DD/ILL does an excellent job sleuthing hard-to-find documents, with a short turnaround time. My expectations are high … DD/ILL meets my research needs”
– John McPartland, Family Medicine

“I have been involved in several intensive research projects that require obtaining a large number of articles from the peer reviewed literature. Those that I can’t obtain myself through membership organizations … I request through the Dana Document Delivery/Interlibrary Loan Department. They offer a very rapid turn around and have yet to not fill one of my many requests – even for articles in very obscure journals! I could not do my work adequately without their help.”
– John Searles, Vermont Department of Health, Health Research Affiliate

Dana’s E-book Collection Has Grown!

The Dana Medical Library has been purchasing e-books for several years, both in collections such as Access Medicine, Clinical Key, and Ovid, and individually. Many titles have unlimited simultaneous users, while a few have single-user licenses.  All e-books are found in CatQuest by conducting a search by title. As shown with the following graph, Dana’s e-book collection has increased dramatically in the last few years due to these purchases:

E-books have the advantage of being available 24X7, take up no space in the library, and many have features like downloading to personal tablets and phones. In the last twelve months, over 40, 000 total “views” were logged in various e-books! The following table shows Dana’s top 15 most-accessed e-books:

UVM Libraries’ CATQuest: Your Print and Electronic Resources Discovery Tool

The library catalog CATQuest makes it easy to find resources while Dana’s book collection is off-site. Whether you are looking for a print book, a chapter from a book, an e-book, or a journal article, CATQuest is the first step to getting what you need.

For books and journals that are stored off-site, we retrieve, scan and send copies of articles and book chapters from our print collection. If you need the entire book, request it through CATQuest and pick it up at the library. Look for the “Request from Annex” button in CATQuest. Over 6,000 print books were checked out from Dana in 2015-2016.

There are over 2,000 electronic books in medical, nursing, and heath professional topics in the CATQuest database. UVM students, staff and faculty and UVM Medical Center employees can access the online collections from anywhere, anytime, no need to request.

Even though there are no book shelves in the library, you can still browse! CATQuest has a special feature that allows you to browse electronically. Click on the ‘Virtual Browse’ tab, when searching the Library Catalog in CATQuest, to see other titles in the same call number range.

Where to look for “Virtual Browse”: Go to the Dana Webpage, click on CATQuest in the top toolbar, type in your subject heading and click on “Virtual Browse”.
