EAT@Briscoe: Educational • Applicable • Technology

On September 23rd, the Briscoe Library launched its ongoing series EAT@Briscoe with a TinkerCad demonstration. The series focuses on educational technology applicable to the health sciences and takes place during the noon hour. Upcoming events will focus on tools like EndNote Web and EverNote that make sharing research easier.

TinkerCad is an introductory tool for lay designers to get started creating 3D objects. It serves as an excellent entry point to 3D design because it is browser based, uses drag-and-drop building, and offers a full menu of pre-made shapes to use for building. In addition, TinkerCad allows users to prepare their objects for 3D printing, which is also available at the Briscoe Library.

Be on the lookout for upcoming events. Join us in the Howe Room, and bring your lunch!

How to request library classes for your department or office

The Libraries offer regularly scheduled classes covering PubMed, Ovid Medline, CINAHL, EndNote, RefWorks, and Google Scholar.  Librarians also present classes for students during their academic courses.  For many faculty and staff, attending scheduled classes is difficult due to clinical and academic schedules.

To meet the needs of faculty and staff, the librarians will schedule special classes by request.  If your department or office would like to request a special training session on library resources, either at your office or in the library, please contact Katie Prentice, Head of Education and Information Services, at 210-567-6606 or email prenticek@uthscsa.edu for more information.

In addition to classes, direct assistance from librarians is available Monday-Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm and Saturdays from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.  When you need help finding articles or using library tools, come by the library or contact Library Information at askalibrarian@uthscsa.edu or 210-567-2450.  For more in-depth help, individual research consultation appointments with a librarian can also be requested in advance.
