Web of Science Cancellation

The UT Health Science Center Library is discontinuing Web of Science after the current subscription expires.  Due to a combination of funding limitations and duplication of content we could not justify the renewal.  Effective January 1, 2014, we will no longer have access to Web of Science.

Scopus is a database that provides similar information to Web of Science.  Please contact the library at (210)567-2450 or askalibrarian@uthscsa.edu if you need assistance with making the switch from Web of Scienc to Scopus.  Librarians are available for consultations or to provide group instruction to help ease the transition.  Any departmental or committee material that references Web of Science should be updated to Scopus.

Did you know? Library printers

This installment of the “Did you know?” series highlights the workhorse printers at the Briscoe Library.

Retiring HP Printer

The Briscoe Library has had HP printers for black and white printing since 2006.  These printers were retired from service mid-October after many print jobs.  Over the lifetime of these printers, they printed a combined 3,072,553 pages.  Over the years, students, faculty, staff, and library visitors have all printed to these machines.  They were finally retired because replacement parts and repair were too costly.

New library printers and copiers for the Briscoe Library have been installed!  The new equipment prints, copies, and scans!  Come by and check them out.

Questions about printing and copying in the Briscoe Library?  Visit Library Circulation or contact us for more information.

New Outside the Briscoe Library – Raccoon Prevention

The curbside space outside the Briscoe Library is sporting two new fixtures. The former open trash can has been replaced with an animal-proof trash receptacle. Although no bears have DSC_6281been sighted, a family of raccoons finds the trash around campus quite tasty. In addition, the book drop that has seen many years of service in front of the library has been replaced with a shiny, teal colored refurbished book drop. Thank you to Facilities Management for the new trash receptacle and for their work in keeping the campus Green by helping the library to Reuse the book drop formerly located in the School of Nursing.
