Best in State: San Antonio Annual Texas Health Literacy Conference

 

It is estimated that only 12% of American adults are considered proficient in the health literacy skills they need to effectively navigate and use our health care system. The Texas Health Literacy Conference, held annually in San Antonio for the past 13 years, is recognized as the top health literacy conference in the state. The conference is sponsored by the Bexar County Health Collaborative and the San Antonio Health Literacy Initiative, SAHLI.

The UT Health Briscoe Library supports the conference each year by demonstrating and promoting health literacy resources available from the National Library of Medicine (NLM). In addition, this year librarian Karen Barton (shown below) presented a poster on her National Network of Libraries of Medicine Award entitled The Youth Health Literacy Challenge: A Partnership between UT Health San Antonio Libraries, North East ISD, and the San Antonio Public Library. For the project award, Karen designed a calendar that elementary through high school-aged students can use to learn how to access nutritional resources and reliable health information from the NLM while working through fun and interactive exercises. She also presented on this project at the IIMS Community Engagement Symposium.

 

Briscoe Library to Partner with SAPL on NPR Campus Community Book Club

DoNoHarm

NPRBookClubLogo

The UT Health Science Center Briscoe Library and the San Antonio Public Library Forest Hills Branch are joining forces to start a new NPR (National Public Radio) Book Club as a community engagement project. There are many community issues that can benefit from engagement utilizing a book club as a platform for interaction and conversation. The club will meet once a month from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. at either the Briscoe Library (room 4.074, the Collaboratory) or at the Forest Hills Library (5245 Ingram Rd). An NPR reviewed book will be featured at each meeting.

Do No Harm by Henry Marsh has been selected for the first meeting on September 17th, 6 -7 p.m., held at the Briscoe Library.

Do No Harm provides unforgettable insight into the countless human dramas that take place in a busy modern hospital.  Above all, it is a lesson in the need for hope when faced with life’s most difficult decisions.

A few copies are available at the Briscoe Library on a first come, first served basis. Other copies are available through the San Antonio Public Library. Contact Peg Seger for more details at (210) 567-6398 or segerp@uthscsa.edu.

Those interested in taking part in this project can stop by either library to pick up a bookmark with dates, times, and location information.

 

Browzine at UT Health San Antonio

 

Devices-Mobile-with-BrowZine-Web

 

The old way of finding health information is becoming obsolete, and with information distribution changing, the library is changing. Briscoe Library has made the decision to remove print journals, transferring many to a joint library facility, and has adopted BrowZine.

BrowZine is a service for libraries that allows you to browse, read, and monitor scholarly journals on the web or on a mobile device. It combines the discovery you loved with print journals with the convenience of technology.

With BrowZine you can:

  • Easily browse thousands of scholarly journals
  • Create a personalized bookshelf of your favorite titles
  • Be alerted when new articles are available in your favorite journals
  • Save articles for offline reading

Find out how to access and use BrowZine here and look out for the Reading Lists feature coming later this year.

Coming Later This Fall: New Library Furniture and Space Arrangements

Thanks to an award from the Student Fee Fund, the Library will be developing new small scale furniture arrangements and installing other new furniture options later this Fall as part of a pilot space design project. Three spaces will be developed to enhance areas for student individual study, group study, and relaxation.

Individual study chairs or pods will be installed on the 3rd and 4th floors. The relaxation area will be located on the 5th floor adjacent to a new collaboration study area comprised of two counter-height tables, stools, and whiteboards. Feedback from students will guide the library on expanding furniture and space design options in the future.

Stay tuned for updates. See below for illustrations.

3rd Floor – Front corner window area – 2 pods for individual study

4th Floor – Columns adjacent to the front window area – 6 pods for individual study

5th Floor – Relaxation spaces and group study collaboration tables

Coming to the Library: Before I Die Interactive Art Wall, May 8 – 16

Candy Chang is an artist who has made an international impact with her reflective, public art projects.  She is probably most famous for her Before I Die walls which have been featured in major cities all over the world.  While the architecture of each wall is slightly different the concept is simple: a wall of wood, paper, or concrete is painted black and then stenciled with the prompt “before I die I want to…”. 

In conjunction with the community viewing of the FRONTLINE special on Atul Gwande’s Being Mortal on Tuesday May 16 in the Pestana Lecture Hall,  a Before I Die wall will be placed on display in the library to stir UT Health San Antonio and the broader community to participate in an open discussion on the meaning of life.

The library wall will consist of black butcher paper on large poster board displays.  The paper will have the prompt “before I die I want to…” in white. Visitors to the library wall will be encouraged to use provided chalk to publicly engage in the contemplation of life and death.

For more information about the “Before I Die” project and photos of these walls from around the world, please visit: http://candychang.com/work/before-i-die-in-nola/
