“Is art medicine?”: October 1
Brownbag program will feature Bihl Haus Arts, the Health and Healing Consortium and Dr. Adelita Cantu of the School of Nursing 12:00 noon, Howe Conference Room, Briscoe Library On October 1, Dr. Kellen McIntyre, executive director of the Bihl Haus and Paula Davies, chair of Health and Healing Consortium will join Dr. Adelita Cantu of the School of Nursing in an exploration of the arts as vehicles of healing for health care professionals, seniors and others. The exhibit Rx Art: Take your Medicine first premiered in 2008 as a seemingly unlikely collaboration between non-profits Bihl Haus Arts and the Health and Healing Consortium, asking the question, “What could medicine and art have in common?” The exhibit featured health professionals who were also artists. Through the artists/healers’ personal statements the viewer saw firsthand how the artwork aided in self-care and healing and helped these health care professionals with their work with clients and patients. But is art medicine? The October 1 presentation will look at different healing functions that involvement in the arts offers to all populations from the medical community to our senior population and the community at large. Dr Adelita Cantu will present her finding on Arts and Aging from research done at Bihl Haus.
Raphael Guerra, Jane Appleby and Beth Engelsgjerd McMahon are three local health professionals whose work has been displayed in RxArt: Take Your Medicine.

Friends of the P.I. Nixon Medical Historical Library: Annual dinner
Observing human oddities has been a popular pastime since they were first exhibited at fairs during medieval times. The living skeleton, the giant, the dwarf, the bearded lady have always drawn crowds who wanted to look, wonder and touch. Some of the most fascinating examples of these anomalies have appeared in circus side shows. The etiologies and eventual fate of some of the more unusual human beings will be discussed on Tuesday evening, November 3rd, 6:30 – 9:00 p.m. at the Friends of the P.I. Nixon Medical Historical Library’s 39th Annual Dinner-Presentation. Guest speaker is Dr. Joyce G. Schwartz, a board certified anatomic and clinical pathologist with the South Texas Pathology Associates group, which serves the Methodist Hospital System. Dr. Schwartz received her Bachelor of Science and M.A. degrees from the University of Texas at Austin and her medical degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. She was a tenured professor at the Health Science Center before joining Quest Diagnostic Laboratories at its headquarters in New Jersey, where she served as the Vice President, Chief Laboratory Officer and Vice President for Science and Innovation. She is a recipient of the Minnie Stevens Piper Foundation “Piper Professor Award” for excellence in teaching and the Medical School “Alumnus of the Year Award,” presented by the UT Health Science Center School of Medicine. Dr. Schwartz has published over eighty articles in peer-reviewed medical and scientific publications and has had a long-standing interest in the history of medicine. The dinner and presentation will be held just off campus at the Oak Hills Country Club on Fredericksburg Road. Everyone is welcome to attend. Please contact Special Collections Librarian Pennie Borchers at (210) 567-2469 or email@example.com for more information and to reserve your place (RSVP deadline is October 29). Please join us for an evening of good food and stimulating conversation!
With NIH funding, Healthy Texas website becomes a portal for CTSA partner organizations
In 2007, the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio received funding from the National Institutes of Health’s (NIH) Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) program to develop a dynamic new way for researchers to interact with each other and the community. One way to accomplish this is through a web site that will provide information on health topics for researchers, community practitioners and the public. As a result of the NIH initiative, the Healthy Texas Web site (www.healthytexas.org), originally created at UT Health Science Center Libraries in 2005, is now taking a new direction.
We are actively pursuing collaborations with the other CTSAs in Texas in order to expand the site and make Healthy Texas a state-wide resource with information that is specific and relevant to individual communities/counties within the state.
Healthy Texas has become a collaborative project, with many partners in the South Texas region. We are actively pursuing collaborations with the other CTSAs in Texas in order to expand the site and make Healthy Texas a state-wide resource with information that is specific and relevant to individual communities/counties within the state. The site is changing and growing constantly. Check back frequently and see how the site has changed. (www.healthytexas.org). We welcome your feedback and suggestions (firstname.lastname@example.org). The CTSA partner organizations are: UT Health Science Center at San Antonio (Lead Organization), CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Children’s Hospital, San Antonio Metropolitan Health District, San Antonio Military Medical Center, South Texas Veterans Health Care System, Southwest Foundation for Biomedical Research, University Health System, other UT System Components, University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), UT School of Public Health Regional Campus in San Antonio and UT Brownsville.

Libraries collaborate with the Institute for Integration of Medicine and Science to purchase Collexis subscription
UT Health Science Center faculty members now have access to Collexis, a powerful tool for semantic searching and knowledge discovery. Collexis is an innovative tool to promote collaboration regardless of organizational affiliation. The Collexis database currently contains profiles for over 400 selected UT Health Science Center researchers. These names were generated based on current investigator funding. Profile information is compiled from federal grant information included in the CRISP database and publication information from PubMed. Profiles include grants, publications, research interests, and research collaborations, both internal and external. A limited number of additional profiles can be added by contacting the Institute for Integration of Medicine and Science (IIMS) at email@example.com; however, there may be a fee involved for the researcher or the department. The Collexis subscription has been purchased through a collaboration between IIMS and the library. A direct link to the Collexis database is available on the library’s web site or visit http://www.researchprofiles.collexis.com/uthscsa/. You can also select Collexis from the library’s list of subscribed databases. Links are included on the Healthy Texas web site (http://www.healthytexas.org/clinical_lib.jsp) and from the IIMS web site (http://iims.uthscsa.edu/collaboration.html) as well. IIMS will schedule Collexis training for researchers, so stay tuned for more information! Researchers who have questions about Collexis can contact the IIMS office at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone to (210) 562-4467.

In addition, the preconference will provide participants with an opportunity to work together in small groups to generate specific ideas for collaborating across professional lines to promote access to health information for students, their families and the broader community. The $5,000 award will cover the facility costs, speaker travel and honorarium, promotional items and CNE credit for school nurses. The proposal for getHIP 2010 was written by Julie Gaines, Technology Liaison Librarian in the Briscoe Library.
Featured Resource – October
The Inner World of Medical Students is a collection of poems written by medical students from around the world that captures the thoughts, feelings, and experiences of today’s medical scholars. This book is a thought-provoking work that identifies the positive and negative aspects of medical culture and gives valuable insight about the journey into the realm of medicine. It is an artistic analysis of medical education that paves the way for new thoughts and ideas. The Inner World of Medical Students is appropriate for a variety of audiences including but not limited to medical educators, medical students, pre-med students, residency faculty, and those responsible for establishing medical school policy and curricula. This work was compiled by Dr. Johanna Shapiro, professor in the Department of Family Medicine and Director of Medical Humanities and Arts at the University of California Irvine School of Medicine. The Inner World of Medical Students is available in the Briscoe Library at WZ 350 S529i 2009. Andrea N. Schorr Cataloging & Acquisitions Librarian
PubMed Central releases new search option for embargoed articles
Finding embargoed article citations in PubMed Central (PMC) is now as easy as 1-2-3! "Embargoed" articles comprise those which are not immediately free on publication, but only after a specified time period. With the implementation of a new PMC search option, you can easily retrieve both the citations for embargoed articles and their corresponding PMC reference numbers, known as PMCIDs. Because articles under embargo do not show up during a regular PMC search, this new feature is particularly valuable for authors and publishers who must submit PMCIDs as proof of compliance with the National Institutes of Health Public Access Policy.
Take it to the "Limits": To locate the new search option from the PMC Homepage, click on Advanced search. Next, click on the Limits tab at the top of the PMC search page Ready, Set, Search: Once you are on the Limits page, click in the field, "Show both free and embargoed articles." and enter your search and click Go. Next, take a look at the search results on the Summary display page where you can now see three tabs, "All," "Free," and "Embargoed," as well as the number of articles in each of these categories. These display features will allow you to obtain an immediate view of the number of Free vs. Embargoed articles within your initial search result. Your Number is Up!: Finally, click on the "Embargoed" tab at the top of the Results Page. You will then be able to find the PMCID at the bottom of an article citation, as well as the date on which the article itself becomes publicly available or "Free in PMC." Please note that the usual PMC links, such as "Full Text," will not appear with the citation until the article is viewable in PMC. - NLM Technical Bulletin No. 360 September– October 2009
On the PubMed Central advanced search page, limits can be set to include both free and embargoed articles.
