Have you been wondering about the four, “winged” poles near the Librarians’ offices at FMHI? They’re Internet kiosks! The kiosks are designed to provide laptop, tablet and smartphone users with easy access to electrical plugs and additional lighting for their Wi-Fi connectable devices. Ideally suited for one individual on each side, small groups also can gather around a laptop (or two) for quick discussions or group projects.
While we await the arrival of workstation-height chairs, consider using the stations to work while standing up! Recent studies suggest that getting out of your chair may help fight against chronic disease.
The most recent edition of Health Affairs is available at the FMHI Research Library.

Please join us in welcoming the FMHI Research Library’s fall semester student assistants!
Stop by, say “Hi!” to Alexis, Charniece, Erica and Eugene, and ask them a question or four. They’re ready to help you use the Library and its resources!
September is Healthy Aging Month. Check out these FMHI Library resources to learn more about the studies and processes centered on aging and the aged:
