Florida Library Snapshot Day is November 2nd

Posted in Events by Diane Fulkerson | No Comments »

What’s a day like in an academic library? Once again, the USF Poly Library will participate in the Florida Library Snapshot Day on Wednesday, November 2nd. Libraries of all types throughout the state will tell their stories and make their incredible value known through pictures and stories.

On that day, we will take pictures of all the activity taking place in the Poly Library. We’ll have two open door seminars on database searching (one at 12PM and one at 4PM, in LTB 2153). We’ll also have the visit of Echo, the famous (and gentle) therapy dog. You’ll be invited to leave comments and stories on how the library assists you.

Florida Library Snapshot Day is organized by the Florida Library Association. You can read about last year’s results. We hope to see you on November 2nd.

Save the date! Wednesday January 26th will be Snapshot Day at the Poly Library. We will take pictures and gather comments from our users.

Part of a state-wide event, this a way to show a “day in the life” of Florida libraries.

Posted in Databases, Trials by Diane Fulkerson | No Comments »

The USF Libraries are currently offering two databases on trial. Both databases are of particular interest to USF Polytechnic. I will be happy to receive your comments.

SpringerImages is a growing collection of scientific images that spans the scientific, technical and medical fields, including high-quality clinical images from images.MD. The continually updated collection – currently over 1.5 million images – gathers photos, graphs, histograms, figures, and tables, and is available via a searchable online database. The SpringerImages interface enables users to search more broadly and more accurately, through captions, keywords, context and more, and then link from the image to the source article. Users can create personalized image sets, and can export images for use in presentations or lectures.


SpringerMaterials: The Landolt-Börnstein Database is based on the Landolt-Börnstein New Series, the unique, fully evaluated data collection in all areas of physical sciences and engineering. This is a systematic & comprehensive resource of selected and critically assessed data explained in their scientific context. SpringerMaterials covers the following areas:

* Particles, Nuclei and Atoms
* Molecules and Radicals
* Electronic Structure and Transport
* Magnetism
* Semiconductivity
* Superconductivity
* Crystallography
* Thermodynamics
* Multiphase Systems
* Advanced Materials
* Advanced Technologies
* Astro- and Geophysics


Both trial resources are available through MetaLib and through the links given, if you’re on campus.
