Fall 2017 HSLANJ Group Licensing Offer Now Available

Thu, 2017-09-28 09:02

HSLANJ

PRINCETON, NJ (September 27, 2017) – All medical librarians in a 20-state area including the NNLM’s Middle Atlantic (MAR), Southeastern/Atlantic (SEA), and New England (NER) Regions are welcome to participate in the technology-sharing, cost-cutting consortium organized by the non-profit Health Sciences Library Association of New Jersey’s Group Licensing Initiative (HSLANJ GLI).

Deadline to participate in the Fall Offer is Friday, November 17. Due to the online ordering system, no exceptions can be made regarding the deadline. The HSLANJ GLI greatly appreciates and welcomes early orders.

The HSLANJ GLI is recognized by the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) as the lead organization capable of assisting health sciences librarians obtain resources.

“We are a state library, so we are dependent on government funding (which this year wasn’t looking so great) so knowing we can talk to our stakeholders and let them know we can get great prices by participating, it shows we’re making all the efforts to have good practices with our budget…. Certainly being a small library with a limited budget, there’s no way we’d be able to purchase resources on our own… being in a consortium is the only way we could make that happen,” says Alison Wessel , Director of Library and Information Services, Delaware Department of Health and Social Services, New Castle, Delaware. Wessel began participating in the HSLANJ GLI’s Offers in 2016.

Additional feedback from librarians, along with previews of vendors’ fall resources, can be found at hslanj.org/news.

Questions? Please contact Robert T. Mackes (570-856-5952 or rtmackes@gmail.com).

Founded in 1972, HSLANJ is a non-profit organization which encourages the professional development and advancement of librarianship to improve the quality of library services provided by health care organizations.  To learn more, visit www.hslanj.org.

Comments Requested by October 31 for Proposed Changes to Indicators for Some Subject Fields in MARC Records

Wed, 2017-09-27 11:54

As part of NLM’s efforts to prepare cataloging data for a linked data environment, it has been determined that some of the MARC coding for the subject fields is not accurate and will not create true triple statements in an RDF environment. Historically, all MARC 6XX fields used in NLM bibliographic records have been assigned a second indicator of “2” defined as Medical Subject Headings (MeSH). This is true for data in the 650, 651, and 655 fields which are all taken from the MeSH vocabulary. However, data in the 600, 610, 611, and 630 fields does not come from MeSH, it comes from the National Authority File (NAF). Therefore, coding these fields with a second indicator of “2” is erroneous information. A second indicator of “0” (Library of Congress Subject Headings) would also not be correct. Although Library of Congress uses the NAF form for these subjects, LCSH practices for construction of name and title access points allow additions to these fields that NLM does not permit.

To accurately portray these subject fields, the second indicator should be “7” (Source specified in $2) with an accompanying $2 naf added to the 6XX field. NLM would like to make these changes in its files. NLM recognizes that some libraries may rely on the second indicator in the 6XX fields for internal processing. Before making changes to the records, NLM is asking for community input on the impact to your organization or institution if indicators on the 600, 610, 611, and 630 fields were updated from “2” to “7” with the addition of a $2 naf. There may be positive as well as negative impacts. Libraries that are already converting MARC data into triples or have plans to do this in the near future will find that having accurate indicators in the records will more likely allow link resolvers to automatically find the correct data.

Comments about this proposed change to NLM records should be sent to Diane Boehr, Head, Cataloging and Metadata Management Section, by October 31. No changes to cataloging records will be made until the comments are reviewed. Ample notification will be provided before any MARC changes are made.

Thu, 2017-09-21 13:33

The National Library of Medicine is extending the coverage area of the Emergency Access Initiative (EAI) to include the healthcare response in the Caribbean islands impacted by Hurricane Maria, and those impacted by the earthquake in Mexico.   EAI continues to be available to libraries and healthcare responders to those impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

The Emergency Access Initiative is a collaborative partnership between NLM and participating publishers to provide temporary free access to full-text articles from over 650 biomedical serial titles and over 4,000 reference books and online databases to healthcare professionals and libraries affected by disasters.  The Emergency Access Initiative serves as a temporary collection replacement and/or supplement for libraries affected by disasters that need to continue to serve medical staff and affiliated users.  It is also intended for medical personnel responding to the specified disaster.

EAI is not an open access collection – it is only intended for those affected by the disaster or assisting the affected population.  If your library is working with a library or organization involved in relief efforts in affected areas, please let them know of this service.

NLM thanks the participating publishers for their generous support of this initiative:  American Academy of Pediatrics, American Association for the Advancement of Science, American Chemical Society, American College of Physicians, American Medical Association, American Society of Health-Systems Pharmacists, ASM Press, B.C.
