Opening today: “Confronting Violence, Improving Women’s Lives” from NLM

Thursday, September 17th, 2015
Confronting VIolence in WomenFor many years, the National Library of Medicine (NLM) has created a wide variety of exhibitions and companion websites to inform the public about issues which also highlight various aspects and elements of NLM’s extensive collections.

NLM has announced the release of another special display and traveling banner exhibition made available free of charge to cultural institutions across the country and an online adaptation of Confronting Violence, Improving Women’s Lives.

Confronting Violence tells a story that is unfamiliar to most. In fact, within the scholarly community, no one has written about this chapter in history. For many, the anti-domestic violence movement came into focus during the 1985 Surgeon General’s Workshop on Violence and Public Health or with the passage of the 1994 Violence Against Women Act. Yet, for years prior, nurse reformers were working on the front lines in shelters and emergency rooms across the country. They conducted studies, analyzed data and developed protocols for identification and treatment of patients who had experienced domestic violence.

Until the late 1970s, medicine as a whole had largely dismissed or failed to acknowledge domestic violence as a significant health issue. Nurses pushed the larger medical community to identify victims of battering, adequately respond to victims’ needs and work towards prevention. Confronting Violence chronicles the experiences of these passionate, persistent nurses, who changed the medical profession and dramatically improved services to victims of domestic violence in the latter half of the 20th century. The work continues today, as individuals from all walks of life and organizations draw upon the lessons of the past to develop innovative and creative approaches to supporting survivors and preventing domestic violence.

The special display will be open to the public in the NLM History of Medicine Division (HMD) Reading Room on the first floor of the National Library of Medicine, September 17, 2015 – August 19, 2016.

An opening program will take place September 17 from 1:00 to 3:00 PM in NLM’s Lister Hill Auditorium. The traveling banner adaptation of Confronting Violence, Improving Women’s Lives will be traveling to 50 sites across the country over the next four years. Please visit the Traveling Exhibition Services Web site to see the tour itinerary and find this exhibition near you.

SciENcv Updated to Support New NIH Biosketch Format

Monday, August 17th, 2015

In November, NIH announced a new format for biographical sketches (aka biosketches); the new format is required for grant applications submitted for due dates after May 24, 2015. SciENcv, a tool available through PubMed’s My NCBI for creating biosketches, has been updated to reflect the format changes and to help users convert their existing NIH biosketches from the old format to the new.

Differences between the old and new NIH Biosketch formats include:

  1. Maximum length increased from 4 to 5 pages
  2. Rearranged data in the table at the top of the Biosketch
  3. Section A, Personal Statement can now include up to 4 supporting citations
  4. Section C is now called “Contribution to Science” and should be comprised of up to 5 brief descriptions of your most significant contributions to science, each with up to 4 supporting citations. In addition,  you may also provide a URL to a full list of your published work as found in a publicly available digital database such as My Bibliography. This section is the most notable difference in the new format.
