NEW: ClinicalKey for Nursing, MetaDrug, and Integrity

July 8, 2019 - 3:06pm by Dana Haugh

Check out these great new resources brought to you by the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library: ClinicalKey for Nursing  ClinicalKey for Nursing is an online resource featuring timely content covering nearly every nursing specialty.  The collection is indexed daily and continues to be updated as new resources are published.  This database includes journals, books, disease topic pages, procedures videos, and more.  Integrity  Integrity focuses exclusively on pharma and drug development intelligence, harmonizing and integrating essential biological, chemical, and pharmacological data from disparate sources into a single platform. This resource provides easy access to pipeline data, granular target and MOA information, and manually curated data specific to drug development.  Access to Integrity requires an individual user account.  Request an account by filling out this form OR Login to Integrity. MetaDrug MetaDrug contains curated information on biological effects of small molecule compounds. It is a systems pharmacology solution that combines pharmacogenomics and toxicogenomics as well as predictive capabilities. Every target in MetaDrug comes with protein interactions to explore biological pathways affected by the user’s compounds and network neighborhood of drug targets. OMICs data analysis capabilities provide an additional approach for solving the compound’s mechanisms of action, discovering drug efficacy biomarkers, and corroborating the hypotheses generated by classical structure-based methods.    MetaDrug is available within MetaCore, which requires an individual user account.  Request an account by filling out this form OR Login to MetaCore.

Finding Associated Data in PubMed and PubMed Central

July 5, 2019 - 9:29am by Sawyer Newman

As a quick reminder, PubMed contains citations for biomedical literature that users can access through the library. PubMed Central (PMC) is a free full-text archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature. For more information about the differences between PubMed and PubMed Central, refer to this article.  Until relatively recently, PMC was curated in a way archival collection of journal articles that allowed the use of found literature to discover more related research literature. In other words, articles have been linked to other articles, as illustrated below.   However, research publications have become more complicated than article to article relationships can represent. Individual articles can be made up multiple resources including peer review statements, data, and code in addition to other related articles. See this illustrated below.     To achieve this model, which will enhance the findability of research efforts alongside literature,  NLM links associated data to publications via PubMed Central and My NCBI, which can could be presented in any or all of the three following forms:      

Two New Bioinformatics Tools

July 1, 2019 - 1:46pm by Rolando Garcia-Milian

The Medical Library is providing free access for Yale affiliates to two new resources for drug discovery and research: METADRUG MetaDrug contains curated information on biological effects of small molecule compounds. It is a systems pharmacology solution that combines pharmacogenomics and toxicogenomics as well as predictive capabilities. Every target in MetaDrug comes with protein interactions to explore biological pathways affected by the user’s compounds and network neighborhood of drug targets. OMICs data analysis capabilities provide an additional approach for solving the compound’s mechanisms of action, discovering drug efficacy biomarkers, and corroborating the hypotheses generated by classical structure-based methods. If you already have a MetaCore account, this module is already included. Otherwise, please request your MetaCore/MetaDrug account here Integrity Integrity focuses exclusively on pharma and drug development intelligence, harmonizing and integrating essential biological, chemical, and pharmacological data from disparate sources into a single platform. Integrity provides easy access to pipeline data, granular target and MOA information, and manually curated data specific to drug development. Request an account by filling this form   SUBSCRIBE RECEIVE MONTHLY ALERTS ON NEW TRAINING AND SOFTWARE

Katie Hart recognized with Visionary Award

June 25, 2019 - 8:49am by Dana Haugh

Katie Hart was awarded FLY's (Future Leaders of Yale) first 'Visionary' award on June 17, 2019 in a ceremony recognizing early career professionals at Yale. Katie, CWML's Senior Administrative Assistant, was nominated by Bob Hughes for her exceptional leadership and foresight, especially during this past year's renovation.  Well before the start of construction, Katie took the initiative to develop a plan for relocating all of the library’s furniture. She compiled a list of every item that could be impacted by the project and categorized them. She then oversaw all of the move. As the Library’s point person, she coordinated with staff, patrons, and construction crew both directly and through online communications. To quote her nominator, “This was, by far, the medical library’s largest construction project in many, many years, and it all went without a hitch because Katie had the foresight to develop her game plan well ahead of time.” Read the full story and learn more about the award here: https://fly.yale.edu/news/fly-recognizes-early-career-professionals-first-awards-ceremony. Big congratulations to Katie and, seriously, thank you for all that you do!!
