Technology Show & Tell

From 11am-2pm on Wednesday the 26th, bring your questions to us. Having trouble connecting to wifi? Need a temporary laptop? Want a place for your group study? We can help you with that. If you have research questions about study materials, journals and articles, books, and flash cards, we can do that too!

We at the library are excited to see you. So excited, in fact, that we’re setting up a table outside the library to come out and say “Hi” and invite you to come and play with our toys. During the last year we’ve acquired some nifty gadgets you might find useful, so we’re bringing those out to play. Namely, a big screen that can connect to up to four laptops or tablets.

It’s perfect for group projects and study sessions, and if you want you can check it out and set up in the study area directly outside the library. We even have adapters for MacBook Pros and all iOS devices. Be sure to ask for them when you check out the display!

Let us know if you ever want to:

  • Record a lecture
  • Listen to videos in the library with headphones
  • Schedule a group study session
  • Put together a skeleton
  • Find some fun reading — everyone needs a break sometimes!

Evidence-Base Practice Resources

Around the MEC we hear the term “Evidence-based Practice” pretty much every day.  EBP is when you make decisions on how to treat your patient based on the best available evidence, your expertise, and the patient preferences.  Sounds pretty important right.  The NOVA Libraries have some great EBP point-of-care databases that can really help you find great information based on the best available evidence.

Check these sources out:

DynaMed

A clinical reference tool for physicians and health care professionals for use at the point-of-care.  With clinical organized summaries for more than 3,200 topics.

Nursing Reference Center

Evidence-based resource designed for point-of-care.  Includes evidence-based care sheets, quick lessons, patient education handouts, drug information, and continuing education materials.
