First-year Library Electronic Scavenger Hunt

WINNERS of the Medical Student first-year Library Electronic Scavenger Hunt!

First year medical students attended a session about the library during Freshman Orientation on July 31. The students then had the opportunity to participate in a “Scavenger Hunt” contest by answering questions about the library website. All correct Scavenger Hunt questionnaires were entered in a random drawing for prizes. Congratulations to our winners:

$25 gift certificates for the Bookstore (Donated by the Bookstore)
Randi Domingue

Helen R. Carter

Lauren Dawn

Gross Anatomy - Board Review Series
Taylor L. Millar

Bonus Prizes - Giant Microbes
Flu - Benjamin T. Talley

Stem Cell - Charlotte L. Meyer

Thanks for all those that entered!


The faculty are very concerned about students copying material directly from resources to answer small group questions without either quoting the material if it is verbatim or parapharsing the material appropriately. In addition, students in the past have not properly cited materal so faculty cannot view the resource online. Check out the resources below to avoid any ethical/professionalism issues in your small group answers! 



Eyeglass Drive

In cooperation with the Ophthalmology Interest Group and the Shreveport Red River Lions Club, the Health Sciences Library will be holding an Eyeglass Drive during the month of September.

To donate your old glasses, please leave them in the basket at the Library’s circulation desk. You can also leave eyeglasses in the basket in Room 3-344 at the School of Allied Health Professions.

At the end of September, the glasses will be given to the Shreveport Red River Lions Club. The Lions Club accepts prescription glasses, reading glasses, and sunglasses, with plastic or metal frames. Children’s glasses are especially needed.

Donate your old eyeglasses and help change lives one pair at a time.

BrowZine Now Available!

In response to your requests, the Library recently added BrowZine, a literature surveillance app.  With Browzine, you can easily browse journals by subject, review tables of contents, and read articles from any web browser or mobile device.  With the “My Bookshelf” feature, Browzine tracks your favorite journals and alerts you when new articles are published.
