Library News 2001
143 health and life sciences e-journals from publishers W.B. Saunders, Mosby, Churchill Livingstone and Baillere are now available. The significance of this collection is the clinical content represented by the individual titles. Access will be enabled through QCAT and the Electronic Journals database.
The Bracken Library Teaching Centre has four new computers located at stations 1, 2, 8 and 9 that have CD ROM Read/Write capabilities. For some applications the CD ROM has to be formatted and this process can take up to 30 minutes. Formatted CD ROM’s can be purchased from the Circulation Desk for $3.00.
Bracken Health Sciences Library has one color printer available for public use. It is located on the main floor of the library. The cost to print one page is 60 cents and you have to use your Stauffer photocopy card.
Check out our new exhibit located upstairs next to the Bracken Library Teaching Centre entitled “The Brackens of Brockville – a Queen’s Family”. The exhibit was created by Heather Blyth, Assistant Curator of the Museum of Health Care.
There are five study rooms, which are available for individual or group study. Faculty members wishing to reserve a room can do so at the Circulation desk. Individuals can use a room if there is one available, but they cannot reserve one in advance. Two overhead projectors, two VCR’s and laptop connections are available in specific rooms. These rooms are kept locked and patrons wishing to us them will leave their Queen’s student or staff card at the Circulation desk to obtain the key. The card will be returned only after the key is handed back to the Circulation desk.
Dr. Wong, a valued supporter of Bracken Library passed away on August 12, 2001 at the age of 94. A major donation from Dr. Wing Wong of Vancouver was a most welcome enhancement to the Bracken Health Sciences Library endowment for acquisitions. Dr. Wong, a Queen’s University graduate in Medicine in 1934, has donated a total of $220,000 in memory of his late wife Vivian for the purchase of journals. The income from this major gift from Dr. Wong is earmarked to purchase electronic access to current medical journal information, to meet the needs of clinicians and researches who are increasingly requiring information at their fingertips, at point-of-need, at their desktop, in the hospital wards, in their laboratories or from home. Given the spiralling cost of the electronic medical journals, the importance of a donation such as Dr. Wong’s cannot be overemphasized, and the Bracken Health Sciences Library staff and users are extremely grateful for Dr. Wong’s generosity.
