New Library Initiative: OUWB Publication List

The Medical Library is pleased to announce our inaugural OUWB Publication List featuring the published work of OUWB faculty, staff, and students! With over 1500 affiliates, our school has an immense repertoire of scholarly activity to showcase. This quarterly report recognizes and provides quick access links to our authors' journal articles, meeting abstracts, book chapters, books, and other published works.

For the current report (January - June 2013), we discovered 93 total publications including six from MedEdPortal and four featuring our medical students as authors! Click on the image to the right to read the complete report.

A special thanks to Evan Sprague, our Medical Library Assistant, for the extensive time and effort he has put forth in searching and documenting citations, and developing this publication list.

If your publication was inadvertently missed, please email the citation to us at, and it will appear in next quarter's report!

Student Corner

Clerkship Textbooks Now Available Check out our Clerkship Textbook page to see the availability of your clerkship textbooks at the OUWB Medical Library! Some textbooks are available electronically, but we also have two copies of all your required and recommended textbooks in the Medical Library Study Room here at Oakland.

Not going to be on Oakland's campus very often? Copies of all textbooks are also available in the OUWB Reserves collection at the Beaumont Health System Library at Royal Oak.

Search for a Survey Tool for your Capstone Project using HaPI Looking to implement a survey or questionnaire as part of your Capstone project? Have you found one? Try searching the new Health & Psychosocial Instruments (HaPI) database from the Medical Library! HaPI specializes in documenting studies that utilize survey instruments and can help you identify a tool for your own project. Note that HaPI does not directly link to the survey tool, and you may need to get permission to use an existing instrument in your project.

Faculty Corner

Easier Off-Campus Access to Library Online Resources OU Libraries has streamlined off-campus access to our online resources. OU students, faculty and staff can log into library resources using their standard OU NetIDs. We hope the new process will greatly simplify remote access to our online databases, journals, and articles, as it eliminates the need for users to memorize a different login/password. For those faculty based at Beaumont, you will need to activate your NetID and set-up a password in order to access our resources from off-campus. For more information and step-by-step instructions for accessing resources remotely, please visit our off-campus information page.

If you have any questions, please contact us at or (248) 370 - 3772.
