In response to the spread of Monkeypox both nationally and within the Commonwealth, librarians at Lamar Soutter Library have collected sources of reliable information and tools for effective communication regarding this new declared public health emergency.
The Library is pleased to announce the addition of the LGBTQ+ Source database to our offerings available through EBSCO. The LGBTQ+ Source is primarily a social science database which includes ample coverage of resources related to LGBTQ+ issues, including social determinants of health. The database also includes several journals, magazines and monographs focused on public health, sexual health and mental health through the LGBTQ+ lens.
There are some new and exciting classes and workshops being offered by the LSL librarians. These classes will explore different resources for searching and managing literature along with traditional and alternative metrics for measuring scholarship. Register for one or more now!
