Three Bytes of Library News You Can Use

1. New Journal Metrics Guide!

Need to determine your H-Index? Trying to determine in which journal to publish? Our Journal Metrics guide will clear up the mystery surrounding journal metrics like the Eigenfactor and Impact Factor and will guide you through the scholarly metrics features on Journal Citation Reports, Scopus, Google Scholar, and Ulrich’s Periodical Directory.

2. Be a PubMed Ninja

…or whatever kind of research ninja you wish to be. CINAHL, PsycInfo, Google Scholar, you name it!

Meet with a Searching Sensei (a.k.a. librarian) individually or in a small group to hone your searching skills. We guarantee you’ll leave with literature for that pesky project you’re working on.

3. I-Share: Textbooks, and movies, and cookbooks… oh my!

As a registered user at the Library of Rush University Medical Center, you can borrow books, eBooks, movies, and audiobooks from over 80 libraries in I-Share. Requested materials are delivered to Rush (or any I-Share library of your choosing) in 3 to 5 business days. It’s crazy convenient!

To search the I-Share catalog, simply click on the red Catalog tab on our homepage and change the right-hand drop-down menu to All I-Share Libraries. For assistance, stop by the Library Services Desk or call (312) 942-5950.

Rush is a not-for-profit health care, education and research enterprise comprising Rush University Medical Center, Rush University, Rush Oak Park Hospital and Rush Health.
