News From the Libraries: March 2022

Library Launches Structured Review Service

Structured reviews, including scoping, integrative and systematic reviews, are on the rise. In response to increasing requests for a higher level of support, the Liaison Librarian team now offers a formalized service, which partners researchers with an appropriately trained librarian to assist them. 

Users can select from two service tiers. At the first tier, any UT Health San Antonio affiliate can consult with librarians to develop a search strategy. For the second tier, faculty can add librarians to their team to construct a complete and reportable search methodology. Many of our faculty, staff, residents and students have successfully published scholarly works after collaborating with our liaison librarians.

Take a look at what the service can provide here on our online guide or contact your school’s liaison librarian for more information.

Biography of a Painting II: Eakins’ "The Portrait of Samuel D. Gross"

Dr. Anand Karnad and Dr. Carolina Velez-Mejia

Thursday, March 31st at 6pm via Zoom

This talk continues the theme of learning the history of medicine through the exploration of art. Thomas Eakins’ most famous painting featured Samuel D. Gross, an American surgeon and teacher of medicine. This talk will explore the history of surgeons and surgery in the late 1800s through the lens of Eakins’ works. This is the second talk by Dr. Karnad that focuses on the history of medicine and art. This talk will also feature works from the P.I. Nixon Medical Historical Library.

A recording of Dr. Karnad’s first talk, Robert Hinckley’s “The First Operation with Ether” can be found in the library’s Digital Archive
