This week’s new resources


Yesterday I came into the library and saw an overflowing inbox — a great sight! I always enjoy coding new materials into Templeton’s catalog and advertising them around the department.

This week’s offerings include the following:

  • Journal of Thoracic Imaging (Nov. 2014): topics include CT-guided percutaneous lung biopsy and CT features in patients with advanced pulmonary adenocarcinoma. This issue is also available online.
  • Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology (Nov. 2014): topics include image-guided tumor ablation, uterine artery embolization, and factors affecting arterial distribution as related to particle embolization. You can also browse the current issue online.
  • RadioGraphics (Nov./Dec. 2014): topics include osseous tumors of the fingers, a review of histiocytic disorders, and methods for keeping MR imaging on schedule.¬†Click here to browse this issue.

A new service I’ve tacked onto our print journal subscriptions is adding QR codes to the front of each new issue. Scanning this code will take you to that journal’s current issue online — so if you’re reading the print version in the library and have to leave before you’re done browsing, you can take the online version with you. (If you don’t have a QR code scanner on your phone, you can download one for free really quickly.)

Where do you do most of your journal-reading? Would you find it helpful to have a list of “current issue” QR codes in your break room? Or do you already have your favorite journal sites bookmarked?
