Your Suggestions, Week of 1/21/19

I would appreciate a MyLibrary option that allows me to customize the tools that I regularly use. As faculty, I would greatly appreciate being able to quickly open the Journal of Nursing Education and the Nursing Education Perspectives journals without having to click on multiple pages to get to the articles.

We want to make it easy for you to access your journals.   When you use the OHSU Library Search on the home page to look for a journal, out Library catalog system offers a MyFavorites function (indicated by the blue push pin in the top right corner when you are logged in) that allows you to collect the links for the journals and books you access most frequently.

As you search for the title in our catalog, click the blue push pin to the far right of the title (not the push pin for Save Query) to add it to MyFavorites.

Then go to the My Library Card feature to see your list by clicking on the push pin on the top right.

If you prefer to create your list of commonly read journals in PubMed or another database, you can bookmark or save a title search for those journals as linked here.  Feel free to schedule a consultation to have a librarian visit you and discuss strategies for efficiently accessing all types of resources.
