FIND AND READ JOURNAL ARTICLES EASILY
The CLIC librarians are always looking for the improvements in the way one finds and reads journal articles. We found a terrific app called BrowZine and it is free! If you have an iPad, iPhone or android tablet, we hope you will take a minute to download this free app.
You can use Browzine to search the library’s collection of online journals by title. You can also browse the current or back issues, read the articles and put them in your RefWorks account. Finally, you can put that journal on your Browzine bookshelf and the next time you return, instead of searching for the journal, all you need to do is click on the journal image (as pictured above)! Trust us, you should Download the Browzine and give it a try. You will be asked to select a library so select University of Virginia. You will be asked to enter your NetBadge password so you can read the articles full text!
ONLINE MEDICAL BOOKS PREFERRED
The Claude Moore Health Sciences Library at UVa added 167 print books to their collection in 2013. During the same period of time, they added 1,072 ebooks! And that gap will grow larger in the years ahead as staff focused on the goal of providing 24/7 access to the information you need. We know students and faculty in Curry’s Kinesiology and Speech Pathology and Audiology areas salute this goal! Click here to see links to their various Ebook collections,

NON-ACADEMIC WRITING ABOUT RESEARCH
Making complex research concepts easily accessible to policymakers and practitioners can be challenging for researchers who have been trained to write for an academic audience.

It also includes a glossary that shows how to apply these approaches to writing about commonly used concepts in impact research, such as regression analysis and effect size
