Library News for 2008

Library recycling efforts continue

A new recycling bin is in use in the Marco Center. This bin is for mixed paper, and what is (and is not) acceptable is noted on top of the bin.

Please note that our other recycling boxes (next to the printer in the Reference Room and in the Copy Room) are still in use. The Library staff reminds you to please be conscientious, and only print what you need. Please refer to the "Tips for Saving Paper and Toner" posters in the Library for helpful information.

OD 2012 Vision Health Care Projects

See the library's collection of VHC online resources here:

Vision Health Care Project Resources

This collection may be updated in the coming weeks so you may see some new resources when you check back. We'll update you in a few weeks to let you know what we've done.

We'd like to encourage you to make an appointment with us to work on what sources may be the best for you to use as you embark on your project work. Kristin is away until Monday, October 27, but feel free to contact any other library staff member should you need help in the meantime.

New England Eye Featured in Optometry

Two articles in the October 2008 issue of Optometry are the result of Dr. Roger Wilson's work with the American Optometric Association Community Health Center Committee to give a national perspective on health centers. These begin on pages 564 and 581.

Another article by Dr. Wilson and Dr. Vandhana Sharda, both of New England Eye, titled "History of community health center affiliations with The New England College of Optometry", showcases NECO's history as the leading institution of community-based clinical education in the nation. This article begins on page 594.

The October issue of Optometry is available via the journals pages on the Library web site, and these articles are also featured in our display of faculty publications.


NECO Critical Thinking

Dr. Aurora Denial was the guest editorialist (p. 82) as well as the author of two main articles discussing the impact of critical thinking skills on final-year clinical education (p. 103 & 107).

Dr. Nancy Carlson was also featured in the article titled "My best day in optometric education: getting to know students and watching them learn" (p. 87).

These articles are in v.33 #3 (Summer 2008) of Optometric education, available in print in the library, or by clicking the link below:
