Library News for 2008

NECO Women in Optometry

President Chen is profiled in a page 4 article titled "Top of the ivory tower: Women rise to the highest levels in optometric academia", which highlights U.S. optometry schools led by women.

Dr. Nickla's research using chickens to study myopia progression is discussed in the article, "Chick research: O.D.'s research provides insights into human vision", which appears on page 9.

Both articles are in the September 2008 issue of Women in optometry, which can be found in the library shelved as a supplemental issue to Review of optometry.

Welcome New and Returning Students

The library offers many resources right from our web site and our new Facebook page, including 24/7 access to many journal and magazine articles for your work and personal interests.

The library is a comfortable, quiet place to study with:

-- PCs and laptops
-- print journals, magazines, and daily newspapers
-- online resources, including journal, magazine and newspaper articles
-- a collection of over 10,000 book titles
-- interlibrary borrowing from other libraries
-- friendly librarians

If we don't have the resources you need in our print and online collections, we can help you locate what you need elsewhere or find alternate resources in our collection. We look forward to meeting you in the coming weeks. Please stop in to say hello and try out our services. Stay tuned later this year for a survey about what you need and want from your library.

See you soon and good luck!
