The Library Stampers are back!

After a break last year, the Trust has submitted another selection of teams to the 2017 Global Corporate Challenge and once again the Library Service has answered the call.

The Library Stampers are a team made up of people from all the library sites and contains some staff who completed the challenge in 2015 and some who are completely new to it.

The Global Corporate Challenge sees teams from across the world measuring their physical activity for 100 days which is translated into progress on a virtual trip across the globe.

Starting at the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, the Library Stampers are taking a virtual walk across the Americas. By day 28 the team has crisscrossed the US and Canada, and made it to Santiago de Cuba, having done over 2,236,300 steps

With a higher than average daily step count, for both the competition and our Trust, the team are making great progress on their world virtual tour, winning (virtual) trophies, increasing their daily amount of exercise (and beginning to wear holes in the library floors...).

New citation export function in Clinical Key

Clinical Key has a new export citation feature. This will enable you to make better use of your search results by selecting and exporting references, allowing you to store, organise and share them.

Researchers who often develop their own database of citations may find this new feature particularly useful.

When you have searched Clinical Key you will find the citation export icon against each reference.

You can then export you citation(s) from Clinical Key in several different formats and you can chose to include abstracts or just the bibliographic reference. Formats available from Clinical Key are:

  • RIS for End Note, Reference Manager, Procite and Menderley
  • BibTeX for Menderley
  • Text
