Himmelfarb Headlines - November / December 2017

Director's Desk

Director's Desk, Anne LintonThe librarians and staff at Himmelfarb are proud to work with the students we serve on systematic reviews, culminating projects, research projects, and tough clinical questions. We are also pleased to celebrate our students’ many accomplishments in a number of ways.

Students from the School of Nursing, GWSPH, and the School of Medicine and Health Sciences participate in the annual GW Research Days program. Their abstracts, posters, and presentations are available online in Himmelfarb’s Health Sciences Research Commons (HSRC). Take a look at the variety of topics and disciplines covered by our accomplished student researchers! There are currently over 500 presentations online and they have been viewed over 2,300 times thus far in 2017. (Publications and presentations in the HSRC are freely available and searchable in Google Scholar). This year, Himmelfarb librarians also interviewed Research Days participants about their experiences as researchers and presenters. Hear what they had to say by looking at these videos. Students generally found the Research Days experience to be both challenging and rewarding!

Scholarly communications by students are highlighted in a variety of other ways. Many of the projects completed in fulfillment of the Doctor of Nursing Practice degree can be found online in the Health Sciences Research Commons. The HSRC also tracks many student publications and hosts the online version of Fusion, the annual student-run scientific journal of The George Washington University's William H. Beaumont Medical Research Honor Society.  Himmelfarb also celebrates its students in each issue of this newsletter with an interview highlighting their accomplishments, hobbies, and future plans!  Look at this month’s interview or scan back issues to learn which of our students take time from school work to write poetry, cook, or workout to loud dance music! Apparently, our students not only know how to work hard but also how to have fun!
