Library Closure, Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

The OHSU Library will be closed on Wednesday, August 6th, 2014 for an in-service staff day. The After Hours Study Space will be available after 6 PM for OHSU students, faculty and staff with ID. The library will resume regular hours on Thursday, August 7th. For additional information on library hours see http://www.ohsu.edu/xd/education/library/about/hours.cfm.

The Learning Resource Center at the CLSB will be available for OHSU students, faculty and staff with ID.

New Library Hours!

After collecting and analyzing usage data, we have decided to change the library hours, effective Monday, August 4th.

The new hours will  be Monday-Friday 8am-6pm, Saturday 9am-5pm, Sunday 12-8pm.

Our statistics indicate that very few library users are here after 6pm, and the vast majority of those that are in the building are using the After-Hours Study Space. In addition, few circulation transactions are recorded after 6 pm. We believe the impact of closing the library at 6pm during the week will be minimal and will allow for more flexible staffing for the OHSU Library at the BICC and in the CLSB so we can be responsive to the needs of the students, staff and faculty in both locations.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact Stephanie Kerns at kernss@ohsu.edu.

A Letter from University Librarian, Chris Shaffer

OHSU Community Members:

On June 30, 2014, the OHSU Library is transitioning to a new system to help you find information resources more efficiently and effectively.

The new system, which will look a bit different, will allow you to search and request materials and access full text online.  It also provides the online search interface used to locate library materials through our consortium of 37 academic libraries, the Orbis Cascade Alliance.

The Library will offer drop in sessions, tutorials and one-on-one help to assist you in learning this new system. As we iron the bugs, we will be eager to have your feedback and appreciative of your patience.

Please communicate with us if you have questions, concerns or issues as we move through this transition.

Best regards,

Chris Shaffer, MS, AHIP
University Librarian and Associate Professor
Oregon Health & Science University Library

Why the change?
The switch to a new search is part of a major cooperative effort by the Orbis Cascade Alliance (Summit) to consolidate all 37 institutions’ holdings into one single, shared library system. This move will allow for collaborative collection development and more cooperative workflows. Since it is managed “in the cloud,” libraries will no longer need to maintain servers and manage separate systems. It should also offer opportunities for improved services down the line.

We’d Like Your Feedback!
Let us know how the new library search working!  If you have feedback or questions or would like to report a problem, please let us know using the form or phone number below.

Ontology Development Group Announces First Release of Monarch Initiative

Dr. Melissa Haendel and the Ontology Development Group announce the first (sneak peak) release of the Monarch Initiative (http://monarchinitiative.org/). The Monarch Initiative Discovery System will contain a wealth of information about model organisms, in vitro models, genes, pathways, gene expression, protein and genetic interactions, orthology, disease, phenotypes, publications, and authors with semantic similarity calculations that suggest novel relationships based on the information content of data descriptions.

Why are we calling this a Sneak Peek? Because we plan to incrementally add functionality over the next few months based on user feedback.The Sneak Peek currently includes phenotype-genotype data from human, mouse, and zebrafish. The system allows comparison of phenotypic profiles (either a disease related set or a user-defined set) across organisms using a semantic similarity algorithm (the OWLsim algorithm) and a suite of integrated phenotype, anatomy, and disease ontologies. Functionality includes the ability to explore the relationships between models, diseases, genes, and phenotypes, including a visualization tool to review phenotypes across models to investigate the degree to which they recapitulate a disease.

Services include an API to retrieve the models most related to any given set of phenotypes, as well as an API call to determine the sufficiency of a phenotype annotation profile. These services are being used within PhenoTips and by the NIH Undiagnosed Disease Program to compare human undiagnosed disease phenotype profiles against model systems to ensure adequate annotation to aid prioritization of gene candidates.

User feedback is welcome, please contact: info@monarchinitiative.org or Melissa Haendel: haendel@ohsu.edu
