Science Hack Day Meet & Greet

BlogPosts

The organizers of Portland Science Hack Day, including the OHSU Library, are hosting a happy hour meet and greet on Wednesday, August 17, from 5 – 7 PM.  Science Hack Day is an event where anyone excited about making things with science comes together to see what they can prototype in 24 hours.  As described in this recent PNAS article these events are valuable and often transformative for scientists.  Learning the guts of our equipment, hardware, and, software helps researchers to improve transparency and reproducibility.  It helps us learn new skills and forge collaborations to build the tools and software we need, rather than relying on proprietary resources.

Never hacked before?  Wednesday’s meet & greet is for you!  Hack Day enthusiasts will be there to share their experiences and ideas to get you inspired for Portland Science Hack Day in October.  There will also be a raffle for two $50 Powell’s Books gift cards,  Anyone who is excited about making things with science and technology is encouraged to attend.

Learn more, get inspired, form a team!

Find It @ OHSU Links Missing in Google Scholar

The Find It @ OHSU links in Google Scholar are not showing because of an update to the Library’s catalog software.  If you use Google Scholar, you may not be able to click directly to articles that the Library owns.

The software vendor, Ex Libris, is working with Google to get the problem resolved.  The resolution may take up to a week and we appreciate your patience.

Please use Library Search to access articles that we own.
