Karen Sorensen, Reference Librarian, co-authored an article, titled “The impact of active video gaming on weight in youth: a meta-analysis,” published in Clinical Pediatrics (Phila), 2015.


This October, as in previous years, Aurelia Minuti, Head of Reference & Educational Services, was asked by Aaron D. Fox, M.D., M.S., course director  of the Research-Based Health Activism elective course, to teach fourth year medical students how to perform efficient literature searches and conduct systematic reviews. 

As part of the same course, Nancy Glassman, Assistant Director for Informatics taught the students how to manage the results with EndNote, one of the citation management software programs available through the library.

At the conclusion of the course, after the students presented their final proposals, Dr. Fox expressed appreciation for the knowledge imparted to them by the librarians:

“Thank you for participating as faculty once again this year.  Your session on systematic reviews and efficient literature searches is so important for [the students’] development in research.  I hope you will consider teaching again in the elective next year. The students and I are grateful for your contributions.”
