The shiny new learning tool under our tree

The first few weeks of the holiday season are often the most hectic – fighting the crowds while gift shopping, scrambling to confirm travel plans and trying to slow down time to complete end-of-year work obligations. But here on the Health Sciences campus, another December tradition occupies our time before we even begin to think about what to get Uncle Joe for Hanukkah or whether we can get a direct flight to Grandma’s.

Exam time.

Each year, our medical, nursing, dental and allied health students harness Laupus Library’s countless learning resources to help them tune out the holiday noise and prepare for final exams. And just like Santa’s elves might celebrate the latest toy from the workshop, Laupus faculty become excited to unveil new learning resources that will benefit our Health Sciences community. Topping our “Favorite Things” list this year? NC LIVE, North Carolina’s statewide online library service.

Laupus Library now provides Health Sciences faculty and students with exclusive access to this comprehensive database, which offers free electronic information on a variety of topics. Designed for at-home use, NC LIVE provides access to educational eBooks, magazines, newspapers, journals, media and other online materials from any internet connection via the Laupus Library website.

Laupus Library is proud to be one of the nearly 200 North Carolina libraries with access to NC LIVE. And while we appreciate its capacity to serve the Health Sciences community year-round, having NC LIVE on our campus makes us feel extra jolly this holiday season. After all, isn’t an “A” on the final exam at the top of every one’s wish list?
