New Books at Williams Library!

We’ve added new books to the print collection at Williams Health Sciences Library. Please feel free to come down and browse and perhaps check something out!

Here are a couple of examples of some new titles that are aimed at students but also have a broader appeal:

Building a medical vocabulary: with Spanish translations

Image of Book Cover I chose this book mostly because it advertised that each chapter presents Spanish terms related to the chapter content. It also has Appendices of Spanish-English translations of common medical terms, and a “Quick Reference” for Spanish-Speaking clients that include pronunciation guides.

Now that I have the book in my hands I see that it’s got a lot of blank spaces for people to write in.

All I ask is that you photocopy the pages you want to use!

101 Things to do with spare moments on the ward

Image of Book CoverOne reviewer called this book, “a concentrated portfolio of advice for students and professionals everywhere.” I chose it because it seems like the kind of book that endeavors to make learning fun and interesting.

There’s even a website where you can submit your own ideas for “hidden learning opportunities”: www.101things.org

For those of you who might be thinking, “Spare moments? What spare moments?” I encourage you to glance through this book with an eye for activities that might make your work life easier.
