Holiday Weekend Hours

A long weekend is approaching: the Library will be closed this Monday, January 18 in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. We’ll be open regular hours Saturday and Sunday.

By the way, have you ever searched for Martin Luther King in PubMed? (No, I’m the only person who ever does that). It thinks you’re searching for an author named Luther Martin, and the word King. It doesn’t find anything. You can check the details page to see how PubMed translates your search incorrectly. On the other hand, if you search for “Martin Luther King” in quotation marks (which I normally don’t recommend!) you get more expected results – a few articles referring to the man himself (like this one), more from hospitals and medical centers named after him, and a whole bunch from institutions with addresses on Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue, Drive, Boulevard, or even Platz (in Hamburg!).

But, if you feel like maybe MLK PubMed searches aren’t the best use of your time on your day off, here is a link to find volunteer opportunities to make your MLK Day a Day of Service. See you back at the Library next Tuesday!

EndNote reports fix available shortly for data import of 2010 references


EndNote reported a problem last week with importing references for articles published from 2010 or later in all versions of the software except EndNote X3. *Please be aware that if you are using End Note X2 or earlier, the date field for any year 2010 articles that you import may be blank.*  If this occurs, you will need to  manually enter 2010 in the empty year field.

EndNote plans to make a patch available to fix this issue for EndNote X2 and EndNote X1.  The patch for EndNote X2  is expected in early 2010.  The patch for EndNote X1 will follow in the first quarter of 2010.  End Note no longer supports EndNote X and earlier versions, and does not plan to provide a  fix for those versions.  More details can be found on the EndNote website –

EndNote X3 may be obtained through the Levy Library for $50.  The list price on the EndNote website for a single CD-Rom copy is $299.95.  To purchase a copy, please contact the Levy Library Computing Help Desk at

The Library also offers the following EndNote classes:
