The fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders is expected to be available online June 1.  The diagnostic differences between DSM-IV-TR and DSM-5 and the insurance implications of the DSM-5 are outlined on the American Psychiatric Association website.

Paper copies of the DSM-5 will be available on reserve here at the Augustus C Long Health Sciences Library and in the New York State Psychiatric Institute Library as soon as they are received.

In this issue:

  • What's new in HSL?
  • Resource spotlight
  • BrowZine app on trial
  • Hidden dangers: Rootkits & Botnets

... and more

Starting April 23rd access to the Reading Room will be through the doors to the LL1 hallway instead of the library stairs. This change will reduce extraneous traffic in the library lobby and facilitate easier access to amenities, such as bathrooms, from the Reading Room. Happy studying!

From April 15th to May 15th Columbia University will have trial access to an app that delivers thousands of academic journals to your iPad (Android and iPhone support planed for the future). BrowZine presents journals that the library already subscribes to formatted appropriately for the iPad.

To learn more about what BrowZine can do watch the introductory video or download the app from the link below and start exploring.

Available on the App Store
