During the fiscal year 2011-2012, the Health Sciences Library’s journal budget held steady, however, journal prices continue to increase. To stay within budget it was necessary to reduce journal subscriptions by $90,000.

The publisher Karger agreed to reduce the price of their package deal so that we can continue to purchase the entire package. Without this collaboration we would have been forced to cancel 53 of their titles.

It was still necessary to cancel 56 lower use titles. The criteria used this year were that titles downloaded less than 500 times in 2011 and not published in by CU researcher in 2010 or 2011 were canceled. Early usage figures for 2012 and ISI impact factor were also checked. An alphabetical and subject list of the titles to be canceled follows below.

A History of the Health Sciences Lecture presented by the Columbia University Augustus C. Long Health Sciences Library

Thursday, December 6 at 6 pm with light refreshments at 5:30 pm
Russ Berrie Pavilion, 1150 St. Nicholas Ave., Room 2

Though neurosurgery as a distinct discipline only dates back about a century, neurosurgical operations are among the oldest known medical procedures, with Neolithic skulls showing signs of trephining, the opening up of the skull case to relieve the swelling of the brain.   Dr. Flamm will speak about these ad-hoc surgical procedures and the development of surgery, neuroanatomy and the other neurosciences from the ancient Greek and Romans through the Renaissance and the early modern period.  Profusely illustrated with images from the classic texts of surgery, Dr. Flamm will demonstrate that there was neurosurgery before Neurosurgery.

Dr. Eugene S. Flamm is the Jeffrey P. Bergstein Professor and Chairman of the Dept. of Neurosurgery at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.  He is an active researcher and clinician with in interest in cerebrovascular neurosurgery and spinal cord injury. 

Dr. Flamm is also an ardent book collector, the President of the Grolier Club – the country’s pre-eminent society for bibliophiles – and author of, among other works, From Skulls to Brains: 2500 Years of Neurosurgical Progress.
