Mobile Device Web Pages Redefined
The UAMS Library has redesigned the mobile device web site to incorporate services and resources for multiple types of handheld devices: mp3/iPods, Blackberries, and the traditional Palm and Pocket PC powered devices. The Library provides technical support and selected handheld clinical database and podcast resources to help support the education and patient care needs of students and clinicians at UAMS. Please visit our improved resource for more information: Mobile Device Resources

New Nursing Resources Available in the LRC
The Learning Resource Center has partnered with the College of Nursing to replace old VHS videos with new CD-ROMs. The Mosby Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced Nursing Skills videos are now available on 60 of the LRC’s computers as well as the Citrix Remote Access server.
The Learning Resource Center has also purchased the Thomson Delmar Learning Complete Review for NCLEX-RN to help students prepare for the HESI and NCLEX exams. The CD-ROM contains questions that are representative of the types of questions seen on the NCLEX exam. Tests range from 75 – 225 questions that are pulled from a 4400 question bank. Tests can be taken in two modes. The Learning mode is not timed, and the student receives instant feedback after each question. The Test mode is timed and students can view incorrect answers and rationales at the end of the exam. The program is available on 60 of the LRC’s computers, with 10 CDs available for checkout.
