The 2008 telephone survey is underway through the end of August. This year they become one of the only health surveys to target cell phone users, too. Listen to a feature on WHYY’s Morning Edition (mp3).

The 2008 survey will include some new topics/questions including: utilization of the A One C test among those with diabetes, patterns of sleep, healthcare/provider distrust scale, aging in place, utilization of glasses among children, physical activity, and housing and economic questions.

New version of Write-N-Cite boasts single document manuscripts

Wednesday, June 4th, 2008

Here is a video tutorial on using WNC version 3 that Dan Kipnis, Education Services Librarian, recorded. He’s also covered a series of other RefWorks features.

Unfortunately, the new version is not yet available for Mac.
