Organized by the National Library of Medicine, this week-long survey course is designed to familiarize individuals with the application of computer technologies and information science in biomedicine and health science. Through a combination of lectures and hands-on computer exercises, participants will be introduced to the conceptual and technical components of biomedical informatics. Acceptance into the course is a competitive process. Kristen Burgess, UC Libraries’ assistant director for research and informatics, attended previously.
A goCharge charging station has been installed in the Health Sciences Library Computer lab opposite the computer lab helpdesk. The goCharge charging station provides a secure locker where you can charge your cell phones, smart phones and tablets.
Choose a locker and connect your device to one of the three appropriate cables for your device.
Close the locker and press the ‘C’ button. After a beep sounds enter a four-digit code and press the button with a lock icon. A beep code will sound to let you know that the locker secured.
To retrieve your device just follow the same procedures: press the ‘C’ button, enter your four-digit code and press the lock button.
If you forget your four-digit code, go to the Circulation desk for help.
