Alzheimer’s Awareness

November is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month. Learn about Alzheimer’s disease by visiting the Alzheimer’s Awareness display, on exhibit throughout November, in the main corridor of Booth Library. The display has been curated by students in the EIU chapter of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

On November 15, 2017 at 5:00 p.m., Dr. Britto Nathan will speak about Alzheimer’s Awareness in Booth Library Witters Conference Room 4440. The program is free and open to the public.

In the presentation, Dr. Nathan will discuss the biochemical and molecular pathways that lead to Alzheimer’s disease. A better understanding of these pathways may one day help researchers develop novel therapeutics to combat Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Nathan is professor and assistant chair of Biological Sciences at EIU. Nathan’s presentation is sponsored by the EIU chapter of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

More than 5 million Americans are afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease. Within the next few decades, this illness is predicted to be on the rise. The only drugs that exist specifically for Alzheimer’s disease are purely symptomatic and are not able to slow the progression of the disease.

In addition to the books below, which are on display and available for checkout, view these reference articles in our Gale Virtual Reference Library that give a quick overview of Alzheimer’s disease.

Watch these videos about Alzheimer’s disease via our Kanopy Streaming Video library.

Database of the Week: CLCD Children’s Literature Comprehensive Database

Welcome back for another Database of the Week! This week I, your humble library writing intern, would like to present the Children’s Literature Comprehensive Database (or CLCD for short.)

You can find CLCD by navigating to ‘C’ on the database A-Z page. Or,select the ‘Research by Subject’ tab above the search bar and then click on ‘Literature/Drama.’ Scroll down to the heading “Interdisciplinary and Related” to find CLCD.

CLCD mostly applies to elementary and middle grade education majors, there are still some valuable assets to this easy-to-search site for all (especially for those avid YA readers, like myself!)

screenshot of database search pageThe advanced search features allow for many different ways to look for titles, authors, subject areas, or even age ranges. So, if you were to do a presentation for your children’s lit class about historical fiction, you could select an age range (anywhere from ages 1-18), a series, the scholastic reading level or even the amount of Accelerated Reading points the title is worth.

For that same presentation on historical fiction, you can search specifically for the country of publication. CLCD allows you to focus on international titles like those from the U.K. or Canada.

But what if you are really passionate about historical fiction (as I am, obviously), and you would like to focus on only acclaimed books, like award winners? There’s even a selection for that!

screenshot of power search interfaceIf you’re interested in a boarder search (or the number of options is too overwhelming when you’re buried in midterms!), ditch all the Advanced Search options, and stick to the efficient ‘Power Search’ option in CLCD (psst! ‘Power Search’ tab is on the top right, next to ‘Advanced Search.’)

 

With this option you can search more generally for all the options that the Advanced Search offers, just in a simpler format that is more accessible for people with sensory disorders (or people who prefer a simpler interface).

Some of the features of this database can be used for lesson planning on a certain subject… or for that special YA reader in your life who only wants to read particular subjects. The CLCD has a ‘Read and Shine’ blog, which covers reading lists based on age range, such as picture books, middle grade books, and even author interviews about their publications.

The CLCD also offers thematic reading lists, focusing on a topic and including a wide range of titles. Here’s a few to kick off your own research:

Cover for 'The Top Ten Most Challenged Books'

‘The Top Ten Most Challenged Books’ includes titles such as Eleanor and Park, I Am Jazz, and Make Something Up: Stories You Can’t Unread.

Cover for 'Mental Illness in YA'

‘Mental Illness in YA – A Reading List’ includes titles such as It’s Kind of a Funny Story, Finding Audrey, and The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B.

Cover for 'Books to Read Aloud'

‘Books to Read Aloud for All Ages’ includes titles such as Holes, Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key, and Borrowers.

That’s all for this week. Check out the Ref News blog for more neat finds in our massive collection. And of course, come back next week for another Database of the Week! And happy reading!

Database of the Week: Kanopy Streaming Media

Kanopy Streaming Logo

Welcome to ‘Database of the Week,’ where we here at Booth, with the help of our invaluable Reference Librarians, will be shining a light on some of those lesser-known, but wonderfully valuable, databases we host at the library!

For the first database to showcase, we’re picking something that you can use for those film and history classes, but you can also use on your downtime from classes, too. And it’s educational, so you aren’t technically slacking.

Kanopy Streaming is one of the streaming databases you can find on on the database A-Z page (click on ‘K‘) linked from Booth’s website. You can also find it on the ‘Books and Movies’ search tab from the homepage. (Click on ‘Streaming Video’ under the search bar!)

Kanopy Streaming has a Netflix-like interface, where you’re able to scroll though documentaries, foreign films, and even classic movies, and stream them at your leisure. You can watch off campus too (with your EIU login, of course)! Kanopy Streaming also has some pretty nice features, for instance:

Users who are hearing impaired (Or with really loud roommates) can run a transcript of the video while it plays. Just start the film, click the ‘More’ link, and then the ‘Transcript.’ If you don’t quite know where to start in Kanopy Streaming’s large collection of titles, the ‘Subjects’ link at the top of the screen can help you sort through films to find that one particular doc you need on women in media, or the over-arching effects of global warming.

Here are a few interesting titles to get you started:

Before Stonewall Thumbnail

Before Stonewall (1984): a documentary focusing on the lives of LGBT peoples before the police raid on the Stonewall Inn in 1969, which opened the floodgates to the fight for equal rights for LGBT Americans.

Thumbnail of Stolen Education

Stolen Education: The Legacy of Hispanic Racism in Schools (2013): another doc, but this one details the struggle of Hispanic-American children in the 1950s school system. Chronicling their struggles, from being held back in first grade for three years, to being discouraged to achieve academically because they spoke Spanish, this film gives a critical view to both racism and the education system.

And, for those times when you need a break from any and all academia:

BBC Emma Thumbnail

The BBC’s Emma: this four-episode series brings the comedic Austen novel about the beautiful Emma Woodhouse’s matchmaking abilities right into your dorm! This pick is best suited for a mini-binge before your chemistry homework.

The Blob (1958): a cult classic! This cheesy “horror” movie is perfect for a Friday night treat after a week full of classes.

That’s all for Kanopy Streaming. So please, enjoy some movies this weekend! See you next week for another featured Database of the Week.

Small Scale Sustainable Gardening

 image a basket of vegetables

 Planting season is coming up! Get a head start on your small-scale herb or kitchen garden with resources from Booth. 

 

Several Books on gardening, both small and larger scale are listed below. Additionally we have many DVDs related to food, gardening, and sustainable agriculture.

Gardens of DestinyS605.5 .G38 2010x .DVD
Dan Jason is an organic gardener and the head of the Seed and Plant Sanctuary for Canada. This film explores Dan’s garden and seed world and investigates such issues as genetic engineering, terminator seeds, and the pitfalls of industrial agriculture in North America. The film offers several easy solutions for citizens and governments in the United States and Canada, including supporting organic growers and starting your own organic garden.

New Farms, Big Success — S494.5.S86 N49 2014x .DVD
This documentary presents three, ecologically responsible farms in the USA and Canada. Their unique business plans eliminate the middle man, use sustainable methods and few fossil fuels and show a decent living can be made! With participation of leading environmentalist, educator, Bill McKibben, the film provides critical information to develop an enduring, local food network in a time of climate change and includes the official point of view of The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), the UN office specialized in the protection of life on earth, about the links between climate change, biodiversity and farming.

Fresh Food: what is farm to table? — S494.5.S86 F738 2011x .DVD
The basics of sustainable farming and locally grown foods are explored through the eyes of three chefs who have left big city jobs to grow fresh, healthy ingredients for their gourmet dishes. The video follows the chefs as they establish a farm complete with vegetables, fruits, herbs, chickens, cows, and pigs–and without fertilizers, pesticides, or hormones. After a brief history of American farming, viewers see how the chefs created and market their farm, learn the differences and similarities between sustainable and organic farming, and discover how fresh food travels from farm to table.
