New Collection: Robert B. Daroff, MD, Professor of Neurology at the School of Medicine at CASE Western Reserve University has generously contributed his collection of instructional video on eye movements. These are digitized from an earlier set of VHS tapes. Each tape is available in its complete form, and is also divided into smaller clips representing distinct topics for a total of 55 video clips. Each clip is available for viewing by streaming video or for download. The clips are available for educational, not for profit use. Credit should be given to Dr. Daroff and NOVEL when used with students or other non-profit educational settings. Minor adjustments are still being made to the collection, but it is ready for use now. http://library.med.utah.edu/NOVEL/Daroff/
Near Completion: Shirley H. Wray, MD, PhD, is nearing completion of her remarkable video collection. As Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School, and former Director of Neurovisual Disorders at Massachusetts General Hospital, Dr. Wray has collected an incredible array of more than 160 patient case videos. As the collection nears its complete state, each case will have a thorough care report included int he description, as well as PowerPoint lectures attached covering individual cases, diseases and diagnoses. These collective materials provide a rich educational resource. The materials are available for educational, not for profit use. Credit should be given to Dr. Wray and NOVEL when used with students or other non-profit educational settings. Minor adjustments are still being made to the collection, but it is ready for use now. http://library.med.utah.edu/NOVEL/Wray/
Database Upgrade: The NOVEL database, CONTENTdm, which hosts the descriptive records linking to the educational resources was recently upgraded. Some minor changes in display are evidence of the upgrade. Otherwise, the records and links should continue to perform as they always have. Please report any oddities.
