The Library has thousands of journals on the health sciences. Many of them focus narrowly on subdisciplines. But we also have the big names, such as these:
JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association)
BMJ (British Medical Journal)
The library now provides access to Mergent Archives, a database that provides essential political, economic and commercial information for evaluating risks and opportunities on over 130 countries worldwide.
Mergent Archives consist of three reports: DnB Country Risk Profile, DnB Country Risk Report, and Mergent Country Profiles. Together, these reports provide in-depth analysis to assist in monitoring international markets, help to identify changes in business risk, and provide detailed analysis of a country’s prospects in the short to medium term. Each report presents data in a clear and consistent format, facilitating comparison.
For more information, please contact your Business Librarian, Leslie Farison.

A new exhibit, “Memories from Childhood: Our Favorite Christmas Stories,” is now on display in Special Collections on the 4th Floor of Belk Library and Information Commons. The display draws on children’s literature relating to Christmas from the Historical Children’s Literature rare book collection and the W.L. Eury Appalachian Collection, both part of Special Collections. Special Collections staff and Dougherty Reading Room reference students chose their favorites from the collections for the exhibit. Included are a first edition of A Charlie Brown Christmas, Gloria Houston’s The Year of the Perfect Christmas Tree, and a book of traditional Christmas songs illustrated by H.A. Rey, known for his “Curious George” series.
