Whenever I go to the public library, I go straight to the magazines section. As an old English major, I used to read lots of books, but nowadays I read more magazines. I have myriad interests like cooking, military history, interior design, just to name a few.
THI is a research library, so we don’t carry Cooking Light or National Geographic, but we do subscribe to many prestigious cardiovascular journals. Whatever piques your interest in cardiovascular research—surgery, transplantation, electrophysiology, or echocardiography, for example—we probably subscribe to the leading journals in those areas of specialization.
We have print subscriptions to about 40 journals, including the American Heart Journal, the Annals of Thoracic Surgery, Circulation, the European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery, the Journal of Vascular Surgery, and Transplantation. We also subscribe to major medical journals like the New England Journal of Medicine, The Lancet and the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). We have online access to most, and to more than 7,000 other electronic publications available through The TMC Library.
A few journals are exclusive to us and not available from The TMC Library: Canadian Journal of Cardiology, The Heart Surgery Forum, The Journal of Cardiovascular Surgery, Operative Techniques in Thoracic & Cardiovascular Surgery, Seminars in Thoracic & Cardiovascular Surgery, Pediatric Cardiac Surgery Annual, and Vascular. Three journals are also electronic. [Click on the image to link directly.]
You’ll see the latest issues of most of our journals displayed in front of the Circulation Desk. No Vanity Fair or Sports Illustrated, but I bet you’ll find something interesting. And, of course, we can help you find the latest published research. Just ask any staff member for assistance in locating a journal article, either in print or electronically. — Gregg
