 What Can We Track Down for You?

We have tracked down 964 articles in the past 12 months; everything from out-of-copyright articles from the year 1848 to ahead-of-print electronic articles on cutting-edge research.

No more wasted hours searching for articles

We have a quick turnaround of less than 2 business days (sometimes considerably less). And if an article will take longer to obtain, we will let you know right away.

No fees

We do this at no cost through our connection to the TMC Library collections and inter-library loan service that gives access to hundreds of additional libraries across the country.

You should never pay the publisher for an article! We are happy to do all the work for you, or show you how to place your own requests. Just send me or Rebecca an e-mail with your list. We are here to save you time and money.



Browse Your Favorite Journals on Your Mobile Device

Browzine-snapshot-webSometimes I go a little app crazy. My poor smartphone is overloaded with apps, most of which I hardly ever use. But every time I see a new or interesting one I download it anyway, adding to the mess!

That’s why I love the BrowZine app. It allows you to view multiple journals all in one place, instead of downloading an app for each journal.

Use it on your iPhone, iPad, Android device, or Kindle Fire.

  • Browse and read thousands of journals by subject
  • Review tables of contents and download full articles
  • Create a personal bookshelf with space for up to 64 journals
  • Save up to 500 articles
  • Receive alerts when new issues are available

Download the BrowZine app, create an account and then select the Texas Medical Center Library as your University Library. You will need to enter your remote access ID and password to access all TMC Library journals—if you haven’t set up your TMC Library account yet, ask us for help. To sync across multiple devices you will need to enter an e-mail address.



Don't Be Shy: Meet the THI Social Media Team
THI Social Media links

Have you seen all the little thumbnails at the bottom of THI e-mails and on the website? Click on them! There’s great social media stuff going on that will interest all of our THI community.

THI news is shared on Facebook and LinkedIn. Ken Hoge especially loves posting photos to Facebook on Throwback Thursday. If you haven’t liked THI yet on Facebook - do it now!

The THI website, itself, is a great resource for heart health information and news about the latest accolades earned by faculty and staff. Contact the newest member of the team, Joanne Salt, to update your section of the website. Welcome, Joanne!

You can also find the latest Straight Talk from Dr. Coulter at the Center for Women's Heart and Vascular Health and Heart to Heart from our president, Dr. Willerson, on the website. Better yet, sign up for E-News to get them e-mailed directly to you.

Check out THI on Twitter or Google+ for daily heart health news updates. You don’t even need an account to look and see what Sonya is finding in the news.... but if you do have one, follow us.

If you are looking for craft, workout, or recipe inspiration, heart health lesson plans, or places to see in Houston - check out THI on Pinterest. Send Rebecca your favorite heart-healthy recipes to see them on our Pinterest page!

THI is also on Flickr and YouTube. When new content gets posted to these two sites, you’ll see links on Facebook and the website – yet another reason to “like” THI on Facebook.

We are proud that rated THI among the Top 50 Social Media Friendly Hospitals in the country last year. Our social media following is growing daily.

Next time there’s something interesting going on in your department that you’d like to share with THI or the world, let Keri Kimler or Frank Michel know.

Hope to see you online!

Note from Our Favorite Razorback
GreggTea_webWe want to wish Gregg Doty well, and let you all know that he has moved to Arkansas to accept a position at the University of Central Arkansas Library where he is settling in. He reports that he misses the heat (which we doubt), and that he has already found a superior grocery store where he can stock up on everything from his favorite mint green tea to beans and veggies for his soups all in one trip. 

Here are some recipes for variations on gazpacho that we think he would have recommended for you if he were still writing for our newsletter.

-Sonya and Rebecca

P.S. If you know of anyone interested in libraries or medicine we’d love to meet them! We have reshelving and other library projects that would be a fun volunteer opportunity for someone with a few hours a week to give.
