For the past three years, the HSHSL has been able to reimburse early-career researchers for half of the publishing fees for articles accepted by entirely open access journals. The program has been very popular, with over 45 awards made.
Happily, funding has been secured to continue the program in FY 24, and applications will again be accepted beginning July 1, 2023. Awards are made to early-career researchers who are listed as the first author in the published article. Early career researchers are defined as students or faculty members with the rank of assistant professor or below. Applicants also agree to submit their article to the UMB Digital Archive.
As July 1 approaches, please visit the Publishing Fund webpage for more information and an application form.

The HSHSL extends a hearty congratulations to the graduating class of 2023! Before you go forth and conquer, we want to remind you of the resources available to you after graduation.

Free Databases: Once your electronic access expires, you will still have access to public databases for literature, drug information, and more. Some examples are highlighted below.

The Health Sciences and Human Services Library (HSHSL), in collaboration with the Medical Alumni Association of the University of Maryland and the UMB Council for the Arts & Culture, will host the exhibit “Transcending Reality” at HSHSL’s Weise Gallery, featuring works by award-winning artist Carol Carpenter.
The exhibit will be on display from April 17 to June 30, with selected works for sale.
About the Artist
Creating works of art encompasses passion, spontaneity, intellect, and self-discovery. Carol Carpenter’s art is meant to “appeal to the senses and heighten the human experience.”
Carpenter is an award-winning artist who has exhibited her abstract paintings in galleries and museums worldwide. She is an intuitive painter who uses “experimental processes and a saturated palette to create vivid works of organic art.”
