World Bank Data and Research: Opening the Vault

Free Webcast Event! World Bank Data and Research: Opening the Vault

DATE: Wednesday, June 15, 2011   |   TIME: 1–2 PM EDT   |   REGISTER FREE TODAY

 

The World Bank was the first international, inter-governmental organization to make its databases free and open to the public. As the World Bank moves forward with this initiative and, in turn, its mission to eliminate global poverty, libraries will play an increasingly more important role in reaching new communities; communicating the value of these public goods; and encouraging further use of these timely and relevant resources on global issues.

Please join Library Journal‘s Cheryl LaGuardia and World Bank staff members as they discuss the wealth of resources and research tools available from the Bank, including new developments on the World Bank Open Data portal, the World Bank eAtlas of Global Development, and World Bank eLibrary.

  • The World Bank’s Open Data initiative began on April 20, 2010, and since then has been accessed by over three million unique users. See a demo of the free site and its more than 7,000 development indicators.
  • Born from the World Bank’s Open Data, the eAtlas of Global Development helps visualize the world’s most pressing development challenges through mapping, charting, and graphing of data.
  • The World Bank eLibrary is the World Bank’s full-text collection of more than 6,000 books, reports, journals, and other documents on social and economic development. This session will introduce updates to this tool, and provide a demo on how to get the most out of its features.

Topics in dental biochemistry / Martin Levine.

D 617.617 L66

It provides the necessary basic scientific background for a clearer understanding of bone, tooth, saliva, and surrounding soft tissue research and also for an appreciation of how dental caries and periodontal disease might be better diagnosed and controlled in the future. Dentistry was developed to treat dental caries, but since the early 20th century it has increasingly been treating periodontal, traumatic and genetic diseases affecting tooth structure and attachment. Fluoridation is discussed at length. Other methods for controlling dental caries and new or suggested methods for controlling oral hygiene and periodontal disease are also discussed.

 

Antibiotics and antiseptics in periodontal therapy / Alexandrina L. Dumitrescu.

D 617.664 D88

This book is an encyclopedic collection of data from scientific papers and textbooks that form a sound basis for a thorough understanding of the antibiotics and antiseptics used in periodontal therapy. After an introductory chapter on dental plaque as a microbial film, the various pathogens that may be responsible for periodontal disease are examined. The prophylactic, systemic, and topical uses of antibiotics are then discussed in detail.

 

Oral and maxillofacial radiology: a diagnostic approach / David MacDonald.

D 617.6622 M13

Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology is logically organized, beginning with the basics of radiological diagnosis before discussing each of the advanced imaging modalities in turn. Modalities discussed include helical and cone-beam computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, positron emission tomography, and ultrasonography. Later chapters cover radiological pathologies of the jaw, and also those of the head and neck immediately outside the oral and maxillofacial region.  Written by a recognized expert in the field, Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology contains a multitude of clinical images, practical examples, and flowcharts to facilitate differential diagnosis.

Professional guide to pathophysiology

D 616.07 P964

Professional Guide to Pathophysiology, Third Edition, combines the best of a diseases reference with the best of a full-color atlas in one clinical reference for every practice setting. This comprehensive guide focuses on the pathophysiologic developments behind more than 400 disorders across all body systems, so the practitioner fully understands the pathophysiologic rationale behind focused assessments, behind patient signs and symptoms, behind the kinds of tests that are done, and behind the treatments that are given. Now in full color throughout, the book features hundreds of illustrations depicting anatomical structures and pathophysiological processes, as well as scores of informative tables and flowcharts.

 

 

4D implant therapy : esthetic considerations for soft tissue management / Akiyashi Funato, Tomohiro Ishikawa.

D 617.674 F97

The aim of this book is to introduce this new 4D concept for esthetic implant therapy and to re-examine the traditional treatment sequence of implant therapy so that practitioners and patients can achieve predictable and esthetically pleasing treatment outcomes. The importance of including patients and their individual needs and goals in treatment planning is emphasized, as is the preservation of alveolar bone, dentition, function, and esthetics over the long term through the proper execution of periodontal treatment. Topics include immediate implant placement in extraction sockets, extraction socket preservation, root submergence techniques, ridge augmentation, and soft tissue management in the esthetic region.
