Skating at Washington HarborIt's cold out anyway, so why not enjoy winter? Join Healthy Living @ Himmelfarb for ice skating at Georgetown's Washington Harbour on Friday, February 9th at 8 pm.

This ice skating rink is a short walk from GW and is right on the Georgetown waterfront. It’s the largest outdoor rink in the DC area and is even larger than the rink at New York City’s Rockefeller Center. As you skate, you can enjoy Georgetown’s beautiful winter lights; after you skate, you might enjoy one of the many nearby restaurants.

When: Friday, February 9th 8-10 p.m.
Where: Georgetown’s Washington Harbour Ice Skating Rink
Directions from GW: walk north on Virginia Ave and cross Rock Creek Parkway, veer left toward the Potomac and walk a short distance to the rink.
Cost: $12 includes entry fee and skate rental
RSVP: Register now to reserve your space! GW affiliates should register and may bring non-GW affiliates (please include all participants in registration).

If you have questions, please contact Laura Abate (leabate@gwu.edu).

RECALLWhat happens when good info...isn't

Last week, Rosen's Emergency Medicine (9th ed) was removed from ClinicalKey due to several drug dosage errors.  So what happens when errors appear in published works?

Here's how we're managing this issue at Himmelfarb Library:

  • Links to the 9th edition of Rosen's Emergency Medicine now connect to the 8th edition which was made available online once again by the publisher, Elsevier inc.
  • Catalog and e-book links to Rosen's Emergency Medicine now include a note describing the issue and pointing users to the 8th edition.
  • Print copies of the 9th edition were pulled from our stacks, but remain available upon request.  If you would like access, please contact Travis Nace (tnace@gwu.edu).  Corrected print copies will be returned to the shelf as soon as they are received from the publisher
While authors, editors, and publishers make every effort to ensure that accurate information is published, mistakes do sometimes occur.  For insight into how these errors are handled check out:
