On June 12, the Dartmouth College Library is transitioning to a new catalog system. We do not expect this change to substantially affect our users, though you will notice that the interface to search for books looks different. However, once the migration is complete any bookmarked links to your library account, the library catalog search, or specific journal or book records will no longer work and will need to be updated. DartDoc, Borrow Direct, and links directly into databases are not affected. By the end of the week of the June 12, a new catalog search box should be visible on the Biomedical Libraries website that you can use to search for items and update your bookmarked links.

Preliminary evidence from a new national Dartmouth study suggests that external food cue responsiveness is measurable by parental report in preschool-age children.
