 Effectiveness of Antimicrobials in the Treatment of Neonatal Diarrhea in Calves: A protocol for a Systematic Review and Meta-analysis. Authors:  Bernal Cordoba, Erik Davis Fausak, N. Silva del Rio


Background:Neonatal diarrhea affects nearly 25% of pre-weaned calves. Prevention through management practices is the preferable approach to control diarrhea. Once calves experience diarrhea, fluids, electrolytes and acid-base balance need to be restored. Severe cases of diarrhea should be treated with antimicrobials but the need of antimicrobials in mild and moderate clinical cases it is still under debate.

Objectives:The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of antimicrobial treatments or the comparative efficacy of antimicrobials treatments in calves with mild, moderate and severe diarrhea.

Design: The search strategy will be based on population (calves with diarrhea), and intervention (antimicrobial therapy). The following data bases will be used: Medline, CAB abstracts, Scopus, and Biosis. The outcomes of interest will be the occurrence and persistence of clinical signs of diarrhea, rate of growth, weight gain, feed efficiency or mortality.

LEF: An Index


LEF, or Zhurnal levogo fronta iskusstv, was the main organ (1924-1928) of the Left Front for the Arts (1922-1929), an outgrowth of the avant-garde strain of early Soviet culture spearheaded by Russian Futurism.  Its aim included advancing Russian Futurism, as well as developing what was known as "literatura fakta." LEF’s first editor-in-chief was Vladimir Majakovskij, and other regular contributors included writers and critics such as Viktor Shklovskij, Osip Brik, Boris Kushner, Boris Arvatov, Nikolaj Chizhak, Sergej Tret'jakov, Semen Kirsanov, and Nikolaj Aseev.  LEF published the work of a number of Soviet (and foreign) writers, including Boris Pasternak, Andrej Kruchenyx, Isaak Babel', etc., as well as artists, designers, and filmmakers such as Aleksandr Rodchenko (LEF's artistic director), Varvara Stepanova, Anton Lavinskij, Lev Kuleshov, Dziga Vertov, Esfir' Shub, Sergej Ejzenshtejn, etc.  The first complete electronically accessible table of contents for every issue of LEF follows.  Unless otherwise noted, A. M. Rodchenko was responsible for the layout and design for the journal throughout its run.

E-Science Day


Held on December 6, 2011, E-Science Day was a day-long event, funded by the National Network of Libraries of Medicine Pacific Southwest Region (NN/LM PSR). Available in a blended format (i.e. via in-person attendance and via webinar), the proceedings of the event were recorded for archival purposes.

The objectives guiding the planning of the event were: to educate regional librarians in e-science, and to expose regional librarians to information and resources designed to encourage the initiation of e-science support projects within their own libraries and institutions. The event programming featured keynote and panel presentations from experts in topics pertinent to e-science, as well as a lightning round session with presentations detailing real-life applications of e-science-related projects and initiatives. Following this educational portion, event attendees were then divided into break-out groups for the interactive/think-tank portion of the day. Each group had a set of questions to address, while the group facilitator recorded the notes that were then presented after all attendees reconvened. The intended outcome from these break-out groups and reconvening was to come up with ideas that the NN/LM PSR could pursue in future support of e-science activities among regional members. Upon completion of the event, several ideas were noted by the NN/LM PSR to be considered in future e-science planning.
