Issue: 2019 - 7

July is the heart of the summer, the vacation month along with August. But July is also an important milestone for humankind: the launch of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon on July 16, 1969. Neil Armstrong stepped into history July 20, 1969 by leaving the first human footprint on the surface of the moon.

For us in the Library, July is a month when we are less busy in user numbers but more active in finishing projects and be prepared for the upcoming Academic year.

In this issue we give you a quick view of a special collection in ANAMED Library, we inform you about the latest CiteScore metrics to discover more titles in your discipline and publish your research in the right journals and a brief idea of our recent GIS course.

We hope you have a wonderful and relaxing month. Enjoy your vacation!
