Library Inventory

From June 4 to June 8 the staff of the Pumerantz Library will be performing inventory. This will involve the staff checking each book on the library shelves, as such there will be an increase in the noise in the library. Staff will do their best to keep this noise to a minimum. 

Thank you for your understanding.

New Dentistry E-books

You asked, we listened!  
After surveying CDM, the majority of the student body would prefer that the library purchase e-books instead of print books.  As a result, the library has focused on adding more e-books to the collection this semester.  We have just added a number of new online dentistry books.  

These titles and more can be accessed on the Dentistry Research Guide:

Basic Guide to Orthodontic Dental Nursing
Biostatistics for Oral Healthcare
Bone Grafting Techniques for Maxillary Implants
Cysts of the Oral and Maxillofacial Regions 4e
Dental Reception and Practice Management
Essentials of Traumatic Injuries to the Teeth – A step-by-step treatment guide 2e
Fundamentals of Esthetic Implant Dentistry 2e
Implant Restorations: A Step-by-Step Guide, 2nd Edition,
Managing Health and Safety in the Dental Practice- A Practical Guide
Manual of Minor Oral Surgery for the General Dentist
Osseointegration and Dental Implants
Practical Advanced Periodontal Surgery
Protocols for Predictable Aesthetic Dental Restorations

Studying for the Boards?  Don’t forget that we also have First Aid for the NBDE Part 1 & First Aid for the NBDE Part 2 available electronically also! 

Of course, we are still adding core titles in print, such as:

Dissection Manual for Dental Students
Practical osseous surgery in periodontics and implant dentistry
Whole-body dentistry : a complete guide to understanding the impact of dentistry on total health

Publishing Assistance

Want to publish, but don’t where?  We can help!  

The library has Journal Citation Reports that can assess the impact factors of various journals in the sciences.  We can help to research whether the journal is discoverable in a major research database like PubMed, Embase or etc.  Interested in Open Access or complying with NIH Public Access Policy?  We can help investigate whether a particular journal is Open Access and how a particular journal publisher complies with the NIH Public Access Policy.  Need help?  Contact us at or call/chat us!
