  • “Direct from the Publisher”Titles: Did you know that the Libraries’ receive full-text titles from many publishers and these are available in both GIL & GALILEO? Take a look at SpringerLink, which includes titles from Sense Publishing as well, and Wiley Online Library, both in GALILEO. These book titles will also appear in GIL, but there is usually a lag between when they appear in the database and when they are added to GIL. ScienceDirect provides full text access to scholarly journals published by Elsevier and its subsidiaries. Emerald Full-text in GALILEO provides full-text of articles in management, marketing & library science.

  • Intersession Libraries’ Hours: What’s open when over intersession and the break? Visit the Libraries’ Hours Page for information on the Main & Science Libraries. The CML will have shorter hours beginning December 11th—8:00-5:00pm Monday-Friday & closed Saturdays & Sundays until December 24th and will be completely closed over the break. For the full CML schedule visit the hours page. Please remember that the book drops are open at all the Libraries and materials may be returned to the Curriculum Materials, Main or Science Libraries.

  • “Blind Date with a Book”: The CML is participating in Read, Read, Rudolph which is a fun way to get a book (or more!) to take home during the break. Books are wrapped and some information may be supplied, but mostly the book will be surprise. We have titles from the CML but also from the Main & Science Libraries. Drop in and check it out!

  • RefWorks Login Changes: As of December 9th, 2013 RefWorks users will no longer be required to enter a group code when logging in to their RefWorks account(s) off-campus or outside of their institutional IP range. This improvement comes at the request of numerous RefWorks users and administrators and serves to simplify the RefWorks login process. There are several cases where the group code will still be needed, either temporarily or permanently:

    • Logging In to Your Account

      If you are a current RefWorks user, simply log in to your RefWorks account as you have done in the past. The removal of the group code will not affect how you normally log in to your account.

      New users who do not yet have a RefWorks account must be on-campus (or within a registered IP range for your Institution) or accessing RefWorks through proxy server when initially creating an account. This is so RefWorks can attach the user to a subscription.  Once the new user has set up their account they will be able to log in from any location, with or without proxy authentication, using only the login name and password.

    • Logging in to Write-N-Cite

      The RefWorks development team will be removing the need for the group code when logging in to WNC 4 in an upcoming release.  Until then, users will log in with WNC4 using the current method, either group code/login name/password or with the authentication code.  Use the group code, login name and password or the login code provided after logging into RefWorks on the WNC login page.

  • Lexis-Nexis Interface Changes: The new interface of LexisNexis Academic will be released on Monday, December 23. Below is a list of upcoming webinars on the new interface.
