What's New in Google Apps

New Apps are coming to the University's Google Domain on Thursday, July 21: Books, Bookmarks, News, Reader and Maps.

Google Books

Search the latest index of the world's books. Find millions of great books you can preview or read for free. Go to the Google eBookstore for over 3 million eBooks to read on the Web, Android, iPhone, iPad, Sony and Nook.

Google Bookmarks

Access your Google bookmarks from any computer by saving shortcuts to your favorite webpages. Unlike browser bookmarks that are stored on a single computer, Google bookmarks are stored in your Google Account. This means you can access them from any computer with an Internet connection from the Google Bookmarks homepage.

Google News

Google News is a computer-generated news site that aggregates headlines from news sources worldwide, groups similar stories together, and displays them according to each reader's personalized interests.

Google Reader

Google Reader is a tool for gathering, reading, and sharing all the interesting blogs and websites you read on the web.

Google Maps

Google Maps is a map service that you view in your web browser. You can view basic or custom maps and local business information, including business locations, contact information, and driving directions. Click and drag maps to view adjacent sections immediately. View satellite images of your desired location that you can zoom and pan.

ImageNow Unavailable July 21-24

ImageNow, the University's comprehensive imaging and document management system, will be upgraded by central OIT to take advantage of new features and bug fixes. ImageNow will be unavailable from Thursday, July 21 through Sunday, July 24.

You may monitor updates during the upgrade through OIT's System Status page.

New Desktop Client

Desktop client users will need to use a new version of the client.

The new client will be deployed automatically to CLA users by CLA-OIT. You may or may not visibly see the ImageNow installer at work. Please do not click cancel or close any installer pop-up windows or the new client will not be installed properly.

Contact the CLA-OIT Service Desk at 4-help or 4help@umn.edu if you experience any issues with the upgraded client.

Web Client

ImageNow users who use the web application (WebNow) will not need to take any action as a result of this upgrade.

Steve Hanson Leaving CLA-OIT

Steve Hanson will be leaving CLA-OIT on August 1, 2011. He will be moving to Denver to be closer to mountains, milder winters, and a chance to have an office with a window.

Steve has been with CLA-OIT for seven years. He held positions as student worker, department technician, programmer and business analyst. In all of these positions, he was valued not only for his considerable technical skills but also for his dedication to users and attention to their needs. Most recently a large portion of his work has been in CLA Intersections design and development. He will be sorely missed by both his colleagues and his many happy users.
