Walter Library Computer Policy Changing: Guest Users

| No Comments


This computer policy change will only affect guest users. That is users who are not currently affiliated with the University as students, staff or faculty.

Starting next week (I believe the start date is currently set for Tuesday, July 19) guest users will need to stop at a service desk to sign up for a guest account to use library computers in Walter Library. Guest/Community users will be limited to 2 hours of computer usage a day.

Students, faculty and staff should not encounter any change in their computer using experience here at Walter.

Alumni are considered Guest Users.

Just a heads up on this change in policy.

There are some options (such as subscribing to Special Borrowing Privileges Access Friends of the Library) to gain more access.

Any questions or concerns, please feel free to let me know.

RefWorks 2.0 and RefShare

| No Comments


RefWorks recently launched an updated version, RefWorks 2.0. RefWorks 2.0 is now available to our students, faculty and staff. If you already have a RefWorks Account and want to upgrade it's easy--just click on the RefWorks 2.0 link in the top right of your account screen.


The change is largely cosmetic...changing the RefWorks interface from:




There is also a new feature offered by RefWorks to facilitate collaboration, RefShare. Refshare allows sharing of citations with others regardless of their university affiliation.


Refshare is available now.

The classic interface of RefWorks will eventually go away...once we have an exact timeline I'll share it here. But upgrading will have to occur at some point.

If you have questions about this upgrade or want to learn more about the RefShare feature, please let me know!


The University Libraries recently purchased the online backfile of the conference proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineering going back to the mid-1800s up through the 20th century. That means that these historic Civil Engineering documents are now available to you without coming into the library--you can access them anywhere that you do research, as long as you've linked to the University Libraries through authenticating at www.lib.umn.edu (just like all of our other online resources).

These papers should also appear via FindIt...so if you find one of these articles when searching Engineering Village or Google Scholar you should be able to access the full text by following the FindIt button (FindIt.png).
