Personnel Changes at the St. Paul Libraries

Linda Eells, Librarian of the Entomology; Fisheries, Wildlife and Conservation Biology and Forest Resources departments, is transitioning at this week to the Applied Economic Library. We wish her the best in this new position. In the meantime, EFW requests can be submitted to Philip Herold.

Regan Smith, Library Assistant at the Forestry Library is leaving the University to pursuit a career in the arts.

Lastly, Peter Kirlew left us a few months ago for a science librarian position on the east coast. Inquiries related to the biological sciences can also be directed to Philip Herold or Scott Marsalis.

New Magrath Library Website

The newly redesigned website launched today 12/12/11! We hope that you find it easier to navigate and filled with great information about Magrath Library. The links at the very top of the page will take you to the main Libraries website, while the links along the left will take you to Magrath-specific information. All pages from our former site will redirect to the new home page: http://www.lib.umn.edu/magrath . Be sure to update your bookmarks.

New Inter-Library Loan Procedures

The new procedure requires that you log in to ILLiad using your University of Minnesota Internet ID, also known as your email/directory/X.500 username or user ID (the part before the @ of a U of M email address).

If you registered with a personal username (non-U of M Internet ID), you need to complete a new registration using your U of M Internet ID. ILL staff will then merge the new account with your previous account; your request history will remain viewable. Please note, re-registering will not delay your interlibrary loan request. Continue to registration.

If you use your U of M Internet ID as your ILLiad username, you do not need to re-register. Continue to login.

Proxy card holders: you do not need to re-register.

New users, please register using your U of M Internet ID as your username.
