Bite-size session tomorrow

Just a reminder that tomorrow's Bite-size session in the Information Commons is Virtual Collaboration led by Chris Clow.  Working in different places, or at different times? There's some simple tools that can help you work together effectively.

No need to book, just drop in. All sessions are held on Wednesdays in the IC Collaboratory 2 at 12 noon - see the IC blog for a full list of sessions

Sessions are recorded, so if you missed any you can catch up on previous sessions on  Newspaper Databases, Promoting Yourself Online, Getting Stuff Done, and Creating Video

Changes in StarPlus

We are working in the background to improve our library systems.

You can now place a reservation within StarPlus, from the 'Request' tab.

However, to see the total number of copies available of a particular book, you need to click on the 'Details' tab and then the 'This item in classic Star' link on the right hand side. This is a temporary measure until we upgrade further in the next few months.

StarPlus upgrade- Thursday 7th March

Work to integrate account information and renewals and reservations into StarPlus will take place on Thursday 7th March starting at 10.30am. This may last for several hours and there will be some disruption to the service.

It is recommended that you save your eShelf contents to Endnote or another reference service as a precaution. Alternatively you may choose to e-mail your eShelf contents to yourself. 

Every effort will be made to ensure that disruption to services is kept to a minimum.
