Research & Reference Services,
The spring 2008 library open workshop schedule is now available. The workshops feature short, free, one-session instruction on a variety of topics, ranging from How to Use Your Library to advanced Lexis Nexis Searching. Graduate students can gain advice on Reinvigorating Your Research while faculty can learn Who's Citing You and Where Should You be Cited. All workshops other than How to Use Your Library require advanced registration. For more information, visit the Open Workshop Schedule.
Beginning January 4, the M.D. Anderson Library will start moving the TX Documents and US Documents to their new home in the compact shelving system. They will be housed in the ranges located adjacent to the Shelving Dept., on the north side of the basement. We anticipate the complete move to take a few weeks. Appropriate signage for the new sections is forthcoming. All materials will be fully accessible during the move process.
UH M.D. Anderson Librarians are now available to answer your research questions via online chat! The new chat reference service is available Monday through Thursday, 3pm to 8pm. Send an IM message using AIM, GoogleChat, or Yahoo Messenger to UHLibrarian or visit our Ask a Librarian page to chat on our library website.
The UH Libraries has launched a new web site designed to make it easier to use the Libraries' services and to better provide the reliable service you have come to expect. Featured on this new web site is a one-stop search box, research tutorials, subject specific research assistance, and pages designed specifically to highlight services of interest to faculty, graduate students and undergraduates. The web pages for our branch libraries have also been updated to highlight their specific services and resources.
Please note that the new site has been designed to perform best with the latest web browsers (Internet Explorer 7+, Firefox 2+, or Netscape 9+) and typical user screen resolution (1024 x 768 or higher).
We are always open to your comments and suggestions and hope you will use the Comments and Suggestion Form to send your feedback to us. We will be adding exciting features to the new web page over the course of the Fall semester and changing things based user feedback.
Interlibrary Loan users who normally request materials via WorldCat should be aware that we are still experiencing problems with the transfer of citation information from WorldCat to ILLiad. Technical support is working on the problem and we hope to have it resolved soon.
If you have any questions, please contact Lee Andrew Hilyer, Coordinator of ILL Services, at x3-9721 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Apologies for the inconvenience.
