ORCID has launched!

ORCID, Open Researcher and Contributor ID, is now live! ORCID is a unique identifier to distinguish YOU from other researchers with similar name. Link all of your work together (articles, datasets, etc.) — whether you were published as Truman Tiger or T Tiger.

Find out more: http://about.orcidid.com/

“ORCID is an open, non-profit, community-based effort to provide a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers.  ORCID is unique in its ability to reach across disciplines, research sectors, and national boundaries and its cooperation with other identifier systems.”

New Books!

Want to see what’s new in the library? Check out our (new) New Books List!

You’ll see new print books, new electronic books, and new “purchase on demand” titles.

What’s purchase on demand? Due to impending shortfalls in our collection budget, we are investigating new ways to ensure that the books we purchase are needed and used by our campus community.

In the MERLIN library catalog, you may run across some titles that say: “Request the library order this book.” You’ll be asked to login with your Username so we can notify you once the book has been purchased and is available. We expect that most books will arrive within 2-3 weeks.

We’ve also pre-loaded some electronic books into the MERLIN catalog. Click on the e-book and it will open instantly just like any other ebook. An official purchase will be made behind the scenes.

What is Open Access?

Have you ever wondered just what Open Access really is?  Here’s an 8-minute video, brought to you by the PhD Comics folks: http://www.openaccessweek.org/video/open-access-explained-by-phd-comics.
