Beginning October 1, 2013, articles or book chapters in the library’s print collection will now be free to faculty and staff and no longer count towards the 50 free requests for students. These changes are being made in order to make the library’s print collection more accessible. Currently, the cost to have the library scan an article from the print collection is $3. For students, this service is included in their 50 free requests per year. Please continue to make these requests through the McGoogan Docs system.
These requests are processed Monday through Friday and will be delivered to you on the same or next business day. This free service is available to the faculty, staff, and students of UNMC, The Nebraska Medical Center, Bellevue Medical Center, and Children’s Hospital.
Staff at The Nebraska Medical Center, Bellevue Medical Center, and Children’s Hospital will also no longer be charged for articles in the library’s electronic journal collection. However, delivery of articles may still vary, due to licensing terms.
The computer cluster on the eighth floor of the library will close on September 30th. It will be converted into the temporary home of a developing UNMC Center for e-Learning. Here faculty and their collaborators (including interested students) will be provided with the tools necessary to begin creating new e-Learning materials.
The computer cluster on the 6th floor will remain. Five computers will be added to the cluster, making for 11 workstations. The additional computers will be added in the next few weeks. In addition to these 11 computers, the library also has 16 public computers that can be used by faculty, staff and students for a total of 27 computers on the 6th Floor. Note: These 16 computers are connected to a printer, but if you print, there is a charge.
All other campus computer clusters will continue to be available.
The McGoogan Docs Order Articles system will be unavailable on Friday, August 9 from 8 a.m. until approximately 10 a.m. for a system update. During this time, requests cannot be made, nor articles retrieved. If you have an urgent patient care request, please call the Interlibrary Loan Department at 559-7085 with your request. We apologize for this inconvenience.
Due to technical issues in the Apple app store, the free Micromedex Drug Information app is requiring a password. While this problem is being fixed, a temporary solution has been found.
- Log into Micromedex from the library’s website
- Click on Mobile Micromedex, which is near the upper left-hand corner of the screen
- Scroll down to find the information on the Micromedex Drug Interactions app. The password required for this app should work for the free drug information app.
Micromedex is currently working with the Apple app store to make the free app available again.
