Improved Proxy Access for Queen's Faculty
Coming soon! A new type of proxy access via VPN will be provided to Queen's faculty to allow for improved remote access to all of Queen's Library resources. Watch your email for a message from the Head of Bracken Library, Suzanne Maranda, with information about this change and how to take advantage of it.
Changes to Literature Search Results and Document Delivery for Queen's Faculty, Staff and Graduate Students
In order to better serve Queen's Faculty, Staff and Graduate Students, Bracken Library is making some changes to how we send our literature search results, and how we deliver electronic articles. Beginning in January, search results will be sent to Queen's users via a shared RefWorks folder, rather than as a typed list of references. Please note that you do not need to have a RefWorks account in order to access these shared folders.
By giving you the results in this format we are providing you with the means to get faster access to the items you want. A "Get it at Queen's" link will appear beside each reference in your search results. By clicking on that link, you can immediately determine whether a given item is available through the Queen's Library (either electronically or in print). If the item is available electronically, the link to the full text will be provided. If Queen's Library does not own the item, you can either link to the online form to order it from Bracken Library, or return this email with the shared folder link to the librarian, indicating which articles you want us to retrieve for you.
If you do have a RefWorks account, you can import references from this shared folder into your own folder(s). Whether or not you have a RefWorks account, you can generate a bibliography of your references. For instructions or assistance in creating a bibliography, or in setting up your own RefWorks account, please contact the Bracken Reference Desk at 613-533-3176 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be advised that effective January 3, 2011, the Bracken Library staff will no longer routinely print articles ordered by or for Queen's users if they are available online at Queen's. You will normally receive a link to the online full text article. We therefore encourage you to use the Get It links, whenever these are available, to locate these online articles yourself, and request from the Library any other articles needed.
