Changes for Fall 2012

I hope you are having a great Summer!  The library is undergoing some changes that will take place soon!  For now you can come to me with your questions but starting with the Fall Semester the Chemistry and Physics Departments will have a new library liaison!  Her name is Hilary Robbeloth.  She is our meta-data librarian in Technical Services and she knows alot about science!!  We are giving her the summer to learn about the Chemistry and Physics Departments so that she can assist you in the Fall.  I hope to introduce her to your departmental liaisons before the beginning of Fall Semester.  As always, if you need assistance with Science Research or library resources you can contact me at Ex. 1519 or email me at cjordan@unf.edu

There are Libguides for Biology, Chemistry and Physics.  These are resource guides the library liaisons create to assist you and your students with research.  Here are the links for these guides:
For Biology: http://libguides.unf.edu/content.php?pid=240490&search_terms=Biology
For Chemistry:  http://libguides.unf.edu/content.php?pid=278231&search_terms=Chemistry
For Physics:  http://libguides.unf.edu/content.php?pid=283794&search_terms=Physics
Please feel free to email with additions or suggestions to these guides!

How many of you are using OneSearch?  It is our discovery tool that helps you find journal articles, newspaper articles, e-books, government documents, UNF library resources and more!  It is a valuable research tool on UNF library page.  I can show your new faculty and students how to utilize OneSearch to find the academic resources they need.  Again just call me at Ex. 1519 or email me at cjordan@unf.edu.

Three long-time librarians will be retiring before the end of this summer.  They are Barbara Tuck, Eileen Brady, and Verna Urbanski.  If you have enjoyed their assistance and want to thank them for their help do it before mid-July.  That is when Barbara will say "goodbye" followed shortly by Eileen and Verna.

I will continue being the library liaison for the Biology Department and will add the Music Department to my liaison duties in the Fall. Thanks to all of you for your suggestions and additions to the library collection!   Have a safe and fun summer!  CJ Jordan
