The Search HSL discovery system URL has changed from
Search HSL serves as the library’s catalog as well as discovery system, providing one-stop searching for journal articles, books and e-books, videos, anatomical models and more. It is also the linking system (aka OpenURL resolver) for CU Anschutz users who may be using citation databases (like Pubmed) to get to the full text of journal articles from publishers such as ScienceDirect and NEJM.
Links on the library home page to Search HSL have already been changed, but if you have bookmarks or third party applications that may be using the old URL, be sure to get it changed. The old URL will still work for a short period of time however, starting Saturday Jan. 10 it may begin to be more difficult to use due to an expiring SSL certificate.
We have made Adobe Creative Suite 6, including Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign available on our iMac number P19 in the Information Commons of the library. Although this is an older version of Adobe Suite, we hope it will still be of use to students working on projects here in the library.
In other news, we have also updated Adobe Photoshop Elements to the latest version (2019) on the four PC scanner workstations located in the Commons.
Check out our Computer Workstations web page to see a list of all the software offered for CU Denver affiliated users in our library’s first floor Information Commons.
Click screenshot image to install Lean Library browser plugin
What if : no matter where you are, your browser was smart enough to log you in to the library’s proxy server whenever needed, in order to get to licensed content? That “what if” is now!
With the Lean Library browser plugin installed, you’ll be able to “Roam Free” as you do your research. Like Nature journals? Start your research at Nature.com. If you don’t have a current proxy session with HSL, you’ll be prompted automatically to start one. Like NEJM? Start out at The New England Journal of Medicine. Do you always start with Pubmed? Lean Library will automatically modify your starting URL so that HSL’s Article Linker full text checker appears with citations in Pubmed.
