Library Technology Experience Poll, Pt. 2

LTE2

Do you have an idea for ways the library can improve its computer workstations and laptop docking stations?  How are we doing on providing hardware & software that you use in your everyday work?

From November 13-16, HSL will be conducting a short online poll on our computer commons workstations & other library technology at https://ucdenver.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9QBap83CHTDaTwp . Please take a moment & let us know what you think!

Trying to get your hands on something the library doesn’t have? Try Prospector!

Prospector3

Are you looking for an item HSL doesn’t own? Prospector is a regional union catalog that includes participating libraries within Colorado, as well as the University of Wyoming. This catalog allows patrons to request items from any participating library and have them sent via courier to their local library for pickup. This service is free for all members of participating Prospector libraries.

For students, staff and faculty on the CU Anschutz campus, ordering an item is as easy as going to https://hslibrary.ucdenver.edu/prospector, searching by title or keyword, and then entering your name and student/employee number after selecting ‘Request’. Books and other material (including CDs and DVDs) will be delivered to HSL; we’ll send you an email when your item is ready for pickup. Most items take an average of 3-5 business days to arrive.

Prospector opens up a whole new world of resources- give it a try!

Do you have an idea for ways the library could improve on its delivery of technologies like video & audio conferencing, scanning of print journal articles, & conversion of PDFs?  How are we doing on providing instructions and assistance for the use of our existing technologies?

During the week of October 15-19, HSL will be conducting a short poll on various library equipment & technology at https://ucdenver.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_2nJaMFyROTnv4cB . If you’d prefer, you can drop by the library to fill out a paper copy of the form. Let us know what you think!
