Learn a little bit more about Jason in his short biography:

I was born in Chicago, but have called Colorado my home since 1996. I graduated from Colorado State University in 2007 with a BA in English Literature, and again from Metropolitan State University in 2011 with a BA in Journalism. Today, I live in Denver with my wife, Mindi, and our Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, Penny. I’m presently enrolled in the School of Library and Information Management at Emporia State University in the 2017 Denver cohort, and I aspire to work in an academic library to fulfill my dream of never leaving school. Outside of the library, I host a weekly pub quiz for Geeks Who Drink, provide website and marketing support for Cook Street School of Culinary Arts, and am very passionate about certain flavors of La Croix.

EndNote™ – PDF Harvesting Change & New Proxy Setting! November 28th is the Drop Dead Date to change!

EndNote Edit Menu - choose Preferences 2017-05-17Many of you use EndNote to harvest or gather PDFs in your EndNote Library.  It’s a huge time saver when you are trying to collect the articles you need for a grant or manuscript. The library has changed how we are able to do this and you need to update your settings as soon as possible. If you don’t make these changes, your copy of EndNote will stop harvesting PDFs. Our Proxy setting has changed as well – that’s the thing that authenticates you when you are not on campus and trying to harvest PDFs.  Take the time to make this change now, the new settings are already working.

In Endnote PC, go to the “Edit” drop down menu and choose “Preferences“.  For EndNote MAC, you’ll find “Preferences” under the EndNote X8 menu. Once you are in the EndNote Preferences box, make sure you have “Find Full Text” selected.


Check all 4 of the checkboxes.  The “OpenURL Path:” field should be


Copy and paste this into the field or type it very deliberately.  Uppercase matters and must be typed exactly as shown.  Include the “?” at the end.  Please note the URL begins with https.

You only need to fill in the “Authenticate with: URL:” field if you use EndNote when you are off campus.  Even if you use the OIT VPN, you need to configure the “Authenticate with” field.  If you never use EndNote from off campus then you may leave this field blank.  If you are using EndNote remotely, the “Authenticate with: URL” should be


If you need assistance or would like us to help walk you through any of these changes, you can reach the Education & Reference department in the library from 9:00am through 4:00pm at 303-724-2109.

Welcome to Rebecca Schneider

Please welcome Rebecca Schneider, the third new employee to Access Services! She started as a temporary employee on August 9th, and interviewed to stay here at HSL.  Her first official day was October 22, 2017.

Rebecca Schneider

Read her short biography here:

I’m a 5th generation Coloradan and learned to hike before I could crawl. At Regis University, I double majored with a BASc in French and Business, with a minor in Philosophy. For the last two years, I served with the AmeriCorps teaching literacy at an elementary school. Along with serving with the AmeriCorps, I worked at Standley Lake Library. My favorite task at the Standley Lake Library was helping with a program that brought in service dogs that kids would read to. In my spare time, I am usually reading, playing Horizon Zero Dawn, working on home improvement projects, and exploring Colorado for the best “hole in the wall” restaurants.
