Milestone Mondays: Study Zone Demo Completed

Monday June 19. 2017. Library Study Zone remodeling proceeds smoothly and spacious future floor plan begins to take shape.

View from the north end looking south, 2nd floor area construction demolition completed

The week ending June 16 brought to close a major milestone in construction and remodeling up on the second floor of the Health Sciences Library. Contractors completed the demolition of nearly five thousand square feet on the far north end of HSL’s second floor. The construction team successfully removed all journal stacks, original ceiling, light fixtures, counters, carpet tiles and much more. With the area torn down and apart, the process continues to start building!

Students using the library this summer can be seen more and more wearing noise cancelling headphones during this disruptive but exciting period. The completion of demolition marks a milestone on the road to future success. Anschutz students looking for more study rooms in the library and a study area offering sharp focus for intense and long-term work periods will not be disappointed later this year in October. The completed space will have great natural lighting and vibrant colors to keep you awake. The Study Zone will have a kitchenette area, two energy nap pods, seating for over a 100 users (prior seating in area was 25), and creative & diverse furniture options for different quiet-study modes. Stay tuned for more news as things develop.

Before (May 2017) Journal stacks in the area prior. All moved to PASCAL on campus.

 

After (June 2017) Demolition and deconstruction finished.

 

The library will add updates to this news blog, post weekly on Facebook about progress, and we continue to host a board display in the first floor lobby of the library to keep the community informed with a visual timeline and other drawings from the project.

Going forward after demolition, framing of rooms and new walls begins — studs arrive. If you like photos of the action, follow us on Facebook for weekly posts and pics. See the FB photo archive labeled ‘2nd Floor Study Zone & Renovation 2017 HSL’.

The future Study Zone at HSL is not quite “club med” but the amenities and design will support success by providing an inviting place with a rejuvenating ambiance to get your study on and focus in relative quiet.

Configure Google Scholar for the new SearchHSL Article Linker

As part of the transition to our new system (SearchHSL) for searching and linking to articles, you may need to change your settings in Google Scholar in order to stop linking to the old Article Linker, which will no longer work as of May 31st.

Here is how to change your institutional settings:

  1. After searching in Google Scholar (make sure you are signed in to your Gmail account), click on the button with the small triangle in the upper right corner:2. Click on “Settings”
    3. Click on “Library Links”:
    4. Search for our library using the word “Anschutz.” Select University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus – Full-Text at CU Anschutz. Click Save.

    5. Un-check University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, Health Scien – Full Text @ CU Anschutz. This goes to the old Article Link that will stop working May 31st. Click Save.

EndNote™ – PDF Harvesting Changes! June 1st 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 this change, your copy of EndNote will stop harvesting PDFs on June 1st.  Take the time to make this change now, the new URL is already working.

In Endnote, go to the “Edit” drop down menu and choose “Preferences”.

In the EndNote Preferences box, make sure you have “Find Full Text” selected.

EndNote Find-Full-Text-box-2017-05-17

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

https://primo.hsl.ucdenver.edu/openurl/01UCOHS/01UCOHS?

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 are trying to harvest or gather PDFs when you are not on campus. If you only use EndNote on campus you don’t need to populate this field.  If you are using it, it should be

https://hsl-ezproxy.ucdenver.edu/login

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.
