The Health Sciences Library (HSL) website will undergo maintenance this Friday, Dec. 15, starting at 10 pm.
The HSL site URL may appear unavailable for approximately 1-2 hours (on campus) or 4-6 hours (off campus).
During the outage, access to online resources will not be affected, as long as you have valid URLs for direct resource access. Bookmark this page for a quick access list.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions about any other specific resources you may need in the Friday late night timeframe.
We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
The HSL online catalog, Search@HSL, has two new features.
The first new feature is the addition of the BrowZine button to the navigation menu. You can access the additional options in the navigation menu by clicking on the ellipses […]:
The BrowZine option is now added for easy use:
If you click on the link, you will be redirected to the BrowZine main webpage that includes the content available from HSL:
BrowZine is a content aggregator that allows patrons to browse the periodical collection. Users can browse the collection by subject, view the contents of journals, connect to the full text if available, export the citation information, create a personal bookshelf of favorite journals if you create an account, and share content through social media. BrowZine also offers an app version, where you can select the HSL library and login with your credentials to use BrowZine on your devices.
The second new feature to Search@HSL is the option ‘Fetch Item’ in the navigation menu has been changed to ‘Citation Linker’.
This option in Search@HSL allows users to find citations for articles, books, and journals.
Users can search for the item and Search@HSL will find the item in the catalog. To get the citation, click on the ‘Citation’ icon under the ‘Send to’ menu of the record, and select the citation type you need. The options are APA, Chicago/Turabian, Harvard, and MLA. Copy the citation and insert into a document.
If the Library Genie granted you three library wishes, what would they be? Now you have the opportunity to let us know!
Submit your three wishes to the library genie today! Your wishes will be anonymous, but if you’d be willing to talk more with us about your wishes you can include your name and e-mail address.
The Library CANNOT accept your UCDenver email address as a user ID. Find your Passport ID (alias) here: https://MyAccount.ucdenver.edu. You’ll need to know your 9-digit student ID number (which is NOT listed on your ID badge for security reasons), your last name, and your date of birth. This site gives you a great dashboard of resources, including your alias/username (Passport ID) and links to other campus websites, including Webmail, Canvas, and the Library. Or you can call the library at 303-724-2132 and ask us to look up your alias for you. Please be prepared to tell us the month and day of your date of birth for verification.
From what we understand, Orientation is telling you to use your UCDenver email address as the username for everything from the UCDAccess Portal to your Webmail. While your email address may get you into most campus resources, the library is an exception. We apologize for the misunderstanding. The good news is, your alias/Passport ID will get you into not only library resources, but Access Portal and Webmail too!
