Hello! Welcome to Fall 2011 @ USF

Please accept my tardy welcome back to USF! We're gonna rock this semester at the Reference Desk.

A few things...

1) Kelci is back in her old spot in Government Documents, so swing by her cube if you need to chat.

2) Please welcome our two new student assistants, TJ and Alison! Welcome, we're really happy you're on board.

3) We've added some cool stuff over the summer: this thing called Fusion (to test drive it, click here), RefWorks, and Scopus. We'll talk about these new databases/services at our annual Meet-n-Greet...

4) The annual Meet-n-Greet, where we re-acquaint ourselves, have some fun, and learn a couple things, will be held mid-September after the library launches Fusion... so stay tuned!

5) Over the summer we did a bit of a shift in the Reference Collection, so you may notice that some books are in different places than they used to be. Soon Kelci will update the markers on the end of each row to reflect the accurate call number ranges.

6) We have a new way of collecting statistics on questions we get at the Reference Desk. Remember our old tally sheet? Well we're going digital! The new way to record these statistics is through a website called Gimlet. You can access it with this URL: https://usfca.gimlet.us/users/login Please let Kelci know if you need a login for Gimlet still.

7) Last but not least... our favorite task... shelf reading! With a new semester comes a fresh start on shelf reading. Today Vicki started at the beginning of the Reference Collection. Everyone except TJ and Alison should be doing shelf reading for 15-30 minutes per shift as time allows. So please take the initiative and shelf read some books!

Thanks guys!
