Double-sided printing!

The Veterinary Medicine Library’s copier/scanner now functions as a printer, too!  Not only does this give us a backup if our main printer is down*, but it gives you the option to make double-sided printouts.

To print to the copier/scanner, select it at your computer from the Print screen of the application you’re printing from.  (Its name is vet-hp4345).  PrintProperties

It doesn’t print 2-sided by default, so you’ll need to select that option from the Printer Properties.

Send your print job, then select Print Release from the copier/scanner’s screen.


Select your print job and press Print.  Don’t press Print All unless you want to pay for everyone’s print jobs!

*In other good news, the main printer has stopped stealing people’s money!

Update to RefWorks Write-N-Cite


The new Write-N-Cite interface in Word.

There is a new and truly improved version of the RefWorks Write-N-Cite plugin for Word. The new Write-N-Cite is very fast and intuitive. It integrates RefWorks functionality into Word with its own tab. Users can format citations in real-time, insert a bibliography and let it update in real time, too. You can even edit your citations right in Word, and they’ll update in your RefWorks database. If you use RefWorks on your PC or Mac, log into RefWorks to download the new Write-N-Cite plugin from the Tools menu.

New library computers

New Vet Med ComputersAll thirteen of the Veterinary Medical Library’s public computers have been replaced!  The new machines are faster, smaller (giving you more room to work), and include new widescreen monitors.  These computers all have functioning sound cards, too, so you can view video tutorials in the library (please supply your own earphones.)

How many times has this happened: you’re off campus, catching up on your reading, when you follow a link to an article and see this:

Fee for article


Of course you can log in through the Library’s web site, but now there’s a quicker way.  The OSU Libraries Off-Campus Sign-In bookmarklet will let you authenticate with the click of a button, getting you past those pesky paywalls quickly.

New Global Health Database

The OSU Libraries have purchased access to the CABI Global Health database.  Global Health indexes and abstracts publications in the biomedical sciences and public health, in fields including epidemiology, environmental health, nutrition and food sciences, animal health, and more.  Coverage ranges from 1910 to the present, and includes selected full text.

Global Health is included on the CAB Direct platform, so its contents will be searched by default when you use the CAB Abstracts.
