Fogler Library Scavenger HuntEncourage your students to stop by the library or go online to participate in our Spring Scavenger Hunt, to be held Jan. 30-Feb. 3. The tasks can be done at students’ own pace, remotely or in-person, and will familiarize them with our space and resources. If they complete the scavenger hunt, they’ll be entered into a drawing for Book Store gift cards. For more information about participating, send them to our Workshop Series page, or contact Lindsay Decker.

Featured Resource: URSUS Proxy Bookmarklet

The UMS Libraries Proxy Bookmarklet allows patrons to quickly and easily access restricted journal articles and ebooks discovered on a publisher’s website while conducting research on the open Internet. When you are prompted for a login, or hit a paywall, the proxy bookmarklet will reload the page through the University’s proxy server and return you back to your journal site as an authenticated user, assuming your campus library has access to that particular resource.
