Symphony of Science: The Unbroken Thread
Working off-campus and need library resources?
Most of our databases now allow you to generate an automatic ILL request. However if you need to request a book or material not from a database, you can do so here.
Five things you NEEDed to do this September!
Meet your librarian (that's me Jen >)
At Acadia each academic department has a liaison librarian to assist students and faculty. Librarians are assigned departments based on their educational background, experience and interest. We encourage you to find your librarian via email, chat or in person to find out about the library services and resources available to you. Find yours at: http://library.acadiau.ca/about/librarians.html. As well, Acadia has partnered with Novanet to provide extended chat reference services through LiveHelp: http://library.acadiau.ca/help/.
Set up your Network Account
In order to access the library resources available electronically, you must have your network access setup and you need to be on the secure wireless signal (acadia, not Acadia Open). The most common problems are surrounding usernames and passwords. You can check to make sure your account has been set-up properly by going to: https://central.acadiau.ca/accounts/. Follow the steps until you have all green check marks. If you still cannot log on your next step would be to contact Technical Support for further assistance: http://ts.acadiau.ca/index.php Network Access and Wireless
Register for Interlibrary Loan/Doc Delivery
If we don't have the book or article you need, we can get it for you! InterLibrary Loan is an essential service provided for Acadia students, faculty and staff. If there are books or journal articles you would like to use Acadia will request the items from libraries that are willing to lend the material. Articles will be delivered directly to you via email with a onetime download link. Go to http://library.acadiau.ca/services/ILL/ to register now.
Setup your printer
There are printers available on campus, one in the library and two in Technology Services (colour and black and white). Installing the printer can take a few minutes, so be sure to install the library printer on your laptop early in the term. Please note that students using home editions of Windows may have issues with retaining saved passwords and may have to reinstall. Instructions vary depending on the type of computer you are using: http://ts.acadiau.ca/how-do-i-set-up-network-printers.html/
Check out this (your) libguide
Each librarian has created specialized guides called Libguides for each academic department that group the most relevant resources for each subject area to make it easier for students to find the best resources for assignments and papers. Our libguides are located on the main library page and are also available at: http://libguides.acadiau.ca.
