Hi Here are some more dates for online demonstration sessions.

Wednesday 23rd 12-1 Searching for Medical Literature (ebooks and articles)
Monday 28th March 12-1 Endnote Web
Wednesday 30th March 1-2  Searching for Medical Literature

Tuesday 5th April 1-2 Finding your articles.
Thursday 7th April 4-5  Endnote Web
Monday 11th April 12-1  Searching for Medical Literature

To indicate your interest in the sessions, please email quoting which session you would like to attend and we will send confirmation of your place on a session and how to access the session.

For each session you will need the latest version of flash. There will be a demonstration of using the software or database and you are able to ask questions as we go along.

We are using some new software (Big Blue Button) for these sessions and I hope that if you have a microphone attached to your computer you will be able to chat back rather than type chat. The first of its kind for us here at DLS!

Hope to see you there. If there is a subject you wish to see covered, email me your suggestions

Requesting Articles

March 16, 2009

I hope that most of you know that you can request articles from us, which you have been unable to source via our electronic journals subscriptions.

To do this, you need to go to this requesting website.

The main thing to remember, if you have requested items in this way, is that- we still need a copyright declaration for each item you request.

When you make a request using the website above, each submission will produce a page for you to print out so you can physically sign it and send it in.

You can read more about how to request articles from us on the page at the top of the blog ‘requesting articles and books’

So please please don’t forget to send them in. Or you can fax them or scan and send by email to:
+29 20 74 3651

Remember, we can not supply your requests without them, so pop em in the post or fax them through or scan and email them to us.

In the not too distant future we will be moving to electronic  signatures and of course I will keep you posted when those changes take place.

Best wishes

Mari Ann
