Reminder to recently-graduated students (including those studying for the NCLEX): your student GWorld Card will expire shortly, and so will your 24/7 library access, if you are no longer registered for classes. Alumni are welcome to visit the library but will need to obtain their Alumni GWorld Card for access outside of the library's public business hours of M-F 9:30-6:00. No exceptions! Contact Susan Hyde (GW Facilities) at 571-553-3501 to schedule a GWorld appointment (confirm with her that you will still need Enterprise Hall/Library access). There is a one-time $10 fee for the alumni card (which has no expiration date).

Recent grads with currently checked-out library materials can renew them until Jan. 31st (no further renewals). GW Alumni do not retain student library borrowing privileges, except by paying a $50 annual GW Library alumni borrowing fee (only items owned by GWU are eligible for borrowing; Consortium and interlibrary loan items can not be checked out by alumni). VSTC-owned library books may be used in-library only during your visit if you do not opt for alumni borrowing.
Visit https://library.gwu.edu/services/borrowing-renewing/loan/gwu-alumni for more details, or see library staff if interested.

ResearchGate: Publishers Take Formal Steps to Force Copyright Compliance - The Scholarly Kitchen

If you've used ResearchGate to post or obtain documents, you should be aware of this copyright crackdown.

A reminder to students: the library is committed to obtaining legal copies of articles and other material needed for your assignments. We worry about copyright so you don't have to when you submit your requests to us for single-copy personal research use. If copyright fees are required, the library covers those on your behalf for free as part of our services in almost every case.

Robert Harington interviews James Milne, Chair of the newly formed Coalition for Responsible Sharing, on action being taken against ResearchGate.

Hurricane Irma

If you're watching the progress of Hurricane Irma, the USGS is providing informational resources and interactive maps here: https://www.usgs.gov/special-topic/hurricane-irma

Hurricane response crews from the U.S. Geological Survey have installed storm-tide sensors at key locations along the northeast shores of Puerto Rico in advance of Hurricane Irma. Under a mission assignment from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the USGS deployed nine sensors.

09/07/2017

Once again, developing weather patterns have the potential to disrupt and delay some interlibrary loan requests as Hurricane Irma tracks northward. A number of our partner libraries in Florida have already shut down their interlibrary lending services in advance of the storm. Severe conditions could also cause additional library closures (power outages!) and mail delays along the coast. Please allow extra time for your out-of-state interlibrary loan items to arrive, just in case any materials must come from the Southeast.

The VSTC Library circulation and walk-up service desk will be closed on Mon., Sept 4th for Labor Day. Students with active GWorld Cards may access the library study space. Alternate study space is also available in Enterprise Hall 170 (computer lab).

Please be aware that numerous library closures in the path of Hurricane Harvey may cause interlibrary loan delays and cancellations, if we are waiting for books and other materials owned by those institutions. Our thoughts are with our lending partners during the massive recovery efforts.
