This guide complements a working group meeting at Rutgers in November 2013.

FAQs

I clicked "Get it @ R" in an article database but I still can't find the pdf of the article I want.

Since you don't have a NetID, I have to place an article delivery request on your behalf. Email me (gasparom@rci.rutgers.edu) and I will request it for you. Requests usually take between 2 hours to 2 days. 

How do I get access to the computers in the libraries?

Each library has public computers. We have created an account for each of you. This account will work for 2 hours per day.

Can I use the wireless in the libraries?

Yes! Use the account information given to you at the library session.
