NEW Guide To ESL Library Resources

If you are an English language learner or an ESL instructor, we encourage you to check out our new UNB Libraries’ Guide to ESL Library Resources which features print, electronic, and audiovisual resources that will improve your grammar, reading, writing, and listening comprehension.

This guide can be accessed from UNB Libraries’ home page; choose English under “Research by Subject” and select ESL Library Resources.

AirMedia In HIL Group Study Rooms

The HIL has 6 group study rooms equipped with Wireless Presentation Systems (AirMedia). These systems function with personal or library-loaned laptops, allowing students to wirelessly access the projector system in the room.

Information about the Wireless Presentation Systems is available from CETL.

Media set-up instructions are also available at the HIL Commons Service Desk.

Copyright–Images In The Classroom

A new addition to the copyright webpage covers the use of images in the classroom. For the purposes of class instruction, faculty can rely on the public domain, licenced resources, fair dealing, and educational exceptions to deliver images to students.

The video tutorial on Images in the Classroom further explains how to utilize images within the limits of copyright legislation and licences.

Web Of Science Cancellation And Access To Online Journals

Don’t panic! You still have access to the online journals that you may have found using the database Web of Science. You can still get to your destination (online content), but you now need to take a different route to get there.

Let us explain. It may have seemed as if your online journal articles were provided by Web of Science because you could easily click on the “Check for Fulltext” link to get to your final destination (the fulltext of the article). However, that “Check for Fulltext” link has been added by UNB Libraries to move users seamlessly from the database in which the citation for an article has been found to the database in which the fulltext of the article is held. The important distinction is between databases that index bibliographical records and enable you to discover relevant citations on the one hand and databases that provide content (e.g. the fulltext of articles) on the other.

UNB Libraries never purchased journal content from Web of Science—rest assured, the online journal content is still available. What’s changed is the finding process—instead of “discovering” citations in Web of Science and then proceeding to the fulltext held in other databases, you will now need to “discover” relevant citations in other indexing databases that are identified under the “Find Articles” TAB of the Subject Guide for your discipline.

If you would like some help identifying other indexing databases that you can use to discover citations to relevant articles before linking to the fulltext, do not hesitate to contact your Liaison Librarian or Ask Us for help (by instant message, text message, email, or phone) or in person at our Research Help Desks.
