Please be reminded that UNB Libraries has made the decision to cancel our subscription to RefWorks in favour of supporting freely available citation management alternatives like Zotero and Mendeley. Our license with RefWorks will come to an end on August 31st of this year. Any RefWorks content that has not been transferred from RefWorks into a new software will be irretrievably lost on that date.
We encourage current RefWorks users to continue using citation management software, and recommend transitioning to one of the popular online tools: Zotero or Mendeley. For more information about how these tools compare to one another, and to RefWorks, see the Comparison of Citation Management Software Programs table on the library website.
UNB Libraries staff and resources are available to support you as you make the transition from RefWorks to a free online option. In addition to video support for Zotero and Mendeley, and individual in-person assistance, we will be hosting two workshops at the Harriet Irving Library on UNB Fredericton Campus.
Session 1 – June 28th at 2:00 PM (Learning Lab, Room 112)
Session 2 – July 20th at 10:00 AM (Learning Lab, Room 112)
A workshop will also be hosted on the Saint John Campus in the HWK Commons.
SJ Session – July 13th at 9:30 AM (Commons Room #G16)
We recognize the inconvenience that cancelling RefWorks will cause current users, and offer our apologies. If you require support for your content migration and none of the sessions above work with your schedule, please do not hesitate to contact us directly for individual support. In Fredericton, you can book an appointment with Richelle Witherspoon (phone: 453-4602 | email: email@example.com ); in Saint John, requests can be directed to Diane Buhay (phone: 648-5712 | email: firstname.lastname@example.org).
We are ready and willing to assist you as you make this transition.
A new collection of books dedicated to women in the engineering profession has been established in the Engineering & CS Library.
Founded with donations from the Women in Engineering (WiE) Society at the University of New Brunswick, this collection aims to promote leadership, creativity, and professional development.
The collection has its own location code (ENG-WIE) and will be maintained in a prominent spot in the library to facilitate browsing.
The Women in Engineering Society at UNB was created in 2015
to promote the role of women within the faculty and the profession.
For more information about the WiE Collection, please contact Saran Croos, Engineering Librarian at UNB Fredericton, (506-458-7959).
A new Photography Exhibit REFLECTIONS is located on the 1st floor of the Harriet Irving Library.
REFLECTIONS is the product of three years of Adam Travis’ work at the Brunswickan, the campus paper of the University of New Brunswick. Each photo essay highlights a facet of life at UNB and the unique experiences lived by different groups on campus. Despite the fact that an exhibit that showcases the full diversity of UNB would require an exhibit many times larger, many students should find some similarities between their own stories and the stories shown here: from the changing seasons of campus life to the triumph and heartache felt by student athletes, the struggle to balance our wants and obligations felt by Phil Taber and truly unique academic experiences, such as the cardboard boat race.
Early English Books Online (EEBO), the premier resource for Early Modern English primary sources in English, has recently expanded in scope through the addition of the Text Creation Partnership (TCP) full text feature. The majority of the documents in the database have been transcribed allowing for more efficient and detailed searching as well as digital humanities applications such as “text mining”. EEBO features over 125,000 titles available in digital images including virtually every printed work from England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and British North America spanning from the years 1473 to 1700. The TCP has been a long term, collaborative project and is now available through UNB Libraries.
