Need a poster printed for a conference or a campus event? Here are some handy tips courtesy of ITS: Research Poster Design
Note: the poster printer in the Library on the AZ campus is 42" wide. A common size for conference posters printed there is 60x42. When you are setting up your poster on a Powerpoint slide, set the slide size to 40x28 before you begin to add your content (images, text boxes, etc.). The AZ staff will then be able to print your poster at 60x42.
What Does It Do?
– Have the most current issues of your most important journals easily available at all times
– Browse and read journals: Browse journals by subject or title, easily review tables of contents, and download full articles
– Create your own bookshelf: Add journals to your personal bookshelf and be notified when new articles are published
– Save and export articles: Save articles for off-line reading or export to services such as DropBox, Mendeley, RefWorks, Zotero, Papers and more.
How Do I Get It?
Here's a reminder from ITS's Dean Maag:
This app will allow iPad users to take quizzes in Blackboard that require the Respondus LockDown Browser. This Respondus knowledgebase article explains how it works, and how to obtain the app for your iPad.
iPad users may get the RLDB iPad app from the App Store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/lockdown-browser/id659101775?mt=8
The Blackboard Collaborate™ Launcher is a new utility for users on Mac OS 10.8.4+ systems that simplifies the process for joining Blackboard Collaborate web conferencing sessions. Several recent updates to Java issued by Oracle, coupled with Apple's new security measures around Java on the Mac, created a barrier for participants to easily attend Collaborate sessions and resulted in an increasingly disruptive user experience.
