  • to store citations lists of databases and lists of journals.
  • to cross search multiple databases after selecting a subject categories.
  • to create a custom group of databases using My Lists.
  • to identify a citation and ascertain if it is online or in the library.

Moving PC lab from Library Basement to 7th Floor during Spring Break

To improve access to and use of computing resources in the Library, we will be relocating the PC lab in the basement to the 7th floor during Spring Break. The following is the schedule:

March 5 - Some furniture from 4th-6th floors will be swapped with the those on the 7th floor.
March 17-21 (Spring Break) - Basement will be closed for relocation of PCs and furniture.

This will keep Exam Week (March 10-14) free of any noise and activities related to the move. Please contact lcshelp@lists.umbc.edu if you have any questions.
