The majority of our electronic databases and journals are restricted for use only by UF faculty, staff, and students. If you are on campus, the library recognizes your IP address, however if you are off campus, you will need to log on using the UF VPN software.
Marston Science Library has imaging machines located on the second (main) and first floors. These machines can print, copy or scan. The cost is $0.10 (b/w) and $0.50 (color) per page through your Gator 1 card, to which you must add value for vending services at http://www.gator1.ufl.edu/. If you wish to obtain a departmental copier account, contact the Gator 1 card office. You can also check out most journals to photocopy articles in your department or a store. Scanners are also available on the second (main) and first floors, to make a PDF of the article which you can then save on a USB drive, burn to a CD, or email to yourself. More...
We offer RefWorks, a web-based bibliographic manager, for all faculty, staff, and students. RefWorks allows users to create an unlimited number of accounts, import and create article citations, and format and quickly output reference lists into Word, HTML, or plain text format. You will need to create an account and, if off campus, be sure to use the UF Group code (provided during account creation). Currently, RefWorks is allowing an unlimited amount of data to be stored in each account and you can upload citations, images, documents, and other types of files. There is an extensive amount of help documentation or please feel free to contact your librarian with any questions.
The best way to obtain help is to contact your librarian: if you are having trouble finding material, wish to place material on course reserve, have questions about databases, or would like to schedule an instruction session for yourself, class, or lab group.
