You will receive listserv notices at the e-mail address that you register (choose digest for consolidated notices).
You can only send e-mail to the listserv from the registered address.
Pay attention to your reply addresses!! (It’s embarrassing to send personal e-mails to the entire listserv).
To check out RU listservs, look at the list here, specifically the ones for the GSA: https://email.rutgers.edu/mailman/listinfo
Also, check out this link to a great article explaining listservs. Scroll down to the bottom to see links to lists of Library listservs (try saying that 3 times fast!): http://www.webjunction.org/basic-skills-email/ articles/content/430708
Computer Labs @ SC&I
You’re sitting in the main one! Check the schedules at the door for operating hours.
You need your ID to get your print jobs!! (The printer is out in the lobby).
NetOps people are right next door and they are very helpful.
There is a small (3-computer) grad student lab on the 3 rd floor with a black & white printer, color printer, and scanner.
SSH File Transfer (we’ll talk more about this in a few minutes)
There is limited free printing...
* save MS Office 2007 files in compatibility mode or they may be unreadable on some machines
Discount software for students:
Free Microsoft Access 2007 for SC&I students (downloads best with IE):
Virus Protection for Students
Get a flash drive! Inexpensive, easy, portable way to save files.
Connect your laptop!
Basic Computer Network Principles In a networked computing environment, a main computer system, called a SERVER, serves software and files to workstations that are connected to it. These workstations can be your home PC or the PC’s in our labs here on campus and throughout Rutgers.
Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP)
SFTP -> “Secure File Transfer Protocol”.
It is the way to securely transfer files over the Internet from one computer to another. For most users, this means transferring files from a local computer to a server and back again.
Every student is given space on the EDEN Server for file storage.
File transfer software is installed on the SC&I lab workstations ( see: WinSCP ).
SFTP Practice using WinSCP (PC Only – Mac, next slide)
Start a New Session
Host Name: eden.rutgers.edu
User Name and Password: your EDEN net id and pwd
Port number: 22
Ignore the Private key file field
Select “SFTP (allow SCP fallback)” Protocol
If this box appears, hit “Yes”:
To Disconnect: Click icon.
Note: Do NOT remove the Maildir folder! (it holds your EDEN email)
SFTP for Mac Users
You’ll need to download and install an SFTP management tool. Some suggestions: Cyberduck and Fugu .
This example below uses Cyberduck.
Folders in WinSCP
You can use SFTP to back up your school work. Your EDEN usage will include data stored here.
To set up your personal website, create a folder in your WinSCP called [exactly] public_html
Create a subfolder for 550 (Info Tech)
In WinSCP, right click on subfolder name, and click on Properties
Permissions: 777 (full) or 644 (read only) Note: You must set the permissions to one of the above for others to see the website.
Test it: http://eden.rutgers.edu/~your netID/
WinSCP Download (PC only) How to Download WinSCP : Click the pic to get to the University Software Portal; or go to software.rutgers.edu. Login using your EDEN netID and password. Type “scp” (no quotes) into the search box and click on link for WinSCP. Follow download instructions.
More New Technology! This may seem overwhelming, but you can do it!! We are going to introduce you to some useful tools for the future. When you need to use them, go to our wiki for detailed instructions and how-to videos. For now, just sit back, relax, and enjoy the show…
You can collect online resources in one spot for yourself or for group projects.
You can add notes to your bookmarks to help you remember why you liked them (e.g., good bio; good quote on p. 23).
You can make your bookmarks private or share them with others.
Delicious bookmarks are searchable, so they are a great “getting started” resource. You’ll get results that other people have decided were relevant to your search terms!
See RU asis&t ’s Delicious bookmarks on our wiki !
You can create and share your work online; you can also upload to and from your desktop.
You control who has access to your document and whether they can edit or just view.
More than one person can edit the document at one time and changes are tracked so you know who does what.
Files are stored securely online, and the service is free (you’ll have to register for your free Google account to use).
Some professors use (click the pic for more info)!
See more about Google docs on our wiki !
Where do I park ? Where are the RU bookstores ? Where do I get my student ID ? How do I find out what books I need ? Where can I eat ? Anything else ? Click on the question marks to get some answers! Our website and wiki also have helpful info.
You’ve got what it takes!
You’re ready for library school and its information adventures!
Don’t get overwhelmed…you can always ask your fellow students for help.
Relax. You can do it!!!
