New TSC Service Desk in Uplink

Having trouble with technology? You can now get assistance from a real live person at the TSC Service Desk in the Uplink Computer Lab (next to the Buffeteria). Feel free to visit them weekdays between 9am and 6pm for help with all things tech, including student accounts, claim ID, passwords, wifi connection issues, Nexus, and more.

Campus Wifi

Every summer, the campus wireless network gets reset and a new password is required for access. To get the password for UW-WIRELESS, simply sign in to your WebAdvisor account and note the password on the main page. If you are having difficulties, contact servicedesk@uwinnipeg.ca, call 786-9149, or visit the TSC Service Desk in the Uplink Lab.

Refworks

Over the summer, the library was required to migrate all our Refworks accounts to a new server. Read More Here.

Logging in to your account should be more straightforward now, especially from off-campus, and some additional features will be available.

Because we are joining a shared server, you may be required to select a new username if yours is not unique. Refworks will have sent you an email if this is the case. Please follow the instruction there.

Please update any bookmarks you may have to the new address. http://www.refworks.com/refworks2/?groupcode=RWUWinn You will also need to reinstall Write-N-Cite, if that’s a feature you use.

Ebsco Ebook App

Ebsco has developed a new app for their eBooks. Downloadable from Google Play Store or iTunes, this app will give you access to our library’s collection of Ebsco ebooks.

More information here.

Also, don’t forget about the general EbscoHost App, which you can use to find academic journal articles on the Ebsco platform. 

Noise Zones

The Library 5th floor is now divided into three noise zones to ensure students are getting a study environment that best suits their needs. Want to study amongst friends and maybe have a quiet conversation? The area at the top of the spiral stairs is our Collaborative Zone and will be perfect for you. Are you the type that doesn’t mind a little background buzz? The Quiet Zone is a whispers-only individual study space. Need absolute silence? Venture deeper into the library to find our Silent Zone. There’s a space for everyone at the library.
