Get Networked

Set up the campus network on all your devices. It will save you time when you do library research.

The easy way to set up your devices for campus networks:

  • Go to the School of Medicine OIS for assistance: 065 MacNider Hall, 919-962-4357, Mon-Fri 9am-4pm.
    Be sure to mention you need to connect to the UNC network used in the library.

Additional information and hints for networking, NAC agent (required to access SoM network), and operating system or Microsoft Office upgrades is here:

Don't forget: change your password on all your devices when you reset your Onyen password (required every 90 days).

Sprint to Print

Color or black and white printers are available at HSL. Send jobs from HSL computers. To send from your laptop:

Be True to Your Words

Learn how to write without plagiarizing before you write your first paper.

Organize Citations & PDF's

Before you drown in information overload:

  • Set up a RefWorks account and learn to use this tool to help you keep track of the articles you find and cite them correctly when you write.
  • OR register for a free UNC account to try out the new F1000 Workspace
  • How to choose?
    • RefWorks has been around much longer and has direct export options from more databases.
    • Faculty1000 Workspace makes it easy to integrate shared workspaces and storing PDFs. Some people find the integration with Word easier to install. But, it is a brand new product and some features are still in development.

We don't have it?  Use ILL!

Wizards at the HSL can get you articles and books even when the library does not own them.

Be True to Your School:  Choose Allied Health

Select Allied Health as your affiliation on library forms.

  • Then we will know how much Allied Health people love using library services!
