All Library Terminals at Helsinki University Library Locations will be renewed on Thursday September 20th.
The new library terminals will allow anyone to search books and articles on Helka, and read digital theses from the University of Helsinki on the E-Thesis repository. The library terminals will also provide users with access to the Helka database’s customer functions, such as saving your searches and favourites as well as saving references or forwarding them to an email address.
University of Helsinki students and staff will be able to use the terminals to log in to their personal desktops with their university IDs.
Print with the copy card
Articles, references and extracts of e-books can also be printed on the new terminals. Printing options are limited to double-sided black and white. Each terminal has its own designated printer whose address is readily available in the print menu. The multi-function devices that are used for printing are not always located in close proximity to the terminals. Instructions on where the multi-function device is located can be found near the terminals. Printing requires a Unigrafia copy card which can be purchased from the library’s customer service desk.
In addition to printing, you can also use the terminals to save articles, references and extracts of e-books onto a memory stick.
The library terminals cannot be used for browsing the internet or working on your personal files.
Guest computers to be phased out
The new terminals will replace all older library terminals and guest computers during the 2018 autumn term. This means that users from outside the University will need to use their own devices to work on their personal files or search for information on the internet. The library’s customer service desk will still provide users with login details for accessing the University’s wireless visitor network with their own computers and devices.
Guest computers are being phased out due to a technical change in the University’s network management system. As a result of this change, the network environment for guests will be terminated. This change will also allow the library to focus on its core service for users from outside the University: providing access to scientific information and University of Helsinki theses and dissertations.
Do you feel overwhelmed by all that excessive information that is available? Take control of your information seeking by participating in the online course Information Seeking and Management for Master’s Thesis Writer.
Information Seeking and Management for Master’s Thesis Writer
This course is primarily aimed at students preparing to start working on their master’s thesis. However, the course is open free of charge to everybody that are interested in the topic.
The course helps you to seek information, manage references and evaluate sources in a manner relevant to your thesis. In addition, you will be able to identify the most common indicators used in research evaluation, define the legal and ethical use of information resources and understand the basics of Open Science.
