- Library Level 9 North Reopened
Level 9 of the Library has reopened following the installation of a new compact shelving array.
With the installation of the new compact shelving, Main Collection call numbers QH 500 through QV were relocated to level 9 - consolidating the sciences on a single floor. Main Collection call numbers R through Z remain on level 10.
Carpeting, desktop computer installations, and signage updates are still underway, but the collection is accessible.

- Citation Software: Upgrade to Premium Mendeley for 2015
The U of L Library has an upgrade for up to 500 users to receive the "premium" institutional version of Mendeley for the rest of 2015. Mendeley is a citation management system similar to EndNote, but with a social aspect tied in (provides information about who is reading/citing your articles, finds similar articles, etc). Normally Mendeley is free, and for most the free version will suffice; the premium provides additional storage space and group capacity. The link is below as well as an outline of some of the features of this upgrade:
This Upgrade link is only valid for 500 users and for the remainder of 2015. All the users wanting to use this Upgrade Link must have a Mendeley account registered with their institutional email address. An existing user can easily update their sign-in email address by going to My Account and update profile information on Mendeley Web.
A Mendeley Premium account includes the following benefits:
- Increase in personal library size for each user, from 2 GB to 5 GB.
- Increase in group storage, from 100 MB to 20 GB.
- Increase in private group size, from 3 to 25 members.
- Increase in number of private groups, from one to unlimited.
