Students! As some of you may already know, CUNYFirst has replaced eSIMS as the system that you will use to register for classes and access your records. To access your information in CUNYFirst, you will need to create an account. For information about how to get started, visit this instruction page. You will also find handouts with instructions for setting up and using your CUNYFirst accounts located throughout campus. If you are in the library, you can ask for some at the reference desk.
The City Tech Library, in partnership with the Faculty Commons, is pleased to invite all faculty to a library workshop. Looking for a way to streamline and manage the research you do using internet or library sources? Looking for a tool that your students can use to keep track of their research? Learn about how citation managers can help organize and cite references as well as share and discuss scholarship with colleagues at City Tech or beyond. In this workshop we’ll introduce you to 4 solutions for citation management: RefWorks, EasyBib, Zotero, and Mendeley.
Our workshop will be held on Wednesday April 24, 1-2pm in Rm. A441 in the Library, Atrium 4th Fl. RSVP to Prof. Maura Smale at firstname.lastname@example.org or Prof. Keith Muchowski at email@example.com.
