*Unicorn Users Group Announcement

We will soon be loading MARC records for most of the journals included in our full-text indexes. This is the same list of journals as we include on the IU Bloomington Libraries Website in the section Online Full-Text Journals--more than 30,000 titles! Public services staff will want to find out more about how this will affect searching in IUCAT and how it will add more access to electronic journals. The Bloomington Unicorn Users Group will hold two information sessions about the loading of Serials Solutions data into Unicorn. Bring your questions to one of these open discussions and join us to learn about what records are included, how they will look, how to read and interpret these new records, and how to access them from off-campus.

Thursday, Sept. 25, 11:00 - 12:00
Tuesday, Sept. 30, 1:30 - 2:30
Both meetings are in E-174.
