Color printing is available adjacent to the Campus Mailroom in the Balfour Hood Copy Center. Normally printing in color costs .50 a page. However, we will negotiate a special price for Honor’s Thesis students and let you know what that price is at one of the upcoming meetings.
Getting Organized with RefWorks
RefWorks is a web-based tool designed to help you organize bibliographic references and use them to create bibliographies and format citations in papers. This bibliography manager essentially allows you to create your own personal database by manually entering reference information or by importing references from online library catalogs and article databases. See our RefWorks web page for information about this powerful research tool. Contact your liaison librarian to get started.
- Creating. For creating images, scanners are available in several locations around campus, including the Library and the Graphic Design Computer Lab. A slide scanner is available by special arrangement in the Slide Library in Watson. Christopher Hyde, the Visual Resources Curator in the Slide Library, can also offer advice about how to create digital images of artwork, printed materials, etc.
- Finding. If you need to find digital images of artwork, look in our digital image collections. If you are looking for additional content, contact your library liaison.
- Using. You can crop and resize your images in the Library or the Graphic Design Computer Lab (GDCL). If you need advice about how to create the best looking image (either through color correction adjusting the resolution), contact the technology liaison to Studio Art and the manager of the GDCL.
If you need help using GIS, Maple, Minitab, SPSS, or other specialized academic software packages, contact the technology liaison responsible for supporting that software. We also maintain a list of where many of these specialize software packages are installed.
