The Centre for Women’s and Gender Studies’ Beyond Binaries and Borders symposium held on March 13-14, 2009 was part of UBC’s Celebrate Research Week. Click here to see their Spring/Summer 2009 newsletter in cIRcle.

Some patrons are having difficulty exporting to RefWorks from Summon from off-campus locations and are receiving the error message: “Import aborted, missing server and/or file information.”

The solution is to log into EZproxy or myVPN before you save citations. You will see that there is a brown bar at the top of Summon which says “Off Campus?” when you arrive from a non-UBC IP address. If you click on it you can then log into EZproxy from there. Everything works fine if you do that first.

The Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Research Conference (MURC) celebrates the contributions of undergraduate scholarly inquiry/research at UBC.  Both students who are currently engaged in undergraduate research and students who are interested in getting connected to an undergraduate research experience are encouraged to attend. UBC community members are also welcome to attend this annual celebration of undergraduate scholarly work.  The conference is held every year in March, and is strongly linked to UBC’s Celebrate Research Week.

Registration is now underway. Spots are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Visit the new MURC website here for more details.
