Librarians can be your secret weapon for knocking your research papers out of the park. You can find us by walking into the library lobby and screaming “Somebody help me!” and we’d totally be there in a second. Or you can avoid the embarrassment and use our new online scheduling system to book an appointment at your convenience. Click here to get started.
The librarians will still have drop-in hours, or you can book tutoring and writing appointments at the same place. Just don’t leave things to the last second, okay?
Starting this fall, targeted recommendations for library resources and services will be available in various spots across campus through BluuBeam, a proximity-triggered information system that iPhone and Android users can access with a free app.
BluuBeam uses iBeacon technology and Bluetooth Low Energy transmitters to reach out to people in a specific location. If the app is on your phone, you will be notified when a Beam is in your area; you might also see the BluuBeam logo in spots where a beam is available. The information sent through these Beams is intended to be of special interest to the people in that area. For example, BluuBeam users in the Cornell Fine Arts building might find links to good online collections of art while users in Crummer will be reminded that Dorothy Mays is ready to work with them. This information can be saved on your phone and even shared with others who aren’t in the area.
To access BluuBeam, start by installing the free app from the iTunes, the Google
store or athttp://bluubeam.com/pages/download.
