You asked for it and you got it! We added power strips to many of the tables on floors 3-6. The power strips have both electrical outlets and USB ports. So charge your phone, laptop, and other devices while you study or hang out!
We’ve had reports of some library patrons getting a message in Search@UW that says “User ID not valid. Please refer to Library staff for assistance.” We’ve noticed it usually happens when trying to request something from another library. If this is happening to you, we want to know about it! Please e-mail email@example.com, and we will try to figure out what’s going on. In the meantime – if you click on the Community Users link instead of the UWGB Students and Staff one, that login will accept the 16-digit barcode on your student ID and your last name, and you will be able to complete your request.
Need to gather non-biased introductory and background information on current, social, and political issues? Try CQ Researcher. Each report covers topics in the news. A quick look at recent reports include:

- Government Surveillance

- Preparing for Disaster
Each CQ Researcher report includes an introduction and overview of the topic, the current situation, outlook, a pro/con take on the issue written by experts, a chronology of important events, and a bibliography for gathering additional sources.

Cofrin Library recently extended the quality and reach of its resource sharing capabilities by agreeing to join in a reciprocal partnership with Minitex. Minitex operates at the University of Minnesota and is a clearing house for a publically supported network of academic, public, state, government and special libraries in Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. Minitex is a leader in the field of resource sharing and in 2012 filled nearly 270,636 loan and article requests from libraries in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
This is a great addition to Cofrin Library’s resource sharing network and grants UW-Green Bay ILL free access to the collections of over 491 libraries, which includes all thirteen libraries within the University of Minnesota library network. Minitex is also a part of the South Central Library System Delivery Service, which delivers library materials throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota. Being a part of this network means that materials filled by Minitex should arrive within the 1-3 business days. If you have any questions or comments about this new partnership, please contact Mitchell Scott, Resource Sharing Librarian, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Faculty and staff are invited to Cofrin Library’s Open House on Thursday, August 29 from Noon to 1:30pm on the 4th floor of the library!
We have a new website, a powerful new search tool – Search@UW – and new services and resources to show off. Come and meet with library staff from different department areas to get tips and advice for using the library’s resources in your classes, or for your own research.
Snacks will be provided and attendees will be entered into a drawing for door prizes.
