Over the Spring 2017 semester, the Academic Computing and Communications Center has been working diligently to address these issues. <br /><br />ACCC has been taking these actions to prevent future problems: <br /><br />1. We have improved the automated monitoring of the printing system, allowing ACCC staff to more quickly identify and resolve outages. <br /><br />2. We have been investigating the cause of jobs failing to print with our software provider, and will continue efforts until the problem has been resolved. <br /><br />3. We have increased the number of printers and release stations that we are replacing this year to decrease the probability of hardware failures. The high printing volume areas are being targeted first. Printers in the IDEA Commons were replaced last year, and the rest of Daley Library and Student Residence Commons 2027 are next. Additional replacement printers and release stations will be ordered and installed before the Fall 2017 semester. <br /><br />In addition to technical efforts to improve the printing service, ACCC is also working to improve communications with the campus through: <br /><br />1. A website showing the status of all public printers on campus that you will be able to check on a mobile device. Coming Soon: printingstatus.accc.uic.edu <br /><br />2. Improved signage at printing locations that is both current and informative. <br /><br />3. An improved, just-in-time, internal communication system to ensure ACCC employees in lab locations are aware of the status of the printing service and can act accordingly. <br /><br />We have put additional plans in place for the last two weeks of the semester to prevent printing outages, minimize the duration of an outage if one does occur, and provide a backup printing solution at the IDEA Commons, Student Center East 401, BSB Learning Center, and Student Center West C-Stop locations in the event of an extended outage. Other service improvements are being considered for the fall semester.<br /><br />ACCC is committed to maintaining a printing service that runs well and meets your academic needs. We appreciate your patience while we work to improve this service. <br /><br />If you have questions or concerns about printing, or any other ACCC service, please contact us by email at consult@uic.edu, by phone at 312-413-0003, or in person at the C-STOP in the BSB Learning Center. <br /><br />Sincerely, <br /><br />Cynthia Herrera Lindstrom <br />Vice Provost for IT & CIO <br />Executive Director, Academic Computing and Communications Center <br /> massmail http://www.uic.edu/uic MassmailFeed Fri, 21 Apr 2017 10:04:49 -0500 Fri, 21 Apr 2017 10:04:49 -0500 [INFO] Diabetes Technology Study – Subjects needed: $10 for 10-15 min Interview FACULTY—STAFF—STUDENTS<br /><br />Study Title: Mobile App Preferences of People with Type 1 or 2 Diabetes and Hypoglycemia.<br /><br />We are seeking Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes patients who experience mild to severe hypoglycemia. <br /><br />The purpose of the study is to:<br /><br />1. Understand in what way Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes patients could benefit from the use of a new diabetes technology that quickly and easily measures glucose levels through human breath.<br /><br />2. Gather feedback about the most beneficial hypoglycemic information that would be displayed on a mobile app interface, including data visualization graphics.<br /><br />The interview will take approx. 10-15 min. to complete and can be conducted by phone or in a public place on the UIC campus. Key conditions of the study:<br />• Participants must be 18 yrs. or older.<br />• Participants must have Type 1 or 2 Diabetes with mild to severe hypoglycemia.<br />• Participants may stop the interview at any time.<br />• Participant compensation includes either $10 cash or a Gift Card code, if the interview is completed.<br />• The interview can be conducted by phone or in person.<br />• Participant answers will be recorded anonymously without any link to their name or identity.<br />• Participant answers will only reflect their personal experience as a diabetic.<br />• We will NOT ask participants any questions related to their personal health.<br />• Participation will not affect your relationship with the researcher or UIC.<br />• There is no direct benefit to the participant for participating, i.e., the information gathered will benefit (primarily) the researchers by providing a deeper knowledge of patient's experience as a diabetic and how they are managing this disease.<br /><br />Those interested in volunteering, please send an email to confirm your interest to: <br />Faiola@uic.edu <br />...or leave a voice message at: 312-413-8353<br /><br />Research Principal Investigator: Anthony Faiola, PhD, Dept. of Biomedical & Health Information Sciences, University of Illinois at Chicago, College of Applied Health Sciences, 1919 W.

The new search will replace the current home page search in May 2017.<br /><br />Why change the search?<br /><br />In usability testing, many students and faculty expected a single, Google-like search, and they found the tabbed search more difficult to use. The design for the search is based on input from UIC students and best practices from other libraries.<br /><br />Read full article at http://library.uic.edu/about/news/article/6018/try-the-new-improved-search<br /><br />Try the new, improved search at http://library.uic.edu/home-bento<br /><br /><br />Extended hours during finals, April 23-May 5, 2017<br /><br />The Richard J.
