Suggestion: Library Lifts

By Curtin Library 15 January 2019 News & events Comments off

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library…

Hi, would it be possible to remove the dead moths from the glass ceilings in the library lifts? Not an attractive look

The Library responds…

Thank you for reporting the moths in the ceiling of the Library’s lifts. We have passed this on to University Properties who will address the issue.

Suggestion: Cleaning

By Curtin Library 8 January 2019 News & events Comments off

From the suggestion box@Curtin Library…

Hi,
I went to level 4 of Robertson Library today and find something sad. The Asian Lagrange collections are in terrible conditions and situations. Dusts all around the books and even germs. Some books are almost 100 years, so please be nice to them and take care of them.

The Library responds…

Thank you for your feedback and for bringing this to our attention. There has been some work reviewing library collections, but this area has not been attended to recently. We will use the semester break period to look at additional cleaning including the Asian Language Collection and think about how to maintain the area.

Win with ORCID: Connect your ORCID through Elements

By Curtin Library 21 November 2018 Research Comments off

Congratulations to this week’s five winners of ORCID prize packs!

Zhanglong Cao – School of Molecular and Life Sciences
Amy Tian – School of Management
Petra Helmholz – School of Earth and Planetary Sciences
Rob Steuart – Curtin Health Innovation Research Institute
Yuni Yuningsih – School of Accounting

The competition is now finished but there are plenty of good reasons to create and connect your ORCID through Elements.

ORCID  (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) is a persistent digital identifier for researchers that links together your outputs and activities.

ORCID is now integrated with Curtin’s Publications Management System, Elements, enabling quicker and more accurate claiming of publications.

Staff are strongly encouraged to connect their ORCID record through Elements, which takes less than 30 seconds.

Your ORCID:
– Is required by publishers for journals submissions and funders for grant applications
– Distinguishes you and your research outputs from other researchers
– Improves recognition and discoverability of you and your research output
– Can be used throughout your whole research career
– Can make it easier to generate publication lists and citation reports
Keep your ORCID record up to date to reap maximum benefits and save precious time. Visit our help guide or contact LibraryResearchSupport@curtin.edu.au for assistance.

ORCID Winners: Connect your ORCID through Elements

By Curtin Library 14 November 2018 Research Comments off

Congratulations to this week’s five winners of ORCID Prize Packs!

Valerie Maxville – School of Electrical Engineering, Computing and Mathematical Science
Lin Fritschi – School of Public Health
Yun Yu – WASM: Minerals, Energy and Chemical Engineering
Harry Bloch – School of Economics, Finance, and Property
Rima Caccetta – School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences

It’s not too late to win a prize! Create or connect your ORCID to Elements now for a chance to win a coffee voucher, an ORCID mug, sticker, and badge!

Five winners to be drawn randomly every Tuesday until 20th November 2018.

“I have an ORCID as this is the global one stop shop for recording a researcher’s profile and is not tied to any institution. Funding bodies such as the ARC ask for ORCIDs on grant applications. Also in a sector where so much of our work is tied to commercial entities such as publishers, ORCID is a not-for-profit organisation, which is good to support.”
Professor Kirsten Holmes, Dean of Research, Faculty of Business and Law
