1 As a faculty member, I would find it very helpful if there were a direct link to export to Endnote (as there is for Refworks) on the record page. Thank you,
Comment from Dexter Callender on Dec 18 2014


lbaker@miami.eduDear Professor Callender,

Unfortunately, EndNote does not allow for direct export from the Library Catalog to an EndNote library. You can, however, follow a multistep process to "save records for export" and then "export saved records" to EndNote. 

We anticipate that when UM Libraries adopts a new "discovery" layer (within the next year or so) this process will be simplified.

Using our Articles+ search, the default search on the library website, you can export saved records directly. 

Please contact me if you would like to discuss this further, at lbaker@miami.edu.

2 Do you have the sheet music to "Im just a square in a social circle" from The Stork Club by Ray Evans and Jay Livingston

nzavac@miami.eduHello, I checked our online catalog and we do not own the sheet music for that piece.  I will look it up to see if I can purchase it for the Music Library.

3 Feeling Stalked in the Stacks? Here's what to do...
Comment from Anonymous on Feb 12 2013


cgowing@miami.eduSomeone recently posted a question to the "Dear V" advice column in the Miami Hurricane, indicating they felt "stalked in the stacks"  since the same person seemed to always sit near them and entered/left the library at the same time.  

If you  feel stalked/followed while in any of our libraries, please either contact  University Public Safety [305-284-6666] or a library staff member, who will contact Public Safety on your behalf. 

We strive to maintain a safe, secure, and comfortable environment for all library users, so if another patron is making you uncomfortable, is noisy, or otherwise disrupting your ability to study, please let us know. 

You can contact us by chat [http://library.miami.edu/ask-a-librarian/] or text [305-809-7770], or stop by any library service desk.  Stay safe!
