Himmelfarb Headlines - November / December 2017

What's New at Himmelfarb

What's New at HimmelfarbFollow-Me PaperCut Printing was made available at faculty and staff computers in the School of Medicine and Health Sciences on October 25. Follow-Me Printing is similar to the WePA Printing system used by GW students as Follow-Me Printing allows users to submit a print job and then release it at any of the 35 Follow-Me PaperCut Canon printers located in the SMHS. To obtain your print job, simply tap your GWorld card on the printer and then select your job to be printed. You can also use these Canon printers to copy or scan documents by tapping your GWorld card and then selecting ‘Use Copier.’

The transition to Two-Step Authentication for access to GW email and other Google Drive apps has been postponed.  Some users have already activated two-step authentication on their GW account and can continue to use it.  Users who have not already activated two-step authentication do not need to take any action until notified by GW’s  Division of Information Technology

PubMed’s Best Match algorithm is available to provide another way to sort your research.  You may see a boxed set of ‘Best Match’ results at the top of your search results and can also switch your entire results set to be sorted based on Best Match rather than Most Recent.  Best Match articles are identified using an algorithm based on machine learning and goes beyond term frequency.  Read more about the updated Best Match algorithm in this NLM Technical Bulletin.
