Who are we? The Librarian , a 1556 painting by Giuseppe Arcimboldo

Who are you ? Illustration from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland ( ch. 5 , “Advice from a Caterpillar”)

Library Associations Librarians have LOTS of career options! Keep an open mind... Join a professional organization ! Most have inexpensive student memberships, and the networking opportunities should not be missed. Join a student organization ! Membership is free, and it’s a great way to get involved.

What is EDEN? EDEN is the student server for Rutgers New Brunswick. All SC&I students need an EDEN netID and password to access the RU network, which includes services such as e-mail, web registration, eCollege, remote access to library databases. Your netID cannot be changed; be professional!

E-mail Tips You can’t keep your EDEN address forever! A year after you graduate, your account will be deleted. Choose a netID that you can continue to use in the future on another e-mail provider (e.g., [email_address] can easily transition to [email_address] ). EDEN e-mail is the primary means of communication between you and Rutgers University. Be sure to monitor or forward EDEN e-mail!

Listserv Tips You will receive listserv notices at the e-mail address that you register (choose digest for consolidated notices). You can only send e-mail to the listserv from the registered address. Pay attention to your reply addresses!! (It’s embarrassing to send personal e-mails to the entire listserv). To check out RU listservs, look at the list here, specifically the ones for the GSA: https://email.rutgers.edu/mailman/listinfo Also, check out this link to a great article explaining listservs. Scroll down to the bottom to see links to lists of Library listservs (try saying that 3 times fast!): http://www.webjunction.org/basic-skills-email/ articles/content/430708

Computer Labs You’re sitting in the main one for SC&I (119A&B)! Check the schedules at the door for operating hours. You need your ID to get your print jobs!! SC&I Helpdesk is right next door and they are very helpful. There is a small grad student lab on the 3 rd floor of SC&I with a 3 PCs, 2 Macs and a good quality printer. There is a larger grad lab on the 3 rd floor of Alexander Library. For higher end multimedia work, visit the Fordham lab at the Douglass Library.

Basic Computer Network Principles In a networked computing environment, a main computer system, called a SERVER, serves software and files to workstations that are connected to it. These workstations can be your home PC or the PC’s in our labs here on campus and throughout Rutgers.

Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) SFTP -> “Secure File Transfer Protocol”. Securely transfer files over the Internet from one computer to another. For most users, this means transferring files from a local computer to a remote server (e.g., Eden) and back again. Every student is given space on the EDEN Server for file storage. File transfer software is installed on the SC&I lab workstations

Macs and PCs: Filezilla Filezilla is a free FTP utility that works on both Mac and PC. The Information Technology course (550) will transition to usage of this tool for remote file transfers.

Folders in WinSCP You can use SFTP to back up your school work. Your EDEN usage will include data stored here. To set up your personal website, create a folder in your WinSCP called [exactly] public_html Create a subfolder for 550 (Info Tech) In WinSCP, right click on subfolder name, and click on Properties Permissions: 777 (full) or 644 (read only) ‏ Note: You must set the permissions to one of the above for others to see the website. Test it: http://eden.rutgers.edu/~your netID/

File Management Tips MATCH the file structure from your local machine to the remote one, when using WinSCP or Filezilla.

File Management Tips, cont. Do NOT use spaces and special characters in filenames. Use lowercase letters in your filenames. Good practice for multi-word filenames is to start with a lowercase letter and capitalize the first letter of each subsequent word, e.g., firstWebpage Windows users: configure Explorer to show file extensions for all files. This will eliminate filenaming errors such as “index.html.html”. Vista and higher: in Explorer top menu bar, click “Organize” and then “Folder and search options”. Click “View”. Uncheck the box next to “Hide extensions for known file types”.

Coding Tips When coding HTML, CSS or any other language, SPELL things in a CONSISTENT fashion. Check for typos if hyperlinks or pages do not work. Pearls of wisdom from Anselm Spoerri, LIS Assistant Professor: “ In 550, students will be provided with code examples and their job is, to use an analogy, to "extend a two-way highway into a 10-way highway“. Since they will be provided the code for creating one highway, they can use copy, paste & modify to create the other highways. It is paramount that variables are named and used in a CONSISTENT fashion. So if they have defined a variable " highway5 ", then spelling in different ways later in the code will mean that the code will not work. Students may then draw the wrong conclusion that programming is hard, when it fact the code is not working because of a simple spelling inconsistency ... if this penny drops, then they are a long way toward having fun with programming :)”

WinSCP Download (PC only) How to Download WinSCP : Click the pic to get to the University Software Portal; or go to software.rutgers.edu. Login using your EDEN netID and password. Type “scp” (no quotes) into the search box and click on link for WinSCP. Follow download instructions.

More New Technology! This may seem overwhelming, but you can do it!! We are going to introduce you to some useful tools for the future. When you need to use them, go to our wiki for detailed instructions and how-to videos. For now, just sit back, relax, and enjoy the show…

Social & Presentation Software With social bookmarking, collect online resources in one spot for yourself or for group projects. Skype is a great option for conference calls. For IM, try Google Talk , Skype or Meebo Messenger . Use Panapto , Jing , Screencast-O-Matic or Prezi to create screencasts or other advanced online presentations. See the Tech Help section of our website for more links. Contact Us if you encounter another cool tool!
