Why wait to download articles you know you will need, when you can do it now? In January, the NCAR Library is transitioning its online journal subscription service to provide access to journals held at CU Boulder. We encourage you to do your research early, as there will be changes to Library website and the configuration of our services.

If you have any questions or need help downloading articles, don’t hesitate to contact us at ncarref@ucar.edu or ext. 1180.

In an effort to simplify wireless access for our visitors, guests, and staff with personal devices, there will be a new unencrypted wireless network called "UCAR Visitor" available on Monday, December 18th at all UCAR sites.  Rather than use a weekly password to access the network, guests, visitors, or staff may enter their name and email address to gain short or long term access.

Additionally on December 18th, neither the "UCAR VPN" nor the "UCAR Guest" wireless networks will be available at any UCAR site.  Please direct visitors and guests to the "UCAR Visitor" wireless network. UCAR staff have the option of enrolling on the "UCAR Visitor" network or else working with their IT staff to enroll on the "eduroam" network.  The "eduroam" network has the additional advantages of being both encrypted and also available at other participating labs and educational institutions across the globe.

For any questions related to this change, please send email to cislhelp@ucar.edu.
