RefWorks 2.0 is now available for UVa students and faculty. This summer, we will default to RefWorks Classic (the original RefWorks). However, you can access RefWorks 2.0 by clicking on the RefWorks 2.0 link at the top right of their website.
If you click on the RefWorks 2.0 link, you’re asked if you want to use 2.0. If you select yes, it takes you into RefWorks
2.0, and saves your settings from RefWorks Classic. You can go back to Classic if you want to do so.
If you want to start getting ready for the new version, RefWorks has an REFWORKS2.0 FAQ. There are links on that page to an preview and their Webinars.
RESERVES FOR SUMMER
Faculty planning to place materials on reserve in the CLIC for summer classes should submit a reserve request form. Your TA can do this for you. They should indicate on the form that the request is for you.

If you have an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Blackberry or other mobile device; please register the devices with UVA. This will provide you with wireless access and help with locating the devices should they be lost or stolen.

SEARCH BY READING LEVEL
You can now limit your search results in Google to a specific reading level. For instance, a junior high school teacher looking for content for her students or a second-language learner might want web pages written at a basic reading level. A scientist searching for the latest findings from the experts may want to limit results to those at advanced reading levels.
To limit your search results by reading level:
1. Go to Google and enter your search.
For example, I entered multicultural books.
2. On the search results page, below the search box, click the link "Advanced Search."
3. In the "Need more tools" section find the "Reading level" search box and using the drop down menu, select your desired reading level (basic, intermediate, or advanced) or choose to show all results by selecting "annotated with reading levels."
3. Click Advanced search button at the bottom of the page.
4. At any time, you can click the X in the right corner of the blue bar beneath the search box to go back to seeing all results.
