42  Using the above tips you should be able to find everything on your reading lists  BUT please don’t put the title of an article into SOLO because you won’t find it. You need the title of the journal.  Also DO NOT assume everything is available electronically – it isn’t!!  Tutors are not infallible…

43  If it’s at the RSL, how do I order it?  If it’s at the RSL, how do I know it’s arrived?  If it’s in Earth Sciences, how do I find it?  Once I’ve got it, how do I renew it?

46  Please make sure you sign out from SOLO and close down the browser when you have finished.  If you don’t do this, your account will be available to anyone who uses the computer after you.

47 The truth isn’t out there

48  Is it just a search engine?  Is it a publisher?  Or merely a platform, an intermediary?  A content kleptomaniac and parasite (in Rupert Murdoch's famous characterisation)  Or a stunning, hydra-headed incarnation of the zeitgeist?  Is it a stunningly resourceful and ingenious servant?  Or is it on the way to becoming our master?

49  Think about it!  We just don’t know…

They are also sometimes incorrectly called memory sticks, which is a Sony trademark describing their type of memory card. A USB flash drive is essentially NAND- type flash memory integrated with a USB 1.1 or 2.0 interface used as a small, lightweight, removable data storage device currently available in sizes: 512MB, 1GB, 2GB, 4GB & 8GB ©http://www.picstop.co.uk/USB-Flash-Drive Image © legitreviews.com
