Problem installing Write-n-Cite?

Some users new to RefWorks came across this message when attempting to install Write-n-Cite on their school laptops:

ÔÇ£Microsoft visual studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime (x86) needs to be installed for this installation to continue.ÔÇØ

Write-n-Cite requires the users to have Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 installed on their computers.?á It is a free download available from the Microsoft website: ?áhttp://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35594

Once that program is installed, you may proceed with the?áinstillation?áprocess.

 

If you would like more information about RefWorks and Write-n-Cite please email the reference librarians, reference@lsuhsc.edu. ?áKeep an eye out for upcoming Introduction to RefWorks classes.

Kinesio Tape at the Olympics

If you’ve been watching the Olympics, you’ve noticed the tape on various athletes. Mostly it seems to be a relatively new product, Kinesio Tape.?á NPR News wrote a story on its efficacy earlier this week.

Join them Friday, October 23rd in Seminar Room 4 on the third floor of the Medical Education Building (across from the cafeteria) for a number of health and wellness activities.
