Beginning Monday, Dec. 19, 2016, the library will start shifting database logins to SailPoint--just like Banner and other campus logins. Old links and logins will still work during the transition.
This is step one in our upgrade to our new catalog and library system. The new catalog became available Jan 9, 2017.
The Library has expanded access to the streaming videos on the Kanopy platform. Now all 26,000 videos on the platform are available to watch in full. If enough people watch a particular video, it will be added to our licensed collection.
If you don't see what you are looking for on Kanopy, contact David Feinmark, our Collection Development Librarian. David can check if Kanopy can acquire rights to videos, films, documentaries, etc. that you are interested in using.
The Library closes when the University closes. While we will attempt to place a notice on the library website and send out notices via Faceook, Twitter, and Google Plus, notices on the University pages, social networks, and emergency notification system are the official announcement.
If you get a Security Certificate Error when logging into databases, you can Accept or Continue without worry. Depending on your browser you may need to go through several steps to accept the "faulty" security certificate. (See what this process looks like in Firefox.) You should only have to do this once per browser. The problem is under investigation and is being worked on.
Update--The certificate errors have (mostly) been fixed. If you still have trouble, please let us know.
