Behind the Scenes!

This is the inaugural post about tasks that are performed to ensure that our 21st century library progresses.

Now that the print book collection has been physically moved and shelved to the south side of the 3rd floor, the next step is inventory. The books in the stacks are checked manually, and then the electronic catalog is updated. Many thanks to the Acquisitions Department student workers for this necessary step in data quality control!

Search is down


Discovery, as well as other EBSCO databases are back up. Their statement is as follows:

"We are making progress on restoring service. One of our data centers is successfully taking on live connections, and many users are seeing normal response times. Having said that, there are still problem areas."

Please don't hesitate to contact the library if you need help finding what you need.

*Update end*

Our discovery tool (as shown on the front page) is down.

You can still find all our resources at the links in the middle of the homepage.

Please contact a librarian if you need help.
