Library Databases and Catalog Outage January 5th

Work on the Library server is now completed as of noon, January 5th.

The Library will be upgrading its proxy server and catalog on January 5, 2021, beginning at 9:00 am ET and lasting 4-6 hours. During this time, online journals, ebooks, and databases will be unavailable from both on- and off-campus.

If you are on-campus, a work-around is available. In both Chrome and Firefox browsers, you are able to install this UnProxy This bookmarklet, by dragging it into your bookmarks toolbar. Clicking it will remove the proxy server information from any library resource’s URL that you are trying to access. This will allow you to access the library resource from on-campus.

If you have any problems, please contact Tom Keays. He will be monitoring a special Zoom Meeting Room during the server outage to help with any problems you might have.
