A Reading of The Sand County Almanac

The Sand County Almanac Join us in the atrium of the library on Thursday, March 21, 4:30pm – 6:30pm when members of the Le Moyne community read aloud selections from Aldo Leopold’s work, The Sand County Almanac.

Aldo Leopold’s 1949 book, still in print, is one of the classics of nature writing. His essays were outliers at the time regarding land use and wildlife and the relationship human’s have with their environment. Environmentalists, conservationists, and wildlife biologists consider it a seminal work in the founding of the 20th century environmental movement, alongside Rachel Carson’s 1962 book, Silent Spring.

Read more about his legacy at the Aldo Leopold Foundation site https://www.aldoleopold.org/about/aldo-leopold/

Sponsored by the McDevitt Center Sustaining Earth Initiative and the Le Moyne College Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences.

Proxy Server Restored

Off-campus access to journals and databases has been restored. The library’s system vendor fixed a configuration file that had been corrupted to restore the service. The library is very sorry for the inconvenience this outage caused.

Proxy Server Down

The proxy server for all journals and databases has been down since late Friday. We have contacted our system vendor and they are investigating the cause and will restore service. No time estimate has been given.

In the meantime, there is a work-around if you are working on-campus or in the MyDesktop virtual desktop environment.

When a URL is sent to the proxy server, it contains the location for the resource you are trying to access inside a “wrapper” that includes information for how the proxy server should handle it.

For example, the proxied URL for ScienceDirect is:

http://0-www.sciencedirect.com.library.lemoyne.edu/

Note the URL begins with an initial “0-” and ends with “.library.lemoyne.edu”. If you are working on campus, and thus don’t require the proxy server for access, you can remove both of those fragments, leaving a URL like this:

http://www.sciencedirect.com/

This process can be automated using a “bookmarklet”, a small bit of JavaScript code that executes an instruction to your browser.

Drag the following link to your browser bookmark toolbar. It will remove the proxy information from proxied URLs so you are using the resource directly, without going through the proxy. This will only be helpful on-campus.
