Everyone at the J.W. England Library would like to congratulate the USciences Class of 2015. As you receive your diplomas this week, we thank you for your hard work and dedication and wish you all the best in the future!
On Friday, May 1st, EBSCOhost will undergo routine system maintenance from 10 PM until midnight. During this 2-hour window, all EBSCOhost databases will remain functional. Only EBSCO's SmartLinking+ service will be unavailable during the system maintenance.
SmartLinking+ is a new service that allows users to link directly from EBSCO databases into the full text of articles found in other vendors' platforms. SmartLinking+ is active wherever you see the words "Linked Full Text" near a search result. For instance, the example below shows a link connecting EBSCO's CINAHL database with a full-text article found in the Wiley Online Library:
During Friday's maintenance, these links will not be available. However, full text contained directly within the EBSCO databases will still be viewable, and Our Journal List/e-Book List can help you find full text when EBSCOhost only has a citation available.
Beginning Saturday, April 25th at 11am, the Library will be open continuously, 24 hours a day during finals week, ending at 5pm on Friday, May 1st. A complete overview of our hours can be found on our calendar.
In conjunction with SHAC, the library will present an informational display for Sexual Assault Awareness Week on the 1st floor of the library from today through Friday, April 17. In addition to books on sexual assault, the display will feature other resources such as fact cards, information sheets, and magnets aimed at spreading awareness and preventing sexual violence in the community.
