Lexicomp access will continue as expected. Users should no longer see an alert related to the subscription end-date, which was the result of an oversight by the vendor. If you continue to see this alert, please let us know via Ask A Librarian.
As some library users may have noticed this week, there is currently a banner displayed when logging into Lexicomp that mentions the database's subscription is due for renewal. We are aware of this issue and are working with PCP and the database vendor to resolve the issue. In the meantime, you should not need to take any personal action to sustain your access to Lexicomp. We will provide updates on accessing this resource as they become available.
This morning's maintenance to the library's Research Guides system is complete. All of our guides, including "Databases A-Z" and "Resources in Your Major" are accessible again via the library's website. Our Research Guides have been upgraded to a new platform that incorporates responsive design and will allow for more dynamic content going forward. Thank you for your patience as we worked to improve this important library system.
On Tuesday July 21st, the library's Research Guides will be undergoing maintenance as we work to upgrade this system to a new platform. Research Guides includes such portions of the library website as "Databases A-Z" and the "Resources in Your Major" pages. Maintenance will begin at 9 AM and is likely to last several hours. During this timeframe, the Research Guides system will be unavailable to users. We will post updates to Blackboard and the library blog once maintenance is complete and access has returned to normal.
During the maintenance window, we will post an alternate version of "Databases A-Z" on the library's website so campus users will retain access to all the library databases during this system upgrade. Should you have any questions, please contact the library via Ask a Librarian, and thank you for your patience as we work to improve the library user experience.
Due to ongoing library systems upgrades, ILLiad users will experience delays in the processing of their ILLiad requests. E-ZBorrow requests for books are not affected by this maintenance. Updates will be posted in Blackboard and here on the Library's blog.
