On Saturday, 3/14, EBSCO will be performing scheduled maintenance on some of their systems from approximately 9am-9pm EDT.
This means that “Link to Full Text” links and the Find Articles-> By Journal Title search will not be available during this time.
To be clear, you will still be able to search EBSCO databases and access PDF and HTML full text during this time. Only links to full text in other databases (those that say “Link to Full Text” or “Full Text through LinkSource”) will be affected. You will also be unable to search by journal title or exact citation.
We apologize for the inconvenience. If you have any questions about this or would like to plan alternate ways to access content during this downtime, please contact the reference desk (607-746-4644 or email@example.com).
Hours for the spring semester are:
The Library will close for Spring Break on Friday April 3rd at 5pm and remain closed until Sunday April 12th at 6pm.
EBSCO has notified us that the problems with PDF loading have been resolved. A quick check of our databases shows that everything is functioning normally once again. If you continue to experience issues with this, please contact the electronic resources librarian directly (firstname.lastname@example.org, 607-746-4734). Thank you for your patience during the outage.
We are currently experiencing technical issues with the library’s EBSCO databases. PDF articles from these databases (which include the MILO search box on the library’s home page, CINAHL, Academic Search Complete, and others) will not load. EBSCO is aware of the issue and is working hard to resolve it.
In the meantime, you can still access articles from our non-EBSCO databases like Science Direct or Academic OneFile. If you have questions about alternative ways to search for articles, please contact the reference desk (607-746-4644 or email@example.com).
We apologize for the inconvenience and will post an update as soon as we hear that the problem has been fixed.
During the month of March, Resnick Library has a question for you:
If a library genie could grant you three library wishes, what would they be?
Look for the display table in the library to fill out a slip with your three wishes and drop them into our magic lamp! Online students can submit their wishes here.
Q and A
Q: How long do I have to make wishes?
A: The lamp will be available in the library until Friday, April 3rd, the last day before Spring Break.
Q: Can I put more than three wishes in the lamp?
A: Everyone remembers the immortal words of the genie in Disney’s Aladdin: “Ixnay on the wishing for more wishes!” However, if you’ve weighed the consequences and you think you can get away with it, wish as many times as you want.
Q: Is there really a library genie who will grant these wishes?
A: Maybe… the library genie will try to grant as many wishes as possible this semester, but all wishes will be considered for future library plans and decision-making. Keep an eye on the display to see if your wish has been granted!
Q: What magic lamp? All I see is a watering can.
A: Well, if a library genie could grant our wishes, we’d wish for an actual lamp.
The Library will close at 5pm on Friday February 20th. The Library will re-open at 6pm on Sunday March 1st.
Hours after break will be:
Monday-Thursday: 7:30am-12 midnight
Saturday: 12 noon – 5pm
Sunday: 12 noon – 12 midnight
