New Emergency Database Password for Summer 2013

The emergency password for accessing the library databases has been changed for Summer 2013. This password can be used to get into the databases when your 800# does not work on this login screen:

ezproxy login






To find the emergency password, log in to Vancko Hall and look under “Site News” at the top of the home screen. The password is also available on the Resnick Library page in Vancko Hall (to get there, look on the right under “Important Links”; make sure you’re looking at the “Welcome” tab). The previous semester’s password will remain active until Monday, June 3rd.

If you have any questions or are unable to login using the emergency password, please contact the library (607-746-4635 or

Advice and Hours for Finals

It’s that time again… there are papers to write, presentations to give, exams to take, and you’re ready for summer to begin. Don’t sweat it! Here are the library’s hours for the final week of classes, May 19-24:

Sunday, May 19, 12 noon-12 midnight

Monday & Tuesday, May 20 & 21, 7 am-12 midnight

Wednesday & Thursday, May 22 & 23, 7 am-10 pm

Friday, May 24, 7 am-5 pm

The library will be closed  May 25-27 for Memorial Day weekend.

And now for some unsolicited finals advice: study hard, but don’t underestimate the value of getting pumped before that big test or presentation. Listen to music that makes you feel like a champion (like this song, below) and go in confident and collected. You can do this!

Don’t forget, we’re here to help while you study and prepare those presentations and papers! Contact us by phone (607-746-4644), e-mail, IM, 24/7 chat, or text your questions to  607-333-7477. Good luck, and congratulations to all the graduates. Have a great summer!
