New Emergency Database Password for J-Term & Spring 2014

The emergency password for accessing the library databases has been changed for J-Term & Spring 2014. This password can be used to get into the databases when your 800# does not work on this login screen:

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 Wednesday, January 8th.

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

Closed Saturdays and Sundays

Closed for the holidays December 21st-January 5th

Special hours will be posted for Winter Orientation (January 18 & 19) and regular semester hours resume on Monday, January 20th.

Whether you’re taking an online class or just taking some time to relax, we hope you have an enjoyable break that helps you to recharge and return ready to tackle the spring semester!

It’s beginning to look a lot like finals…

It’s unmistakable: the library is crowded, all of our laptops are loaned out, and there’s a palpable sense of tension/dread/excitement in the air– must be time for finals! When it’s time to write that paper, study for that exam, or paste together your group project, the library is here for you with special finals week hours. From December 15-20, library hours will be as follows:

Sunday, 12 pm-12 midnight

Monday-Wednesday, 7 am-12 midnight

Thursday, 7 am-10 pm

Friday, 7 am-5 pm

Because the library will be open at 7 am, you can stop in to print, check your e-mail, or grab a lucky pencil even if you have a 7:30 am exam. Good luck with all your final tests and assignments, and don’t forget to ask for help when you need it– that’s what we’re here for!
