*They’re back, and all is right with the world!*

Yikes! The Catalogue and InterLibrary Loans (and more) are down at the moment.

Here is the official word:

Voyager is currently unavailable.  Systems staff are working to rectify the issue.  We don’t have a ETA at this time of when Voyager will be available.  This is affecting Circulation, ILL, Opac authentication, reading rooms and various web services.

However, our discovery service, Summon, is still working and our online resources are functioning. To use Summon, go to the Library Homepage and under the “General” tab, insert your search terms. From the results, links to Print Books won’t work, but links to online resources should.

Check out British records on the Atlantic world 1700-1900:

“This series brings together a wealth of collections spanning two centuries of Britain’s colonisation, commercial, missionary and even literary relations with Africa and the Americas. Alongside the records of Liverpool merchants involved in the infamous Triangular Trade, there are those of slave plantation owners, of early Anglican missionaries, of naval and customs officials, and of a group of socialists from Lancashire, who maintained a lengthy correspondence over many years with the father of American poetry.” —British Records on the Atlantic World site

Changes coming to Campus-Wide Log-in: It Will Affect EZproxy Log-in

Posted on October 10, 2013 @2:58 pm by madgett

newsWe have been notified the UBC IT will be making changes to Campus-Wide Log-in password guidelines. This will affect your ability to log into EZproxy:

  • CWL passwords will now need to be changed once a year. CWL account holders  will be asked to update their password on the date of their last CWL password change.  If CWL account holders have not changed their password since creating their account, they will be asked to update their password on the date the account was created.
  •  CWL account holders will be given three opportunities to take action.  If no further action is taken after three opportunities, account holders will not be able to access applications that require CWL, and instead will be redirected to the CWL myAccount page to change their password.
  •  For more information, please visit our CWL FAQs page.

So, be prepared for these changes. Remember, off-campus patrons must go through EZproxy to access online resources.
