Catalog and Off-Campus Access Down

March 21, 2016

Update: as of 6:00 p.m. on March 21st, everything is working again!

Today we have some unhappy news--our library catalog server is down, which means the catalog is not accessible to anyone on or off campus. Our user accounts are part of the library catalog system, which means it is currently not possible to log into library systems from off-campus. This means that anything that requires a login--including course reserves, databases, LEO Search, and Journals Search, is not accessible from off-campus.

We are working on fixing the problem, but until it is resolved, we have some suggestions for workarounds we hope will be useful.

If you are on campus, to search for items in the library catalog, go to LEO Search (in the top menu on any library page). Enter your search terms, and then, near the bottom of the page, click the checkbox labelled "In Library Physical Collection (plus some ebooks)." Then click search. This makes it so your results only show items from the catalog. Alternatively, you can just enter your search terms and click search, and then, from the results screen, you can click the "In Library Physical Collection (plus some ebooks)" checkbox, which appears in the left side column.

If you anticipate needing access to course reserves, databases, LEO Search, or Journals Search, we recommend you plan to use these during your time on-campus. Because they authenticate through IP address, you don't even have to be in the library to use them--your computer just has to be on the campus network. Download and print what you need, save it on a flash drive, save it in the cloud, or save it as an email attachment.

We are sorry for the inconvenience; we hope to have everything resolved soon!
