Database Maintenance

Wiley Outages 10/7 and 10/8

Wiley, one of the databases Meriam Library has access to, has planned a maintenance outage this weekend. From Wiley:

Notice: Wiley Online Library will be unavailable on Saturday 7th Oct from 00.00 PST to 05.00 PST  and Sunday 8th Oct from 00.00 PST to 03.00 PST for essential maintenance. Apologies for the inconvenience.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Research and Subject Guides Updated

The Meriam Library is in the process of updating and modernizing our Research and Subject guides - the popular subject, course, and topic guides created by librarians and staff at the Meriam Library. These guides help patrons locate articles, books, and other research as well as assist in evaluating information, assessing research credibility, and citing. The transfer from the old guides to the new guides will happen on Thursday, January 21st.

Ebrary Ebooks Catalog Maintenance

The library is updating our catalog records for Ebrary ebooks. This process was started on Thursday, Jan. 14th and is scheduled to be finished by Monday, Jan. 18th. During this time, most of the Ebrary ebooks will not be available via the Meriam Library catalog, but they are searchable and available through the Ebrary database.

JSTOR Connection Issues

We have been experiencing connection issues with JSTOR today (10/12/15). We have reported the problem and have heard from many libraries who are also experiencing the same issues.

The main issues:

- JSTOR connecting slowly or timing out

- If connected, JSTOR does not recognize our institution and does not provide access to the article

What should you do?

There is no estimate of when this issue will be resolved. For the time being, save your citation and check back later.
