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

De-Stress in the Library

Students, YIKES!  The end of the semester is upon us, finals are just around the corner, and the pressure is on. Stop by the second floor of Meriam Library where we can help you relax and recharge.  Come up to the 2nd floor at the top of the steps to enjoy some free and fun activities.  A table will be stocked with a variety of items including games, puzzles, paper, crayons and graphic novels. Our goal is to offer a welcome diversion, allowing you to unwind, slow down, take a break and disengage from studying for a few minutes.
