Database access restored

Off-campus database access has been restored, and on-campus access should now function seamlessly.

If further problems arise, please email

Database access problems

We are currently experiencing problems with our database authentication software, EZProxy. Off-campus access to databases is currently not working.

On-campus access is still available, but all of our links are designed to use EZProxy. To gain access on-campus, either type the URL of the desired database directly into the address bar or remove the EZProxy prefix ("") from a linked URL.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and are working to rectify the situation as quickly as possible.

Databases Cancelled - Books in Print and Children's Literature Comprehensive Database

After reviewing usage statistics and cost per use for the library's subscription databases, the decision has been made to drop two databases - Books in Print and Children's Literature Comprehensive Database.  Both have had limited use for several years. The decision was made to drop these resources so that the subscription costs could be reallocated to other products that would receive more usage. Links to Books in Print have already been removed from our library's database page. Links to Children's Literature Comprehensive Database will be removed at the end of our current subscription period at the beginning of March 2015. If you have any questions, please contact
