MICROBES—tiny organisms too small to be seen with the naked eye—have altered human history. Life forms such as bacteria, yeasts, and molds can cause sickness or restore health, and help produce foods and beverages.

Scientists, in partnership with industry, have developed techniques to harness the powers of these microbes. In recent years, headline-grabbing technologies have used genetically modified bacteria to manufacture new medicines.

A glimpse into the past reveals a history of human enterprise that has adapted these tiny organisms for health and profit. This exhibition explores some of the processes, problems, and potential inherent in technologies that use life.

ExamMaster Off Campus Access

ExamMaster access from off campus has been restored. The service just added a note that “for optimal user experience, use Chrome or Firefox browsers.When using Chrome off campus, we are seeing a security warning but if you accept what they consider a risk than you can get in.

Link resolver not displaying in EBSCOhost databases

The WebBridge LR links are currently not displaying in any EBSCOhost databases, including CINAHL and Academic Search Complete. You will continue to see a link to check the Library’s catalog for all citations in these databases, but you will not see the “Check Full Text” icon:

Cinahl LR No Display

If you do not find a match when clicking the link to check the Library catalog, you can search for the journal or book in the E-Books & E-Journals A to Z List to find whether it is available from another provider.

The issue is being investigated but there is no timeline for when the problem will be fixed. If you need any assistance while this service is unavailable, please contact us.

Finding resources during INNOPAC maintenance

While the Library’s INNOPAC system is offline for maintenance, a number of functions are affected. During this outage the catalog, off-campus access, and link resolver will be unavailable. However, here are a few ways to get the resources you need during this downtime:

  • All print books and journals will be available for checkout; although we will be unable to look up holdings and call numbers, Library staff will assist you in finding the materials you need from anything that is on reserve or in the stacks.
  • All online resources will be available on campus only; when viewing the available databases be sure to click the “On Campus” link:

On Campus

  • If you need an ebook you can use the eBooks LibGuide to find the on-campus links to the electronic books available from various publishers.
  • Although it is also an option for ebooks, the E-Books & E-Journals A to Z List will allow access to the online version of the majority of journals available from the Library.

We hope the outage will not last very long, but Library staff will be ready to answer any questions you have regarding resources while this necessary maintenance is completed. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

BrowZine search options expanded

If you use BrowZine, you might have come across times when you wanted an issue from a year earlier than currently listed, were looking for a journal that was not included, or needed an article where the full-text was not available. We are happy to report that recent enhancements have supplemented your ability to browse more journals and articles.

For the web version, if you find a journal in BrowZine and you would like to see issues earlier than the years that are available click the “View all back issues and sources for this title” after you click the “Change Year” link:

BZ Web Additional Issues

This will bring you to a search of the E-Books & E-Journals A to Z List and shows any additional years and sources the Library has for the full-text of that journal.

Also only available in the web version, if you cannot locate a journal when you search for it, BrowZine now gives you the option to search the E-Books & E-Journals A to Z List for that title:

BZ Web No Match

Finally, a third new feature for the Library’s BrowZine will work in both the web and mobile versions. When you come across an article that might not be available due to restrictions that delay the availability of that article from the source BrowZine uses for the journal, you can now check the Library’s WebBridge Link Resolver for any other places where the full-text is currently available.

If you see a notice that new full-text is unavailable for a journal for a stated amount of time and the article you wish to view is within that time frame, click on the article’s title. In the web version you will see the following notice giving you the opportunity to check for the availability of the article through the link resolver:

BZ Embargo Addl Options Second

If you run across a similar situation when using the app version of BrowZine, click the article title and then “Open” in the popup window that appears:

BZ App LR

Hopefully these new features will help you when you’re using BrowZine, but if you need any assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.
