*UPDATE*

sigh… The joy was short lived as the site seems to have a few quirks. We will try some experimentation to get this resolved. We are leaving the site up for now. Let us know if it gets too unstable. Stay tuned.

Previously…

Investext, for those who have been eagerly awaiting it’s return, is back. Try it here. You may or may not need to retieve the Username and Password as sometimes Investext remembers it all from the last person’s  login. And a word of caution: Internet Explorer seems to be the preferred browser. Sorry, Firefox fans.

Barber Learning Centre

From April 14-30, study areas in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre will be open round the clock. Some parts of the Centre, including Ike’s Cafe, will close at the usual time, but core study space will be available all night long.

  • More details, including individual Barber Centre Service hours.
  • Information about library hours at other branches.
  • Mostly, yes. If you want the full browser story from ebrary, visit here.

    • you must use Java 1.6 or higher
    • you must have browser cookies enabled and you may need to turn off pop-up blockers for ebrary.com
    • use Internet Explorer 5.x or newer ( if running under Windows you need only go view a book)
    • use Firefox 1.0.4 or newer (if running under Windows Firefox should handle the installation automatically. If you need to actively install the reader, you should read Installation - PC Firefox )
    • Use Safari 1.1 or newer (but you have to install. To install ebrary Reader for Mac OS X read Installation - Mac OS X. For Mac OS 9 read Installation - Mac OS 9.
    • Opera, iCab, NeoPlanet, Linux/Unix and WebTV are not supported at this time.

    So, there you have it. I’ve viewed ebrary ebooks in Firefox, I.E. and Safari, and the reader worked fine. Yes, the first time can be annoying if a browser needs set up (*NOTE: on UBC Library Public stations users will have to load the reader each time they log in). But the full features of the reader –printing, copying, adding notes, etc– are worth it.

    CAUTION: the reader can be damn slow to load… and there is often no little hourglass or spinning wheel or wiggling whatevers as it loads. Be patient. Remember, reading is possible in the Quick View mode, you just don’t get the fancy add-ons of the reader (i.e. no printing).

    Try ebrary at e-Duke or Canadian Publisher’s Collection.

    InfoMarkHave you ever seen this icon when searching in a Gale database (Business & Company Resource Center, Sabin Americana, and Literature Criticism Online to name 3 of several)? What it means is that the URL at the top of the page (in the browser’s window) is persistent… it lasts long after you have left the database. So, you can bookmark it, cut&paste it into an email, save it, whatever, and go back to that same page later. This includes pages where you have compiled a list of results from a search. Read the full detials, and fine print, at Gale’s InfoMark.

    Note: For InfoMark to work, your browser must be set to accept cookies. (And everyone you email it to must have access to a Gale database)
