**UPDATE** Problem resolved. Connection now goes from EZproxy into Books 24×7 site on 1st attempt. Now go read Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X for Dummies.

Books 24x7 logoIf you have tried to connect to a Books 24×7 title lately, you may have noticed a small glitch. On the first attempt through EZproxy (where you enter your UBCcard Barcode and PIN), you land on the “Blue Box” log in screen for Books 24×7. Don’t panic or try to figure out what to enter. Use your browsers Back button and enter EZproxy again. On the second attempt (as long as you don’t clear you cookies) you will connect to your book.

Why is this? Top people are working on that question right now. Stay tuned.

*UPDATE* - Links working now.
Ebsco Host logo
Somewhere, someone altered all the internal journal IDs for the MEDLINE with Full Text titles (not us, honest!). As a result, links from our ejournal A-Z list and our eLink button go to a mostly blank Ebsco Host page.
If you click on “Publications” in the upper left of that page, you can re-search your journal there. A pain, yes, but we are working to resolve it. Stay tuned.

CISTI logo
Some people using the most recent versions of Firefox and Internet Explorer are having problems ordering material via CISTI Orders. The problem has been reported.

For now, please use the InterLibrary Loan forms… and stay tuned.

May and June in the David Lam Library

In May and June, the rhythms of the David Lam Library change. As the roar of the undergraduate presence diminishes, a different kind of researcher comes our way - the MBA intern, the visiting student, the Sauder PhD student working on a summer project, or the researcher from across campus. What these diverse clients share is a need for in-depth and often complex consultation, sometimes in applied areas and often requiring unusual numeric data. The number of individual reference questions falls, but the consultations require exceptional attention and expertise, and challenge us in new ways.

The often quieter pace of summer allows us to to think creatively about how we do things - support our users, prepare in-class instruction, and translate the complex world of information resources into something understandable. We also try to accomplish a few large projects each summer. This summer we are evaluating all of our corporate financial databases, analyzing where overlaps and gaps exist. We’re revamping our Research Guides - the online guides we create on topics or assignments for our students. We are also going to implement a new knowledge management product, which will allow our users to ask questions of an intelligent FAQ database, developed by librarians at the Wharton School. And as part of our continuing e-volution, we’re investigating e-books and have recently purchased a set of business e-books from Palgrave (more details to come).

We continue to plan a Learning Commons which will be situated in the David Lam Library, and will feature integrated services to enhance student learning, in collaboration with other groups on campus and at Sauder.

Now is the perfect time for faculty members to drop by and have a one-on-one session with a librarian - on a topic of importance to you. Do you want to find out what’s in Datastream? Learn how to use Bloomberg? Set up current awareness services using our databases? Identify resources for an assignment? Please feel free to contact Christina, Lindsay or myself or come and visit us.
