Popular Art is the name given to the artistic creations made by peasants, indigenous people or craftsmen with no formal artistic training. A traditional popular art item is handmade and has a functional purpose opposing an art object that is made for aesthetic purposes only, however, in the XXI Century technique has evolved to a more aesthetic representation.

Presented by MexicoFest, we invite all art enthusiasts to attend this free exhibition at the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre on Mexican Popular Art objects.

There continues to be intermittent issues with the eJournal Portal (the tab that says “Journal Titles” on the Library Homepage).

Per the third-party that hosts this service:

“Thanks for the reports of slowness related to the E-journal Portal.  We are aware of the issue… this issue is happening intermittently and is not impacting all customers which has made it difficult to diagnose and definitively address.  For those impacted, we understand this is frustrating and apologize for the inconvenience this is causing you and your users.  We also understand the timing is not great as many of you are starting new school years.”

“[W]e have a series of fixes going out in the next 1-5 weeks that we believe will significantly reduce the instances of slowness (if not fix this issue altogether).”

As a temporary work-around, you can search for a journal title in the Catalogue from here.

…selecting “Journal title begins with” from the dropdown menu, BUT this will only search for journals (electronic and Print) that have a record in the Catalogue.

As always, report any problems – and direct Patrons to do the same – with online resources via our Help Form.
