Taylor & Francis Downtime

TC Library subscribes to several journals through the publisher Taylor & Francis. On Wednesday evening T&F (as we insiders call them) will be performing some regularily scheduled maintenance, so if you are unable to access those specific journals (you'll know--Find it will lead you to a Taylor & Francis link), that's why. I win the award for longest sentence.
From their press release:
Taylor & Francis Online will be undergoing maintenance on Wednesday 22nd February 2012, starting at 6pm GMT and finishing by 10pm GMT. The platform will be unavailable for one hour from 6pm, and may be unavailable for a further three hours during the scheduled maintenance window. We will be doing all we can to minimize disruption to the service, and thank you for your patience whilst we perform essential work to keep things running smoothly.
Journals affected include:
  • Archives of Environmental & Occupational Health
  • Journal of Education for Business
  • Journal of In-Service Education
(This is not a comprehensive list. )

"Linked Full Text" not Linking

2/21/12 update: EBSCO full text linking is working again! Hooray!

If while searching in an EBSCO database you encounter an option for full text called "Linked Full Text," chances are good that you'll get a dead end and be unable to access the full text of the article. This error seems to happen in the Internet browser Internet Explorer, but it has been occurring in Firefox and Chrome occasionally as well.

Workaround options:
  • Try accessing the article in a different Internet browser.
  • See a librarian if this happens--we can hopefully work around the error and get you your article.
EBSCO is aware of the issue and is working to fix it.

Images of the carnage:

Love in the Library

TC Library's February book display is all about love. 

Being the original people that we are, we thought that love would be a good theme to go with this month. And actually, since we don't have a bunch of books on love, the theme is more like marriage, couples, getting what you want out of a marriage, and that sort of thing. The assumption is there is love involved.

However, not to discriminate, we also have a lovely selection of materials for people who hate Valentine's Day. Totally cool with us, yo, totally cool.

But, back to love--we'd love if you'd check out our book display this month.
