NOTICE: Potential Broken Links Wednesday 8/6/14

The Cofrin Library will be updating our guide creation product on Wednesday August 6th.  This may result in broken links and error messages when trying to use the library website, especially the database lists and course guides.  If you are having trouble finding what you need please contact the library at 920-465-2540 or 1-888-729-4611.

If you are attempting to do research and cannot access the databases, please use Search@UW- the main search box on the library website.  Search@UW will locate articles, books, videos, government documents, and more.  If you cannot find what you are looking for in Search@UW, contact the library at 920-465-2540 or 1-888-729-4611.  Or try searching in one of the library’s multidisciplinary databases:

Thank you for your patience while we make improvements to the library resources!

 

Search@UW New Servers

The UW Libraries have been really good this year, so Santa is bringing us new servers for Search@UW!  

We will be migrating to the new servers over the weekend and through Christmas.  The My Account and E-Shelf functionality will be in read-only mode (any changes you make will not be saved) starting on Friday, December 20th around midnight, through whenever the work finishes, possibly as late as December 26th

Search@UW will be completely down on Sunday, December 22nd around midnight through 8 a.m. 

You will still be able to renew items through the Cofrin Library Catalog link below the search box on our home page, or at the service desks in the library, since the circulation system is not impacted by this maintenance.  Please contact us if you need help or have questions!
