Library systems and heartbleed bug

We’d like to reassure you that all the library’s systems have been checked for vulnerabilities to the “heartbleed” bug by our campus IT security officer, the network guys in the UW System, and our vendors.  Our systems are just fine.  You may want to check with other sites you log into to see if they have had issues or been updated, and you may want to change some of your passwords if the sites have been updated to plug the security hole.  If they have not been updated yet, it’s best to wait until they are.  (Otherwise your new password will just leak out anyway.)

As you may have been relaxing over Spring Break and refueling for the second half of the semester, the Cofrin Library was hard at work picking out some great books to add to our collection.

We have really added some great new titles to the library shelves this month! To search for the call number and location, type the book title into the Search@UW box on the library homepage.

Donation in honor of Kevin P. Reilly

Chancellor Harden recently presented a copy of Samuel Beckett: The Complete Dramatic Works to the Cofrin Library.  This book is part of a larger collection in honor of Kevin P. Reilly who served as the University of Wisconsin System President from 2004 until 2013, that was presented to each of the UW system libraries.  The dedication in each book reads “This is one of a set of Irish literature books given to UW institutions to honor UW System’s sixth president, Kevin P. Reilly, champion of more graduates, proud Irish American, published scholar in Irish Studies, and devoted connoisseur of poetry – fondly known for reading a poem at virtually every Board of Regent’s meeting.” Chancellor Harden’s personal dedication reads “It is an honor to have this volume in our library to recognize President Reilly’s steadfast commitment to public higher education.”
