Journal/article linker downtime Feb. 8th-9th

Beginning at 6pm on Friday, February 8th, our e-journal portal (our “Locate a Journal” search”) and the article linker (“Check for full text” links) will be unavailable for up to 24 hours due to a data center migration. The vendor hopes to minimize the downtime as much as possible but because of the complexity of the work it may take 24 hours.

We expect these applications to be restored by 6pm on Saturday, February 9th. We’ll update this post as we have more information.

Wild Hope documentary

December 14, 2018 by

Wild Hope is a short documentary by Suez Jacobson, Professor Emerita, Regis College, and Dave Devine, Digital Content Project Manager, DML. Wild Hope tells the story of our deep spiritual connection to the natural world, a connection that has the power to rewire our brains and change how we should think and act toward a world needing our care. The documentary combines personal experiences and scientific evidence to illustrate the need to confront climate change.

Wild Hope is available to view online. You can learn more about Dr. Jacobson and the film on the Wild Hope website. It has been entered in film festivals and was just selected by the Impact Docs Awards.
