Limited database access

September 16, 2019

We have been reaching out to our database vendors to determine what alternate authentication might be available for our licensed resources until the network and authentication are restored.

Current Regis students, faculty and staff can use the link below to find access information for some library databases; we will continue to add to this list as we’re able to establish more access points.

Regis users will be prompted to request access to the site; our staff will be monitoring this and responding to these requests daily from 8am – 10pm. If it is outside those hours we will respond as quickly as we can.

Some databases are temporarily set to default to full text results. The “Check for Full Text” links do work in any of the index/abstract databases, however the only links that are working through the article linker are ones going to open access platforms (Directory of Open Access Journals, etc.)

Safari Books Online coming soon

June 14, 2019

Coming soon – we will be transitioning to the new Safari Books Online platform. There are several significant changes with this transition, including unlimited simultaneous users! Due to an unforeseen issue, we expect the upgrade to take place during the week of July 1st.

Users must register with aRegis email address. You will then need to validate your account using the link in the email you receive.

o Any user with a @regis.edu email will be able to authenticate and create an account.
o Users accessing the Safari materials will be presented with a patron validation screen and prompted to enter their Regis email address. Once they enter their email they will immediately be logged in.
o At this point, the user will also receive an email to complete the account setup. The account setup asks them to create a password to fully activate their account. If the user decides they do not want to complete the account setup that is fine. However, setting up the account and a password allows users to use the O’Reilly app for off-line viewing of content.

The new platform upgrade will include the following perks:

o NEW! Multi-modal formats delivered from a single platform
o NEW! A completely redesigned interface, built for intuitive use
o Easy-to-use mobile app, with offline learning for easy answers on the go
o Content from over 250 of the world’s best publishers with access to over 41,000 titles
