“Insecure connection” when connecting to My Account

March 6, 2017

You may have experienced a message in Firefox or Chrome indicating “Your connection is not secure” or an “Insecure Connection” error when connecting to My Account in the Library catalog:

https://lumen.regis.edu/patroninfo

The error is caused by browsers beginning to roll out a new security measure; each browser is handling the transition a little bit differently. Chrome has been rolling out this new security protocol fairly consistently while in Firefox the new security measure has been rolled out less consistently. We are not seeing the error in Internet Explorer at this time.

You can get around the errors fairly easily with these steps:

In Firefox > On error page click Advanced > click Add Exception > Click Confirm Security Exception

In Chrome > On error page click Advanced > click Proceed to lumen.regis.edu

linking to ScienceDirect articles

February 10, 2017

There is an issue with linking from the article linker (when you click on Check for Full Text) to article links for journals in ScienceDirect. If you click on an article link, this message displays when you pass through to ScienceDirect:

Sorry, your request can not be processed due to a system problem. Contact the Help Desk if the problem persists. [SD-009]

Our provider will be putting a fix in place on Feb. 21st.

For the links that result in the SD-009 error, the simplest workaround is to use the Journal link instead and then navigate to the volume/issue. While not ideal, you can still get to the full text.

International Open Access Week

Open Access Week is an annual global event now in its eighth year, promoting Open Access as the new default in scholarship and research. It is an opportunity for the academic and research community to learn about the potential benefits of Open Access, to share what they’ve learned with colleagues, and to help inspire wider participation in helping to make Open Access a new norm in scholarship and research.

Regis University Library proudly hosts multiple open access resources in ePublications at Regis University, our institutional repository. Browse our student authored publications that have enduring value as records of original research and are actively read and referred to by Regis University students and faculty, as well as outside researchers across the globe.

Browse articles in Jesuit Higher Education: A Journal (JHE), a scholarly, peer reviewed, open access, online journal focused on the development, advancement, and critique of higher education in the Jesuit tradition.

Check out the Open Access Week website for more information about how you can get involved.

January 20, 2015

The Regis University Library is very excited to connect our students with the Denver Public Library (DPL). Regis University students now have streamlined access to Denver Public Library resources! With 26 locations throughout Denver, there’s a branch of the Denver Public Library close to you. In addition, DPL offers lots of online services that you can access anywhere.

The process is simple. You opt in by visiting http://denverlibrary.org/library-card to complete the online registration form, selecting “Regis University” in the form’s College or University drop down menu. You’re issued an online library number that allows you access to DPL’s online resources, including eMedia (ebooks, audio books, electronic magazines), databases, and Volume music project.

Prospector and Mobius

August 6, 2014

The Colorado Alliance of Research Libraries has embarked on a new project, connecting the Prospector catalog to the Mobius system in Columbia, Missouri. The Mobius consortium has 71 members, which include 61 academic libraries, 5 public libraries, 2 special libraries, the Missouri State Library, and 2 Associate Members.

If a user doesn’t find what he/she is looking for in Prospector, there will be a button in Prospector to search for the item in the Mobius catalog. If the item is found in Mobius, the user can place the request just as they would place a request in Prospector. They will authenticate with the appropriate information and select a pick up location for delivery.

The project just launched yesterday and testing of the request feature is still underway. We are not sure yet how long it will take for items from Mobius libraries to arrive. Please send any problems to Access Services at 303-458-4030 or circdesk@regis.edu.
