Celebrating 50 years

March 17, 2017 by

Fifty years ago, March 17, 1967, the Dayton Memorial Library was dedicated. The library opened in 1966 and was named The Dayton Memorial Library in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Dayton. Mrs. Dayton’s bequest of $850,000 to the university vitalized a 3-year fund drive begun in 1962 by Fr. Ryan to build a science building and a library, and was the largest bequest at that time in the history of Regis. Archbishop Urban J. Vehr officiated at the dedication.

“Insecure connection” when connecting to My Account

March 6, 2017 by

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:


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

Digital Doodles exhibit

February 24, 2017 by

Doodling has long been regarded as a distraction and a waste of time; not only the doodler’s time, but also the time of anyone who may be attempting to teach the doodler. René L. DeAnda has discovered the hidden helpfulness doodling provides, as her pen acts as a recording device for not only what is being presented, but for recording the energies present in the vicinity as well. Digital Doodles is a compilation of original and digitized doodles; Ms. DeAnda is very excited to share them with you; the exhibit is on display for the month of February.

linking to ScienceDirect articles

February 10, 2017 by

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.
