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.
