Ebola: Get the Facts

Every day we're hearing more about Ebola. Much of the information is accurate, but some is not. Not every Ebola resource can be trusted, and the trustworthy sources can be lost among the profiteers and fearmongers.

You can find reliable sources of information on the Library's Public Health subject guide. We have put together a list of resources on the guide's Ebola page where you can get the facts from sources we trust.

Database Access Is Working

Thanks to the hard work of ADU's dedicated IT staff, the Library's proxy server is repaired, and our resources are once again accessible off campus.

Off Campus Database Access Issues

We are experiencing issues with off-campus and wireless access to the Library's databases, ebooks, and other electronic resources.

When you attempt to access the Library's resources from home or from the ADU wireless network, you may see the following error: Inter-institutional access failure. Please contact your system administrator for assistance.

The problem is with the Library's proxy server. We are working to resolve the problem as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your patience

Ovid Training Workshop On Demand

Ovid ADU Training

On Oct. 1, the Library hosted a free Ovid research workshop by expert Ovid trainer Glenn McAlpine. Mr. McAlpine gave a great presentation on using Ovid databases such as Medline and the Joanna Briggs Institute EBP. I enjoyed the workshop and learned quite a few tips and tricks to effective searching in Ovid.

If you missed the workshop, it's not too late to learn the ins and outs of research on Ovid. Thanks to the staff at the ADU Center for Educational Technology, you can view an on-demand recording of the workshop here on the Library website.

The workshop recording is two hours long. The first hour is a basic introduction to Ovid, and the second hour is a look at advanced features. The recording is divided into three-minute segments that you can navigate using the thumbnails below the video.

Where Are The Librarians?
Where's Waldo

Do you know where the librarians are? We're usually in the Library, but we also show up other places around campus. Want to know how to find us? Here are some hints. On Mondays between 12 and 1, one of us will be somewhere in the Graduate Building (try looking on the first floor and in the third floor study room). On Tuesdays, a librarian will be somewhere in the NESS Café between 11 and 12.

Keep an eye out for the librarians, and if you find us, stop and ask us questions or just say hi.
