NFB Campus Outage Jan. 18, 2017

 On Wednesday, January 18, the NFB will be doing maintenance on NFB CAMPUS. You will not be able to sign in to CAMPUS or use its features tomorrow between the hours of 3 a.m. and 9 a.m.

To watch CAMPUS films or play your chapters during these hours, create a playlist of films or chapters and share the playlist using your own e-mail address, before 3 a.m. tomorrow. The url that is generated when you use the "Share" function will link to the playlist without asking you to sign in to CAMPUS.

For help with any CAMPUS features, at any time, please contact the library.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Astrophysical Data System (ADS) added to Research Databases

The Astrophysical Data System, produced by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory,  is a detailed index to astrophysical research reports and data. ADS provides links to arXiv, publisher's sites and other repositories. Although the database itself is free to search, we have proxied the database so that students/faculty will be able to connect to the licensed scholarly journal articles from publishers such as Springer, Elsevier and Wiley.
The database is useful for astronomy and astrophysics research.
