Library Subscribes to Luthers Werke

Following our trial subscription in May, Fuller Libraries have added The Weimar Edition of Luthers Werke to our collection of electronic resources.

Luther's_Werke

The online version of The Weimar Edition of Luthers Werke is a complete collection of Luther’s writings. It is one of the largest editions of any individual author ever to have been created. This monumental work, of which the first volume was published in 1883, consists over 117 quarto volumes and is now published in full. Luthers Werke provides an indispensable historical-critical tool for theologians, historians, linguists and literary critics carrying out research into Luther’s life and work.

Martin Luther (1483-1546) is one of the central figures in the development of European cultural and intellectual history. This is as a result of not only his theological influence but also his contribution to the development of New High German.

The Weimar Edition of Luthers Werke is published in electronic form by ProQuest with the co-operation and support of the publishers Hermann Böhlaus Nachfolger Weimar GmbH & Co.

UPDATE: Authentication issues resolved

Earlier this month, we reported on an issue with Fuller Library users unable to access our electronic resources remotely. The issue has been resolved.

All of our current students, staff, and faculty should be able to log in with their new Fuller ID. If you have not reset your password, you should be directed to do so at: reset2015.fuller.edu.

Recent error messages experienced by our Moodle users when trying to access a permalink from our databases are now fixed as well.

For our alumni, access to electronic resources still remains separate and is not yet integrated with the new Fuller ID. Please visit the library’s alumni pages at infoguides.fuller.edu/libraryalumni and follow the instructions on the main page for remote access to selected databases.

We invite all Fuller Library users who experience any issues to please complete the support form at: http://infoguides.fuller.edu/survey.php?survey_id=4787

Thank you!

Issue With Remote Access to Library eResources

systemupgradeFuller is currently experiencing an issue with authenticating some users trying to access library electronic resources from a remote location using the new Fuller ID.

Meanwhile, if you have changed your Fuller ID password but cannot log into the library system (library databases, eBooks), please e-mail us at lib-info@fuller.edu. We will respond within the hour and provide you with temporary credentials until access is restored.
We apologize for the inconvenience.

It’s a Season of Jubilee at the Library!

As you have probably heard by now, the David Allan Hubbard Library is in the midst of migrating to its new software system, OCLC WorldShare Management Services (OCLC WMS). Things are going quite well and we will continue to keep you posted on any developments that affect you.

And here’s some good news right now: The staff has ever so graciously decided not to migrate any late book fines during the transition! So, if you receive any overdue notices, please disregard them.

There is one exception: library materials that have been lost still need to be replaced, and the fees for those missing items will migrate to the new system.  Note that only the cost of lost items are due; all other processing fees attached to purchasing and cataloging replacement materials have now been waived.

If the migration is news to you, read below for a brief description of benefits you can expect after the transition is complete. Also, you can keep current with all the library’s happenings by signing up for email updates  right here at http://fullerlibrarynews.com/.

The move to OCLC WMS will help the library streamline cataloging, acquisitions, circulation, license management and workflows, and offer a next-generation discovery and delivery tool for library users. Features of this tool include:

  • Google-like searching which delivers content from the library (print and content from most subscription databases) and the world’s library collections,
  • Integration with Interlibrary Loan services (ILL) which makes it easier for users to locate and request materials from other libraries,
  • Social networking including user-contributed reviews, ratings, lists, tags, integration with Facebook, digg, etc.,
  • Citation creation for many formats, and exportation to EndNote and other bibliography software,
  • and, mobile interfacing.
