Display Issue with Library Catalog Advanced Search

Dear Hubbard Library Patrons,

There is currently a known error in the display of selected databases within the advanced search feature of the library catalog.

Please be aware that the vendor who manages our library catalog (OCLC) is aware of the issue and working on a resolution.

In the meantime, students and faculty are still able to conduct searches from the advanced search page and select their desired databases from the righthand database menu (instructions here). The error does not affect search functionality, but rather the correct database selections do not display properly after clicking “save changes.”

To repeat, the advanced search page will still search your selected databases, and you can (correctly) view which databases are selected by expanding the “All Databases” menu and viewing which boxes are selected. The “Searching Databases” section and (accompanying number) will likely be inaccurate until OCLC provides further updates.

Similarly, the “Reset” button continues to function as normal by restoring the default database selections, but you will need to expand one of the lower menus to see the selections accurately.

Please feel free to email us at lib-systems@fuller.edu if you have any additional questions or would like assistance in using Advanced Search.

Alumni Access to EBSCO Databases

Hello Fuller Alumni Patrons!

 

Due to the vendor updates, you can now access EBSCO databases available for alumni access (EBSCO ebooks, ATLA Serials, Religion Collection, and Audiobook Collection) through our Library Services for Alumni: Electronic Resources page, where you will find a complete list of databases available for alumni patrons. Accessing them through other library sites such as the WorldCat item record page or the Database page may prevent you from viewing the full-text content. 

Please let us know if you have any questions by emailing us at lib-systems@fuller.edu. Thank you!

Library Catalog (WorldCat) and Databases Down (OCLC server error)

Attention:

Starting around noon today, the library catalog (WorldCat) and databases became inaccessible due to an error with our library vendor’s servers (OCLC). Our circulation software has also been affected so that books cannot currently be renewed online. We are still able to check books in and out at the front circulation desk, but we will not be able to provide account updates about fees. We are aware of these problems and have contacted OCLC about the access issues.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and trust that access will be returned within a few hours. We will issue an update when normal operation of our systems has been restored.

Thank you for your understanding and patience!

Library Database Migration > Please Read

In December 2017, the library migrated electronic resources to another server. Therefore, links for library databases has been modified and outdated bookmarks may generate an error message. To avoid access problems, we recommend to access electronic library resources through the library databases portal. If you have any questions, please email lib-systems@fuller.edu. Thank you for your patience!
