eBook availability for Christian Theology : an Introduction

Greetings!
Please note that the ebook availability of the following title has been suspended until December.
  • McGrath, Alister E. 2011. Christian Theology : An Introduction. Fifth ed. Chichester, West Sussex, United Kingdom: Wiley-Blackwell.
We have contacted the content provider regarding the issue and found out that the title has been removed from the vendor and is no longer available for sale.
We have a non-linear access model with this title which is a perpetual access license. This model allows for unlimited concurrent access but has a set number of lending days per year, usually 325 days. The combined number of loan days per year cannot exceed the maximum days of use allotment. We are not able to purchase additional days since the title is not available for sale anymore.  Our loan days will renew on the anniversary of the purchase date. Unfortunately, this will happen later in the year since we’ve added the title in the month of December. Until then, access to the book is not available.

Apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused. The title is available for personal purchases through Amazon eTextbook or you may request parts of the book (2 chapters or 10% of the book, whichever is less) to be scanned through a Scan-on-Demand service.

Lastly, if you are on campus, you can check out the book in person for 2 hours at a time.

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!

Applicants Needed – Library Digital Resources Peer Group

Fuller Library is looking for 5 – 6 individuals to form the Library Digital Resources Peer Group. This informal group will work closely with the Head of Electronic Services in the procurement of new electronic resources for the David Allan Hubbard Library. The group will “meet” 3 times a year, the first usually being one week after the quarter begins. The initial meeting is to receive a list of resources to peruse and try out on your own time, with a deadline of submitting feedback being two weeks before finals.

We need people from the following areas / groups: SOP, SIS, SOT, Korean / Spanish speakers, on-campus groups, students, faculty, and staff. Alumni may be added in the future, depending on if we can locate eResources that allow for outside current status.

If you are interested, please fill out this application by September 6. Email lib-systems@fuller.edu with any questions you may have!
