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


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!

Greetings from Electronic Resources Generalist

Hello Fuller community!

My name is Timothy Grasso and I will now be serving in the David Allan Hubbard Library as our new Electronic Resources Generalist. I will have the pleasure of working with the Electronic Resources Librarian, Daniell Whittington, in maintaining library website functionality and content, facilitating student and faculty access to e-resources, and contributing to e-resource collection development.

Next week, I will be announcing dedicated e-resource help desk hours!  This will provide me with more opportunity to help, both in-person and online, with any e-resource access or functionality questions you may have.

I am excited about this new position, and I look forward to working with you to improve your Fuller library experience soon!

Power up those brain-cells and quiet the growling! Cereal is waiting for you.

When: TODAY, 10/11

Where: The Library Lobby

Time: 10am – 12pm (or until supplies run out.)

Happy munching!
