Catalog Maintenance

The Library Catalog will be undergoing maintenance beginning Friday May 26 through Monday May 29. During this time, electronic books and journals may not show up in the journal and book search results.

Access to our eBooks will be available for the duration by going directly to either AccessMedicine or ClinicalKey depending on where the book is published. This maintenance will not affect the E-journal Finder, Database List, Request Materials (ILLiad), or our Find It! button.

Once the work is complete, all of our electronic resources will appear in the catalog again.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
