Oil spill response information

As the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico continues to evolve, there are lots of places to get information about it. This website from the University of South Alabama does a good job of bringing lots of information together in one place:

You Spoke: Graduate/Faculty Study

This is the sixth in a series of posts to respond to findings from the LibQual 2009 survey.

There were several requests to place a lock on the Graduate/Faculty study room on the fourth floor. This would ensure that only those supposed to be in the room had access to it.

As a result of this request, an electronic lock has been installed on the Graduate/Faculty study room. To gain access to the room, hold your university ID up to the lock. All graduate students, current faculty, emeritus faculty, and library personnel have access.

Off-campus database logins

As many of you know, off-campus users were able to log into the library databases using their Blackboard username and password. Since the university is transitioning from Blackboard to BOLT, users will no longer be able to use their Blackboard username and password to access the library databases.

Instead, effective immediately, off-campus users should log into the databases using their BUAD username and password. So, off-campus faculty, staff, and students should log into the databases the same way they log into their computers.
