US Government Shutdown

Well, it happened.  The US government has shutdown. Let's hope you didn't have a trip planned to visit the Smithsonian or Yellowstone today.

Due to the current government shutdown, many web based resources may be affected, including databases used for research like ERIC at eric.ed.gov.  But don't worry you can still access ERIC through our EBSCO provider.  Although, you might run into some issues if you attempt to retrieve any ERIC documents that link to the eric.ed.gov site.

For a list of affected government agencies and services, check out this website.

This shutdown begins October 1, 2013, and will continue until they sort this mess out, meaning until further notice.

If you have any questions or need any assistance, please call the Reference Desk at 460-7025.
