“Free access to information is a core American value that should be protected,” said Judith F. Krug, director of the ALA Office for Intellectual Freedom. “Not every book is right for each reader, but an individual’s interpretation of a book should not take away my right to select reading materials for my family or myself."
From EBSCO: "We are pleased to announce that your Social Work Abstracts database subscription has been enhanced, as we have digitized the citations included in the print journal Social Work Abstracts, back to the first volume and issue. To accomplish this, we worked with the publisher, the National Association of Social Workers, to deepen the coverage back to March 1966.
Just an FYI-- EBSCO is planning on implementing upgrades to their MyEBSCOhost feature on Tuesday, May 6... The implementation process may cause the MyEBSCOhost functionality to be unavailable (this includes the marked folders feature of EBSCO databases).
Electricity in the Green Library will be turned off on Saturday May 3 around 5:00pm to allow FLP to repair a persistent problem in our electrical system. They expect to restore power by Sunday morning (May 4).
During this period, our servers will be without power so our website, the library catalog, and all electronic databases and journals will not be available.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
