WebAccess Issues

We've gotten some reports that WebAccess has been down a bit over the last few days. We hear CSM's tech team has been working with the vendor to get the issue fixed. They hope to have everything running smoothly by Wednesday.

Just checking in

We're now a few weeks into the Fall semester at CSM and most of you have fallen into a rhythm and are starting to get deep into your research. Don't forget about all the great resources that you can find in the library including helpful librarians, eBooks, and subscription databases. If you can't make it into the library and you have a library card, you can still access all these resources from home. The library's online resources can be found here at http://collegeofsanmateo.edu/library/databases.php. If you need help navigating these materials, you can call, email, or IM a librarian. See our contact information at http://collegeofsanmateo.edu/library/reference.php. Good luck, and don't forget to write.
