Everyone, an update to the hours, impacted by the storm. The Music & Arts Library (and all Columbia Libraries) will be closed on Tuesday, 10/30. We expect to re-open for normal hours on Wed, 10/31 but please stay tuned for possible updates. Note that Butler Library will remain open for basic study space access (no regular services). Music reference questions can continue to be sent to email@example.com. We will respond to the best of our abilities. Hope you all weather the storm safely and comfortably!
Happy New Year! May your 2012 be full of good music. Please let us know how we can help you with your research and information needs for the coming year, and, look forward to seeing you in the Music & Arts Library!
Proquest has announced scheduled maintenance on its databases, starting at 10pm on Thursday, 5/5, and lasting approximately 2 hours.
The principal music-related databases affected are the International Index to Music Periodicals (IIMP) and Proquest Digital Dissertations.
As an alternative, you can try Music Index Online and RILM. If you are looking for known music journal titles, you can also try searching the journal title in CLIO, for alternate electronic access through other vendors.
This will also impact “ProQuest platform products (including the new platform), ProQuest Historical Newspapers, American Periodicals Series, Genealogy and local history products including African American Heritage, Ancestry Library Edition, HeritageQuest Online, Historic Map Works Library Edition, ProQuest Obituaries and Digital Sanborn Maps, UMI products including ProQuest Digital Microfilm and online dissertation products.”
Hopefully, Proquest will complete work as scheduled, and the disruption will not be too great. Thanks for your patience, and, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The library will be closed Thursday 11/25 – Sunday 11/28. Regular hours will resume on Monday, 11/29. Thanksgiving hours for other campus libraries are available here. Happy Thanksgiving!
STRESSED? Perhaps to take the edge of mid-terms, take a moment to watch/listen to composer Richard Grayson‘s rather amazing improvisation on the Darth Vader theme from Star Wars, as re-imagined, channeling Beethoven. One commenter imagined Darth Vader, running through a meadow… enjoy!
