It was just brought to our attention that the EZProxy system that allows off-campus access to Corcoran Library databases is acting up. We have alerted the IT department and will be working to get that running as soon as possible. In the meantime, please feel free to contact us (IM chat, e-mail, call) if you need assistance accessing readings or conducting research. The databases are still working on campus. Our apologies for the inconvenience.
There will be no Georgetown librarian office hours this Thursday. If you need to meet with a librarian for help with research or finding images, please stop by the downtown library or make an appointment.
The Library has added the Contemporary Artists Index (CAI) to our Databases A to Z page. The CAI is a resource developed and maintained by the Cleveland Institute of Art's Gund Library staff. CAI indexes approximately 20,000 artists, artists groups, photographers, craftspeople, designers, and design firms whose work appears in group exhibition catalogs added to the Gund Library since 1991, as well as the video periodical Art Today and View, a periodical specializing in artist interviews. Note that the index includes Gund Library call numbers.
For the remainder of the fall semester, librarian office hours at Georgetown will be held noon-4 pm on Thursdays, unless otherwise posted on the CL website and Facebook page. Look for Jacqueline Protka in the Student Lounge or around the building for help with finding articles, books, or images; guidance on research strategies; or just to chat.
The EZProxy server is back online and off-campus access to CL databases is restored, thanks to our trusty IT team. If you continue experiencing problems, please contact the Library at 202-478-1544. If you need a refresher on logging into CL databases from home, watch this brief video tutorial. Thanks for your patience!
