NOTE: Outages on Monday October 18 and November 11

Due to server and software upgrades, some electronic library resources will be unavailable on Monday, October 18 and Monday, November 1. Westlaw and Lexis are NOT affected by this outage. Below is a list of what will be offline. On each occasion, whether the outage will last the entire day is uncertain; the library will send an email when the resources are back up and running.


Scholar, the library online catalog, will be unavailable: no books can be checked out or renewed and no local or OhioLINK holds can be placed during the downtime.


All databases authenticated through the Michael Schwartz Library servers will be unavailable: this includes HeinOnline databases, EBSCO databases, and Proquest Congressional (please note: the databases will still be accessible if you are on campus).

If you are working from home on October 18 or November 1 and cannot access a resource because of the outage, please email or call 212-687-2250. We may be able to get to an item and email it to you, as resources should work for us inside the building.
