Although Spring Break is a time for relaxation, fun, and volunteer opportunities for many students at Coe, some students may find that they still need to do some work on their coursework in order to stay caught up and get things turned in on time. If you find yourself in that situation, just remember that the library makes many of its databases and ebooks accessible from off campus for student and faculty use. The important thing is that in order to use the library's resources from anywhere other than Coe, you must log in through My.Coe, and from there you must access the database or ebook that you want through the Campus Life tab. You can't go through the library's webpage directly as we have to verify that you are in fact affiliated with Coe. Not sure if you're doing it correctly? Here is a link with a video that will let you see the whole process from start to completion. Encounter problems? Just email Katelyn Wazny or Harlene Hansen in the reference department the nature of your access problem, and we'll try and get it resolved for you.
Related to database access, the library will be doing some upgrades to our systems internally on March 5, so be prepared for possibly spotty access to library resources that day. Thanks everyone, good luck on your upcoming midterms and have an awesome spring break!
