The first floor of the Del E. Webb Memorial Library is closed due to renovations currently taking place. The closure is slated to continue for the remainder of the year. The fourth and third floors can be used for studying as well as limited space in the stacks. Thank you for your understanding as we proceed with the renovations that will include a new student study space.
ScienceDirect, features full-text access to major science, technology and medicine journals and books. On January 1, 2016, ScienceDirect will no longer support access to these resources from Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 8 browser. Modern browser versions such as Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox are fully supported by ScienceDirect.
It is the library’s understanding that the medical center maybe using the outdated Internet Explorer 8 browser. It is recommended that those affected contact the medical center information services help desk (x48889) to request an update to Internet Explorer or the install of a supported browser to continue to access ScienceDirect after January 1, 2016. You might also be aware that PubMed dropped support of Internet Explorer 8 as of January 1, 2013. Many features of PubMed do not display properly in Internet Explorer 8.
Internet Explorer 8 was initially released on March 19, 2009 and was the last IE version supported on Windows XP. Windows XP support ended April 8, 2014 which effectively ended IE 8. IE 8 support officially ends January 12, 2016. The current Internet Explorer version is 11 and has many features that make it more secure.
You may have noticed that the student break room on the third floor of the library stacks building has been torn up and unavailable for some time. We started renovating it and then were delayed. Well, the renovation is back on track and nearing completion. When it’s finished it will have a sink, an instant hot water tap, vending machines, two microwave ovens, and tables for student use.
The basic information you need to know: You can email your print documents (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, txt, Visio) to email@example.com and release them from the University Libraries’ copiers/printer or if you are a Pharmacy student, from the SP labs.

Now it’s easier and faster to get the information you need on your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad or Android device. The new DynaMed app features a simpler way to authenticate your device and no longer requires you to contact the library for a serial number.
The new and improved mobile app provides:
Features that meet clinician’s needs:
Users download the complete DynaMed content set and periodically receive notifications to update the content.
The third floor renovation is nearly complete, only a few details to finish up on. So what’s next? The basement. Changes in the basement will be fairly major. The south half of the floor will house the IT help desk as well as the rest of the IT team that are now housed near the Randall Amphitheater. There will also be a suite of academic offices on the south west wall. The remaining north half of the floor will be designed for quiet individual study space. Work is ongoing on the plans with construction scheduled to begin in late spring.
