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.
The University Libraries and School of Pharmacy have recently started testing a new way to print from your phone, tablet or other mobile device.
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.
More detailed information can be found at our LibGuide: Mobile Print

Mac’s latest OS has added additional security features that favors Apple App Store purchases. We encountered this previously when installing Pharos printers in Mountain Lion. To successfully install Endnote X5 and X6 in Mountain Lion, preform the following tasks before attempting to launch Endnote for the first time.
- Go to the Mac’s Systems Preferences, usually in the Dock at the bottom of the screen (gears icon).
- Click on “Security & Privacy”
- Click on the “Lock” icon to make changes, authenticate with your computer login password.
- Change the preference “Allow applications downloaded from:” to “Anywhere”.
- Click the warning box stating that choosing “Anywhere” can make your Mac less secure. You can go back and change the setting after Endnote installs.
- Now you can click the Endnote_X# installer, drag the installer to the Apps folder and click on the Endnote X# icon to install and launch Endnote X# for the first time.
Apple’s latest Operating System Mountain Lion creates some difficulties when installing the Libraries’ printer package. The problem is that Mountain Lion’s default configuration is to only allow applications to be installed from the Apple App store or verified providers. Here is what you have to do to install the package:
1) Download the Mac printer package from http://fishersisland.llu.edu/.
2) When you click on the Popup.pkg file, Mountain Lion displays this popup:
3) Click on System Preferences. Click on Security & Privacy. Temporarily set your application download preferences to “Anywhere”
4) Click on Popup.pkg again to complete the install. You can reset your application download preferences back to from “Apple App Store and identified developers” if you wish.
5) You might need to download some updated print drivers for Mountain Lion the first time you print. If this is the case, your printer icon will have a warning symbol. Click on it and follow the prompts to update the driver:
6) Continue your first print job by clicking on the restart icon.
