Remote Access Restored and System Dashboard for Troubleshooting Launched


Remote access to the library’s EBSCOHost databases and ebook collections was restored as of 10:22 pm last night (09/22/20) 😊.

I’m also happy to share exciting changes we’ve made to improve your library experiences.

  1. With Much Love library portal has a new Dashboard tab you can check when you have access issues. Status of systems from our vendor-providers is here.
  2. All ebook collections have an attractive splash page of Highlights with cover pages, Browse by category (e.g. Religion), and featured eBooks.
  3. When using the Ebscohost interface, Choose Databases will no longer default to Academic Database and the library’s most useful/used scholarly databases and ebooks are now arranged alphabetically by title (e.g. Academic Search Complete, African American Historical Serials Collection, APA PsychInfo, ATLA religion, etc.).  

I am very grateful, especially you who emailed me news of other systems down elsewhere in Louisville. I appreciate you. We continue to streamline our databases, systems, and services to help learning and empower successful library experiences. Stay connected and thank you!
