Follow Library News & Events

Stay informed! Check the Library homepage or set up an RSS feed.

Now that the new library webpages are live, the News and Events feature on the Library homepage will replace this Dupré Library News Blog. Go to library.louisiana.edu to view News and Events on the Library homepage.

RSS feed iconYou can also set up a folder for RSS feeds in your UL Lafayette Zimbra account, and then all you’ll have to do is click on that folder to see the latest Dupré Library News and Events posts.

 

 

Here’s what you do.

  1. Log into Zimbra at https://webmail.zimbra.louisiana.edu/.
  2. In the Overview pane, right click on the Folders header (located near the top on the left side of the page) and choose New Folder.
  3. A small window will pop up.
  4. In the Name field, type the name you want to call this RSS feed folder. It’s your choice, but Dupre News or Library News will work.
  5. Check the box that precedes Subscribe to RSS/ATOM feed.
  6. In the URL field, enter this: http://library.louisiana.edu/news.xml.
  7. Click OK.

On your Zimbra Overview pane, under Inbox, you should see the RSS feed icon and the name you typed in the Name field. You may move the folder wherever you choose. To confirm that the RSS feed is working properly, right click on your RSS feed folder (icon & name), select Load Feed, and left click on the folder to view the posts.

Once the folder is set up, you can click on it to display updated News and Events posts. Check this folder periodically, since the contents do not directly feed to the Inbox.

Access to E-Journals Restored for Most Titles

Major issues with access to e-journals have been addressed, and most periodicals are now available both on and off campus. Librarians are working on the remaining titles.

Please contact the Reference Desk if you need immediate access to a periodical that currently has a broken link.

Library hours: http://library.louisiana.edu/Circ/hours.shtml

Access to E-Journals Currently Limited

Access to e-journals, both on and off campus, is currently very limited. The databases are not affected.

If you have a citation, determine if full text of the journal/periodical is available in a database using the A to Z tool. An A to Z link is posted on the Reference Online Center webpage, http://library.louisiana.edu/Ref/Databases/. The library catalog will give you similar information.

If full text of the journal/periodical is available in a database, go directly to that database from the Reference Online Center webpage and use the Publications tab provided at the top of many databases. In JSTOR, use the Browse tab and click on “by Title.”

If you need help while the library is open, Ask a Librarian.
