OSLIS Access Issues

I am sorry to have to report that OSLIS is intermittently down again.

Despite OSLIS' "up" time last week, we've still been working with an outside company to identify potential issues.  They have an update scheduled for this afternoon.

If you need to use OSLIS, try it.  If you encounter any problems, it would be helpful if you sent me some details:  wording of any error messages, and/or screenshots that show any problems you are having, along with the time when the problem occurred.

For the back door to Citation Maker, please use the links below.  Remember that even though Citation Maker is up to date on the old site, the information literacy resources and links to the subscriptions databases are not current.
     MLA Elementary:
     MLA Secondary:

For back door access to the Gale databases, go to the support page Gale created for Oregon libraries when they became our vendor.
     Click on the OSLIS logo found in the lower left corner.
     If your school's or district's IP addresses are on file with Gale, you should get instant access to the menu of database choices.
     Otherwise, you will get the usual login screen that prompts you for your user name and password.

Please share this information with others you know or suspect are not on the OASL or OSLIST listservs.
