Last week, several listeners reported buffering problems with Alexander Street Press videos. Our vendor believes the problem has been fixed. Some users have reported they can now view their title with no problem.
If you encounter a problem, please do the following: Press the “Esc” key 3 times rapidly and a diagnostic report will pop up, then click on “Refresh session – OK” and wait for a few seconds for the page to refresh and the video to reload. If the problem continues, please email a screen shot of the diagnostic report to firstname.lastname@example.org so librarians can continue to investigate.
We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused students and faculty.
College and university libraries provide a service not found in other types of libraries – Course Reserve. Many resources can be legally accessed from within Blackboard, but not everything can be placed online. When that occurs, your professor uses the LLC’s Course Reserve service.
Students may search [RaiderSearch Catalog] to see what is on Course Reserve by [Course Number] or [Instructor’s Name]. Kevin Lyons, Course Reserve Supervisor, says most reserve items are for use in-the-library-only, so they are readily available to all students. Lyons reports that “Students really appreciate having textbooks, especially, on Course Reserve.”
Several academic departments, including Criminal Justice, English, and Business, have been diligent on placing at least one copy of each textbook onto Course Reserve.
A limited Course Reserve selection is also available at the Lakeshore’s Midtown Campus.
