Encyclopedia Britannica Down

We are currently experiencing access problems with the online version of Encyclopedia Britannica. The vendor has been notified and is working on correcting the issue for us. If you are an on-ground student and need to use the encyclopedia, we have a print version of this resource located in the Reference collection on the 2nd floor of the Library (call # REF 032 N532 2003). Online students should search their topic by using either Gale Virtual Reference Library or Oxford Reference Online. These resources can be found at > Click Research Databases > Choose Reference Resources from the Select a Subject Area drop down list > Choose Gale Virtual Reference Library or Oxford Reference Online.

We apologize for this inconvenience and will let you know as soon as everything is back up and working properly.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at
