We've Been Hacked!

UPDATE: The website is back up ready to meet your research needs!

The Darling Library's website ( has been hacked! The HIU Information Systems Department pulled the entire library server offline to contain the damage and protect the rest of the Hope International University online environment from being affected.

This means that any online library resource that normally requires your email address is unavailable.

Resources that are unavailable:

  • Research Databases such as ProQuest, EBSCOhost (journal articles)
  • eBooks
  • Library web pages
Right now the library's web pages show the following message saying we are undergoing scheduled downtime for maintenance.

The following resources are unaffected and are currently online:

The library is open for study, use of the Information Commons computers, and checking out books.

Darling Library Intersession Hours
Monday - Thursday: 12:00PM to 6:00PM
Friday: 12:00PM to 5:00PM
Saturday - Sunday: Closed

Contact the library if you have any questions:
Front Desk: (714) 879-3901, ext. 1234

We will post updates when resources become available.
