Kanopy Changes

Submitted by Kristin on Thu, 05/09/2019

Beginning Monday, May 13, most Kanopy streaming videos will need to be requested before viewing.

Previously, UGA users were able to view many films on the Kanopy site simply by opening them. After a film received a small number of views – no matter how brief – the UGA Libraries had to pay a substantial annual license fee for that film. As use has increased, our costs have risen sharply to the point that we can no longer afford to offer unmediated access.  While moving to request-based (mediated) access may not be as convenient, we are making this change to enable us to continue to provide access to Kanopy films but in a more sustainable way.

Submitted by Deborah on Tue, 03/05/2019

The University of Georgia will conduct network maintenance on Saturday, March 9 beginning at 8:00 a.m. This means that both campus internet and campus information systems will be down, possibly all day.

For the Libraries, this means that you will not be able to login to our computers, and our systems (e.g., websites and other resources) will be inaccessible. You will still be able to check out books.

Special Collections will also be affected. The outage will impact their ability to provide access to materials. If you would like to view materials on Saturday, please contact Special Collections at sclib@uga.edu or 706-542-7123 by 12pm on Friday, March 8th.

GIL and GALILEO will only be accessible if you are using a *non-UGA internet service provider* at the following URLs:

Frankenread Fun for Halloween!

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, the UGA Libraries are joining forces with the English Department to offer a host of Frankenstein related activities in the month of October. The Frankenreads events are part of an international celebration organized by the Keats-Shelley Association of America.

On Halloween, Wednesday October 31st our Frankenread will begin in UGA’s Main Library at 8am and continue until 6pm. In the spirit of the novel’s multiple voices, readers will be drawn from across the campus and the larger Athens community. The Frankenread will be accompanied by a slideshow of images drawn from popular culture and curated by Dr. Christopher Pizzino (UGA English).
