Database connection issues
With the network issues the Edgewood campus has been experiencing, connections to article databases has been slower than usual.  Unfortunately this slowness can be amplified for off-campus users (their browser requests must go from their computer, to Edgewood, to the databases, back to Edgewood, and finally to their computer).

The ITSO team at Edgewood is working to resolve all of the network issues as soon as possible.

In the meantime, if you're unable to access a needed article, or would like some assistance, use the Ask a Librarian links on the library home page to contact us and we will do what we can to help.
