From Kevin Smith’s latest post over at his blog, “Scholarly Communications @ Duke”:
I wanted to be done with the American Historical Association and their muddle-headed statement about embargoing theses and dissertations for up to six years from open access in order to protect publishing opportunities. I had hoped that the statement would receive the scorn that it deserves and we could all move on to discussing more serious matters. And it has received a good deal of that well-deserved incredulity and disparagement, but there is still a bit of a debate going on — evidenced by this story in the New York Times — so I want to make a couple of additional points.

An elaborate scam pop-up claiming to be from legitimate government agencies has startled at least two members of the Marygrove Community. In both cases the virus was recognized, reported, and promptly removed by our technical support at Caretech. In the unlikely event that you encounter this phishing scheme please contact Marygrove technical support at (313) 927-1282.
DO NOT provide any financial information to this website.
Other known cases of the phishing attempt have occurred in Monroe County. http://monroe.patch.com/groups/business-news/p/fbi-virus-infects-monroe-residents-computers
To help Detroiters make informed decisions when they vote in the August 6th primary election, a free, non-partisan, online voter guide is available at:
At this website you can read responses to questions posed to all of the candidates for mayor, city council, city clerk and the board of police commissioners. You can find your city council district and your polling place, check voting hours and read tips about voting in Michigan. You can access printer-friendly guides here: http://www.lwvmi.org/
This website is made possible by the League of Women Voters (LWV), a non-partisan political organization. Here’s more about the LWV:
The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan political organization that has worked since the early years of the last century to encourage informed and active participation in government. The organization works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influence public policy through education and advocacy. The League never supports or opposes candidates or political parties.
[Access to the catalog was restored by 10 am Thursday, July 4. Thanks for your patience!]
Horizon will be performing maintenance on the Marygrove Library catalog on Wednesday, July 3, beginning at 10 a.m. As a result, the catalog will be unavailable for a short period of time. In the meantime, we suggest that you use WorldCat. WorldCat is a database that searches libraries worldwide all at once; it will show you what’s available in the Marygrove Library but can’t provide call numbers.
Here’s how to use WorldCat:
- Visit WorldCat by clicking here: http://library.marygrove.edu:2048/login?url=http://firstsearch.oclc.org/framedlinks=false;dbname=WorldCat;FSIP;onesession=no. [If you are off-campus, you'll need to type your Marygrove username and password. Note that WorldCat is also accessible from the Books & Media menu at the Marygrove Library website.]
- Type your search terms.
- Before you click the search button, look further down the page for the words “Library Code.” Type ERR in the box next to these words. This is a code specific to the Marygrove Library which will prevent other libraries’ materials from appearing in your search results.
- Click the search button. Your results will appear.
If you need help with this, don’t hesitate to give us a call! 313.927.1346
The library will be closed this Thursday for the July 4th holiday. Have fun and be safe!
