New Library Website Goes Live Tues. Jan. 12


When the website goes live, here’s what you can expect:

  • The new website will have the same address as the current site: or
  • The old website will continue to be accessible for a period at a new   address: Not all of the content from the old site has been moved to the new site yet.
  • While the homepage address will be the same, most of the other pages will have new addresses, which will cause bookmarked pages to get a redirect message.
  • There is a Feedback link in the left column of every page for you to let us know about any issues, problems or suggestions on the new site.
  • We are also switching to a new proxy service to provide off-campus access to licensed databases. This change means that the database URLs you may have bookmarked will need to be updated. While initially the current URLs and the new URLs will both work, we will not be maintaining and updating the former proxy service with changes to database URLs, or additions or deletions of databases, so we encourage you to update any database URLs that you have bookmarked by going to the home page of the new site and bookmarking the new URLs from that site.

We will provide more information in CampusMemo after the site goes live. If you would like a library representative to attend your opening spring semester college faculty meeting or other college or department meetings to provide more information or a demonstration, or to answer questions faculty may have, or contact the library faculty liaison for your college, department or program.


New Expanded Streaming Media Service


The Library has subscribed to a new streaming media service Academic Video Online: Premium. It includes many of the titles previously available through Films on Demand and replaces that discontinued service with an expanded offering of over twice the number of titles. You can check for availability of media through the Library’s catalog or contact the appropriate subject selector. San Francisco State University faculty are also welcome to submit a Media Request Form for titles they would like to use in the classroom that are not available through the new service.
