Falvey West Stacks Reopen

After several days of being closed for cleaning & maintenance, we are reopening the Falvey West stacks to library patrons. Patrons with any concerns about the condition of library materials or the space in general are encouraged to notify library staff. (Below is the message we originally posted on August 20.)

“Due to the need for critical maintenance in the Falvey West stacks and the presence of heavy equipment, we cannot permit patron access to the stack area for the next 7-10 days. Staff at the front desk will do whatever they can to fulfill your need for specified titles. Staff can place holds on titles for library patrons or mark titles missing so that E-Z Borrow requests can be placed. Items requested through E-Z Borrow are often delivered within 3-5 days.

We greatly appreciate your patience during this brief service interruption. Please call the service desk at 610-519-4270 if you have any questions.”

Temporary Internet Service Provider Outage Affects Distance Library Users

There appears to be a network outage in the Philadelphia area on one of the routers utilized by the University’s internet service provider (ISP). UNIT is working with them to resolve the routing problem.

In the meantime, using the University’s Virtual Private Network (VPN) appears to be an acceptable short term work around  for faculty and staff. Here are instructions on how to install/use it.

Students who live outside of the Philadelphia area may contact us directly for research assistance at either 610-519-4270 or at ref@villanova.edu. Our online chat may also be available from the homepage. Look for the green “Ask a Librarian: Live Chat” button in the lower right hand corner of the screen.
