We apologize for the inconvenience, but Encore needs to go through some unscheduled maintenance. If you are unfamiliar with Encore, it’s a discovery platform and better way to search the catalog. It will be unavailable this afternoon, but you can still search for books, journals, and other materials through the traditional catalog.
Did you know that the UH Libraries is on Facebook? Follow the news of the UH Libraries and interact with other fans and librarians. Ask questions, share pictures, learn about events, and have fun.
On Tuesday, August 25th from 6:30-7pm, the federated search tools will be down due to scheduled web server maintenance. You will not be able to use any of the federated search tools on the UH Libraries’ website. This includes doing a search on the homepage for articles. You can still go into individual databases to look for articles. We apologize for this inconvenience.
If you have any questions, please contact Rachel Vacek, Web Services Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
Students need their:
- PeopleSoft ID
- 60XXX number off the back of their NEW card.
Have you worked closely with any of the librarians here within the UH Libraries? Have they helped you or gone out of their way for you? If you want to say thanks to that special person, now if your opportunity!
