Sometimes an off-campus student clicks on a library database and receives an error message.
Don’t panic! This is a known issue with a simple workaround.
Some students are not authenticated for the databases on our network, even though they are correctly and currently enrolled. BUT if a student logs in to the main Virginia Community College Portal one time, they will be recognized and will be able to login to MyReynolds as usual, and every time afterwards.
So…here’s the fix.
While off campus, navigate to the main portal for Virginia’s Community Colleges.
Kanopy provides access to one of the most unique collections of films in the world – including award-winning documentaries, training films and theatrical releases – on every topic imaginable. They also have a significant number of art-house and indie films. Total, there are over 26,000 films available.
Kanopy has a user friendly interface that makes browsing and searching for films a breeze — plus Kanopy is compatible with all major browsers.
Like most of our digital databases, Kanopy is available for access both on and off-campus. Just remember that for off campus access, you will be prompted for your VCCS/MyReynolds login credentials. But once you’re in, you can stream any video you wish!
Alright, cadets, listen up! At this very moment, the library is looking for a group of adventurous students to take part in a brand new focus group about technology on campus and in the library.
Who are we looking for?
First, you have to be a Reynolds student. Secondly, you have to have something to say about technology. Whether you love it or hate it, technology is a part of our world and we use it every day. It makes our lives both more simple, and more frustratingly complicated. And for you, the student, this means that, like it or not, you have to use technology for most ofall of your research and classes. So help us help you navigate this complicated world of gadgets and gizmos by telling us what you need. We need your voices, your opinions, your ideas, to shape the future of technology at Reynolds.
(If that didn’t convince you to take part in the group, did I mention there are prizes involved? And yummy treats too!)
We’ll be hosting two sessions next week and you can find the info below:
Through the process of finding the original source, he often discovers that the photographs are actually paintings, drawings or Photoshop mashups.
Librarian Jessamyn West explains about how @PicPedant’s work matters in her blog post “Why sourcing photos matters – how misattribution is amplified on the web.”
…as more and more people just presume the search engine and the “hive mind” approach to this sort of thing results in the correct answer, it’s good to have handy counterexamples to explain why we still need human eyeballs even as “everything” is on the web.
