Problem with fast search feature

Published by Dipa Barua

Q: Hi,

Yesterday from approximately 7pm to 10:30pm, the fast search was not working. It would end up showing the page source of coding instead. I confirmed this with a friend and tried to access fast search on different browsers and devices yet they all had the same outcome. Just thought I would let you know!

A: Hello,

I'm sorry you had problems with Fast Search yesterday. It seems to be working today, June 19.

Please let me know if you continue to have problems.

Questions on Equipment Lending Policies

Published by Dipa Barua

Q: Hi, I am a college student inquiring about the lending system of media
equipment (laptops, projectors, speakers etc.) at SFU Libraries. I am
currently working on a project to implement a similar system at my college's  library and would like to ask about the structure and policies on lending  media equipment works and if there is a general model that my college's library can follow.
