Censoring Freedom to Read Week?

Published by Dipa Barua

Q: This link (and others) were published to a "Freedom to Read Week" listing. Unfortunately none of the SFU pages are actually readable and are inaccessible to the public. Ironic?

A: Never fear -- we aren't censoring our Freedom to Read Week information. Last week we added a link from the Library home page to a new and updated page that includes more online-friendly features. (You can also go directly to our FtRW information here.

Access to Bilingual Research Journal

Published by Dipa Barua

Q: I can't get access to the following journal article online: Lee, Jin Sook, & Oxelson, Eva. (2006). "It's Not My Job": K-12 Teacher Attitudes Toward Students' Heritage Language Maintenance. Bilingual Research Journal, 30(2), 453–477.

The error message that I'm getting from Google Chrome is that "www-tandfonline-com.proxy.lib.sfu.ca redirected you too many times." I cleared the cookies but it didn't make a difference.

Inter-library loan for The Papers of Chief John Ross

Published by Dipa Barua

Q: I am working on a research project and am in need of a book for references. It looks like your library had the book in ebook form which would make the reference search easier by using keyword searches. I was wondering if it was possible to obtain the ebook via inter-library loan?

The books are: The Papers of Chief John Ross, vol. 1 and The Papers of Chief John Ross, vol. 2.

Access to an H.P. Lovecraft book

Published by Dipa Barua

Q: There is a difference between a book I found on the SFU Library website and the link it sends me to when I try to access it. The ISBN number is 978-0812974416. The two websites do not show the same book. Could you advise?

A: Thanks for bringing this incorrect edition's catalogue record to our attention. We will work with our catalogue vendor to remove this content.
