Q: I have a problem for half a year. Previously, I can directly search the title of a article and download it. However, half a year ago, I cannot do in this way any more. I have to type in www.lib.sfu.ca, log in my computing ID and then download. This is very inconvenient for not only me but also all my friends who wanna read publications. Could you please fix it?

Q: I have been getting error pages for the last several hours (current time 2:40pm Sunday, May 31, 2015) whenever I attempt to search the library database from the library home page. I can not seem to find a proper server status page that would update people on the status or estimated time of repair either (the one that comes up in a search of SFU sites is http://researcher.sfu.ca/servers, and this seems to be about 7 years out of date).
Find the Library resources you need.
I understand that our BUS 430 students (Cross-Cultural Management) are going to be looking for some secondary data sources to test various hypotheses. I thought I'd list a few of my favourite sources that might fit their needs.
In no particular order, my recommendations are...
Calling all instructors...
Have you ever been in the middle of planning a lecture when you suddenly wondered if showing that video (or copying that chapter... or making a slide from that artistic work) was allowed within copyright laws, policies, and guidelines?
Such quandaries tend to happen at the last minute -- often at midnight! Why not spend an hour now to save some worry later?
The Tri-Council Agencies (SSHRC, CIHR, and NSERC) recently implemented a policy that research funded by them must be made publicly available within 12 months of publication. This applies to research resulting from all grants awarded from May 1, 2015 onwards.
SFU Library offers a number of services and helpful web pages to help support your compliance with their policy:
The SFU Library is: Open for research. Open for learning. Open for collaboration.
I thought I'd resurrect this older post as it is still very relevant and useful. (MarkB)
For most searches in our databases, the basic syntax of (A and B) works fine. (E.g., (librarians and cool).) For some more complex topics, it's necessary to add in some synonyms: ((A or B) and (C or D)). (E.g., ((librarians or libraries) and (cool or awesome)).)
Q: I tried to access an article in the latest issue of American Antiquity by Lepofsky et al. [Lepofsky, D. et al. 2015. "Ancient shellfish mariculture on the Northwest Coast of North America." American Antiquity 80:236-59.], but when I went to the e-version of American Antiquity that the library provides access to, everything in the issue seemed to be available EXCEPT pp. 236-59 which simply seemed to be missing. Can you help clarify what is up and how I can get access to this article online?
Q: On the page http://cufts2.lib.sfu.ca/CJDB4/BVAS/browse/titles?t=exact&q=journal+of+combinatorics&browse_field=title is a link to "Journal of Combinatorics" But that link takes me to "The electronic journal of combinatorics."
I want to find the Journal of Combinatorics, 4 (2013, pp 81-93, the article is "some new additive and multiplicative Ramsey numbers" by N. Hindman and D. Phulara.
