Finals week is madness and we know you're looking for a place to study. Starting today we've opened up the Center for Digital Scholarship and room 320 on the 3rd floor of King. King Library is not the only place we offer.
There's also the BEST Library, which is open until 2am all week. The Music Library is a pretty quiet place and is open until 11pm all week as is the Art & Architecture Library (which has reservable study rooms).
Make the Miami University Libraries' your home for finals and GOOD LUCK!!

Our Double will be stationed on the second floor of King Library and will be operated by librarians Monday through Friday from 9am - Noon and 1pm - 4pm (1/23 1pm - 4pm only). We are experimenting with the Double as a remote reference and assistance tool. Stop by and say hello to Double.

OK, so it's not enough that the Govt. shutdown has apparently permanently frozen up the Census site (Tip - Census data is still available in the Simply Map database http://www.lib.muohio.edu/indexes/redirect/1146.)
Now the Local Market Audience Analyst module (which is under the green toolbar on the left hand side of the in the SRDS database) (http://www.lib.muohio.edu/indexes/redirect/1202) is also causing difficulties. While the other parts of the SRDS Database (in the green toolbar section) will work with any browser, the Local Market Audience Analyst (LMAA) module will ONLY work with Internet Explorer as the browser. NOW, it will NOT work with the latest version of IE (10) which of course everyone's machines automatically updated to when it became available.
The workaround involves using something called Compatibility mode in Internet Explorer. The trick is you need to already be on the Local Market Audience Analyst page in the SRDS database. Once you are there, then go up to the top toolbar in IE and click on the Tools link. Open that up and there should be a choice called Compatibility Mode. Check that box and the Local market Audience Analyst should work.
