We have great news! The “Check for Full Text” link is working, so you should have access to all of the wonderful articles that we subscribe to. When you use the “Check for Full Text” link for the first time after the outage, you may need to clear your cache and cookies. After that, it will be business as usual.

If you continue to have problems, please reach out to your Brandman librarians. We are here to help.

Your Brandman librarians are sad. Currently, there is a logon problem when Brandman students try to access the Leatherby Libraries. Please know that we are working to solve the problem. An email has been sent to all faculty teaching Summer II, so your instructors are aware of the issue, as well.

As soon as logon is restored, we will post it here as well as sending a Tweet through the Brandman Twitter feed. Please bear with us and let us know if there is anything we can do to help.

Library Connectivity Issues

We are so sad. Due to the power outage at the Chapman University campus this weekend, a piece of important hardware was damaged. This is affecting our Brandman students’ ability to access the databases. Please know that the replacement hardware has been ordered and that we are working on restoring your service as soon as possible. We’ll let you know when you can plug in to the library once again.

Until then, please feel free to contact your Brandman librarians, Lugene Rosen or Wenling Tseng, for some alternate ways of finding credible information. We’re here to help!
