Planned Service Interruptions

Friday March 1, from 4:00pm CT: The ACLS Humanities E-book and University of Michigan Ebooks collections (on the Fulcrum platform) will be offline for maintenance and inaccessible for approximately 3 hours. 

Known Issues

Ongoing: Users may see links to various online resources returning a blank page, or various HTTP errors. These issues are typically due to interference from cookies and other files cached in the user’s browser, and can often be resolved by clearing the browser’s history, or using a different browser, and then retrying the link. Clearing only the cookies specifically for the website affected may also be an effective solution. See the Libraries FAQ on this subject. 

Platform Updates

5 December 2023: The curated data collection, Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) is now available in the PolicyMap tool. The collection includes indicators for Life Expectancy and Mortality, Health and Healthcare Landscape, Infrastructure and Built Environment, Community and Social Context, Food and Nutrition, Education, Healthy Assets and Opportunities, Financial Stability, and Environmental Hazards. Wherever possible, the data is disaggregated by race, ethnicity, and age. To access SDOH, click Curated Collections at the top right of the PolicyMap page.
