Why HTTPS matters

Some time ago, our catalog was switched over to HTTPS. Why bother to do that? Because it's very, very easy to steal log-ins now. So easy that even a luddite could do it, now that the Firefox add-on "Firesheep" makes it that simple.

Off-campus log-ins, home page image....

Last week I deployed the special links for Medline w/ Full Text and Comm. & Mass Media Comp. to all places they appear on the site (that I know of). It appears to be working so far.

Today I removed the robot from the home page. I can put it back if anyone wanted it there.

I am also working on getting a new off-campus login page for both proxy servers we use, to reduce confusion about using them. I will soon send another email about this to ULMLWPC members.

I fixed the hours on on Fri. to show the break closing, and today I changed it back to normal.

I also suggested that we change the off-campus log-in pages to include directions to help users, and if possible, eliminate the term "PIN" as to not confuse anyone anymore.

As for the BBW robot... I'll remove it later. The display is still up, after all.
