We have received several reports of problems accessing MathSciNet. The library has reported the problem, and we are working on resolving the issue, but we do not have an estimate of when access will be restored. In the meantime, library users may want to search Zentralblatt MATH as an alternative.
Update (4/14): As of this morning, access has been restored. Please contact Brian Quigley if you continue to have access problems.

The Nano Song - a collaborative effort by a group of UC Berkeley students and researchers including Patrick Bennett, David Carlton, Molly Felz, Nola Klemfuss, Glory Liu, Ryan Miyakawa, Stacey Wallace, and Angelica Zen - was the recent winner of the "What is Nano?" Video Contest sponsored by the American Chemical Society (ACS).
The contest sought creative videos that conveyed the scientific and cultural significance of nanoscience to a broad audience, and the Cal team's video delivered. The video, featuring a puppet-oriented educational song, won both the Critics' Choice and People's Choice awards.
Congratulations to the award-winning team!
