OskiCat "saved lists" problem recurs

The problem with saved lists in OskiCat, thought to have been resolved, is occurring again as of Tuesday Feb. 1.

Users have reported that their saved lists, normally accessed by logging into "My OskiCat," are no longer available.  Attempts to view these lists get an error message: "An internal error has occurred."

Update: As of Friday Feb. 4, this issue has been resolved.  Saved lists should once again be visible.  If yours are not, please let us know.

For more information on the list feature, see Managing Search Results.

Students' photos of the Cal libraries

What happens when you ask over 100 students to take photos of the Cal libraries?

» Have a look!

Library staff have been working with the Letters and Sciences 1 class since its inception in 2002. This course is an introduction to the Liberal Arts designed for entering students. In Fall of 2010, to help these students get familiar with the campus libraries, we asked them to go to a library and take a photo of something that interested them.  We think the results are impressive!
