IC Library News: ARGOS interface update expected May 13th

This summer, the Library will be migrating to a more advanced and modern system allowing us to manage our resources much more effectively and provide better service to the Ithaca College community. The migration brings about a few changes in the ways we serve content in Argos, our library search engine.

On May 13, 2017, Argos will be updated with a new look-and-feel. It is the same content, just a different way of searching and displaying our holdings. We currently have the beta version running on our site, if you would like to check it out ( ). Feedback is welcome!

We’ll be creating some help guides so patrons can get comfortable with the new display. Look for these soon!

Another change happening on May 13th, is that access to the legacy catalog search (our search interface before Argos) will no longer be available. Since we are moving to a new system, the current system that powers this search will no longer be available. Due to this, links to items in our catalog will also be affected. If you have linked to any of our current Argos or legacy catalog items directly, the links will cease to function at the end of August. You will need to relink to those items after August 29 when their new URLs become available in Argos. Any items that are saved using the My Shelf feature will not be carried over after August 29. We will provide instructions for exporting your saved items before the end of the semester. My own research guides, which contain numerous links to books, will be affected by this change as well.  I’ll do my best to update them as soon as I can.  Please alert me to any broken links in Fall of 2017.

If you have any questions as to the clarity of this change, please contact me.




Democracy Now! The election of the next president is not yet a done deal

“The election of the next president is not yet a done deal. Electors of conscience can still do the right thing for the good of the country. Presidential electors have the legal right and a constitutional duty to vote their conscience.”


Public screenings of @13THFilm are allowed by Netflix in a first-of-its-kind general waiver ever made by the company
