The Sacred Heart University wireless computer network is being upgraded and a new university website launched shortly.  The information I received from IT said that the process would begin "the week of July 2", which may have included today.

If you password is more than 6 months old, it may have expired in the system.  You may wish to try resetting your password.  There is a link for this from the "MySHU" pages (upper right corner of main university pages).  To do that, you will need the last 7 digits of your Sacred Heart ID number (on your SHU card).

To access the library's subscription databases, you can try either of these methods a few times later in the day.  Since the library isn't open on Sundays during the summer, you'll need to wait until after 9 am on Monday to speak to a librarian in person or via telephone (203-371-7726) if problems persist.

In the interim, you may find some helpful articles and abstracts in the Connecticut Digital Library (  There are several databases available on that system that may help you get started.  I've attached a PowerPoint to show you how to access this tool.

Google Scholar ( is a great source, too, and sometimes provides links to full-text, though not always.

Save any promising citations or abstracts, and our librarians can help you get to the full-text version.
