The February 2013 database update has been applied to the Cambridge Structural Database System (CCDC). For more information about the system, see ccdc.caltech.edu.
Caltech faculty, staff, and students are reminded that the CSDS is also available for download and installation on individual Windows, MacOS, or Linux workstations from software.caltech.edu. The 2013 edition is now available from that site.
Introduction to CaltechTHESIS for Staff
Do you work with graduate students who are working on their thesis? Did you know that electronic copies of theses must be submitted to CaltechTHESIS as part of the PhD graduation requirement? How often do you get questions about formatting, printing, or binding theses? Do you maintain web pages that include information about theses? This class is geared toward option coordinators or other Caltech staff who work with graduate students or their theses, but is open to anyone interested on campus. We will give you an overview of the CaltechTHESIS database (http://thesis.library.caltech.edu), brief you on the steps the students need to take to deposit their thesis, and touch on intellectual property considerations and access. We will also give you tips on using the information in the database to populate your web page more effectively.

This month’s book list includes book cover images for many items, and links to Amazon to allow you to browse the books electronically. Please note that we provide no guarantee that Amazon has contracted with the publisher to allow viewers to browse specific books.
Access is now restored to JSTOR content. Thank you for your patience.
SFX / Caltech Connect is up and running again. Thank you for your patience.
SFX is currently down this morning. During this time links (Caltech Connect buttons) in Web of Science, Google Scholar ++ will not be available. We will do our best to complete the necessary maintenance in SFX as quickly as possible. If you have questions, please call x3404 or e-mail email@example.com.
We are currently experiencing problems accessing JSTOR content. Library staff are in touch with the publisher and we hope that our access problems are resolved soon. Science is one of the many affected titles, as pre-1997 content is licensed via JSTOR.
