Can’t access articles in Advances in Archaeological Practice

December 2nd, 2014

Q: I’m trying to access articles in Advances in Archaeological Practice, to which SFU is an institutional subscriber.
The sign-in page is not accepting my name/sfu password.
Am I not doing something correct?

A: I’m sorry to report that SFU Library does not have a subscription to Advances in Archaeological Practice from the Society for American Archaeology.

http://saa.publisher.ingentaconnect.com/content/saa/aap

Please use our document delivery/interlibrary loan service to obtain a copy of the article you need.

http://godot.lib.sfu.ca:7888/godot/blank.cgi?hold_tab_dt=JOURNAL

You are seeing SFU identified in the top right hand corner of the page because the provider’s website (Ingenta Connect) recognizes SFU IP ranges and we have numerous other journal subscriptions available on that platform, but unfortunately not the one you’re looking for.

http://cufts2.lib.sfu.ca/CJDB4/BVAS/browse/bylink/association/8285

If you would like to recommend this journal for library acquisition, please notify your liaison librarian about your interest. I have copied her on this reply so she is aware of this correspondence.

Thanks very much. Sandra.

Q: Why is it so hot on the 2nd floor of the library?? I am here late right now (Nov.25 1:35 am) and I’m cooking in my seat with a T-shirt on and with both the windows open right next to me.
Can we please turn the heat down?

I’ve submitted a request to our HVAC department to investigate and remedy the over heating problem on the 2nd floor.

Q: Sorry to bug you! I realize the library has it as an e-book. Is there any way to get a print copy of it? I couldn’t read an entire book on my computer!

A: Thanks for the request. Unfortunately, our Psychology book budget does not usually permit us to purchase alternative formats for books at the moment. However, you should be able to obtain a reader-friendly *print* version of this book using interlibrary loan. In fact, you can request any e-book you wish to read in print via interlibrary loan. The request form can be found here: http://www.lib.sfu.ca/find/document-delivery/request-form
Hope that helps!

Best wishes,
