Please consider helping those who are in need this holiday season! Dacus Library is one of the drop-off locations for the Project Hope Food Drive. We have two boxes located one each side of the Information Commons desk where you can drop-off any non-perishable food (cans or boxes) now until December 18th. Thank you!
Due to the Thanksgiving Holiday break, Dacus Library’s hours will vary from the normal schedule starting on Tuesday, November 24th, when we will close at 8:00 PM. On Wednesday, November 25th, we will be open from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM and then be closed Thursday – Saturday. The library will reopen on Sunday, November 29th, at 5:00 PM and 24 hour access will resume at that time.
For those that are trying to access databases and ebooks from off-campus, you’ll notice that you get prompted for a username and password. If you’re confused as to why your old credentials aren’t working (last name and Winthrop ID), it’s because this past July we switched to a different computerized library system. The username you have to use now is your Winthrop email username and the password is your library account password, that you have to create for the first time.
If you have not created a library account password since July of 2015, or you did but you’ve forgotten what it is, please use the following guide: Library Account Setup and Access Instructions. It provides detailed instructions and screenshots to aid you in setting up this information.
If you’ve done all this and you still cannot access the library’s resources remotely, please call the reference desk at 803/323-4501.
