Upddate - Digital Collections Access

Since the hack of the University’s systems and subsequent shutdown of our local servers in November of last year, library staff have been working to restore access to our digital collections (yearbooks, StFX publications, theses, etc.) as quickly as possible.  We would like to advise the campus community and patrons that the migration of these collections to a more secure and stable host continues. 

Digital Collections Temporarily Unavailable

Please be advised that we are migrating our Digital Collections to a new platform over the next few weeks and access to these collections will be limited. If you have an urgent need for items from any of these collections, please contact Margaret Vail (mvail@stfx.ca) for assistance. We regret any inconvenience this may cause and ask for your continued patience as we update our systems to provide a more stable user experience.

Off-Campus Google Scholar Access

Please be advised that Google Scholar is not working for off-campus users when accessed via the the Angus L. MacDonald Library website.  Off-campus users will not see the “Check for full text @ X” link, however, those affected can still use Google Scholar by logging into your personal google account and setting St. Francis Xavier University as your library.
