Service Alert - Access Restored

The CIIS Library just endured some major service outages over the last couple of weeks, due to higher-level technical maintenance and infrastructural improvement projects. Systems have been restored, and most resources should be available again.

Please let us know if there is a resource that you have used in the past that you are unable to access, or if something listed as available on our site or in our systems is currently inaccessible, by sending an e-mail to syslib at ciis dot edu, or by calling (415) 575-6180 to report the outage.

We apologize for any impact that the service disruption may have had, and we will continue to work diligently toward complete resoration and to prevent such outages in the future.


CIIS Library Guide to E-books

The CIIS LIbrary will be rolling out new research and resource guides. They will be available to assist in areas such as:

  • How to use library and scholarly resources like RefWorks, e-books and more!
  • Subject-specific guides that will point to helpful books, journals and other resources on a topic or in a field of study
  • Course-specific guides that direct you to required readings and other suggested resources
  • ...and more!
Here is our first guide: E-Books @ the CIIS Library.
