Possible catalog service issues

We are in the process of upgrading the library’s catalog to support encrypted HTTPS connections, but until that process is complete, you may encounter this error message when searching or linking to the catalog, particularly on mobile devices or when directed to our home page from a search engine:

“You don’t have permission to access the requested directory. There is either no index document or the directory is read-protected…”

We hope to complete the catalog upgrade within a few days. In the meantime, clearing your browser’s cache/history and pasting this URL into its address bar (plain text, in a new window/tab) should provide direct access to the catalog on most devices:


If you do have trouble reaching our Library catalog from off campus, we have found that it’s sometimes helpful to use a different browser.  Microsoft Explorer can sometimes reach the site when Firefox or Chrome cannot.  You might try experimenting with this to see if it helps in the short term, while we address the underlying issues.

Sincere apologies for any service interruptions.
