Wikipedia Blackout

At midnight on Wednesday, January 18th 2012, Wikipedia is participating in a blackout to protest the Stop Online Piracy Act. What does this mean for users of Wikipedia? You'll see a message explaining Wikipedia's opposition to the Stop Online Piracy Act bill and Wikipedia will go dark all day, meaning if you rely on that website for information it will be unavailable tomorrow.

But never fear, as always the library is still the first and most trusted place to turn for reliable and scholarly information. Start your research by using one of the academic databases on the library's homepage, or come to the library for the one-on-one service we have always provided.
