New URL for ILL service, ILLiad
If you're a regular user of interlibrary loan, you may have bookmarked the welcome page for ILLiad. Please note that the URL has changed due to a recent server upgrade. The correct logon page is http://illiad.oberlin.edu/illiad/logon.html. We are still finding some places that are referring to the old logon, and apologize if you're misdirected. Do let us know if you sent on a wild goose chase so we can correct the references. And watch for a much needed refresh of the ILLiad pages this summer, now that we have a new machine.

The inaugural Milt Hinton Institute for Studio Bass will feature a daylong festival on Thursday, June 12, called "Celebrating Milt Hinton.” A highlight of the day will be a guided tour of the Oberlin Conservatory Library's special collection of Hinton’s papers and photographs, which document a 70-year career during the golden age of American jazz. The tour, which begins at 2:30 pm in the Conservatory main lounge, will be led by Conservatory Special Collections Librarian Jeremy Smith. More details and a full schedule of festival events, which include a film screening, talks, and musical performances, are available online.
