"Connection is not secure" warning

Many users of the Firefox browser have recently noticed a security warning when trying to log into the NHU-PAC ILL program.

Nothing has changed with the ILL program; it's Firefox that's changed.  Starting with version 52, the browser displays the message "This connection is not secure. Logins entered here could be compromised." when your cursor is in a login box on a Web page that's not encrypted.  Other browsers may add this feature in the future.  The warning also appears when using the "searching" login to manage lists in the NHU-PAC.
What to do?  Just keep on using your NHU-PAC logins as you always have.  If you think your NHU-PAC logins have been compromised--more likely by a former employee who holds a grudge and is bent on messing with your ILL requests than by some random Internet pirate--NHAIS Services can assign a new password (but we'll need a request from the library director either on paper or in an e-mail).

There are no plans at this point to move the NHU-PAC to an https (encrypted) site.  We're working on moving toward the next generation of the NHU-PAC over the next year--funding for it is expected to be in the state’s capital budget this June.  The new system (whatever it ends up being) should address this.

ILL Contact Lists Updated

The contact lists, by town and by code, for NHAIS ILL participants were updated this morning. You will find them (in pdf format) on the NHAIS ILL Resources page.

These lists are generated from the records that NHAIS Services maintains on all NHAIS libraries. If your library's ILL contact information needs updating please send an email with the corrections (and your HSA code) to nhu-pac@dcr.nh.gov.
The correction will be made in our internal records right away and will be reflected in the pdf documents on the website next time we publish an update.

No NC Van Today (3/06/17)

The NC van route is on hold at the moment today (Monday, March 06, 2017).  The vehicle’s heater broke this morning and the driver is presently trying to get it into the garage for repairs.  I can presume the route will be cancelled for today, but will send out another message if I hear differently.

NHU-PAC ILL class online March 23

Another online class on NHU-PAC interlibrary loan will be offered the afternoon of Thursday, March 23.  See the "How to Register for Classes" section on the NHAIS Services training page for details and to sign up (via the registration site link) for this free class.

Registrants will be sent login information on the day before the class.  We're using GoToMeeting for this.  You can check out the GoToMeeting FAQ page (especially the Attending a Meeting, Webinar or Class section) ahead of time to get an idea of how it works and whether your equipment meets the minimum standards.  You don't need a microphone--a text chat option will be used for questions or comments from participants.  You should be able to hear the instructor's audio through speakers/headphones/earphones attached to your computer but there's a dial-in option (regular long distance phone charges apply) if needed for audio.

If you have questions about NHU-PAC training or using the online registration system, contact the NHAIS Help Desk via e-mail or phone 271-2141.
