Problems Accessing MRI Plus and new handouts

While the glories of having access to MRI Plus have been extolled, many students have not been able to gain access.

In order to safeguard access, the database vendor has required that we provide all variations of email address domain names for the current Baruch community of users. It was recently discovered that the vendor did not have a complete list of email address domain names for the current Baruch community. If students were once denied access to this database, they should now be able to access MRI Plus.

I am working with BCTC to ensure that the vendor is informed about all new Baruch email domain names added in the future.

Also, please be informed that I have placed a comparison chart of Simmons and MRI on E-reserves at the Newman Library homepage under generic course code: MKT 0000. This will give users a better idea about when they may want to elect to use one or both marketing databases. Hard copies of this handout may also found at the Reference Desk.

There is also an online tutorial created by Tennessee Libraries for Simmons Choices III located at http://www.lib.utk.edu/refs/business/simmons.html. You can also find hard copies of this tutorial at the Reference Desk.
