Many times this is a case of cookies blocking access to resources. Try clearing your computer's cache/browsing history:

  • PC (Windows): On your keyboard his CTRL+SHIFT+DELETE. This will bring up a box to clear the cache, cookies, etc.
  • Mac: On your keyboard his CMD+SHIFT+DELETE. This will bring up a box to clear the cache, cookies, etc.

If this does not work, contact the library's Access Services department at (989) 774-3114.
