Does our front page look weird to you?

It's come to our attention that the front page of the Leddy Library website doesn't always look right for those using Internet Explorer. 

We think we have isolated the problem. Ironically, it appears that selecting the Compatibility View from Internet Explorer's Tools menu, causes our page to break. 

Compatibility View is an option in that displays websites as if you were using an earlier version of Internet Explorer.  As this is not necessary for our website, we suggest that you turn off or deselect this option

Google Scholar matches your research profile to related research

Interesting. If you have a profile on Google Scholar, the service will match your past research record with new research. Essentially, it's a recommended reading service.

You can't add your research into a your citation profile if a GoogleBot can't find your work under your name (which is a little problematic because I changed my name some years ago and the work I've done under it doesn't exist in my current profile).
