Important Note About Browser Support and the New Online Library in CoursePlus

October 24, 2011 | 1 Minute Read

By the end of the month, the new Online Library tool will be available in CoursePlus. It is very important to note that the new Online Library tool will not work in Internet Explorer 7. We know that there are some faculty and staff who still use Internet Explorer 7 to access CoursePlus. However, the Center stopped supporting Internet Explorer 7 for online courses and CoursePlus in June, 2011. For a recap of the reasons why support for IE7 was ended, please see this blog post.

While it's quite possible that some of the functionality in the new Online Library will work in Internet Explorer 7, we know that not everything does work in that browser. We have tested the Online Library against a number of modern Web browsers, and found no problems. Tested and supported browsers include:

All of these browsers are free and download quickly. If you do not wish to upgrade Internet Explorer out of concerns about what it may do to your computer, you can use Firefox or Chrome. These web browsers do not interfere with your operating system in the same ways that Internet Explorer does. (As a matter of fact, the Center strongly recommends the use of Firefox or Chrome instead of Internet Explorer.)

If you have questions or concerns about this, please feel free to contact the CTLT Help team for assistance.
