Ancestry.com Access Library Edition

Get it while it last because I'm sure they are going to plug it up when they figure it out:
1. Go to http://wpl.lib.ri.us/
2. Click Databases/Web Sites
3. Click Genealogy
4. Click Ancestry.Library Edition (in Library)
5. Start searching....

This news came from one of my English lists.

  2. As of today (9/19), they plugged up the hole.

    I wonder how often libraries leave something open accidently?

  3. For shame!!!

    Postings like this is why Ancestry.com was removed from @home access from the libraries to start with.

    For shame!!!

  5. Libraries are well aware of the security requirements for their sites. If they leave a gapping hole in their security and people discover it, they are going to use it. To be honest, I thought this was amusing more than anything else. And indeed the hole was plugged up in less than 24 hours. So my response is, "Lighten up."
