Yikes! EZproxy is having a problem this morning. Please be patient as we work this out.
This will affect access to MyiLibrary, EBL (eBook Library), ebrary Bookshelf and any resources requiring EZproxy. For off campus access, use myVPN for now.No Comments

Currently, on the EBSCO eBook platform you can download ebooks off-line. Unfortunately, as the majority are single-user ebooks, this means no one else can access the ebook for 7 days. In order to make accessing fairer to all, we will be temporarily suspending off-line downloading on the EBSCO eBook platform later this week.
This move also brings EBSCO ebooks more into line with ebrary ebooks: single-user ebrary ebooks cannot be downloaded off-line either (multi-user ebooks on ebrary can).
The ability to download, email or print .pdf pages or sections (in most cases up to 60 pages) on EBSCO eBooks platform should not be affected.2 Comments

The SAE Digital Library access is not working for the moment. We are talking to the vendor and hope to get this sorted soon.
Sorry for the inconvenience. Stay Tuned.No Comments
