Wiley Online Library (eBooks & eJournals) seems to be down.
Working on it.
By madgett on July 18, 2017
UPDATE: Site seems to be displaying as normal now.
FYI (for those that want to know) ProQuest has upgraded from “http://” formating for their URLs to “https://”. UBC Library Resource pages are in the process of being updated.
Databases on the ProQuest platform are displaying incorrectly. Basically, the landing pages are garbled.
A sample of problematic resources includes: Canadian Newsstream, ABI/INFORM Collection, ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global and several others. ProQuest eBook Central is not affected.
We have submitted a ticket. Stay tuned for updates.

*UPDATE* Slowness issues resolved. If you have further problems, please contact us using our Help Form:
There have been several reports about the eJournal Portal (“Journal Titles” on the Homepage, “Journals” under Search Collections) being very slow. We have reported this to Ex Libris/ProQuest, and they are working on it.

*This Issue Resolved*
Access to a number of Taylor & Francis ebooks online has been dropped. The links will still take you to the ebooks, but when you try to read one online, the message says:
“Sorry, you do not have access to this book. A subscription is required to access the full text content of this book.”
We hope to have this resolved by late Thursday afternoon. Sorry for the inconvenience.

UPDATE: Access has been restored to both databases!
WenziBase databases, 中国方志库 Erudition and Complete Siku (Erudition) 全四庫, are both down.
“We suffered an outage due to technical issues beyond our control that caused data loss, and we are trying to restore service as quickly as possible, but unfortunately it will likely take a few days. We will send another update when we have a better estimate on when the service will be restored. We apologize for this interruption.”
Stay tuned for updates.
