An update on the Springer migration to the new SpringerLink site. The change over will take place on Nevember 26th. And, unfortunately, any personal “My SpringerLink” accounts on the old platform will not migrate. You will need to create an account on the new site. Per Springer:
“Do our current SpringerLink users have to create new personal accounts on link.springer.com to make use of all personalization features, or will these personal usernames and passwords be migrated from SpringerLink?”
“Answer: Unfortunately, these personal accounts and usernames and passwords cannot be transferred and new personal accounts will need to be created to take advantage of personalization features.”
After November 26th, “You will need to go to link.springer.com and set up a new profile/account. Make sure to do this while within the institution’s IP range as you will then be automatically associated to the institution’s access rights.”
The new Springer site may offer to let you set up an ID & password for remote access. Don’t bother. All our remote access is via EZproxy, not individual IDs.
