We have limited access through a subscription to EBSCOhost journal aggregator database “Business Source Complete.”
UPDATE : As an alternative to the “browse” method below, if you have followed a PURL into the EBSCOhost database, you can also re-do your search within the EBSCOhost Database to get to the PDF version of the HBR article.
What does this mean? It means that articles 1) cannot be Printed, 2) cannot be saved & 3) that permanent URLs (PURLs) will not work to give you the PDF. If you need to access an article from HBR, please browse for it by starting at the journal title level (it can be found using the eJournal Portal – the “Journal Titles” tab on the Library Homepage) and then going to the year, Volume, Issue and finally page for the article.
This is out of the Library’s hands as it is part of an agreement between Harvard & EBSCOhost.No Comments

Mostly, these are ebooks that were on the old eBook Library platform (retired some time ago) and are now on the ProQuest eBoook Central platform.
We are working on the issue and hope for a solutions soon.

We apologize for any confusion this causes.
We try to only list in the Catalogue and Summon ebooks that have full-text access. However, the title list we use is not pre-sorted to identify the “not for sale” titles from Taylor & Francis (this site also includes CRC Press, Routledge and several other imprints). so, we do not know which of the over 120,000 ebooks have been withdrawn until someone comes across this message.
If you find a T&F ebook like this, please report it via our Help Form and we will remove it and advise on an alternative source (if available) for the title.
Sorry for the inconvenience.No Comments

We do not have enough information.
We are working to resolve the issue.
You can still get to Ulrichsweb to see information about journals via our Resource page, and then search for the journal from there.No Comments

Our Google Scholar resource page (with instructions) is HERE (Google Scholar).
Basically, the steps are:
- Go to Google Scholar and log in, if you have a Gmail account. However, an account is not necessary.
- Under the upper left “hamburger menu” (three horizontal bars), click on “Settings“
- Click on “Library Links” and search for UBC Library (if you have a Gmail account, Google might remember your settings)
- Tick the boxes and SAVE
- Do your search. When the results come up, you will see UBC eLink to the right. Click on that for the result you are interested in
- This will take you to our Citation Linker page. Click on the blue button for Full Text and at that point you will be asked to log into EZproxy
If you run into any problems, please contact us via our Help Form including any error messages or screenshots that might be helpful.
REMEMBER: Google Scholar does not index (capture) all the resources available from UBC Library. Please use our discovery tool Summon (also from the General tab on the Library Homepage) –and– contact a Subject Librarian to make sure you are finding all available resources.

UPDATE : Issue has been temporarily resolved. IF you had problems in the past, please clear history (cache & cookies) from your browser and try to set up a folder now. Contact us if problems persist via our Help Form.
Due to technical difficulties that EBSCOhost is aware of (and working on), patrons cannot create an EBSCOhost personal folder while off campus and using EZproxy. To create a folder, patrons must be on campus using a Library computer, UBCSecure Wireless or other computer with a recognized UBC IP address. You can tell if you are at a recognized IP because the UBC crest will appear on the left side of the screen (EZproxy, as mentioned, is the exception. The crest is there, but you cannot create a folder).
After you create a folder on campus, you can log into it when you access a UBC Library subscribed EBSCOhost database off campus via EZproxy.
We will update this post as EBSCOhost works on this problem.No Comments

When searching in EBSCOhost Databases, you will now see a new link next to Journal / Article results that has a “rainbow” book case:
This link will search for the journal ISSN in the UBC Catalogue so that you can see what Print holdings (as well as Online) the Library has. This will be particularly helpful for articles with poor or no images (when we have the Print) or for locating Archives of a journal (Print or Online) that go back farther than the EBSCOhost full text holdings.No Comments
