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

EBSCO has taken over the H.W. Wilson databases. These are primarily Education, Humanities, Social Science, Fine Art, Architecture and Law focused Index & Abstract databases —some with Full Text. As a result, the following Resource pages now point to EBSCOhost sites rather than H.W. Wilson sites:
Education Full Text
Education Index Retrospective: 1929-1983
Index to Legal Periodicals and Books
Index to Legal Periodicals Retrospective: 1908-1981
Library Literature & Information Science Full Text
Humanities & Social Sciences Index Retrospective: 1907-1984
Readers’ Guide Retrospective: 1890-1982
Art Index Retrospective
Art Full Text
Summon, the Citation Linker and the Catalogue will catch up to these changes over the next few days.No Comments

Records for the 2012 SpringerLINK ebooks were added (our mistake) to the Catalogue and Summon before we had the access organized. In fact, due to higher-than-expected costs, it is probable that many 2012 SpringerLINK ebooks will not be purchased by the Library.
So, if you come across an ebook that is published by “Springer” and has a date of “2012” and you cannot get access to it, please still report it via out Help Form, but be aware that access may not be possible.
Sorry for any inconvenience and confusion this may cause.3 Comments

*UPDATE* “We currently have a Critical Service Issue open and our technical team is working to address the CINAHL issues as soon as possible.“–EBSCO
The EBSCOhost database CINAHL [ Cumulated Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature] is currently experiencing problems with Subject Heading searching. The vendor is aware of this and are working on it.
Stay tuned!No Comments
