Linking to the ALPSP Learned Journals Collection from our ejournal A-Z list or via SFX (our OpenURL resolver) is leading to an error message some thing like…
To allow http://www.swetswise.com/link/access_db?issn=1387-2877 to be used in a starting point URL, your EZproxy administrator must first authorize the hostname of this URL in the config.txt file.
Within this database’s section of config.txt, either the following line must be added:
We are looking into the problem. To get around this error on campus only, you can cut & paste whichever URL appears after the “To allow” (at the start of the message). Stay tuned.No Comments

Folks at UBC-Okanagan are experiencing problems accessing titles on the Wiley Online Library platform. Wiley seems to have dropped some important IP addresses. We are working to restore access. In the meanwhile, UBC-O folks will probably will have to access Wiley journals via MyVPN even if on campus.No Comments

EZproxy is not working for off-campus access to NetLibrary. Please use MyVPN if accessing a NetLibrary ebook from off campus for now. Should be fixed in a day or two (fingers crossed).No Comments

*UPDATE* The link to Infexes & Databases is working again. However, Library staff who were working on Resource info pages yesterday, or Subject Guides or Course Pages may want to review the work as the problem server has reverted back to an October 11th, archived version. LSIT (Systems) will be sending out an email to staff.
The link from the Library Homepage (and possibly other links elsewhere) to the Indexes and Databases page(s) is broken. Dedicated Library Systems folks are working on it. There are reports of other glitches, but they seem to have been resolved. Stay tuned!No Comments
