These systems are maintained by a 3rd-party provider (ProQuest) on servers located off campus (meaning, in “the Cloud”). Initially, they expected the downtime to be two brief windows on Saturday. However, as several folks have noticed, the downtime extended into Sunday.
Per an email notice from ProQuest:
“We would like to apologize and inform you that our maintenance work is taking longer than expected. We understand and regret the impact that this has on you and your library’s users.”
We believe everything is working now. If you experienced an error message over the past weekend with searching or linking from the Library website, please clear the history (cache & cookies) from your browser and re-try.
If problems persist, contact us via our Help Form.No Comments

System back Online
Voyager, the system behind the UBC Library Catalogue is down. This will also affect those trying to log into EZproxy with a Barcode & PIN. Use your Campus-wide Login (CWL) if you can.

RESOLVED AGAIN! -Summon seems back to normal
October 20, 2016 – Problem Returns.
Yes, sadly the fix fell apart. Stay tuned.
UPDATE – Problem is reportedly fixed. Please contact us via the Help Form if you are still experiencing issues.
Summon (our “General” search and Discovery Tool) is experiencing problems. Some searches return the following error:
There were too many requests received from your client. This request will be ignored.
We are working on the problem. Try clearing the history (cache & cookies) from your browser and re-searching as this sometimes works.

UPDATE! All seems to be well. Report any problems to our Help Form.
Summon has launched a new interface. However, it hasn’t gone well. Links from results are broken, leading to an error message. Hopefully, a fix is coming soon. Stay Tuned!No Comments

UPDATE – Temporary Fix But…
“We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience of eBook PDFs not loading in Firefox 45 and above. This issue is a result of an update to the Firefox code base which is incompatible with our eBook viewer. We are working to fully resolve this issue as soon as possible and in the meantime have implemented a fix that has restored access to eBook PDFs in Firefox.”
“A byproduct of this fix is loss of page-to-page vertical scrolling for eBooks in Firefox, though all other navigation options remain available: table of contents links, page back and forward arrows, and entering a page number into the page number box.”
eBooks on the EBSCOhost platform don’t seem to want to open their PDF files in Firefox 45 – currently on UBC Library computers.
Please use Internet Explorer on the Library computers. On your own computer, any other browser should be okay. We’re working on it!No Comments

UPDATE! – Access was restored April 19th.
Due to excessive downloading attempts, American Physical Society (APS) has blocked access via EZproxy. We are working on a resolution. Stay TunedNo Comments

Hopefully, this will be resolved soon.
In the meanwhile, report problems to us via our Help Form. A work around (on campus only) is to take the problem URL in the error message, for example:
…and use just this part of it:
BUT this only works on campus.No Comments
