Update: Access restored May 13th 8:30am PST
The vendor is continuing to monitor and address any remaining user experience issues in the coming days. We will report further updates as they are released.
A variety of Kluwer Law resources (Kluwer Law journals, Kluwer Arbitration International, Kluwer Law International, various Tax Libraries, CCH, etc.) are down. The Provider is working on a solution, but has no timeline for a fix. Problem seems to be a malware attack on their platform. Some info here

STATUS UPDATE – TOOLS WORKING NOW
The tools for the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) site on Ovid are not currently working.
Per the Provider:
“Unfortunately, due to ongoing network issues we are having at the Ovid end the JBI EBP tools are unavailable and the error message you see is appearing when people try to login to their personal accounts.
However there is a workaround, if the person ignores this message and clicks the “MyWorkspace” section of the blue navigation bar at the top of the Ovid screen they will be taken into their Personal Account information and their Searches/Alerts/Projects will be available to them.
Thank you for your continued patience while we are working to restore normal Ovid service. Unfortunately, we do not have a specific timeline for when we expect service to be fully restored and we do apologize.”
Please watch for updates.

UPDATE => ScienceDirect restored.
Elsevier has restored access to ScienceDirect.
They blocked access for almost a full day due to “Systematic downloading of significant amounts of data”. Please read about the use of Library-licensed online resources.
Do not use automated software to download articles. If you wish to do Text & Data Mining or other high-download activities, contact our Licensing Unit to see what is possible. In some cases, all the Provider needs is notification beforehand.
At this time, ScienceDirect (ebooks & ejournals from Elsevier) appears to be blocked for off-campus Access via EZproxy.
We are investigating.

UPDATE: Site back up.
Access to the Érudit platform has been unavailable since Tuesday, March 21st, 2019 due to a major fire at the Réseau d’informations scientifiques du Québec (RISQ). Technical teams are working to replace the damaged infrastructure as quickly as possible.
Updates will be shared on the Érudit Twitter account @eruditorg and we will provide notice when access is restored.
