We discovered this afternoon that Off Campus access to PubMed and to all EBSCOhost databases is returning a 502 error. Our IT support is working to resolve the issue, but we will probably be without off-campus access for the weekend. The same error appears when trying to access the databases through CITRIX.
Titles of individual journals through the catalog appear to be working. Please contact the Circulation Desk at either Library for additional help.
Although we are hoping that our system will not be down for the bulk of the day, if you need an article during this time here are a few tips and an alternative to get articles during this downtime.
If you want to check whether the Library owns a journal, the E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List is a good source but only from on campus; unfortunately, the majority of links on the list will not work as they rely on talking with our system in order to get you to the journal.
If you have the author and title of the article you need, when on campus you can attempt to get to the journal using the CrossRef Free DOI Guest Search. When you use the “Search on Article Title” option, if a match is found you will be able to use the link to get to the article:
There is no guarantee that we have access rights to the journal, though, but this is a way to get to the article while our system is down.
Even though INNOPAC, the Library’s catalog, will not be available, Library staff will have other ways to get to journals and resources during this downtime, so please contact us if you need help.
INNOPAC and off campus access to library materials will be down for a scheduled upgrade on Wednesday, June 28th. While we hope the system will be back up quickly, we have allowed an all-day window for this upgrade. The upgrade is expected to start at 5:30am.
