Temporary Disuption to Some Journal Links 11 PM August 24

 We try our best to make your search and access experience a seamless one. When you look up an article, then click through to the full-text version, we hope the mechanics are kept behind the scenes. Occasionally, our software providers need to provide maintenance on those systems, which can cause momentary disruptions on those services. 

Please note the affected times and resources below. We hope, with this advanced notice, you can schedule your research times around this brief inconvenience. If you have any questions, our reference librarians can offer assistance in finding alternate resources. Please Ask Us for library and online chat hours or to ask your question by email.

Scheduled System Maintenance on 24-25 August 2012
EBSCO will be performing scheduled maintenance from 24 August 2012 at 11:00 PM to 25 August at 3:00 AM Eastern Time (25 August, 03:00 – 07:00 GMT) on our e-journal full-text access servers.
Direct access to articles from EBSCO’s linking services will be unavailable for the following list of publishers:
  • National League for Nursing
  • American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP)
  • Intellect Ltd
  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology Press (MIT Press)
  • College of Business and Public Affairs
  • e-Med
  • NRC Research Press
Only articles from these eight publishers accessed via A-to-Z TOC Browse, EJS, or SmartLinks+ will be affected. These publishers account for only 80 of our more than 15,000 journals handled by our linking services, so the overall impact to your users should be minimal. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
