*UPDATE* – EZproxy update a success. All should be working better than before.
You saw the banner on the Library Home page that reads:
EZproxy Unavailable – Thursday, Feb 4th, 2:00PM – 6:00PM
But what does that mean to you?
If you are trying to connect to a subscribed eresource from off campus, Proxy will not be an option for the 4 hours. Please use myVPN.
Books 24×7 will have connection issues till possibly Friday morning. The “old” login (for anyone familiar with the blue screen) will work if you have a pre-existing account. The new will not. See the Library Information Page for your login options. Only “Alternate online access: Click here for the electronic version.” links will work in the catalog during this time.
ebrary will be unavailable from off campus unless you go through myVPN possibly till Friday morning. Personal bookshelves will be unavailable for the same period, whether on or off campus.
China Data Online will be unavailable till Friday morning or possibly later.
Global Market Information Database (GMID) will be unavailable till possibly Friday morning.
Passwords that are hidden behind links that require your UBCcard Barcode and PIN will be unavailable for the 4 hours.
We apologize for all this (and possibly more) disruptions, but the end result will be a better Proxy service. If you encounter any problems or have questions, please contact us.
