*UPDATE* – EZproxy update a success. All should be working better than before.

ezproxyYou 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.

Books24x7_Logo_Final_clearBooks 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.

ebraryebrary 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.

GMIDGlobal 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.

After discovering this morning that a brand of potato-leek soup might have undeclared clams in it….this seemed like an appropriate database to highlight.   The Healthy Canadians website has played host to a database of recalled food and consumer products since 2007.  You can search by product or by food and the site also provides links to lists of recalled foods and products by month,  and articles on various food/product safety topics.

A related site you may be interested to look at is the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.   This provides you with a great deal of  information related to food & food chain safety in Canada.  Also links to the various authorities in each region that are responsible for handling restaurant complaints and  inspections.

  • For Vancouver, this is the Coastal Health Authority.  The Health Authority has a very handy database that will allow you to search for and view restaurant inspections for food establishments in Vancouver,  North Vancouver, West Vancouver,  “Bellas,” Richmond and Bowen Island.  Just may be more information than you wanted to know!
