Due to technical difficulties that EBSCOhost is aware of (and working on), patrons cannot create an EBSCOhost personal folder while off campus and using EZproxy. To create a folder, patrons must be on campus using a Library computer, UBCSecure Wireless or other computer with a recognized UBC IP address. You can tell if you are at a recognized IP because the UBC crest will appear on the left side of the screen (EZproxy, as mentioned, is the exception. The crest is there, but you cannot create a folder).

After you create a folder on campus, you can log into it when you access a UBC Library subscribed EBSCOhost database off campus via EZproxy.

We will update this post as EBSCOhost works on this problem.

New search linking from EBSCOhost to the UBC Catalogue for Journals

When searching in EBSCOhost Databases, you will now see a new link next to Journal / Article results that has a “rainbow” book case:

 

This link will search for the journal ISSN in the UBC Catalogue so that you can see what Print holdings (as well as Online) the Library has. This will be particularly helpful for articles with poor or no images (when we have the Print) or for locating Archives of a journal (Print or Online) that go back farther than the EBSCOhost full text holdings.
