ScienceDirect => Off-Campus Access Blocked

EZproxy (off-campus access, where you log in with your CWL) has been blocked by ScienceDirect. We are working to get the block lifted for the weekend.  Stay Tuned!

UPDATE => ScienceDirect restored.

Elsevier has restored access to ScienceDirect.

They blocked access for almost a full day due to “Systematic downloading of significant amounts of data”. Please read about the use of Library-licensed online resources.

Do not use automated software to download articles. If you wish to do Text & Data Mining or other high-download activities, contact our Licensing Unit to see what is possible. In some cases, all the Provider needs is notification beforehand.

Connect to Library Resources

At this time, ScienceDirect (ebooks & ejournals from Elsevier) appears to be blocked for off-campus Access via EZproxy.

We are investigating.

Stay tuned.

*UPDATE*  The Rogue Account has been blocked. Access via EZproxy is back to normal.

Due to a “security breach in [our] servers via organized hackers from R____a” (no need to name the actual country), ScienceDirect has blocked our EZproxy server IP. For now, please use myVPN to connect to ScienceDirect ejournals & ebooks if you are off campus. On campus, there should be no problem.

Stay tuned for updates.
