PsychiatryOnline is down for off-campus access.

This site (with all its ebooks and other content – including DSM-5) can currently be accessed on campus only.

The issue is being worked on. Stay tuned!

The UBC Library DOES NOT subscribe to Harvard Business Review.

We have limited access through a subscription to EBSCOhost journal aggregator database “Business Source Complete.”

UPDATE : As an alternative to the “browse” method below, if you have followed a PURL into the EBSCOhost database, you can also re-do your search within the EBSCOhost Database to get to the PDF version of the HBR article.

What does this mean? It means that articles 1) cannot be Printed, 2) cannot be saved & 3) that permanent URLs (PURLs) will not work to give you the PDF. If you need to access an article from HBR, please browse for it by starting at the journal title level (it can be found using the eJournal Portal – the “Journal Titles” tab on the Library Homepage) and then going to the year, Volume, Issue and finally page for the article.

This is out of the Library’s hands as it is part of an agreement between Harvard & EBSCOhost.

ProQuest eBook sites and Database sites will be off-line on August 18th & August 19th for maintenance.

eBooks will be down from approximately 9:00 a.m. PDT till 2:00 p.m. PDT August 18th.

Other resources will be down from 7:00 p.m. august 18th till 8 hours later on August 19th.

Note: times may change without notice as this is all happening on the ProQuest side.

Some resources affected include:

  • eBook Central
  • ProQuest Databases
  • ProQuest Congressional
  • ProQuest Dialog
  • Chadwyck-Healey databases

UPDATE : Issue has been temporarily resolved. IF you had problems in the past, please clear history (cache & cookies) from your browser and try to set up a folder now. Contact us if problems persist via our Help Form.

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.

From now until December 3rd we’re trialing two new databases at Xwi7xwa Library: Ancestry Library Edition and Ethnic NewsWatch.


Ancestry library Edition
is a partnership between ancestry.com and ProQuest, and offers a wealth of genealogical resources from the United States and the United Kingdom, alongside record collections from Canada, Europe, Australia and other countries.

You can access Ancestry Library Edition through the UBC Library Index and Database collection, or find a research guide for the databases here. We’d really appreciate your feedback on this resource, which you can give in person or by following this link.


Ethnic NewsWatch
offers coverage of grassroots, community, and independent press publications and is particularly valuable as a source of Indigenous newspapers and newsletters. It is an older database, as you might notice from the terminology and metadata it uses, but is still being updated with new issues of community-led and small press Indigenous publications.

You can access and explore Ethnic NewsWatch through the UBC Library Index and database collection, or visit ProQuest’s research guide for further information. Once again, we welcome and feedback on both the contents and the experience of using the resource, either in person or through the feedback form.

We’re running these trials to see how these resources might fit your needs and the needs of our collection at Xwi7xwa, so please get in touch and let us know what you think.

a place of mind, The University of British Columbia
