Issue resolved.

Linking at the journal title level to select titles within EBSCOhost’s Medline can lead to an error:

Error in HttpHandler

We are working on a solution.

Linking to the Database itself and then searching within the Database works fine. EBSCOhost Medline database level is HERE.

We have launched what we are calling OpenVersion in Summon.

These are open access versions of articles sourced through Unpaywall.

What does this mean? Unpaywall is a database of “freely available” versions of articles. Alumni, Community Users or anyone can click on the OpenVersion link when it appears and be taken to a version of the article without authenticating (no CWL or EZproxying needed). FAQs can be found here.

Note if citing the article that the Unpaywall version may differ from the final published version.

WileyDue to the heavy traffic Wiley Online is experiencing from our off-campus server (EZproxy), they are occasionally blocking the IP address.

If you see an error like this on the Wiley site:

Access from your IP address has been blocked. Please contact your librarian for assistance.

Please try the following:

  • Make sure that you are NOT logged into MyVPN
  • Clear the history (cache & cookies) from your browser
  • Wait 10 – 15 minutes then try the link to the item on Wiley again.

If access problems continue, please report them to us via our Help Form with a screenshot, if possible, of the error message.

Issue Resolved

Many of the China Academic Journals (CNKI) are showing a log-in window when trying to download the PDF (a red button with IP appears). This is a problem with their California server.

To get around this, try searching for the journal on their Qingdao server.

We are working on resolving this issue.
