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.

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

We are investigating.

Stay tuned.

Off-campus access to ScienceDirect (Elsevier) ejournals & ebooks has been restored via EZproxy.

If you had problems yesterday, clear the history (cache & cookies) from your browser before trying to connect.

Off-Campus access via EZproxy is down. We are working on it. Stay Tuned!

The issue is being worked on. Stay tuned!

Using Google Scholar with EZproxy (the UBC Library off-campus authentication method) can be tricky. You need to set up a Google Scholar session BEFORE logging into EZproxy.

Our Google Scholar resource page (with instructions) is HERE (Google Scholar).

Basically, the steps are:

  • Go to Google Scholar and log in, if you have a Gmail account. However, an account is not necessary.
  • Under the upper left “hamburger menu” (three horizontal bars), click on “Settings
  • Click on “Library Links” and search for  UBC Library  (if you have a Gmail account, Google might remember your settings)
  • Tick the boxes and SAVE
  • Do your search. When the results come up, you will see  UBC eLink  to the right. Click on that for the result you are interested in
  • This will take you to our Citation Linker page. Click on the blue button for Full Text and at that point you will be asked to log into EZproxy

If you run into any problems, please contact us via our Help Form including any error messages or screenshots that might be helpful.

REMEMBER: Google Scholar does not index (capture) all the resources available from UBC Library. Please use our discovery tool Summon (also from the General tab on the Library Homepage) –and– contact a Subject Librarian to make sure you are finding all available resources.

 

oxford logoDue to a change in how URLs are formatted (http VS https), some Oxford Journals are popping up error messages on and off campus.

Hopefully, this will be resolved soon.

In the meanwhile, report problems to us via our Help Form. A work around (on campus only) is to take the problem URL in the error message, for example:

http://ezproxy.library.ubc.ca/login?url=https://jiplp.oxfordjournals.org/

…and use just this part of it:

https://jiplp.oxfordjournals.org/

BUT this only works on campus.

Wiley

**UPDATE – ACCESS RESTORED** If you had problems yesterday, Please clear the history (cache & cookies) from browsers and try accessing Wiley now. Contact us via the Help Form if problems persist.

Working on a solution. Watch this space for updates.
