RESOLVED!

We have solved the problem with Passport. Please do the following:

1) clear all history (cache & cookies) from your browser (or if you know what you are doing, clear only the history/cookies related to Passport)

2) go to the Resource page & click on Connect to Resource and log into UBC’s EZproxy as usual.

==============

Passport GMID is leading from the CWL log-in screen to it’s own log-in page rather than into the resources.

We are looking into the problem.

Stay tuned.

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!

Possible Off-Campus Access Interruptions November 21st

 

On November 21st, around 10:00 p.m. PST, the Off-Campus EZproxy Authentication system will be offline for about 10-15 minutes. This means Users authenticating from off campus to Library resources may lose access unexpectedly for a short period.

If you can’t log in to a resource or suddenly lose access to a resource, please try again after a few minutes.

If problems persist, contact us via our Help Form, and we will investigate.

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.

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.

Report any problems via our Help Form.

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.
