WileyWiley OnLine Library Moving UPDATE Moved March 17 or 18 2018

Well, looks like the move happened. Site looks different and has some changes to functionality, I believe. Have a look HERE.

Please talk to your Subject or Liaison Librarian if you have any questions about using the site or its features. Contact us at the Help Form below to report any problems.

=======

We were just advised that Wiley will be migrating to their new platform this weekend [March 17th or 18th]. Redirects will be in place, but there will be no dual access period. Wiley does not anticipate any downtime. Although the base URL remains the same, the URLs at the journal level will be changing

Please report any problems to our Help Form.

UPDATE: RefWorks reports that this is fixed.

New RefWorks and Google Docs are not working together.

There is a system wide problem with New RefWorks not working with Google Docs. RefWorks is working on resolving this issue.

Instead of Google Docs, please use another word processor, such as MS Word.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

FYI:

Due to scheduled maintenance, ProQuest Ebook Central will be unavailable at:

Saturday, January 20, from 10am to 4pm Pacific Time

Articles from some Oxford journals cannot be reached through Summon and the Citation Linker. Our vendor is working on restoring article level linking.

 

Work around:

If the “Full Text Online” link in Summon leads to the Citation Linker with “Browse Journal”, go back to the Summon results, click on “Preview” and then on the DOI, if present. This may link directly to the article.

Otherwise, when in the Citation Linker, click on “Browse Journal” and search for the article by title on the Oxford journal website.

Apologies for the inconvenience. Please continue to report problems via our Help Form.

Taylor & Francis Online will be down for maintenance Wednesday, January 25th from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm PST.

From Taylor & Francis:

Dear Customer,

Taylor & Francis Online: database maintenance, Wednesday 25th January

I’m writing to let you know that Taylor & Francis Online will be unavailable from Wednesday 25th January (23:00 GMT) to Thursday 26th January (03:00 GMT). This is due to scheduled database maintenance by our platform partner, Atypon. We anticipate this maintenance will take four hours.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you or your users.

 

KnovelThe ebook aggregator Knovel is pulling all its Wiley-Blackwell titles at the end of March. They had pulled access earlier, but restored it temporarily.

The reason behind the pulling is that the agreement between Wiley and Knovel was not renewed for 2014. This is a decision between these two companies: the publisher Wiley and the platform Knovel.

ebookMyiLibrary has set a limit on how fast you can flip pages in order to protect entire ebooks from being downloaded by machine. If you happen to be flipping through an ebook (and you have to be flipping mighty quickly) and see this message pop up:

…please fill in the captcha and prove you are human. One an ebook is locked, it is locked for everyone for 24 hours… and that’s no fun at all!

An update on the Springer migration to the new SpringerLink site. The change over will take place on Nevember 26th. And, unfortunately, any personal “My SpringerLink” accounts on the old platform will not migrate. You will need to create an account on the new site. Per Springer:

“Do our current SpringerLink users have to create new personal accounts on link.springer.com to make use of all personalization features, or will these personal usernames and passwords be migrated from SpringerLink?”

“Answer: Unfortunately, these personal accounts and usernames and passwords cannot be transferred and new personal accounts will need to be created to take advantage of personalization features.”

After November 26th, “You will need to go to link.springer.com and set up a new profile/account. Make sure to do this while within the institution’s IP range as you will then be automatically associated to the institution’s access rights.”

The new Springer site may offer to let you set up an ID & password for remote access. Don’t bother. All our remote access is via EZproxy, not individual IDs.

You can read about the new Springer site here.
