Several months ago, ProQuest acquired the acclaimed Congressional Information Service (CIS®) and University Publications of America (UPA) product lines from LexisNexis.  You can read more about this in the press release.

UBC Library subscribes  to two collections involved in the transfer.  After a bumpy transition, we’re happy to report our access is now active on the new platforms.

*UPDATE* All fixed, per ProQuest.

“We are currently experiencing system difficulties and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you and your users. We have every available resource working on the problem…”

Hmm. Sounds like a peck of trouble down at the ol’ ProQuest place. Everything seemed to be working briefly around 3:30 pm. Stay tuned
