E-Resources Access Alert – EZProxy downtime

Access to E-Resources using EZProxy will be unavailable on Tuesday 9th June between 8.30am and 9.30am followed by a further 1 hour at risk period.  This is to allow our EZProxy service to be upgraded and improve off campus access to our e-resources.

Please see http://edin.ac/1bjVuCC for details of how to access E-Resources during this time.  Further updates may also appear on the IS Alerts page http://reports.is.ed.ac.uk/alerts/.

We apologise for any inconvenience during this time.


Downtime Alert – E-Journals

At 10pm tonight, our e-journals will become unavailable for about 1 hour via the e-journal A-Z links, Searcher and the catalogue.  This maintenance work is expected to resolve recent instability issues affecting e-journal access.

During this time, please access the journals directly on campus or off campus via the VPN or by adding http://ezproxy.is.ed.ac.uk/login?url=  to the front of a url eg for nature journal, the link is http://www.nature.com and then add http://ezproxy.is.ed.ac.uk/login?url= to make it http://ezproxy.is.ed.ac.uk/login?url=http://www.nature.com which will then work off campus.  There is also the option to log in off campus via UKFederation/Shibboleth if offered by the publisher.
