On-Campus Wireless Database Access Problem - RESOLVED

UPDATE (11-19-14): This problem has been resolved by ITS.

Students are reporting that while using CBU's wireless network on their laptops, they are not able to access our databases. What happens is they click on a link to a library database, like Academic Search Premier, and the page tries to load for several seconds followed by a Page Not Available error.

Temporary Workaround:
Once you reach the error page, look up at the address bar. You'll see a link to the database preceded by an EZproxy prefix. Delete the EZproxy prefix before the database url, hit Enter, and you should be granted immediate access to the database.

We are working to resolve this problem as soon as possible. 

Don't hesitate to contact us at or 901-321-3432 for further assistance.

Off-campus access problems

UPDATE (November 10, 2014) : this problem has been resolved.

The direct links to databases in the Articles and Databases dropdown list under Databases by Title on the new website are failing to load from off-campus.

You can get to working links by click on the link to Find Articles, Videos, and More. That will take you to an A-Z list where all the links work. The links under Databases by Subject are also working.
