Britannica Online EZProxy Server Settings Announcement

from Britannica:

Our new Britannica Online Academic Edition is now live. The response to the new, more engaging interface and enhanced search and discovery has been positive.

However, a number of our subscribers using EZProxy are experiencing difficulties. While we allow remote users to search our database through proxy server, we cannot at this time certify all functionality of the Britannica Online Academic Edition through the EZProxy proxy servers. With the release of the new version of Britannica Online Academic Edition, we highly recommend incorporating "settings" listed below into your current EZProxy configuration file (config.txt). Once you have updated your configuration file, restart EZProxy to make the change take effect. Then test to see whether or not the issue is resolved.

EBSCO ELM Databases -- Access Issues Update

EBSCO has informed us that everything should be fixed later today. It appears that access has been restored to about half of the EBSCO ELM databases; however, sites will still have some dead links as EBSCO's system continues to update. EBSCO has fixed the problem that caused the break in access, but it is taking longer than they anticipated to update the over 1200 affected sites.

We understand that some institutions in the Minitex region are experiencing difficulties when trying to access the EBSCO ELM databases. We are working to restore access to these databases as quickly as possible.
