Alternative Points of Access to Databases [UPDATED]

28 02 2017

UPDATE 28 Feb. 2017, 2:59 pm: LibGuides is working again.


Springshare’s services, which includes LibGuides, are all down (check their Twitter feed for updates).  This means that we can’t get to:

  • research guides
  • database list (both the A-Z list and the subject lists)
  • e-reserves

What still works:

  • OneSearch (and its “View Now” button that links to the full text of articles and ebooks on various database platforms)
  • Access to the set of databases centrally purchased by CUNY: http://www2.cuny.edu/libraries/e-resources/

As soon as service is restored, I’ll share the news here.

By way of context, Springshare is down because they rely on Amazon Web Services, which is having a major outage affecting all sorts of web and mobile services.
