I’ve been able to fix the problem that was preventing off campus access to SAGE Journals and to SAGE Research Methods Online. All links to these resources on the LibGuides are once again proxied so that off campus users are asked to login first.
The EZproxy server has been restarted and remote access to databases, journals, e-reserves, etc. should be working again (although I am still working on figuring out why we can’t access journals from SAGE and SAGE Research Methods Online from off campus).
[SEE UPDATE BELOW}
Our EZproxy system that handles authentication for off campus access isn’t working right for SAGE Journals and for SAGE Research Methods Online. While I await on support from SAGE, I’ve temporarily turned off the feature in LibGuides that runs the links to SAGE resources through the proxy server. This means that if you click the links on campus, they’ll work as expected, but if you click them from off campus, you’ll get a page from SAGE asking you to login (instead of getting our usual Baruch remote access login page).
As soon as I can get off campus access working again with EZproxy, I’ll send an update out on this blog and change the links in LibGuides back to their normal settings. I suspect that the problem will be resolved today or tomorrow at the latest.
UPDATE (30 June 2015, 1:22 pm) Off campus access is once again working for all SAGE resources.
