Springer eBooks access discrepancies (Case ID 11575)

  • September 5, 2019 11:48 pm
    KNOWN ISSUE:  At this time Springer is authenticating UNB Libraries users for access to ALL eBooks in their system (or it sure seems that way!) -- this is in error.

    UNB has purchased access to books published by selected imprints between 2005-2008 *ONLY*, along with having access to a smattering of Open Access titles.

    The current Springer eBook title list we use is being updated to reflect UNB's proper access which may result in a small number of titles being removed and/or added.

    Updates forthcoming ...

Taylor & Francis direct article links failing (Case ID 6470)

  • January 24, 2018 2:57 pm
    KNOWN ISSUE - Taylor & Francis direct article links are failing when trying to access the fulltext from UNBWorldCat and/or an indexing resource. View Fulltext links lead to a result set on Taylor & Francis, but your desired article should be first in the list. If not, you will need to link to the journal homepage, and find the correct year/volume/issue, etc. or run a search for the article title inside T&F.

    This issue has been reported to OCLC.
