UNBWorldCat problem with *some* article records (Case ID 12015)
- December 4, 2019 12:32 am: KNOWN ISSUE: There is an issue with *some* article records in UNBWorldCat appearing in UNB limited search results, marked as "Held by UNB Libraries" but lacking a corresponding View fulltext link or print holdings availability information (users see a blue message bar when viewing the record via search results; a pink message bar appears when following a direct link to the article record -- off-campus users will not get this far before being inappropriately prompted to login).
Because problem records belong to particular databases in our default catalogue search, unchecking the “Group related editions” facet can expose fulltext article links in some cases. In other instances, users need to search for the journal title in UNBWorldCat or on the Journals & Newspapers search and then access the journal site to drill down following the citation details for the desired article.Please continue to report instances of this problem as we will add them to a list of known problematic article records and follow up accordingly.OCLC is working to resolve this issue for UNB and a number of other libraries.

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.
