Known Issues

Ongoing: Users may see links to various online resources returning a blank page, or various HTTP errors. These issues are typically due to interference from cookies and other files cached in the user’s browser, and can often be resolved by clearing the browser’s history, or using a different browser, and then retrying the link. Clearing only the cookies specifically for the website affected may also be an effective solution. See the Libraries FAQ on this subject. 

15 August 2023: Links in catalog records to individual items in the database "Everyday Life and Women in America" are currently returning a "page not found" message. The provider has been notified and is working on a solution. In the meantime, to find a particular document in this collection, use the Search function on the database site.   

Platform Updates

29 August 2023: The African American Periodicals, 1825-1995 and Joint Publications Research Service (JPRS) Reports databases now include the Readex "Text Explorer" tool, which conducts automated analysis of lexical patterns in a specified corpus of documents retrieved from the collections. Read a blog post discussing the functionality of this tool and potential use cases.

13 July 2023ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Citation Index is now searchable on the Web of Science platform, as a standalone database and as part of the "All Databases" search. These records currently do not include cited reference indexing, so functionality such as Related Records search and navigation to the cited reference list for a dissertation or thesis is not available. Citation indexing for dissertations and theses will be included in a future Web of Science release. For more information, see the Web of Science Release Notes.

1 January 2023: Downloads and synchronizations of Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) software will require a new activation key. The current key will not be valid after December 31, 2022. For information about CSD software and the new activation details, contact the Electronic Resources Librarian.
