IMPORTANT NEWS 5/21/13
Several patrons have reported problems with accessing the library databases. This access problem has been identified by the ITS staff as a DNS error and has been fixed at the college. However, the problem could take 12 or more hours before the problem of accessing anything with an albright.edu URL is totally fixed. [You may want to keep trying because it could get fixed earlier than that.]
One possible suggestion is to try using your smart phone to access some of our mobile accessible databases. If you have a smart phone you MAY be able to do some searching if your phone provider accesses a different DNS table than your computer internet provider. The direct mobile URLs are:
- EbscoHost (PsycINFO, PsycARTICLES)-- http://felix.albright.edu/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?authtype=ip,uid&profile=mobile and then select the database you want.
- JSTOR -- http://felix.albright.edu/login?url=http://mobile.jstor.org
- Lexis Nexis - http://felix.albright.edu/login?url=http://www.lexisnexis.com/hottopics/lnacademic/mobile
We apologize for any problems you are now experiencing.
