Update 25.01.17 – This problem has been resolved, although a similar problem limited to the electronic journals publications search appears to have recurred today. This has been reported under a separate service status update. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you and thank you for your ongoing patience. EBSCO are working hard to resolve these problems.
There is an intermittent problem with EBSCO e-resources, including EBSCO ebooks, the electronic journals Publications Search (available through the Discovery Service), and the Discovery Service itself. If you receive an error message advising that an electronic resource provided by EBSCO is unavailable, this might be the reason. This problem is intermittent and so if you cannot access an electronic resource at one time, you might be able to access it later on. EBSCO are aware and working to solve this problem. We apologise to all those affected.
