EBSCOhost linking issues

Two separate issues have arisen involving links to databases in the EBSCOhost interface. The first of these is that clicking on links in eSearch to services such as ‘Business Source Premier’, ‘Textile Technology Index or ‘Academic Search Elite’ resolved to an interim ‘Select New Service’ web page (see illustration below). Links in eSearch have now been amended to by-pass this additional screen for all EBSCOhost databases that LLR subscribes to.

The second issue is that the EBSCO interface link under Business Source Premier to the Enhanced Business Searching Interface (see illustration below) returns an error page. If this error page is accessed, the current EBSCOhost session will terminate, and it will be necessary to close the browser, return to eSearch and click on the database link for a second time to launch a fresh EBSCOhost session. eServices is working with EBSCOhost’s technical team to resolve this issue.
