Metasearch, SFX and EBSCOhost

The reported problem affecting metasearching and remote searching of EBSCOhost databases in eSearch has now been resolved. Searches are working normally (indicated both by repeated testing and by live tracking of the eSearch search logs) – please report any remaining anomalies you encounter (the time of the failure, if known, would help to track back through the log files to identify the problem).

The separate issue affecting deep-linking to EBSCOhost ejournal titles through SFX is still being investigated. EBSCO are aware of “sporadic failing persistent links to records within EBSCOhost” impacting on all customers of SFX and other linking services. A further update will follow once this additional service issue has also been resolved
