ProQuest platform – temporary off-campus access changes in Find Databases service

Proquest One Literature

DUE TO ONGOING technical problems affecting the Shibboleth environment on the main ProQuest platform, the off-campus authentication method for more than twenty separate resources in the Find Databases service has temporarily been changed to the library’s secure eZproxy server.

Off-site access to databases, such as ASSIA (Applied Social Sciences Index and Abstracts), IBSS (International Bibliography of the Social Sciences) and ProQuest One Literature, continues to be via university username and password.

The ProQuest technical team are working to resolve the problems with their Shibboleth service provider, which have led to failed logins to the main ProQuest platform from off-site.

UPDATE, 21 April: The ProQuest technical team have confirmed that the issue affecting their Shibboleth environment has now been resolved.
