THE PROBLEMS AFFECTING off-campus access to article-level content on the EBSCOhost platform reported earlier this week have now been resolved.

Off-campus request from Library OneSearch, or from any other discovery location, now resolve through a two-step process to the NTU Single Sign-on page. Once authentication is complete, off-campus access to article-level material completes successfully.

EBSCOhost – issues with article-level off-campus access from Library OneSearch and SFX

EBSCOhost logo

THE LIBRARY IS working with the technical team at EBSCOhost to resolve an issue with article-level access to EBSCOhost content from off-campus locations.

At present, content requests are, in some cases, resolving to an error page displaying an ‘Authentication Error 103’ (see below) following an the attempt to login through the NTU Single Sign-on service.

EBSCOhost 103 error

Database level access to all EBSCOhost content is unaffected. For the time being, the recommended workaround when access article-level EBSCOhost content from off-campus is to access the the required database from the Find Databases service and then locate the required content.

A further update will follow once the issue is confirmed as resolved.

UPDATE: This issue was confirmed as resolved on 27 February 2020.

EBSCOhost – linking issues affecting SFX

EBSCO have just launched some unannounced changes to the way that EBSCOhost processes link requests from SFX (and other OpenURL resolvers) which are resulting in error messages and failed connections for some full-text requests on the EBSCOhost platform.

Ex Libris are in active discussions with EBSCO and, once the changes have been documented and understood, Ex Libris will design, package and release fixes for the EBSCOhost linking logic for SFX. The library will then need to deploy the updated parsers to SFX to resolve the problem.

A further update will follow once as this process is completed, but, until the fixes are in place, a larger proportion of EBSCOhost link requests from SFX than normal will result in errors. For the majority of full-text content on the EBSCOhost platform it is possible to copy and share an authentication-aware ‘permalink’ which will provide a persistent deep-link to full-text outcomes.
