A total of 105 new eBooks from the Emerald Business, Management & Economics collection (the current front-list for 2015) and 529 titles from the Emerald Social Sciences collection (the archive for 1999-2014 and the front-list for 2015) have been added to Library OneSearch.
As with other Emerald eBook titles, access (at the individual title level) is by university username and password – which ensures that the library can provide authentication-aware deep-links in Library OneSearch which work from both on-campus and off-campus locations.
New titles in the BM&E collection include:
New titles from the SS collection include:
Access to the ICEA (International Civil Engineering Abstracts) service, previously made available through the Emerald platform, has been withdrawn from the Find Databases service of Library OneSearch following its removal from the Emerald platform.
Technical problems are continuing to affect the EmeraldInsight platform.
Emerald’s technical team report that problems affecting one of the service’s main servers are causing sporadic loss of access to subscription content on the platform. This means that requests from both on-campus and off-campus NTU staff and students to content subscribed to by LLR can be intermittently refused.
Emerald hope to be able to reinstate stable access to full-text subscription content shortly.
Metasearching and remote searching of the Emerald platform (which was suspended in the summer) was re-enabled ahead of the beginning of the autumn term, following the release and deployment of a new search configuration by Ex Libris.
Remote searching and metasearching of the Emerald service in eSearch has been temporarily disabled pending the release of a new search configuration by Ex Libris. Direct access to content on the EmeraldInsight platform is available as normal.
The problem affecting Shibboleth authentication on the Emerald service (reported on 19 March) was resolved shortly afterwards. Shibboleth authentication is working normally again on the Emerald Insight platform.
Emerald’s technicians are working to resolve an issue which is preventing some off-campus access login requests (using Shibboleth) from resolving successfully.
Where the problem occurs, a customer sees the error message “Institution login could not be completed” once they have attempted to login to the service from off-campus.
While their investigations continue, Emerald have provided us with a temporary username and password which NTU staff and students can use to access the service from off-campus. This account will be active for the next seven days, and can be used simultaneously by different staff members and students – these details can be requested from the eServices team.
These details must be entered in the Emerald login boxes on the top-left hand corner of the main Emerald Insight interface.
These temporary account details can be shared with staff members and students as required in the event of Shibboleth login problems.
A further update will follow once Emerald have confirmed that Shibboleth based authentication is working normally once again.
Emerald have now confirmed, that the access problems we have been experiencing form the Delegated Centres page has been resolved.
Access from our Delegated Centres page for Internet Explorer users has been tested and works fine, Firefox is still gives a security prompt. However, it is ok to accept this and click continue and log on as normal.
Off-campus access to the Emerald platform is now by university username and password (using the Shibboleth framework). Links and prompts in eSearch and SFX have been updated accordingly.
A guide to Shibboleth authentication on the Emerald platform has been added to the eServices Support wiki.
Members of relevant Delegated Centres and NTU Alumni will continue to use an Athens username and password to access the Emerald service.
The link from the our Delegated Centres web page to Emerald has now been updated, and access restored.
Emerald have reported that they are implementing a fix for this problem which will be launched early next week .
eServices will continue to monitor the situation
