THE TECHNICAL ISSUES preventing login requests submitted through the NTU Single Sign-on service from resolving correctly reported earlier have now been resolved.
Although the service will not return to full capacity for several hours, it is already possible to log in to the full range of available library resources and services (which rely on SSO) using an NTU university username and password.
Technical issues affecting the NTU Single Sign-on service mean that many electronic library resources are currently inaccessible from off-campus. Many library resources and services that require university username and password authentication on-campus are also affected. Teams across the university are working to resolve the problem as soon as possible.
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.
FOLLOWING A COMPREHENSIVE review of the LinkedIn Learning content in Library OneSearch, more than 8,200 individual current course records are now discoverable in both LOS and LOS Pro.
All legacy Lynda.com records have been migrated to the LinkedIn Learning equivalents, and updated with all current metadata and linking syntax; withdrawn (and superseded) courses have been removed; and thousands of new LinkedIn Learning courses added.
All Lynda.com content on Resource Lists in the RLMS has also been updated with the current LinkedIn Learning content equivalent.
While the previous Lynda.com web links automatically redirected to the LinkedIn Learning platform (ensuring that access has remain uninterrupted), new arrangements now in place will ensure that course content discoverable in Library OneSearch will align with evolving LinkedIn Learning provision in the future.
Course content discoverable in LOS includes the following examples:
