Database Access Restored

Database access is working fine again.  If that’s not the case for you just close and reopen your browser, and if problems persist let us know at library@ashland.edu.  If problems recur in the future keep in mind the alternate path to databases via OhioLINK.  Best wishes to all for the Winter Break!

Database Access

Access to research databases through the library webpages has been lost as maintenance takes place on University servers.  Many OhioLINK-provided databases, however, remain accessible through the OhioLINK website.  Look on the OhioLINK site for the Quick Link to Research Databases, select Ashland University, and click the link to the "Listing of OhioLINK Provided Research Databases." If you need assistance write to us at library@ashland.edu
