EBSCO Databases and Interlibrary Loan

Access problems to EBSCO databases have been resolved, BUT interlibrary loan requests that were generated in EBSCO databases between Friday the 17th and Monday the 20th did not get transmitted to our interlibrary loan account, and we have no way to discover them.

If you placed an interlibrary loan request between 1:45 p.m. Friday and 3:45 p.m. Monday, please resubmit it.  You can do so either either by placing a new request or by forwarding to ill@ashland.edu the confirmation message you may have received.  Thank you!

If you have questions call us at 419-289-5402.

EBSCO Databases Slowness

Aceess to EBSCO databases is currently intermittent.  You may encounter a "system problem" message or other problem.  It appears, however, that a bit of extra patience will typically be rewarded with results.

We will post a message when we learn that the problems have been resolved.
