EJC: Great News!

Great news from the OhioLINK What's New blog concerning EJC:

Electronic Journal Center Now Fully Restored

Electronic Journal Center has now been fully restored and once again provides access to more than 12.5 million articles.

There is still some clean up work happening in thebackground, but users can once again search, browse and find access to articles. New articles (those received after February 3) are not currently findable via the EJC search function as we are updating the index that makes searching possible. You can still find new articles by browsing for aparticular article from the journal title page. Articles received prior to February 3 are searchable. Please let us know if any searches point you to the wrong article. - Candi Clevenger, 3/18/08

OhioLINK: EJC Update

OhioLINK has been working diligently to repair and restore Electronic Journal Center content. Below is the latest update from OhioLINK's What's New blog:

EJC Update: Most EJC Content Has Been Restored

The majority of OhioLINK Electronic Journal Center content has been restored following the hardware failure on February 4. Only some content from Elsevier remains unavailable, but we continue to restore this content around the clock. We expect the remaining content to be completely restored by the end of the week.

Since most of the EJC content is available, we have reverted back to the normal EJC home page which provides more options for searching and browsing.

If you are unable to find a specific article or issue in the EJC for a journal published by Elsevier, you may be able to access the missing content via Elsevier’s Web site. A link placed at the bottom of all affected EJC pages will direct you to the same journal on Elsevier’s Web site. -- Candi Clevenger, 3/4/09
