Periodicals by Title Maintenance

January 11th, 2013 by jimm wetherbee in Announcements, Databases

Database MaintenanceEBSCO will be performing scheduled maintenance on Periodicals by Title between Friday, January 18th 11:00 p.m. and Saturday, January 19th 3:00 a.m.

Direct access to articles from EBSCO’s linking services will be unavailable for the following list of publishers:

  • National League for Nursing
  • American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP)
  • Intellect Ltd
  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology Press (MIT Press)
  • College of Business and Public Affairs
  • e-Med
  • IUPAC
  • NRC Research Press

Only articles from these eight publishers accessed via Periodicals by Title Table of Contents Browse, EJS, or SmartLinks+ will be affected. These publishers account for only 80 of EBSCO’s more than 15,000 journals handled by our linking services, so the overall impact should be minimal.
