Just a quick note, to let you know that the issues that (EBSCO) Discovery Search was experiencing were resolved yesterday.

Until further notice, please avoid using the Library’s Discovery search, or — if you do decide to use it — do not rely on its linking, (which is currently going completely haywire). Opt for clicking on “Find Articles, Databases, eBooks,” and selecting Databases by Subject. Two large, multi-disciplinary databases to start with are: ProQuest Central and EBSCO’s Academic Search Complete.

Other schools utilizing EBSCO’s Discovery Search are reporting similar problems, so — a fix for Discovery Search links may transpire in the very near future.

We will keep you posted!
