Summon error messages

summon_large_logo_312x53_2012_01We’ve had reports that a few searches on Summon are resulting in the following error message:

“We’re sorry, but something went wrong. We’ve been notified about this issue and we’ll take a look at it shortly”

We have already reported this to the Summon technical support and will post more news here as we have it.

Don’t forget that you can still use the databases individually, look at your Subject Guide > Research Databases for those that are relevant to you, or use the A-Z list.

EBSCO Databases – current problems

We are currently experiencing intermittent problems with our EBSCO databases. The problems are affecting saved searches and documents kept in the ‘My Folder’ area.

You may notice that after using an EBSCO database for a few minutes the site starts to stick or hang – e.g. you cannot click on a title to view a full citation, you cannot see search history, you cannot save searches or switch databases.

We have reported this to EBSCO and they are investigating, if you notice this happening to you please email us or use this form to let us know the details of the problem.
