Full-text articles in EBSCOhost are unavailable

UPDATE: Full-text articles are now available via EBSCOhost Databases -- 7/2/14 9:41 am

Full-text articles through our EBSCOhost databases are currently unavailable.

The databases are all still searchable, however, when requesting full-text you end up in a loop and are unable to retrieve the article.

EBSCOhost has been contacted and they were able to duplicate the problem. They are hopeful that a resolution will be in place in the next 24 hours.

This post will be updated with more information as it becomes available.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
