Our access to NEJM is currently down off campus.  The vendor has blocked us due to excessive use. NEJM is still available on campus.  If you need help accessing articles, please contact Reference at reference@westernu.edu.

We are working with the publisher to restore access and will update this blog when it has been restored.

Update: EZproxy Access

Update 6/20 6:30pm: It appears that the network maintenance that was conducted by IT tonight has resolved the issue we were having with remote access to our electronic resources for now. We hope to have additional information regarding this tomorrow.

It has been brought to our attention that some of our electronic resources (UpToDate, ScienceDirect, PAeasy, etc...) are unavailable from off-campus through the proxy server. We have contacted Technical Support and will update this post as soon as we have more information.
