E-Journal Locator Outage

Hello WesternU Community,

We are currently experiencing an unscheduled outage of the Library's E-Journal locator on the Electronic Resources page (http://www.westernu.edu/library/library-electronic-resources). The outage is being looked into but there is no ETA at this time for when the service will be restored.

During this outage we would like to direct you to the Journals tab located in the Pumerantz Library Discover Service box on the Library's Landing page (http://www.westernu.edu/library).

We thank you for your patience while this issue is corrected.
