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.

Extended Login Time for Online Catalog

Hello WesternU Community, We are currently experiencing a longer than normal time for the online catalog (https://whsl.sirsi.net/). This delay has been noted at up to two minutes of time to process the log in. We are also still currently unable to process logins using WesternU account credentials. If you are trying to login using your WesternU email and password and receiving an error, please contact the library for your library system username and PIN. If you are trying to use the online catalog for renewals or holds, please be patient while the system processes your log in request. If you are receiving an error in trying to place a hold or renewal, please contact the library at 909-469-5323. Thank you for your patience while this issue is resolved.

Oxford University Press

UPDATE 2/23/16 - All Oxford titles should be working as expected.

UPDATE 2/22/16 - Most Oxford titles should be working as expected. Two titles are currently not showing up on our list of subscriptions but we do have access. See below for the URL's


American Journal of Hypertensionhttp://proxy.westernu.edu/login?url=https://ajh.oxfordjournals.org/content/by/year
Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Monographs (JNCI)http://proxy.westernu.edu/login?url=https://jncimono.oxfordjournals.org/content/by/year

We will update this blog once the two titles are back in our A-Z list.

Please see the below notice from Oxford University Press:

In order to provide more secure browsing access to OUP-hosted journals, OUP have moved all our journals to be hosted on https: web pages.  This change took effect on Tuesday 16th Feb 2016, and should be transparent to most customers.  However, some customers have experienced an issue when accessing our journals.  We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused and are working with our customers individually to resolve all issues as quickly as possible.

The Pumerantz Library discovered this problem today and unfortunately there is an issue with accessing Oxford Journals off-campus. We will be working with Oxford to fix the issue.

Below are the titles and direct links for Oxford Journals that we subscribe to. If you are off-campus and need a copy of an article, please contact the library.
