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 Hypertension
Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Monographs (JNCI)

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.

UpToDate required registration

Registration is now required in order to successfully login to UpToDate. Although this has always been a requirement for UpToDate, there appears to have been a way to skip the registration form when accessing, allowing WesternU users to search without registering.

This work around was discontinued by UpToDate on February 6th. If you click on the UpToDate link on the library website, login through the proxy server using your WesternU login credentials, then see the following screen,

it is likely that you have not yet registered with UpToDate. Once you fill out the new user registration and click "Submit Registration" you should then be able to search UpToDate. You will only need to register once and UpToDate should automatically log you in from that point forward (you will still need to login through the proxy server). Please see our UpToDate online guide for more detailed information regarding UpToDate registration.
