Information for:

De Gruyter Content Freeze July 24-31

De Gruyter will be preparing to migrate into a new server infrastructure in order to improve access and performance of the De Gruyter Online platform and its content. 

The planned date for the shift is July 31, 2014 (9:00am EDT15:00 CEST). While some customers may experience slight delays in seeing the new platform, the transition should not cause any disruption in service, and already-purchased content can be accessed as normal, without any delays or loss of availability.

Please note, however, that due to technical requirements, a content freeze will be in effect from July 24-31. This means that no new content will be uploaded onto the De Gruyter website during that time - new books and journals published with De Gruyter during this period will be updated to the website after August 1st.

Please contact eresources@georgetown.edu if you have any questions regarding this announcement.

Off Campus Access, Friday June 6, 2014

On Friday, June 6, 2014, between 9am and 11am, the library will be performing a system migration, affecting off-campus access.  During this time you may be unable to access library resources, depending on your location and the resource you are attempting to access. The following instructions should help you:

I am off-campus: You will be unable to access any library resources between 9am and 11am.
 
I am on-campus: From the library's webpages, look at the link that will take you to the desired resource. In George, this is the "CONNECT TO ONLINE RESOURCE" text link. In the library's database A-Z list, the link is the database's title. Copy the URL that the text link points to. It will look something like this:
 
 
Remove the first part of the URL that reads
 
 
This will leave you with the URL
 
 
Go to this URL. You should be recognized as a Georgetown University user. Remember: this will only work if you are on-campus. This will only need to be performed during the downtime, from 9am to 11am. Before and after this period links can be followed as usual.
 
If you have any questions, or experience any problems with this process, please contact the Electronic Resources Unit at eresources@georgetown.edu. We will be happy to assist you.
