This has been happening especially on Wednesday mornings.The college's I.T. office will be performing network maintenance late Wednesday evening (April 15) into Thursday morning. Included in this maintenance is an update that will hopefully fix our EBSCO connection issues.Since that update is part of the regular Wednesday evening mainenance window, we may experience connection issues this Wednesday morning. Thank you for your patience while we work with I.T. to get this issue resolved.
