Problems with LibAccess (Updated)

Submitted by liblawlord on
Filed under Library News:  Mills Innis Thode

We are currently experiencing two problems using LibAccess in Mills, Innis and Thode libraries:

  1. Some Websites are not loading and the following error message apears: "To allow /connect? session to work, your EZproxy administrator must first authorize this within the ezproxy.cfg file". The Library's I.T. Department is working to rectify this, but as a workaround in the interim, login to LibAccess first, click on the "Search the Internet" link, select a search engine and search for the site you would like to visit. Click the link to the site that appears in the search results page. You should have no trouble accessing the site in this manner.
  2. Access to some Websites that use JavaScript result in error messages when you attempt to retrieve them after logging in to LibAccess (one example is Gmail). The Library's I.T. department is currently seeking a solution to this problem and we will post a message here once it has been resolved.

Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

UPDATE November 2, 2004: The Library has implemented a new configuration of LibAccess on all computers in the libraries (Mills, Innis, and Thode) that has solved the access problems described above. Thanks for your patience.
