Sage login problem resolved!

July 2, 2015

While we await the resolution of the Taylor and Francis issue, the problems we have been having with Sage recently have been resolved, and you should be able to access these journals in the normal way, i.e. with your Bolton network ID and password once again.

Hopefully the Taylor and Francis problem will be fully resolved shortly!


Temporary solution to the Sage problem

June 23, 2015

The problem with off-campus access to Sage Journals continues, and as it appears that it is a fairly major technical problem, we do not know when the problem might be resolved. The good news is that we have a temporary workaround in place that will enable you to access Sage Journals off-campus in the interim. To do so, you will need an additional username and password that is available from the Subject Help Desk. Keep checking this blog for further updates!

This is turning into one of the most bizarre reasons for not having remote access I’ve come across in 10 years of working with electronic resources – to say there has been a crossing of virtual wires is something of an understatement – and, as I really should do more often, I wish to thank publicly the UK Access Management Federation, Sage and Highwire for their help in getting this resolving for us. And you, our users, for your continued patience!

Ongoing problems with Sage journals off-campus

The providers of the platform are working to resolve the issue as soon as they possibly can, but as yet there is no indication as to when this issue might be resolved. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

OUP/Sage and Oxford Art Online problems resolved

February 9, 2015

It’s a happy Monday here in electronic resources corner…

The issues we were having with access to full-text content off-campus on both the Sage and OUP platforms appear to have been resolved, although just keep in mind that in the case of the latter, access off-campus is difficult, so make sure that you take a look at the access notes for this particular resource on the library website. The problems with Oxford Art Online have also been resolved, and that resource is working as it should.

Sage/OUP access issues off-campus

January 27, 2015

And another one… We have hit upon a problem with off-campus access to Sage and OUP. When you find the article you wish to read and click on “Login via your institution” you may see a message to tell you that this particular type of authentication is not set up for this institution. This has been reported, and it is hoped it will be resolved as soon as possible. Again, apologies for any inconvenience caused.
