Shibboleth access to online resources – error fixed

We have now fixed the problem with Shibboleth access to online resources such as e-journals and databasesmwhich prevented access to content and generateed an error message when any user attempts to login. Apologies for the inconvenience.

For future reference, all eResources which use EZProxy to authenticate will work regardless of Shibboleth. This means most links from Discovery, the A-Z of databases and the subject guides will work rather than going directly to the resource’s website and using the institutional login there, which should be avoided currently. For example, if you use the main Scopus login from https://isguides.hw.ac.uk/az.php?a=s (not the alternative login) this should work.
Ebook Central and VLeBooks don’t have an alternative at the moment but other eBooks should be available from Discovery.
