Adios Athens - Latest Updates

The vast majority of our electronic resources can now be accessed off campus by using network (or Blackboard) username and password, rather than the old Athens credentials.  There are a small number of outstanding issues, which are:-
Ovid titles currently default to IP access which is seamless on campus but which displays an error message off campus.  However, they can be accessed by ignoring the message and selecting Institutional Login.
Gale titles can be accessed off campus but may require users to clear their cache between sessions.
Elsevier titles still require users to select their institution to gain off campus access.
Hein Online titles still require off campus users to select their institution and then search again for their requested title.

It is hoped to resolve all of these problems in the very near future.
