I can't access ejournals or ebooks.

If DiscoverEd is unavailable, it should still be possible to access ejournal or ebook content.

What can I do?

Ejournals

Try going directly to the publisher's website. You should still be able to access ejournal content and other services.

On campus

If you are on campus, carry out a Google search by the journal title to identify the publisher's website - go directly to the website and it should be possible to access the ejournal.

Off campus

If you are off campus, then you can use either the Virtual Private Network (VPN), or UK Access Management Federation.

Ebooks

The main ebook services are listed on this page and if you are on campus it should be possible to access these using the links provided.

EZProxy

If there is any problem with "EZProxy", then you can still use the links provided but remove the EZProxy details.

e.g. use http://www.oxfordscholarship.com instead of

http://www.ezproxy.is.ed.ac.uk/login?url=http://www.oxfordscholarship.com

If you are off campus, then follow the same route as for ejournals [see above]
