EBSCO Database Issues and Workaround

We are still experiencing firewall issues with our EBSCO databases (Academic Search Complete, Communication and Mass Media Complete, and others) and are working to correct the problem.

If you use more than one search term you may get a connection error and will not get your list of articles.  This seems to only happen on campus.

As a temporary workaround, you can change the Search Modes option on the Advanced Search Screen.  Under Search Modes, choose Boolean/Phrase.  Then type your multiple search terms in one search box above.  See the image below.

Thank you for your patience.  Databases from ProQuest and other vendors are working normally.
