Problems with Library Links – We are working on it!

Library link issues have been brought to our attention and we are working with technicians on fixing the issues.  We apologize for any inconvenience.  If the steps below do not work for you, contact the library with details on what item(s) you are trying to access.

If you are having problems accessing a permanent URL, or permalink, to a library resource OR if you are clicking the LinkSource link to search for full-text in library collections from a library database and getting a login error, that is due to this issue.  If this is the case, here are some options to help you get access to the item you need.

Here are options to help you access these items while we continue to work on repairing the issue: 

If you have a permalink and cannot access it:

  1. Look at the link in your browser window.  It should start with the following: http://library.esc.edu/login?url=
  2. If you do not see this at the start of your link, you can copy it and paste it to the start of your link and try that OR you can search in library collections for your resource as directed below.

If the item you need is an article, please do the following to locate it: 

  1. Start at the library home page:http://www.esc.edu/library
  2. Click on “Journal Finder.”
  3. Type in the title of the journal (not the article title) you want (e.g., “Journal of Business Administration”) and click “Search” (note if you have any pop-up blocker software running you may need to disable it to use these features).
  4. If that title is available in full-text format, the results will list the journal, years of available full-text coverage and the hyperlinked name of the database(s) containing articles from that journal.
  5. Click on the name of the database from the results list that contains the year(s) you want.
  6. Then browse the journal by year/volume/issue or search within the publication by author, article title or topic.

If you are looking for an e-book: 

  1. Start at the library home page:http://www.esc.edu/library
  2. Click on “Books”
  3. Search the entire E-Book Catalog or choose a specific e-book collection within the catalog to search
  4. Search for books by title, author or keywords (e.g., “foster children”)

If you are using LinkSource in a database to search the library for full-text of an article and can’t find it, you can locate it by noting the citation information for the article (the title, the journal it is in, the author, date, volume, etc.).  Take note of the database it says it is available in.  You can then locate the item by doing the following:

  1. Start at the library home page:http://www.esc.edu/library
  2. Click on “Article Databases”
  3. Scroll through the alphabetical list to find the database you were told the article is available in
  4. Select the database and search for the article there

To find a video when the permalink does not work, do the following:

  1. Make note of the database it says it is in and the title of the video
  2. Go to the library’s home page:www.esc.edu/library
  3. Click on “Multimedia”
  4. Select the “Video,” tab to view links to collections of each type of resource.
  5. Select the resource your video is located in and search for it directly there.
