OhioLINK's Electronic Journal Center

Update: The EJC is still experiencing problems. If you need to access a journal article that would normally be provided by the EJC, please do not hesitate to contact a librarian, and we'll do our best to provide a work-around. In particular, we except to have difficulties with off-campus access of our articles until the situation is resolved.

Below is a message from OhioLINK. For fuller and up-to-date information, please visit the Electronic Journal Center page.
A message from OhioLINK Important Message to the OhioLINK community of students, faculty, and staff:

Beginning Wednesday afternoon, February 4, the OhioLINK computer disk storage system suffered a widespread, and supposedly not possible, multiple component failure affecting all major services with the exception of the OhioLINK Library Catalog. We have restored all services except the Electronic Journal Center (EJC). Restoration of the EJC remains under vigorous analysis, but unfortunately we know that any solution will not be immediate. In light of this, we are taking immediate steps to provide alternative access to the resources of the EJC through the various Web sites of the EJC journal publishers.

As noted on this page, we have immediate access to many EJC publisher sites and are working to expand access to the rest as quickly as possible. While the EJC is down, we will continue to improve this site to direct you to the proper publishers. We will also work to adjust our systems that link article citations to full text in the EJC by redirecting links to the publisher sites. We are examining every possibility to keep you connected to resources you need and to improve that connectivity as quickly as possible, while the EJC is not available.

We will keep you up to date through this Web page and the “New at OhioLINK” announcements at Your local library will also always know the latest news.

The OhioLINK staff is sincerely sorry for this significant disruption in services. We remain committed, as we have since 1992, to providing high quality information resources on a consistent and reliable basis to the Ohio higher education community.

OhioLink Resources down

OhioLink is experiencing some technical difficulties that might not be resolved until next week. This will affect your article searches. The Electronic Journal Center (EJC) is offline. Full-text articles cannot be accessed with the Find It! button you're used to using. You can continue to use the databases for article searches.

Don't forget the possibility that Muskingum College Library may own the journal you are looking for. One of the easiest ways to check our subscriptions is to use our online catalog. Simply perform a title search like you sometimes do for books, but enter the journal name for the title.
