Q. Why is the link to online access in BU Libraries Search not working?

  Sep 05, 2019

There are a number of reasons why online access to article may be unavailable:

  • You must be a current BU student, staff or faculty member to have access to subscription resources.
  • Check your browser - do you have a pop-up blocker enabled? This may prevent the article from opening.
  • We are constantly adding journals - and unfortunately, sometimes a publisher withdraws access to a full journal run, or recent years of a journal. It may take time for these changes to be reflected in BU Libraries Search.
  • We get journals from many different providers, and sometimes the provider's server goes down - usually for a few hours at the most. Try again later; if the problem persists, please let us know which specific title seems to be inaccessible.
  • Are you seeing the message 'there was an error loading the tab'? Refreshing your browser should resolve this problem. If it persists, please let us know.
