Order Articles downtime August 15

McGoogan Docs, the Order Articles system, will be down for a server migration on Wednesday, August 15, from 5 a.m. until approximately noon, though it may be later if problems arise. During this time, requests cannot be made and PDFs cannot be retrieved. If a request needs to be made in support of an emergent patient care situation, please call 402-559-7085. We deeply apologize for this inconvenience.

Update: The system continues to be down (8/16) due to data issues. However, it has been resolved and it is hoped that the system will be available early today.

CME registration issue in UpToDate

We are currently experiencing problems with new registrations for CME in UpToDate. A new user can register when accessing UpToDate from off-campus, but not while on-campus. Technical support is aware of the issue and we are working with them to resolve the problem. Otherwise, UpToDate is still operational. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.

CINAHL search results problem

At this posting, the CINAHL database is not retrieving correct results for your searches. For instance, a subject search for gastroenteritis results in articles not containing the term. EBSCO is aware of the problem and has made it their top priority.

If your CINAHL results are completely off-topic, please return to CINAHL at a later time and consider searching MEDLINE, which contains many of the citations that CINAHL does.

At the resolution of this problem, an update will appear in this post.

Update: The problem seems to have been resolved.
