If access still does not work, it may be that UCF does not subscribe to the content. Report a problem if you think the access should work or if you need further help.
Contact your subject librarian as soon as possible so that we can begin the process of updating links.
Inventory all of the links you have in your syllabi and Canvas course pages so that we can identify which links will need to be updated.
Some examples of the types of links which need to be updated are those which include the following strings within the URLs:
This is not a comprehensive list of examples. If you send us lists of all the library resources to which you are linking then we will review them all to determine which ones need to be updated.
You can contact your subject librarian for assistance in fixing links. This "Fixing Links" pdf provides some specific examples for various databases.
If you can log in to WebCourses but not into Library Accounts, try these steps:
If the link takes you to the publisher web site but asks you to pay or to login for access:
If the link asks you to login and then goes to an EZproxy page that says Site Unavailable via EZproxy:
The UCF Libraries switched from EZproxy to OpenAthens as our service for logins to online library content. EZproxy was our service for off-campus login for many years, so you may find links that still try to use it.
If the link shows a warning that says Your connection is not private:
Modern sites and services use https to encrypt and secure connections. The links will start with https:// and they will check for current security certificates for sites. Old links that start with http:// (not secured), and sites that do not have current security certificates will trigger the warning. UCF's old EZproxy links do not have a current certificate and will trigger the warning.
NOTE: Other sites may trigger the warning if they have out of date security policies. If you are confident that the site is secure, you can click the Advanced button to proceed with an unencrypted connection.
