Please be aware that UAL links are currently not appearing in Google Scholar. There was an issue reported by Google which has been resolved, but due to the timing that Google uses to update holdings, users will not see UAL links appearing in Google Scholar until Thursday of next week – 27 November.
Apologies for any inconvenience caused and our supplier is working with Google to ensure this doesn’t happen again.
Unfortunately over the last week there has been a problem with new (unregistered) users gaining access to Euromonitor Passport via the Shibboleth link that is on the Databases A-Z List: https://www.portal.euromonitor.com/Portal/protected.aspx?entityID=https://idp.arts.ac.uk/entity
This was reported to our supplier as soon as we were aware but it is taking their developers quite some time to get this problem fixed. However, we have received confirmation from their Tech Support that, in the meantime, if a new user wants to use Euromonitor on-campus, they can do so by registering their details via the IP portal login: https://www.portal.euromonitor.com/portal/account/login
The only thing to bear in mind is that, once the Shibboleth login is restored, you will need to re-register via this route. There shouldn’t be a problem with duplicate accounts.
Our apologies for any inconvenience caused and we will let you know as soon as the situation is rectified.
