We are experiencing intermittent difficulties with the Ebscohost databases, including Academic Search Premier and Business Source Premier. We are working with Ebsco to fix this problem. If you are unable to access an Ebsco database, and are located on campus, try this link: Ebscohost and click on the Ebscohost Web link at the top of the page. If you are not on campus, access will be restored when the problems are fixed.

This problem has been fixed

OSU Libraries has established a trial of Morningstar Library Edition (login=oregonstate; password=library). This database combines fund and stock information and includes:

  • 16,000+ mutual funds
  • 100+ ETFs
  • 6,000+ stocks from NYSE, AMEX,
    Nasdaq, and OTC exchanges
  • 250 screenable fund datapoints
  • 450 screenable stock datapoints
  • 2,000 Fund Analyst Reports
  • 1,500+ Stock Analyst Reports

This trial will end June 16, 2007.

Access has been restored to the First Search databases

We currently have access problems with several of our First Search databases.

This does not affect all of our First Search databases; for example, Worldcat and ArticleFirst are still available.

The databases that are currently unavailable are:

Alternative Press Index
Arts And Humanities
Business Dateline
Clase & Periodica
Contemporary Women’s Issues
Dissertation Abstracts
Media Review Digest
